Default can't root my phone

As much as I try I can't seem to get my behold 2 to respond to adb to root it. I have Linux mint and Win7 to use for this. Any ideas?

You can use Windows 64bit with adb. You just have to temporarily disable driver signing enforcement first as 64bit version of Windows won't load unsigned drivers. Use USBDeview to remove all traces of your behold II USB drivers first. Then reboot your computer and start tapping F8. Once the boot menu appears, select the option called "Disable Driver Signing Enforcement...". Then proceed as normal (install drivers, adb blah blah blah). Doing this will only disable driver signing enforcement for the current Windows session.

The bios has nothing to do with it. All you do is keep tapping f8 immediately after turning the computer on. You need to actually restart the laptop, not hibernate, sleep, or hybrid sleep. If that still doesn't work, use bcdedit to make the changes. See here for instructions.

The adb command is not found and im in the folder I get this when I try to enter the command

linuxmint tools # adb push try3 /data/local
No command 'adb' found, did you mean:
Command 'cdb' from package 'tinycdb' (main)
Command 'gdb' from package 'gdb' (main)
Command 'aub' from package 'aub' (universe)
Command 'dab' from package 'bsdgames' (universe)
Command 'zdb' from package 'zfs-fuse' (universe)
Command 'mdb' from package 'mono-debugger' (universe)
Command 'tdb' from package 'tads2-dev' (multiverse)
Command 'pdb' from package 'python' (main)
Command 'jdb' from package 'openjdk-6-jdk' (main)
Command 'ab' from package 'apache2-utils' (main)
adb: command not found
linuxmint tools #

I already text file the wiki said you should and it still does this.

First off, you need the Android SDK to have adb.

Second - try3 used a hack that was fixed on the BH2 months ago. To root now you need a modified recovery or kernel image and the Windows only software "Odin" to flash it.

Sorry I didn't mean to sound so.


With adb make sure that either the tools directory is in your PATH environment variable or call the program with it's path explicitly, i.e.
Code:
/home/nu11u5/android-sdk_r06-linux_86/tools/adb
IIRC you have to modify a system file so that it will properly detect the BH2 as an android device since it uses a different ID (go Samsung )
