Exclamation Thank you all for helping! Please read

FIRST OFF LET ME THANK THOSE WHO HAVE HELPED NU11U5 IN GETTING HIM THE 1.6 OTA UPDATE.

A SPECIAL THANKS GOES TO NU11U5 FOR HANDLING THE EXTRACTING AND THE CREATION OF THE unofficial OFFICE 1.6 OTA UPDATE ROM.


FORUMERS, PLEASE DIRECT ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT ROOTING AND FLASHING AND ROMS TO THE ALL THINGS ROOTED LINK LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THE FORUMS (well near the top)

Also special thanks to microhaxo for tweaking the ota 1.6 update and getting rid of all that junk in the trunk.

Oh BH_MAN, WHERE ART THOU?

WE need root and your magic to make this the best rom for the beholdII.

Care for your last curtain call rom for the behold II before saying goodbye forever??

Either way, thank you for all you have done for us.

PS: We will help anyone who didn't get the update, to flash their phones, its really easy, so don't give up if you were waiting for the OTA update.

First flash the phone, and if you dont like it, then give up lol

i saw in a forum that he would help root it, i think.

Also, the man can make a rom with his eyes closed, he's a genius!

he probably knows the behold inside and out (except for hardware source code drivers)

This has been "one ole ride"... While I cannot say that I have enjoyed it, I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the wonderful people who along with me, purchased and or believed in the Behold 2's potential and who contribute daily to this forum.

So to all the Behold 2 gang - Thanks for hangin' in there. We tried. We even fussed and fought. But underneath it all, we only wanted this sucker to *work* as promised and presumably designed. We were "had" by Samsung. period.

To the root team led by BH_Man and of late Nu11u5, you guys are the BEST!!!

While I will never in my right mind purchase another Samsung phone, Android OS on the other hand is the greatest thing to happen to the industry since the StarTac - It changed the face of the industry and I am totally an Android-ette, LOL.

I am excited to see where the industry and Android are headed. I think GOOGLE has always had a plan. I watch what they *do*...They are buying up stuff (companies) and opening up stuff (i.e. Google Voice) - I wouldn't be surprised to hear that one day they purchased a cell phone carrier. Why "rent" when you can OWN? LOL

Btw, I did not get the update and so I am finally giving up the Behold 2 and moving on. I thought I might try to suffer through until August when the Desire drops but, I can't hang one minute longer than I have to with this brick. It is just unbearable. I still think that the Behold 2 is pretty. I will miss that part of it. But I will get over it, LOL

Dude, why are you giving up?

Don't you realize what this post is regading to????

We have the ota update and now we are making it possible for everyone to get it.

The wait is over!

If you are crying because you weren't lucky to get the ota update, then just flash the phone.

Its the exaxt same update that you would get over the air!

A. I am NOT a dude. LOL
B. I am not crying. I'm just not willing to put any more effort into this phone.
C. This was a thank-you thread, yes? I thanked some people.
D. I simply stated that not having received the update was it for me. I'm not going to root. I would, if I had no alternative at all, but I do. I appreciate your concern or interest. I appreciate all that everyone contributed on the B2. It's just time to go for me. No biggie.
E. I am actually happy that *something* was able to be done for those who are continuing on with the B2.

Yeah that's kind of crazy... he kept the phone when the bad news of 2.1 was announced, but he is getting rid of it when he didn't get the 1.6 OTA update? He could have flashed Eugene's 1.6 a month ago... WTF

smh...

Let's not get our undies in a knot over this, shall we?

She is not a *he*...She ain't gonna root. But that is not the reason for this thread nor was it the crux of my post.

Grennis - I have put up with this phone since December of last year. I'm simply moving on. No big deal.

Wow, let the girl do her thing. It's just a damn phone. She's not leaving you for your best friend or anything.

Wait. Wait one second. Are you having an affair with the iPhone 4? You slut! I hate you!

I was fine with the breakup until I knew Mac was involved. Now I'm pissed.

ROTFLOL. Street? Street? Um, back away from the keyboard. No more stimulants tonight either. We are going to turn off our little monitor and let our eyes rest. In fact, go into the kitchen...grab no. Wait. No grabbing. It might have sugar in it...that would be DISASTROUS. Ok. Just rest. I'll tell you a bedtime story.

Once upon a time there were 3 major cell phone manufacturers...And they lived simultaneously in the global village and all the people were vewwy happy. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

For the record, there is no need to Root the phone to use ODIN.


I've flashed this phone at least 10 times in the last six months, and not once have I ever rooted it manually (Some of the ROMs came pre-rooted)

ok mr street, here is what gets me,


she/he (jk) is on the behold forums, doesn't want to flash, is saying thank you to the people that helped make the ota possible, and yet she doesn't even try to get the 1.6 oem rom.

she says that since she was not lucky enough to receive the update, now she is going to retire the phone.

