UNBRICK SAMSUNG EXHIBIT 4G
I'd like to post my steps that i took to unbrick my Samsung exhibit 4G when i being stupid and excited about rooting it flashed CWM using ROM manager for one of the nexus 4g version and rebooted device and got soft brick screen. Hope its helps some of you guys out like it did for me.
-Attached file "Samsung_Exhibit_Stock_Recovery_2.3.3"
-Soft bricked Samsung Exhibit 4G
Step 1: Download stock kernel zip "Samsung_Exhibit_Stock_Recovery_2.3.3" from below these steps.
Step 2: Download program IZark (i used version 4.1.6) and install program to computer. (Search Google for program download)
Step 3. Open IZark program then open file "Samsung_Exhibit_Stock_Recovery_2.3.3"
Step 4. click "tools" then click "convert archive" then change the output file location and file name looks like this
(Documents\location on computer\zImage.tar)
*Ensure the name of the file will be "zImage.tar"
Step 5. Make sure the output type is TAR (.tar) and then press OK
i left "integrity" check "on"
Step 6. Put device in download mode by powering device off, then press and hold volume + and - press and then plug into computer
*ODIN should detect the device*
Step 7. Using odin flashed new zImage.tar file using PDA button
Step 8. Odin will complete and then reboot your device into stock recovery then choose reboot system now and device will HOPEFULLY reboot succesfully.
Lazy User's: Wanna skip the steps and try my zImage file, Go for it! Im attaching my "zImage.tar" file for those whom just wanna flash it through ODIN and hopefully it works. But if not try the follow steps above.
***i am not responsable for any of the files or most of the steps. Just followed a conversation with some other XDA members and gathered the steps together to make them in easy to read thread***
Much love and cred to these following XDA members: clay21, rhynokilla, and more just cant remember.
