Default [RECOVERY] Samsung Exhibit 4G FIX SOFT BRICK!

*****Note:****** I am not responsible that you bricked your device, because your the one who did it. Therefore these are steps gathered from others threads and i do not claim ownership of any of these files.*

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.

Requirements:
-ODIN
-TMO_T759_ADB_Tether_Drivers
-IZark
-Attached file "Samsung_Exhibit_Stock_Recovery_2.3.3"
-Soft bricked Samsung Exhibit 4G

Guide:
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.

No, we do not. We need a Exhibit/Exhibit II forum.

This is the wrong forum... But this is a good starting point, imho, for exhibit 4g owners to get a chance to start their own forum.

If you own an exhibit 4g, report DeathW1sh's OP, in the drop-down select move/maintenance and in the textbox request for an exhibit 4g forum.
EDIT: Actually, I noticed that you guys have a forum request thread as well: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1190716
I would just do both.

Ya got to start somewhere... Right?

Keep up the good work, hopefully you guys get a forum of your own.
