Don't extract the file(s) from the tar that you download, the file that you download is what you need. Load into the pda setting in odin flasher!

Samsung Behold 2 - New Working Behold 2 Owner

I wasn't able to get any help from tmobile or att (current provider) to get a unlock code. Craigslist to the rescue. I found a local shop that took care of it for me. Now i can make/receive calls. My contacts are all gone and i haven't tried to text yet. Its charging now, then i'll start adding contacts. Anyone know if i can use the gps in there without having a data plan? I'm really interested in the runkeeper app i saw on the android market.

I don't use the phone much at all.

Samsung Behold 2 - Hearing Buzzing Sound Inside Phone / Get Rid Of It

I have an unlocked samsung behold ii on at&t and i was just wondering if anyone else has noticed a buzzing sound when they use stuff on twiz. Whenever i click on any of the 4 buttons on the bottom (dialer, contacts, web, or quicklist), click anything in the quicklist, or send a text using the stock samsung messaging, i hear a small buzzing sound coming from inside the phone. Something similar to the sound of a hard drive reading. I thought it might be the processor working extra hard to use the stuff samsung put on it or something. Anyone else hearing it? The phone is only a couple months old.

Samsung Behold 2 - Phone Won't Connect To Google At All / Fix It

I got the phone from my sister. I figured out how to change the username for google, but now it is saying that my sim card doesn't support it or something.

I have the correct data plan from t-mobile, i've triple checked

T-mobile is no help. The girl i spoke with (twice in one day, what are the odds) had no clue what she was doing and tried to convince me i had the behold (1) - and told me i had to change to a non-android data plan. So i am very frustrated, and i just want google to work!

Any tips? Anyone up?

Samsung Behold 2 - Difference Between Galaxy Rom And Behold Rom

I just got a behold ii so i decided to join the forums. First off thanks to bh_man for all his hard work. I have succefully rooted and flashed my bh2 but i was in a rush to use my phone and i didnt take the time to see which rom would be better for me so i went ahead and flashed the galaxy rom but what im trying to figure out is what are the main differences between the two roms. I tried reading around but i couldnt point out the main differences.

If anyone can help me out that'd be great. Oh and btw does vibrate work on the behold 2 rom?I also see that the galaxy rom has a kernel update by bh_man, but i have no clue on how to update it. Any help?

Restore Original Firmware For Samsung Galaxy S2 (at&t)

So i upgraded my galaxy s2 to 4. 0. 3 and it worked, except now my search, back buttons don't work, and i can not send and receive calls, they dial and i can answer but you can't hear anything on either side, i am on at&t so surprise surprise i guess. At this point i just want my phone working, how can i downgrade to the factory firmware - or - get my other features working with 4. 0. 3. Goolged around and there are a million links about this stuff that go no where.

How Do I Restore Stock Apps On Samsung Galaxy Ace?

I've got gt-s5830 phone running 2. 3. 3. So far the phone is working perfect. I was messing around the other and deleted some stock apps by error. I used ti backup for this. I would like to restore a couple of them back, so i used the restore function in ti backup, but for some reason it did not work. Did not give any errors, just rebooted without the app being restored.

Anyway, i believe i have 2 options.

1). Flash 2. 3. 3 which i found - droidangel.

2) upgrade to 2. 3. 5 which is also located at the above page. But i am not sure what 2. 3. 5 would be best to use. I'm in the uk, using a vf contract with a unlocked phone.

I have no issues on flashing, but i don't want to flash using the wrong rom and messing it all up.

Samsung Behold 2 - What Is Your Favorite Home Ui

What is your favorite home ui? Seeing as you have more choices in 1. 6 it gives you a chance to try such home ui's as freshface and ahome mini. I still have gde installed but these other two are pretty good and free.

Samsung Behold 2 - Ota 1.6 Tweaked

Behold ii ota 1. 6 tweaked v3
This is version 3 of my tweaked rom, speed was the goal.

Wifi tether:
Now have wifi tether working great with the free barnacle wifi app!

Barnacle wifi tethering. Testers needed

Ok i think roots fixed for real now!

Right, so hopefully this is the last little root problem. I did a bunch of stuff to figure out what the *** was going on, so i'll just have you do it all.

Extract superuser.apk and su from this and place them in a directory.

Adb push superuser.apk system/app

Adb push su system/bin

Then i ran ad free and what do you know. Got root again.

