    I was reading about flashing andriod 1.6 to my behold, and i saw it said "NEVER flash your phone more then once" huh? i thought when ever you installed a new ROM you flashed it? i am really confused about that..

    one other thing...my behold 2 has 1.5 on it. will putting the 1.6 with NO twiz improve the speed of this phone?? right now it is terrible..

    thanks gang.

    Dunno about that 1st part but as for the second. It'll speed it up...There's a final version for both the Galaxy and No Touch Wiz due out soon.

    Phone / Boot / PDA are All parts for ODIN Flasher....

    .OPS = Partition Mapping & Must be Loaded before Flash any File
    PHONE = AMSS which is the Radio
    BOOT = Bootloader & Download Mode among other things it controls
    PDA = This Contains the Phone Software Kernel / Recovery / Cache / Userdata

    What You Read was Misunderstood on your Part... Never Flash PHONE ( AMSS Radio ) / BOOT ( Bootloader ) More than you Need to... There is no point to flash this everytime & Could brick your Phone if the Update goes bad... Only flash when there are Updated versions of it..

    Edited
    Added .ops

    That would be the Galaxy thread.

    You can go with R8 or wait a bit for R10.

    R10 is what you're looking for then.

    Well, that depends.

    If you're comparing Stock Behold 2 1.5 with full TouchWiz (IE: The way it comes from the store) to Galaxy 1.6, it's almost night and day.


    On the other hand, if you're comparing Stock Behold 2 1.5 with No TouchWiz (One of the older ROMs) to Behold 2 1.6 with No TouchWiz (Warheads, at this point), it's not going to be quite as noticable.

    If you compare Stock 1.5 to the "Stock" 1.6 (Both with TWiz), again, not a huge difference.


    The big benifit, performance wise, is the reduction/removal of the TWiz features.