Its like saying, "since i didn't WIN the turkey, I'm not going to have thanksgiving, even though there are people giving out free turkeys"

Its the exact same turkey!

So had she of received the OTA update, she would have not retired the phone, and had been a happy camper.

and the fact that she is never going to use the phone again is perfect reason to pratice flashing it and messing with it. Who knows, she might like it?

The point is that life is too short to restrict yourself from trying things.

"No i dont want to bungee jump because the cord might snap"
"No I dont want to sky dive because the parachute might not work"
"No I dont want to flash my phone because I might brick it"

If your behold II breaks, she still has another phone, its not like she is losing a phone forever. Honestly, there is like a 1% chance of bricking a phone.

Theres a higher chance of getting into a car accident or getting a disease.

Here is my quote for you,

"LIVE LIFE AND FLASH!" (not the most appropriate quote, but a good one to live by"

OK, Mr. rleal2010, here's what gets me:

You're really upset over someone, someone you don't even know, not doing what you want...with a phone...that's not yours.

Real. Let it go. You're new here. In order for you to see the big picture, you'd have to follow our posts back from last year up till now. You're excited. I'm happy for you and all who finally got the update. But seriously, It's not that deep. Let it go.

My deal was, after all my problems and mayhem with this phone that I was ASKED to wait to receive the OTA update to see if it might fix the problems with the phone. The phone was incapable of getting it OTA. I get a new phone. End of story.

There is a reason that others dropped the B2 and got new phones for themselves. Those who are waiting for the galaxy are moving on also. Their choice. Choice. It's a good thing.

BH_man needed to be acknowledged for his dedication to doing all that he could to breathe life into the B2. He hung with it until they hit the latest hurdle and it was made clear that there would be no drivers released to update the phone past 1.6 - But that is another story.

Its the Fourth Of July weekend. I'm having Bar-B-Que. Happy holiday! Enjoy your turkey (as you called it).

I'm saving a few firecrackers to blow up my Behold II if I don't get the update on Monday. I'm not rooting, I'm exploding it. I'll post the video here.

omg, its not the behold's fault that sammy neglected it.

just flash the freaking thing and you will experience the behold at its best.

Or better yet, go look through the other forums and find a kid that is posting

"i wish I had an android phone, I would be happy with 1.5"

I believe that people here pull together to help make this a more enjoyable ride. I've seen people sticking together and helping each other the entire time.

Sure i'm new compared to some of you, however I have been taking all the information into account. I have had my ups and downs with flashing the phone, making a few friends (few enemies), but i have enjoyed my time.

Why dont you try to flash it, if you brick it, then blow it up.

I mean what would happen if you actually succeeded in flashing the phone ??? omg, then you could get yourself the oem 1.6 update and actually enjoy the phone?!?!?!

Look i'm not a samsung lover, I despise them, but right now I'm trying to stick up for opportunities to learn. At least just try to root/flash before you blow up the thing.

Even if you succeed in rooting/flashing, I dont care if you blow it up afterwards.

But it just sounds silly that "if i dont get the update OTA, then i'm going to blow it up"
Some people here have worked hard to get you the chance to flash your phone and you want to thank their hard work by blowing up your phone?

ok nevermind, i understand some people just like to light me up lol

I can't really JUST let it go.

I have a new mytouch slide, and its perfect to my eyes, no fc's no nothing.

But just because my phone world is perfect, that doesn't mean I dont look back and look at all the people struggling with their new behold II.

I want them to have an enjoyable experience too.

Also, the behold II has every reason to be rooted. No more updates for it ever again.

I havent rooted my slide because i'm afraid of not being able to get froyo when it gets the update.

but like i said, the behold is different, it wont get froyo from ota ever. It might one day get it through a rom, if we can find those drivers or if we can translate drivers from another country for a similar samsung device.

Also, I dont want new members to be afraid of flashing their phones. I was extremely afraid because I was new.

The process is extremely easy and when the newbies see that the oldies here haven't attempted flashing their phone, how much encouragement will that bring them?

I guess sometimes i care too much.

I understand and applaud your passion. But you must understand that we have run the emotional gamut with this phone since it launched. Battle weary? Yep!

We have all been where you are right now at one point or other. Some of us are just on the other side of the curve. We got on the B2 bus, took the ridiculously bumpy ride only to find out it wasn't going anywhere.

Rooting/Flashing/Mod-ing this phone has been the only hope it ever had of living up to its potential. For those who are keeping the B2, 1.6 is said to improve speed. Some are reporting abysmal battery life, reduction of system memory and the ever present rebooting, even after the update, however.

