    i just recently purchased a behold 2 from t-mo it came with 1.6 loaded but i can not stand the touchwiz, i know BH_man has a custom rom for 1.6 with no TW but as much as i have looked i cant seem to find a step by step on rooting the phone and then installing the rom. i have rotted my my touch without issue several times but this Sammy phone seems to give me nothing but issues and the root guides i have found were all for the phone before the 1.6 update if anyone out there could help me out by giving me a step by step i would be really grateful.

    also im not really a noob i am good with computers and phones i just need some clear cut instruction if anyone can help me out please let me know or if there is a guide out there i am missing please post the link...thanks everyone

    hmmm well thats strange, helpful but strange i am starting to hate samsung anyway i digress... ok well im wanting to put take 5 on my phone i have sdk on my comp and installed the adb drivers so exactly where do i go from here ...now that i know i dont need to root it should not be that hard but. my question is will take 5 work even though my phone came with 1.6 from tmo? or do i need to revert to 1.5 first? and what exactly are the steps to get everything going ( i have never used odin before ) and on my mytouch i just followed all instructions from the unlockr but there page dosent give me anything helpful for the behold 2 thanks for the info about root on this phone btw kinda wondered why i couldn't find anything on that lol

    thanks for answering, can you give me the link to it?

    and i just simply need a faster rom that has vibration and sound, if 1.6 has that then it would be awesome if you can give me the link to it.

    Use Odin I think it should be in the file you download and no you don't need root to flash the rom
