Now let's get to the Good Stuff!!
Rooting Your Exhibit II 4G(How-To w/drivers)
Fortunately we have been able to gain root access using the Zerg Rush method. Use the instructions below to gain root on your Exhibit II 4G.
A. Download SGH-T679 USB Drivers(I have hosted them for you)
B. Enable USB Debugging Mode on your Exhibit II by going to Settings/Applications/Development and checking USB debugging.
C. Go ahead and unzip the USB drivers from section A and plug in your Exhibit II to the Computer.
D. When the "Installing New Hardware" or "Installing Drivers" notification comes up, please direct your computer to the unzipped directory. *Some with Windows 7 will not have to worry about this as your computer will automatically install the correct drivers*
E. Download Zerg Rush Root.zip(I have hosted it for you)
F. Unzip Zerg Rush Root.zip and run the batch file(runme.bat)
G. Sit back and watch as your Exhibit II 4G is rooted!
