Info 2 Important brick risk

DO NOT attempt to activate swap on exhibit 2 using this method http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1659231
It will cause a hard brick to the point of NO RETURN
NO DOWNLOAD MODE
phone gets recognized as qhsusb_download aka Qualcomm testing mode... IT WILL BRICK
This happened to me

Farewell Galaxy Exhibit/ Exhibit 2 users

Default Had exactly same effect on my phone few weeks back

I just love this phone and trying to get it back. Happened after following the same article but can't blame that. I think the swapper app picked up some wrong partition to use as swap partition and deleted it.
