    Well I know you dont have to cause I installed a new rom but was not able to root the phone. Whats the point off rooting a phone? Why not just install a new rom and let it be. What am I missing?

    Most roms have root meaning you can delete any app on the phone (amazon mp3 store perhaps)

    To answer the original question:


    No. You NEVER need Root prior to flashing the Behold II.


    As stated above, though, most ROMs have (or can have added to them) Root access.
