    I have never flashed a phone before. I followed instructions for ODIN. I installed the ADB drivers as indicated. (I had them installed on my windows 7 laptop previously for use with PDA net.) I shut down my phone then enter recovery mode. I then plug my phone into the computer and it never shows up as connected. I have tried this on my new IBM Thinkpad R500 (windows 7 32 bit) and on an older IBM laptop running Windows XP.
    I have used these same computers and phone connection before when I added MP3's to the phone.
    When I let the phone boot up normally, both computers then recognize it and I can transfer files and such.
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled the ADB drivers multiple times, when the phone boots up normally I can use PDANet just fine so I doubt it is the connection.
    Is there something special I need to change in the phone settings before I shut it down and enter recovery mode? It seems like the phone isn't loading something as it boots into recovery mode. That it loads when I let it boot normally.

    Are you rebooting the phone into Recovery Mode or Download Mode?

    It needs to be in "Download Mode" by pressing Volume Down + OK + End.

    I am assuming for the behold 2, it is {B]Volume Down[/B], Send (as it lacks an OK button), and End.

    OK is the round button in the middle of the D-pad.

    That should get you going.

    Nevermimnd, you are correct. I apologize. The "Ok" button in this case would be the dot in the middle between send and end. Thank you!
