Got mine rooted.

Lots of reading through this thread. I was able to root my girlfriend's phone tonight using "Zerg Rush" and following the instructions on androidauthority.

I know that the instructions on that page are probably in this very long thread a few times. I wasn't going to try to change the factory rom, just wanted root. (I'm new to android in general, having just gotten in on the first round of nexus 4's last week. Still a newb!) But I did have odin and heimdall and the factory roms on standby thanks to this thread.

So thanks everyone!

Amazingly, I'm back up and running.

This command seemed to make the difference:

heimdall flash --kernel zImage --recovery zImage

My uneducated view is this somehow fixed my partition - but I defer to those of you who actually know something (if it makes a difference, the zImage was from my phone originally - an old backup - i.e. it was not something I downloaded). After I did this, I reflashed everything (w/o repartitioning) and was able to reset my system in recovery. Thanks for everyone's help.

how and from where you make this command? I have the same problem

thanks

Im sorry if im being impatient, but are there any confirmed roms out there? It seems like i got the one phone which doesnt have any roms

Yeah I find this odd since this is basically the same phone as the galaxy s1 there is arearom but theft didn't really do much from stock... this would be a very usable phone if the Wi-Fi worked worth a damn.

    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.

    Link for STOCK FILES below guys.I put it in zip format to keep the size down for upload lol.Extract it, then extract the tar file and you will get the factoryfs.rfs, recovery.bin and zimage.Hopefully this site doesn't get shut down by the feds :D.

    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.
