Default Is my phone bricked and el finito?

Have a Samsung Behold II. Turned off the phone to reset and then when I try to turn it back on now, it boots to a black DOS-like screen with this:

"MAGIC CODE :
DLOAD MAGIC 1 : 0X00000000
DLOAD MAGIC 2 : 0X00000000
DLOAD BBT #pg : 0X00000000

There's more lines, but I'm assuming my phone can't boot up properly anymore? I've tried a hard reset and it's still the same. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I am not familiar with the Behold II, but I'll move this thread to where they are. Hopefully your question will be answered quickly.

That forum is pretty inactive now since the phone is pretty ancient hence why I posted in this forum.

You're really not likely to get anything more in the general forums other than a lot of views and no answers. I'll put a call into the rest of the staff and see if someone can scare up a Behold expert for you.

I'm no Samsung phone expert, but isn't this what Odin is for?

From the All Things Root subforum: All Things ODIN and ADB

If I remember what everyone says about Samsung devices correctly, Odin can reflash stock images onto non-functional phones. It might restore your phone, too.

I am an Odin dummy but I would agree. Everything I find on Behold 2 bricks netwide seem to suggest flashing the BH_Man mod to fix. Then I found out he was an active member here:

{PORT} Behold 2 Stock ( No Twiz w/ Root & Busybox )

And, the stock firmware (hopefully there isn't mulitple carriers) is also linked in the OP. Luckily enough, the mod and the stock firmware APPEAR to still be active links.

So can you access download mode?

Seems to be some newer stuff in here also:

( Port ) Galaxy 1.6 on the Behold 2 Final

Also some links on last page of the thread if you run into broken ones. Luckily they're Mediafire so it appears they're still good. I'm not sure what's the best choice here tbh, just hoping something will work for you.

Thanks for the advice gents, I'll try to read through all of it when I get home from work and see if I can connect with download mode. I'm assuming that if I can't connect the phone with ODIN then I'm likely SOL?

I cannot access download mode after following instructions on the ODIN page. The screen won't go past what I wrote in the OP and doesn't respond to the hard reset.

Yeah ,your phone is almost "el finito "
As a last resort ,you can try using USB jig to boot into download mode ,but I think your bootloader/nand has gone corrupt .
If it doesn't boot into download mode with the jig ,it wont recover by any possible means available .

Other than that ,You can try to resurrect your phone at a local mobile repairing shop who have J-tag riff Box . It costs anything between 10-25$ depending on locale .
That method is specially meant to resurrect download mode and it requires soldering skills .

If it doesnt work even with a J-tag then ,the phone is dead . In that case nothing short of motherboard replacement can fix it .

Yeah, this pretty much sums it up. Once a phone can not boot into download mode there really isn't anything you can do software wise to fix it. This occasionally happens even on newer phones with lots of support.

I am pretty familiar with Odin, but about 6 months ago I had to send my wife's Nexus S back to Samsung for repairs. It happens to the best of us.
