    Yes that was it, it totally recognizes it. BUT one part I don't understand. After you reboot you are now galaxy, right? So when I try to do the Mms.apk I can no longer get into PC studio mode and adb devices brings up nothing. How do I shell in when I'm in galaxy mode so I can get the Mms updated? Thanks.

    Ok, got everything running, finally, after three days, and it's beautiful. Thank you kam and company, it's pretty amazing. A couple htings to help those starting out...

    1. I used Unlockr.com to help guide the adb process.
    2. The hardest thing, for me, was to get the computer to recognize it when you "adb devices". Three things to do when in Touchwiz, A. USB debug, B. Unmount USB, 3. (MOST IMPORTANT) go to settings and under storage, I think, there is a selection for USB mass storage, select this to Samsung PC studio mode. That was what I was missing.
    3. Instead of copying the "blocks", which I did the 2nd time I tried and it messed up, try copying line by line individually hitting enter after each line.
    4. Take your time after hitting enter, some of the lines a program happens and you don't want to overwrite something.
    5. After the reboot do the factory reset
    6. Since you did a factory reset you have to go in and do the usb debug and dont mount all over again. AND go to Settings>About Phone>Additional Settings>mass storage only.
    7. Do the Mms and go slowly again, then reboot again to be safe.

    Thanks again from :Dthe noobiest noob, these 7+ pages helped a TON.

    Thanks for sharing that--I'm as noob as they come to hacking (and Android) but I'm hoping to do this soon myself. The community is vital--and in the case of the BH2, all too small...

    Are we still without vibrate?

    Those of you who were having weird mounting/unmounting issues with the SD card, once going with the galaxy rom, do you still have this issue?

    Vibrate is still not working. However the Mounting/unmounting issues with the SD with the original behold program is now gone!! :)

    Glad to hear about the SD card issues... while I was originally going to wait until 2.0 to root, I think I may just go with it as soon as vibrate is working.

    What's the deal with the camera? With the default app, do we still have control over the flash, focusing rules, and that stuff? Are there any good 3rd party camera apps that can take the place of the factory one?

    This seems pretty self explanatory but would someone mind helping me out with this? I've never flashed/rooted an android and don't want to brick the phone... any assistace would be awesome!

    alexis, Your best bet is probably going to be joining the irc channel and asking for help there. Click "Chat Live!" above and type /j #behold2 or use your favorite irc client and join #behold2. With help from the folks there I was able to get it rooted and flashed in ~10 minutes.

    Ok before I get started on this do I need to root my phone first following the steps in the persistent root thread first...

    http://androidforums.com/samsung-behold-2/22470-persistant-root.html

    ...or does the first few blocks of code in this thread accomplish doing that?

    I have been considering rooting my phone but hadn't because I had not decided to dl any apps yet that needed it. Now I will root to be able to use this rom and get the speed out of this phone. I just need to know if I need to do the steps in the first thread before this one. It doesn't seem so but wanted to verify.

    Has any noticed how the B2 with Galaxy Rom tends to slow down over time, pending a reboot? Is it possible there is a memory leak somewhere?

    That is something inherent to Android 1.5 where apps stayed in memory.

    A msg to the moderator: I think this thread has gotten way too big to be of use, maybe make a new static thread that lists all the current steps(A noob's guide would be nice, including a list of things that dont work yet) to flash BH2 to Galaxy rom and link to this thread for discussion.

    So far I can't get the camera and music player to work. It says not responding and gives me a force close/wait option.

    Also when I go to sound & display the ringer and media volume settings are doing the same thing.

    Other than that, everything else works fine.

    Is there a fix for this?

    BTW - I did a factory reset (twice)