Seems the "root" of the problem was with nu11u5's su and superuser.apk not being exactly the same as the superuser.apk that i had installed by default. Must be a diff version?

Google sync fixed in contacts app - [url]
Adb push contactssignedm.apk system/app

#-Changes-# (from previous tweaked)
* Rooted kernel - thanks to nu11u5
* Latest adw launcher
* New contacts ( much faster) - was a pain in the ass
* New dialer (much faster!) - Old dialer remains but the new dialer is default.
* Removed rest of bloatware
* Stock htc battery icons
* Various tweaks here and there

Download: 2shared - download bh2_tweakedv3. Tar.rar
Download, unpack and odin as pda just like before.


Behold ii ota 1. 6 tweaked v2

This is based off of my last rom, focused on performance enhancement and misc things.
New! Thanks to nu11u5 we now have root!

Download rooted kernel here:

#-Changes-# (from previous tweaked)
* Optimized all png files for faster performance
* Zipalligned the apk's
* Remapped the cube button to search like in bh_man builds
* Changed the launcher (seriously this time)
* New mms (much better!), Removed old twmms. (No fc's or problems)
* Changed font.

#-Whats not done-#
* Root.

2shared - download bh2_ota16_tweakedv2. Tar.rar

Flash with odin same as before.


This is the official ota 1. 6 update but without bloatware.
Twiz is not as completely removed as in bh_mans builds due to lack of a working rooted kernel but i figure this will do very nicely in the meantime!

* Removed most of the tmobile bloatware
* Updated framework-res
* New alarm clock
* Nswplayer from take5
* Music player from take5
* More internal space for apps
* Faster

- To get the new launcher, simply download it from the market. It's free. Adw launcher.

#-Whats not done-#
* Root.
* Complete removal of twiz.

Runs pretty quick compared to stock imo.
Didnt have time to reflash this so hopefully it works just fine
- Really tired.

2shared - download bh2_ota1. 6_odin_tweak. Tar.rar

Flash with odin.
Should work fine in pda.

Samsung Behold 2 - Swype From Take5

I'm hoping that someone can pull the swype apk from take5 if anyone that's using it knows how to do so. I went back to galaxy simply because it's awesome, but the swype i've always used is now giving me a "you must upgrade" error message and not allowing me to swype.

Motorola Droid X - Use Univerisalandroot - How To Get Phone To Restore A Backup

This might seem dumb and noobish ( i am new to android, had dx for a month from a bb) but what are the best steps after i use univerisalandroot. I keep seeing it suggested to back up, but how is the best way to do that? Do you save a backup on the sd or on a pc? How do you get the phone to restore a backup? I think these are the questions that are holding me back from rooting but i might have others.

Samsung Behold 2 - Sunkist And Usb Debugging

A couple of weeks ago my daughter (3 years old) turned her mommy's sunkist over on the coffee table which happened to be where my phone was sitting since the night before. Needless to say i freaked out a little bit. Luckily the battery had died and there was no power to the phone at the time. After pulling everything out of it and laying it on a dehumidifier rack (one you put in your basement not the one you make jerky in) for about 2 days so it would dry out. When i turned the phone on it worked and i was happy. I did notice that i had some issues with charging but for the most part it worked. The usb debugging notification would come on when it was hooked only to a charger which is wrong. This went on for a day or so and then stopped.

3 days ago i had the phone on the towel rack in the bathroom while taking a shower. When i got to work the phone would not shut up. It is constantly in and out of usb debugging. Any time i touch it it goes nuts. This primarily happens here at work. Very seldom does it happen at home. I disassembled the phone, removed the back cover, the battery, sim, sd, took the screws out of the back, pulled the boards apart at the top and cleaned them all with pipe cleaners and alcohol really well and reassembled the phone. It is still doing the same freakin thing.

My question is. How is usb debugging initiated hardware wise? I know you go to apps>development and all that jazz to enable it. My question is what exactly happens within the phone to signal that it is time to initiate a connection. The phone doesn't think it is charging when this happens but it does reset the "time since unplugged" counter whenever this happens.

Any clues? Also, what else can i use to clean the internals of this phone that will remove any type of soda drink syrup. I have a feeling that there is a connection happening somewhere that is based on localized moisture content of surrounding air. Sunkist contains a fair amount of citric acid which when allowed to dry creates more resistance in a circuit. When exposed to even small amounts of moisture can open a path for current to flow.
