    Behold II OTA 1.6 Tweaked v3

    This is version 3 of my tweaked rom, speed was the goal.

    Thanks to Mastermind278 and the community we now have WIFI TETHER working great with the FREE barnacle wifi app!


    OK I THINK ROOTS FIXED for real now!

    Right, so hopefully this is the last little ROOT problem..

    i did a bunch of stuff to figure out what the hell was going on, so i'll just have you do it all....


    Extract Superuser.apk and su from this and place them in a directory.

    adb push Superuser.apk system/app


    adb push su system/bin

    Then i ran Ad Free and what do you know. Got root again..

    Seems the "Root" of the problem was with nu11u5's su and superuser.apk not being exactly the same as the superuser.apk that i had installed by default. Must be a diff version?

    Anyway hopefully this should solve your issues!

    Google sync fixed in contacts app - http://www.2shared.com/file/_xCdknIs/ContactsSignedm.html

    adb push ContactsSignedm.apk system/app

    #--CHANGES--# (from previous tweaked)
    Rooted kernel - Thanks to Nu11u5
    * Latest ADW launcher
    * New Contacts ( Much FASTER) - was a pain in the ass
    * New Dialer (Much Faster!) - old dialer remains but the new dialer is default.
    * Removed rest of bloatware
    * stock htc battery icons
    * various tweaks here and there


    2shared - download BH2_Tweakedv3.tar.rar
    Download, unpack and odin as pda just like before..


    Behold II OTA 1.6 Tweaked V2

    This is based off of my last rom, focused on performance enhancement and misc things.
    NEW! THANKS TO Nu11u5 we now have root!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Download rooted kernel here:

    #--CHANGES--# (from previous tweaked)
    * Optimized all PNG files for faster performance
    * zipalligned the apk's
    * remapped the cube button to search like in bh_man builds
    * Changed the launcher (seriously this time)
    * New Mms (MUCH BETTER!), removed old TwMms. (no FC's or problems)
    * Changed font.

    #--Whats not done--#
    * root.


    2shared - download BH2_OTA16_TWEAKEDv2.tar.rar

    Flash with ODIN same as before..


    This is the official OTA 1.6 update but without BLOATWARE.
    Twiz is not as completely removed as in bh_mans builds due to lack of a working rooted kernel but i figure this will do very nicely in the meantime!

    * Removed most of the tmobile bloatware
    * Updated framework-res
    * new alarm clock
    * nswPlayer from take5
    * music player from take5

    * more internal space for apps
    * faster

    -- To get the new launcher, simply download it from the market. It's free. Adw launcher.

    #--Whats not done--#

    * root.
    * complete removal of twiz.

    Runs pretty quick compared to stock imo.
    Didnt have time to reflash this so hopefully it works just fine

    2shared - download BH2_OTA1.6_ODIN_TWEAK.tar.rar

    Flash with ODIN.
    Should work fine in PDA.

    I've never ran no Twiz, but read that it basically just removes the drag & drop correct? Please clarify for a lamer. (Kind of sad b/c I would consider myself a techie.) Also can you provide information on how to edit/build roms? I'm a quick learner and am currently going to school for IT so it shouldn't be hard to learn. Hopefully it'll just add another Dev to the team for some awesome work.

    Edit: Holy crap you were up late working on this. That is some dedication. If you and Nu11u5 can provide me with a donate link I'll deffinatly throw down some cash for your hard work.

    ok.. I have tried to download this, but every time I hit the download link, I get a freakin ad.

    The "Download Now" button is an ad. Look further down where it says: "Save file to your PC: click here". That's the file you want.

    My Thanks to Nu11u5 and microHaXo ( I hope I got that nick right ) !!!

    Gonna jump over to this.....X-ing my fingers for someone to get root on this baby. Also, anyone know if this build suffers from the same "service" issue affecting sleep mode ?

    Awesome! What launcher are you using? I hate the stock T-Mo one.

    I'm new to updating the behold 2 and I got a question on how you guys do the 1.6 update using ODIN. Is it basically just the same as to the instructions shown by BH_MAN's update?
  9. microhaxo

    microhaxo Well-Known Member Developer

    Try going to the applications and manage applications and clear the cache of twlauncher and then go back to the home screen.

    It should ask you what launcher you would like to use, choose adw.

    behold_this Well-Known Member

    Clearing cache won't help you must clear the defaults...it's the last choice in that menu
  11. MaChix718

    MaChix718 Member

    I can't clear the cache OR the defaults. Did I do something wrong? Also, when I installed the 1.6 update using odin, I put the update in the one package box instead of the PDA. I got 1.6 installed in my phone but I just have no idea whether if it changes things.
  12. cheenachatze

    cheenachatze Well-Known Member

    Just to be sure, in ODIN I should choose PDA? (Not ONE PACKAGE like the original 1.6 OEM?)
  13. behold_this

    behold_this Well-Known Member

    Maybe try reflashing...you can check to see if it flashed correctly by checking your apps for the new launcher I believe he used adw correct me if I'm wrong cause I have not flashed this

    Got ADW to work by installing it (didn't know about installing it). Thanks for the help guys!

    microhaxo Well-Known Member Developer

    hmm, i did a direct dump with that home replacement already installed. It must save to userdata and not directly in the system..

    Anyone else not getting adw at all?

    Flashed this ROM straight from Take5. I had GDE (previously installed) and TWlauncher. About phone now shows 1.6, T939UVJA3, Kernel 2.6.29 (root@sep-56 #1). I have google maps navigation.

    EDIT: Did the one package option. Oops. Flashed to 1.5 (UVJA3) and then reflashed this ROM using pda (unchecked one package).

    Strange: About phone now shows 1.6, T939UVJA3, Kernel 2.6.29 (root@sep-56 #1, Tue May 4 19:02:25 KST 2010). I have swype.

  24. 2FR35H

    2FR35H Well-Known Member
