    Hey can u do this without the USB? I dont have the cord. I bought a used phone and the guy rooted it wrong so I am trying to unroot it back to factory with both Android and TWinterface

  • Tyler

    I’m confused….If my phone is already rooted and I want to use this method to unroot, do I still have to do the unlockrs rooting guide first?

    • dcogen


      Nope. You can use this to unroot no matter how you rooted… technically…

  • Frank

    How can I check to see what firmware im running on behold 2 I cant seem to find an option for about phone in the menu after I unrooted.

    • TheUnlockr


      Settings > About phone?

  • ACurren

    I did this procedure.. And idk how to check to make sure if my phone is rooted or not., and there isn’t a about phone selection under the settings

    • ACurren,

      Download Terminal Emulator from the Market, open it, and type in su and hit enter. If it says permission denied, you are not rooted.

    Hi, i think my behold 2 was rooted incorrectly and now i have no network. i tried to reset it to factory settings by following your instructions above but the downloader give me a “please connect phones” message….it IS connected via the usb….please help

    • Nick C,

      Try loading a custom ROM first before you try to unroot.

      • Nick C

        the reason why it wasn’t rooted correctly was because i could not follow the instructions correctly from your “how to root the samsung behold 2”.

        i was able to get down to step 8 and once i was entering the commands, it gave me an error message telling me it was a “read-only system” (the exact message was unable to chmod /system/bin/sh: read-only file system)

        Also, a few lines earlier, it gave me another error:

        /data/local/try3: not found

        i also tried to use “try3.dat” and it gave me the same error

  • Mainer

    I rooted my phone and installed a custom 1.6 before removing some of the factory tmobile apps. Now I can’t get root access because the try3 is closed. Can I still downgrade the phone back to the 1.5 factory rom without root?

    • Mainer,

      You can try, it might work.

      • Jammy

        Hi Unlockr,

        I am currently running Bh_man Galaxy 1.6 and need to go back to the version in which i bought the Behold II which if I am not wrong is the 1.5 with no root.Is it possible to do this via the Rom mentioned above.
        Please help..Its really urgent.

  • vanessa

    I tried this and the phone didn’t show up in the com port mapping’s not seeing the phone. How do I fix this?
