Is this what the vibrant should have been? Outside of the lower pixel count camera and the smaller (3.5") screen this phone looks like what the Vibrant should be now! Full use of ext4 from factory, gingerbread, etc etc

It already has everything else the Vibrant has, hummingbird processor and superamoled screen. Ok not completely sure if it is amoled or S-amoled, but is is 400x800 resolution though and looks pretty good

What do you guys think?

Wait for the Hercules or some other equal........... dual processor makes a huge difference on the phone

@ Oka

The only way that the dual core would somewhat make a difference is if they up and ante the RAM capacity, to atleast 1gb. Dual cores screams RAM-hog-heavy apps to utilize the power of the dual core. But if it's limited, that's a problem.

I've been reading in the SGS II forums, and it's their biggest problem, the RAM capacity.

unable to unlock exhibit 4G

I bought this phone in USA and brought it to Europe. Unfortunately I found out, that I cannot unlock it. The gingerbreak is not working here, and when I wanted to pay for the unlock code (cellunlocker), they told me that the phone is not in their database yet. :(

Sgs2 has 1 gig of memory ...I would think it would be a gingerbread issue...because the os is super memory intensive

I think that the state of the most recent GB builds with all the added features our biggest problem is lack of ram. Any upgrade at this point from the Vibrant would require 1GB of ram IMO.

It would be awesome if some devs were to pick up this device. My brother just recently picked one up and I'd love to be able to root it for him.

I came across a TMobile Exhibit that I thought was a regular Exhibit 4G that was just released.

From what I know the Exhibit 4G is supposed to come with gingerbread and when you boot it up it has the Exhibit 4G splash screen. Also comes in black or violet,

This one I have here is pearl White with a black racing stripe down the back. Also has something that looks like the Mini Cooper wing emblem around the back camera. In the about phone it has Model Number SGH-T759, firmware 2.2.1 and Build Number FROYO.UVKA2. When I boot it, the splash screen just says Exhibit and after has the Galaxy S splash screen.

I've looked everywhere on information on the device and have come up with nothing. Nothing on google nothing at the TMobile stores.

Anyone know anything about this device?

Thanks

Weird. Mines the black tmobile one with the following info:

SGH-T759
Firmware version 2.3.3
Build Number: GINGERBREAD.UVKE8

The one you are talking about appears to be different. The firmware isn't even the same...

Where did you see/find it?

Was brought to me by a friend. He found it and its a little beat. Cracked screen etc.
Its really weird. I'll take a screen shot of the about phone.
Its clearly running a build of froyo and it has a model number SGH-T759 and software 2.2.1
Also a weird thing is the case. Its pearl white with like a racing stripe down the back with Samsung and like i posted a wing emblem around the camera.
Looks like a mini cooper design.
Yeah been looking all over and nothing. So im curious to find out what exactly is this phone.
I tried calling the number on the sim but it was not inservice. Even went to t-mobile store. They were like we don't have that model.
I rooted it to see if i can get into it and see if i can find anything. And so far nothing.

That my friend, is weird. Not such model should exist that I know of. It almost looks like a proto-type promotional kind of thing.

My boot up has something different, with EXHIBIT and some smaller type about it being from T-mobile, etc. No Galaxy S stuff appears at all.

Yeah,
I was thinking as much. I'm thinking it could have been a prototype or maybe the Exhibit was supposed to be released as a regular handset, then was scrapped for Exhibit 4G.
This could be a Gizmodo iPhone 4 situation but after the fact. LOL

Just wanted more info on it.

Also the Galaxy S splash screen really threw me off.

Well, the exhibit essentially is a Galaxy s with different features, etc. In a nutshell it's a modified Galaxy S so this would point to this phone being a prototype that got lost, etc. Does it have 4g capabilities?

That makes a lot of sense.

Wonder if any of the ROMS for Galaxy S would work.

Would love to update this thing to Gingerbread, can't even find the stock Exhibit 4G roms to use.

Also can't even find glass to replace the cracked one.

Probably tell my friend to just hang on to it for a bit and I'm sure there will be more development for it.

Thanks

I find it exciting that an Exhibit 4G prototype somehow managed to get lost and photos turn up here. The Exhibit 4G is a nice device. The fact that it's essentially a modified Galaxy S (on a slight budget) was part of the reason I decided to pick up the phone for my first Android device.

Hopefully we will see some development for it very soon. I was hoping GingerBreak would be a success, but it hasn't yet. I'm definitely planning on donating as more developments come along.

Woah, dude, you seriously gotta unleash this thing into the wild. I think your friend may have stumbled across a rare gem here... maybe.

    Heres something for the ADB newbs, it pushes the zergrush, SU and all that. One click :D I took the one for the amaze 4g, added the samsung zergrush File and it works GREAT. i just ran it on my Exhibit and its very newbie proof. Just Unzip. make sure your phones connected to the PC with the correct drivers and click the .bat file. does all the work for ya.

    Be sure to hit thanks also.

    I have rebooted several times and still have root.
    After pushing and running zergRush and getting root i remounted adb and ran the following commands

    adb push su /system/bin
    adb push su /system/xbin
    adb shell
    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
    exit
    adb install Superuser.apk

    and my root has stuck just fine.

    Samsung released source codes

    Few days ago I have noticed, that Samsung released source codes for Exhibit 4G.

    As I bought this phone 3 weeks ago, and I am still unable to use it, I started wondering if I can build a new ROM without SIM lock.

    I have never played with such thing before, so I would appreciate any hints. It took me couple of hours, but I successfully built a exhibit kernel and android OS with exhibit custom modules (exactly according to the readme.txt included with source codes).

    Now I would like to flash them to my mobile, but I have to find out how to backup my current ROM... to be able to go back if anything goes wrong. I have searched, and found only instruction which required root access which we do not have.