I encourage you to keep your zeal intact. It is refreshing. Aesthetically speaking, I have always thought the B2 was a pretty phone. As for me, it is way past time to move on from it.

as i've said before, im one of the rare gems who have always loved his behold 2. love it.

i never flashed or anything..got tired of waiting and i flashed it to oem 1.6. was an awesome learning experience. i hope theres a root for 1.6 oem because i'd like to root the phone for more app space.

i also wonder if theres a custom rom that leaves the original stock twiz camera.

oh dear god. its 5:30 am and im addicted. i just tried out 3 different roms..thinking im gonna stay with the galaxy 1.6 rom. i dont care about vibration, and my main concern with the camera was that there would be flash. yay! as long as i keep my 5mp camera with superfine settings, im good. and a nice goodie bonus was that using the videorecorder, i can make it so while recording video that flash stays on! nice!

though one more rom i have yet to try is bh mans take5 rom..

oh man why didnt i do this sooner!? new life has been breathed in to my phone.

The take5 is the latest and best of the no touchwiz roms.

It has the beholdII stock touch camera/video recorder

And its pretty fast. Allof the no touch wiz have a dialr problem but some people say that they have never seen or noticed it.

I have take 5

I just want to chime in but not to make anyone upset. I did it, last night, using ODIN. It took me a while and bothered several forum members, simply because I did not read the Readme.pdf file carefully. The whole process should take less than 10 minutes, and everything was included in the zip file. It did not root. I got 1.6. If I can do it, anyone can.

Cool

Fireworks will be on sale tomorrow. Does anyone know what the biggest explosive is now? I might buy a large rocket to strap it to for added effect. I'll YouTube the whole thing.

OMG, my neighbor totally hooked me up. He's got some illegal stuff from Mexico that you're supposed to have a class b license for. These are better than the big ones you saw, because they're just as powerful, but not as high, so there's going to be totally in your face.

I'm guessing with my zoom lens on my camera you'll be able to see my Behold 2 in the air right before it explodes. I can't wait for tomorrow!

Well I'm glad for one thing,

Now that streetman doesn't have a behold II, he won't need a reason for comming back to this thread, unless he is like those old high school jocks that come back to watch football games even after he graduated, and talks about all the things he did in his days.

Ill give him the benefit of the doubt tho.

Going to sleep with one last hope that this will be the night I get the update. I'll be sad to see this thing go, but we tested the camera (34X's zoom) along with my old phone and one of these shells, and this is going to make for an amazing YouTube video. Expect 100,000 hits or more.

yes thanks for the official 1.6. I went back to the take 5 no touch wiz though, because i hated that touch wiz crap and bloatware.

HTC sense is the best proprietary home screen from any manufacturer.

I had a Mytouch 3G Slide, which crushed this phone in every which way, but the reason I kept the behold 2 is because it is the only Tmobile branded Android phone that can use web2go $10, tzone $5.99 or preferred $5 unlimited internet3g.

So I'm not complaining as long as I'm not paying $30 a month for data, if I'm forced to pay that, I would be moving on as well, but until then.. BEHOLD 2!!!!!

Maybe. I might trade it for a Rooted Galaxy with WiFi tether.

BTW, I was laughing my ass off as I was torturing you. Sorry if it was a bit much. I am easily amused, and you provided many a laugh.

Torturing?? I just felt a tickle.

There are jokes, and there are lies. Mexican fireworks? Class B no less (whatever that is) and a 34X's zoom lens? I got two huge rants (#22 and #23) right after my post (#21 in this thread). I win.

'twas fun. Now I'm bored. And I've still got a Behold Deuce.

See you kids around.

Sense isn't bad, but TWiz 3.0 is better than anything out there hands down.

I also had a MyTouch Slide, but comparing it to the BH2 is like comparing apples to oranges. I got rid of the Slide because of the shoddy construction. I didn't feel good about it considering HTC's history of poor build quality in their devices. Samsung actually owns HTC in this department, which is why my BH2 days end on Wed.

Hey dont come in here talking down about the mytouch slide.

That phone is very darn good phone. Yes people have complained about "some dust" underneath the screen, and others have complained about a wobbly phone when the physical keyboard has been extended, but let me say this to all.

My Slide has not fault. It has not dust underneath the screen and its not wobbly at all. Granted that I actually take care of phone and treat it like glass.

If my phone works great, then I'm happy. I'm not going to start getting all paranoid about what others say their mistreated phone do.

You might have been delt a bad card, but I have not.

I'm waiting for HTC's project Emerald, whoot whoot

I was referring to his comparing of the Slide and the BH2. The Slide is infinitely better than the BH2, even though they are both mid-range devices. I was pointing out that HTC has a history of crappy construction on their phones. The Slide is following that history too, hence the numerous complaints. That doesn't mean all of them are bad though.

But that wasn't the point of the post. I was just responding to his opinion of Sense and him previously owning a Slide, like myself.

So how much is Samsung paying you anyways?

And OMAP > hummingbird (which is sadly > the snapdragon my Droid Incredible has) But for most people in real world use, they're all basically the same (except there are DRIVERS for Snapdragon and OMAP).
