There’s nothing like opening up the ports with root access on your secondary device to have some fun with custom ROMS and other things alike. However, sometimes we wish we could return back to the stock Android and use the device how it comes out of the box again.
Often people associate that premium feeling with leaving the device how the manufacturer intended it to be used. Luckily we can do just that if you followed our rooting method. Now I’ll show you how to take away that root access easily.
BEFORE WE BEGIN
- There’s no point being here if you haven’t already rooted your smartphone. Once you know your Samsung behold is rooted, then you can come here and continue.
- You must have a Windows computer or laptop with a working USB port on the side. We are connecting to the computer. It must be Windows because we are installing the Odin application.
- Make sure you have the up to date Samsung USB Drivers. If the device doesn’t come up on the Odin user interface it’s likely because of the drivers.
HOW TO UNROOT THE SAMSUNG BEHOLD 2 FOR T-MOBILE
1. Download the din flasher and stock firmware here.
2. Power down the phone.
3. Boot it back up in Download Mode.
4. Connect the device to the computer but don’t touch anything yet. We”ll come back to it in a minute.
5. Open up the Odin multi-downloader by extracting the contents to the desktop.
6. Select the option that says “Behold_Partiton.ops” from the OPS screen.
7. Now open the Odin application on the desktop and click the PDA button.
8. Fetch the T939UVIJ6-PDA-CL81521-REV1.tar.md5 file from the extracted contents on the desktop. It’s inside the Odin zip file.
9. Click the Start button from inside Odin and wait for the flashing to finish.
10. Do not touch any buttons until it does.
Once it’s done, you can disconnect the phone from the computer, and your device will return back to its original state. That means you’ll no longer have the chance to run any of the root applications. You could root the device again in the future if you realized that there’s a root application that you need to use once more, but always check the version of Android you are running from the Settings application before you go looking for the correct method to get the job done.
Most rooting methods are only available for the one Android version, and if you’re not running the same version of Android that you were when you rooted the first time, that same guide you used probably won’t work again. Once you get root access, however, all the same root applications you know and love will run on your device, no matter what tool you used to get the root access and regardless of the Android version that you’re using.
