Thumbs up If you have received the ota update....PLEASE READ!

Update: As of today, we have received enough dumps to conti.ue on with testing. We will proceed on the phase and push out those bad boys to ya!



update has errors and it is the last update you will ever get for this phone. we have people that can help you extract the update from the phone without messing up your phone.

We are trying to tweak the update and freely distrubte it to the rest of the members who did not get the update.

Please, take time out of your day to contact NU11U5, who will help you get what he needs. Also the GREAT BH MAN has offered to help.

For the new people, bh man is a great programmer who brought us 1.6 when samsung had ababandoned us. Samsung has now left us to rot now and drool over the galaxy s.

I think I speak for the behold II community when I say that you will be honored for your time.

We need two volunteers to get this ball rolling.

Now let's get the ball rolling to get to this behold to the best it can be.

In order to get ADB, go to Android SDK | Android Developers. and dpwnload the sdk for your system.

For these instructions, store the sdk on your C:/ drive when you extract it from your folder. Also rename it to AndroidSDK. (For some reason I had to rename the first folder AndroidSDK and then when I opened it in explorer, I had another folder that was in there that I had to open to get to the tools folder)

So if you experience my (problem) then the directory is C:/AndroidSDK/AndroidSDK/tools/adb
Else it will normally be C:/AndroidSDK/tools/adb

These are specific instruction for getting adb on windows. Any questions? Just ask us!

After you have got adb down, get odin at How-to Flash using ODIN - Android Forums.

There should be a link there on the first post that says Odin and 1.5 drivers. Download, unzip and find the odin app. Its a standalone app so you just need to click and drag that one app to move it to desktop, or where you want. To run just double click it, but not now!

Make sure you have your drivers installed.

Someone else needs to help with this part for its not fresh in my mind. I know I always resort to trial and error between pc mode and storage mode. I perfer with downloading the drivers and then connect my phone and then using the device manager to install the drivers.

Anyways,

After you have downloaded the sdk (in order to get adb),
And after you Odin,
And after someone else has taken you through the process to install the samsung drivers,

THEN go to the nu11u5 link to give us what we need for the 1.6 ota update.
http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-behold-2/106345-rooting-new-ota-1-6-update-2.html#post1043832

If you have any questions, PLEASE ask.

And again thank you for your time.

By the way I think nu11u5 will simplify his instructions so any can with the update can help us, and not just the tech people who spent their lives behind a computer. We want anyone with update more than welcome to help us help you.

Busy atm or I would write up simpler instructions.

Just don't forget you also need the Behold2.ops file that comes with Odin or you can't flash.

I'd have it to you in a heartbeat, if I only had it to give. Doubt it's ever going to happen for me, though. My phone is still on UVIJ6, even though it was purchased new only 2 months ago. Been thinking about using the ODIN UVIJ6-UVJA3, to see if I can get it afterword, just haven't had a chance to take that leap yet. If/when I do, and if I did receive the 1.6, would you still want a dump of it? Or are you looking for "pure" OTA all the way?

Hi there...long time lurker first time poster. I have the OTA update for behold 2. My phone is on 1.6. Did you folks still need some help? I've never rooted my phone or anything so everything on my phone is official. I'd like to grow some guts and actually root. Let me know if you guys are still looking for volunteers, I'd be glad to help out.

I will be helping you guys tomorrow. Unfortunately I don't have USB wire with me so I need to go back home and help! But hopefully it can be figured out earlier! On the bright side I know what I am doing. ;-)

GOOD NEWS!

The 1.6 dump files I received from ikhtiar has been flashed on my phone successfully! I'm just going to test it for the next few hours and compare the files to a dump provided by slmar123 for good measure.

If I don't find any problems I will post the Odin images sometime tomorrow.

Thanks everyone who has helped out!!!!!!!!!

Nu11u5- Thanks for making the update. Personally, I'm waiting for root access because I use Titanuim Backup.
