The pesimist in me wanted to do some searching. This phone has troubled me from just after the buyer's remorse period. I went to the EB-Productions web site. There are no references to the BH2 on there. That is where BH-Man's, aka Eugene, final activities were hosted. Just saying.


EB-Productions - Home?

I thought at first it was somebody's sick idea of an April Fools joke, and not the real Eugene at all. But this happened on April 3rd. I also see a tweet from Eugene (yesterday) saying the same thing. Apparently @boloj sent him a BH2 to play with, and he's become inspired again. Thank you boloj!

Yes it's true!

I removed everything from the BH2 a long time again, but still have most of everything

I'll need to rebuild the recovery to start with, ext3 is plagued & need to get back on ext4!

other than that, check my New Feeds!

Ohh ok. i never knew that there was a sperate partition for radio and whether or not it would affect the whole operating system if messed with.

would performance increase from the froyo rom?

becuase i have an LG optimus t and it runs at 600 mhz which is not far from 528mhz so i thought since LG can run froyo and even gingerbread that this was possible.

Also would you be able to invite some dev from the other phones to help work on our phone as it would cut your work time as well as help in furhter deving on the behold 2?

STL7 is the Radio partition.. Just even mounting it & forgetting to unmount before rebooting will brick the phone.

honestly help isn't really needed at this point, the only thing I had issue with was the sound, and I've really gotten to know kernel's in general

The whole issue with my 2.2.1 was the kernel source.

what I really need is the original bh2 1.6 update.tar with pit file, I've seemed to lost that crap with the last linux crash

I'm guessing I don't have anything helpful (I know virtually nothing about this stuff), but I still have my BH2 and can extract any files you need. I also kept the UVJA3 update onepackage (.tar.md5) stuff...like I said, probably not what you're looking for, but I thought I'd offer lol

GUYS I FOUND THE RECOVERY TAR FILE!

im not sure which one this is but i can assure you its for the bh2 and flashable through odin.

this 4shared shared files include most of the BH2 updates and roms but this is the only recovery files i could find.

xxx.4shared.xxx/dir/MqPX8C-o/_online.html#dir=35876968


(REPLACE FIRST XXX WITH WWW AND SECOND XXX WITH COM)

I have the Recovery what I need is the .pit file & the stock update .tar roughly...

I'd be happy with just the .pit file for now though.

I think so, does it also have the .pit file as well?

I'll take what I can get though

thank you so much for replying with this.


I'm hoping to get started Sat. but most of the stock stuff I find don't contain the .pit file.

or BL an so forth.... Do you have a link? or do you need to upload it?

The behold 2 has 64MB of Video Ram & 256MB or Ram.. There is no Reason why is couldn't run Froyo!! or eclair for that matter!

This little nasty ass phone I think will always be my favorite phone, it's the first phone I truly start Dev. on and not just copy & paste shit so it would make me at peace to finally get 2.2 on it and show the worl this phone had great hardware and just got passed over... maybe the behold 2 can make a come back if we get this done!!

lmao...

anyways, hoping to get started on it this weekend, finishing up my SGS2 project tonight to clear my weekend for it

Eugene, you're awesome. Period!

Just the amount of work you put into all the phones and stuff, sheesh.

Okay now down to subject, did you get the the .pit file? I will look for one regardless. Second thing, you know how they said ICS was supposed to "unite" all devices? Do you even think BH2 has possible harware specs to run it? Im just curious

Thanks in advance.

I saw this thread got started up again and am very hopeful

What's the latest stable rom for the behold 2? I flashed my wife's phone with one a while back and she has contact FC and such. I wanted to flash it fresh with something more stable.

Is EUGENE373_PDA_FINAL.zip the latest stable release from Eugene?

finally got time to mess around with the BH2...

Currently got 2.2.1 running on it & trying for ICS build as well.


it's so odd that the BH2 runs so fast with anything newer than 1.6, wonder why BH2 never got that 2.x update.

this phone likely would have never failed if it had.

Heartily agree Eugene! And thanks for picking it up again. This was my very first Android phone and I am seriously bent out of shape that Samsung abandoned us so fast. (In fact I'm boycotting all their products because of this foul treatment.)

Regarding speed, IIRC Google optimized better from 2.0 onward. Or maybe you just got rid of the Samsung "value added" touch wiz interface. I know one dev of my favorite tablet, a Skytex Skypad Alpha 2 who is still running 2.3 on it. He claims ICS is much slower. (:-( It will be interesting if you get ICS going on the BH2 to see if it's slower as well.

I have ICS running but it's very slow... I figured it was the error in the background, but there could be truth as what you stated..

I would like to get a GB project going though, this phone is amazing once 1.6 is taken off it! Honestly I forgot how much I liked this phone, and once I got GAOSP 2.2.1 booting correctly the phone feels like brand new to me..

Like to find others that want to help breath new life into this device.. I 100% sure GB would run fine with 64mb of video ebi & 256mb memory!

well, I'm going to upload the 2.2.1 rom later today with kernel...

I'm also going to be uploading the ext4 recovery & kernel + rom for 1.6 as well..

once the 1.6 is on ext4 it becomes usable again lmao..

regarding testing, the 2.2.1 rom is just to show how fast the behold 2 could have been with an upgrade, kinda sicking how fast it is though.

If you need a tester, lemme know. It's been 2 years since I last touched the phone, so it's due for a good dustin off.

I would gladly give this a try--how exciting to think that this old phone might become a bit more functional! It's a beautiful piece of hardware, and I'd love to see it get some new potential.

Any links to download a 2.x Rom?

I am repurposing my old BH2 for my son to use. Would love to try the new android version.
