I rooted my phone using Zerg Rush Root but took a few times to work. I keep getting SU binary outdated, so i read that this will fix that (Superuser-3.0.7-efgh-signed.zip) but need to be in Recovery mode to install zip. Here's my problem, installing recovery.tar using Odin. I can get into download mode on phone, but when it tries to install driver after plugging in usb cable; I get unable to install your MSM7x30. I have installed the TMO_ADB_Tether_Drivers which will work just plugging in usb cable not in download mode. I noticed in download mode; it shows
ODIN MODE
Product name: SGH-T679
Custom Binary Download: No
Current Kernal: Unknown 11

Any ideas? I know the superstars here can help!

Thanks!

Try this before going to that risky recovery route you are planning.

->After rooting via ZergRush
---- Install Busybox from Market.
------Run and install Busybox latest version.
- >After installing Busybox
----Go To Market and see if there are updates for Superuser
------Update SuperUser if update is available.
- >After updating Superuser
------Run Superuser
--------Select Menu
-----------Select Preferences
-------------Scroll Down and look for SU binary, then Tap to check for updates
---------------Update if available.

Hope that helps without having to go to recovery...because there is still no custom recovery for this phone...as far as I know...

I did try the SU Update Fixer from market but that didn't work. I'll try your method. Ok, it's erroring out at Checking md5sum....failed.
What next?

Resolved, i choosed defaults, but i should have selected /bin instead of default /xbin to install busybox. Now, it's fixed.

Now, few more questions. What's the best way to delete the BusyBox files that i installed in the /xbin and how can i get my phone to work with Odin?

I have the same handset [T Mobile Samsung Exhibit II 4G T679]. It's currently locked to T-mobile network. Please help me UNLOCK it.

The status right now is :
Network Lock [ON]
Network Subset Lock [OFF]
SP Lock [OFF]
CP Lock [OFF]

I have so far done following:
1. Installed drivers to my Windows PC using TMO_T759_ADB_Tether_Drivers.zip
2. Rooted my mobile handset using SuperOneClick
3. Rooted with Zerg rush root Working too.
4. Installed Root Explorer 2.3 [apk file to my mobile] > Installed Root Explorer
5. Checked in SU and found that Root Explorer given SU authorisation
6. Am able to now access all files (also installed Astro File Manager V3.0 as it has search option too- quite handy).
7. I tried ODIN too but it failed at very steps you mentioned above
8. Am now in process of
- Installing ClockworkMod Recovery
- Installing Samsung Kies


NOW PLEASE HELP ME HOW TO UNLOCK MY HANDSET. I have been searching internet and tired after 6 days of search as to how to UNLOCK.

I have tried Factory Reset twice so far but it doesn't help unlock (tried all the samsung hidden codes given on various websites claiming to unlock the device).

PLEASE HELP...

I am a non-developer and a non-techie (just have a bug of looking here n there n trying out stuff.. but also afraid of getting my handset BRICKED, as got this handset from US as gift for wife!!!).

Angry I have got my phone unlocked !!
I got my phone unlocked from local market (Gaffar Market, New Delhi) in India.


But I am unable to use GPRS on my mobile. I called up call center of service provider (Airtel). They said they sms-ed me the configuration. I received the SMS which read-
Airtel: Dear Customer the service is currently not enabled for your phone.



Please suggest what should I do to use my phone with 2G services (I only use 2G services as 3G services are very expensive currently in India).
