Hi and welcome to the "Semi-Official" Samsung Exhibit II 4G Development thread! Please keep in mind that all Info/Links/Roms/Kernels, etc. will be updated frequently as this is a Work In Progress[WIP].

This thread has been created for Development Chat Only! Please keep all questions not related to direct development in the thread located HERE. Thank You for your cooperation!

Now let's get to the Good Stuff!!



*1*
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!





*2*
Device Tweaks and Useful Software

A. Getting Rid of Stock Software or "Bloatware"
1. swonsay's Remove Bloatware Script Find it HERE
2. System App Remover(Not free $1.02, but it works well)
3. Titanium Backup * root(free)


B. Apps that are "Safe to Remove"

-AnalogClock.apk
-Browser.apk(Only if you use an alternative browser i.e. Opera Mini, Dolphin Browser/HD, Firefox)
-Dlna.apk
-DownloadProviderUI.apk
-DualClock.apk
-DualClock.apk
-IQ-tmobile-release-signed-zipaligned-v1.1....
-JobManager.apk
-KiesAir.apk

-TetheringManager2.apk(Only if you don't use T-Mo's tethering service)
-TouchWizCalendar.apk
-TouchWizCalculator.apk
-TwCalendarAppWidget.apk
-VideoPlayer.apk(Only if you have an alternative video player i.e. Mx Video Player which I recommend as it plays all video formats and uses the Hardware Acceleration on our phone)
-VoiceRecorder.apk
-WiFi-Calling.apk(If you don't use it)
-ZinioSettingsProvider.v2.03.3331.TMobile....

Default Can't wait until we get a recovery

I will be releasing deodexed stock builds and themes as soon as somebody gets a custom recovery working for our phones.

I have added a list of "Safe to Remove" apps that I have currently verified to be 100% Safe to Remove. Will add more as I test them out, but I have already soft-bricked my phone once and am trying not to repeat the process.

Thanks again for your suggestion.

In case it is beneficial, I did manage to freeze the actual TouchWiz launcher after installing another launcher first. Phone still works fine. Regular lockscreen is still there after that. I do use MagicLocker as well so we might be able to remove that. Just need to know what file to freeze.
Phone: Google Nexus 4
ROM: Official CM nightlies
Kernel: CM compatible Faux
