Hi, just wanted to report that I had success in flashing the ROM - thank you for the assistance. Perhaps you can add some clarifications to the instructions based on my noob questions, such as how long to hold down the volume button. Everything appears to be working fine. I did the gapps immediately after the O/S. What exactly is gapps? I noticed I had to go to the google play store to download gmail..

The instructions are very clear. There is yet anyone who had issues with "holding the volume button"

As for GAPPS, you can read it here

Gapps is Google apps. Flash in conjunction with the rom or after. There is many apps in the gapps

I flashed gapps expecting to find the google apps when I rebooted but I didn't find any -are they hidden somewhere? For example, gmail, I had to go to the playstore to download and install it. Is gapps the actual apps, or does it just enable you to download the google apps? Gmail was the first app I looked for in the app drawer. Once I downloaded it from the google play store, it installed fine, and is running fine too....

There are different Gapp packages with different apps in them. Most have just the base package and let's you choose what extras you want and get it from the store

Thanx for the quick response. I guess no devs have tried this model then. Everything ive searched using the model they always end up as the 679.

First of I tried to post in the Peach Sunrise Thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1435286&highlight=swap+sd&page=63) but have to few posts. If some mod could transfer question I'd appreciate it.


I flashed the Peach Rom and everything when smoothly. But when I used the SwapSD app it caused my Wi-Fi to stop working. I hit the restore to defaults option but that didn't fix the issue. Any Ideas?

Peach Sunrise is kind of outdated -- the last post from Jocala was Nov 2012, but if you really want rooted stock, doing a search through the Peach Sunrise thread it looks like other people had the WiFi issue. One person said that formatting sdcard0 solved the problem, so you might have to format sdcard0/internal in recovery and then reinstall the rom. Make sure you do a backup before formatting, such as moving nandroids, titanium backup files, pictures, .zip install files, etc, to sdcard1/external. Make sure you can see the install files in sdcard1/external in recovery, that way if something goes wrong you can always put the sd card in the computer and copy files to it. Then follow the install instructions in the Peach Sunrise OP. Good luck.

k thanks, if i start running out of space i might try it. but i have enough system memory and internal sd card memory where i don't really feel like re-flashing now.

I'm happy w/peach sunrise but what other rom do you think is also stable and won't push this phone's specs to hard?

There are several jb ROMs available which my phone (which is unchanged since I got it and only has a 4 GB external SD) runs quite smoothly on. I use slimbean, which is very stable, but there are others. This phone is very happy on jb.

Factory reset for rooted phone ?

I recently rooted Samsung Galaxy Exhibit, but still the performance is very slow. Mobile taking time to perform any operation. Will factory reset will be of any help for improving the performance ? Is there any harm to do factory reset for rooted device ?
If this is not going to help, please suggest a custom ROM which will improve the performance / stability of the device.

Thanks in advance.

Factory reset will not mess with root. It will not help stock as stock is bloated and just runs slow on this phone. For best performance either CM 11 or AOIP is probably your best bet, just remember to upgrade your recovery as per OP.

Thanks for your Input, I was just going thru CM 11 thread and seems there are still some stability issues. I would love to have 4.4.2 running on my device, but is it okay to install that as 'daily driver' or should i try CM 10 or Sleamben JB ROM.

I use the slimbean jb rom. It's stable and fast. Battery life is also ok.

    T-Mobile/Samsung have rebranded the Exhibit II 4G, giving us a new kernel, a bump to Android v2.3.6 and performance improvements (they claim) in the process. The phone we all love is now the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G.

    This stock ROM (UVLG3) is NOT vulnerable to USSD Dialer Attacks!

    Rooting
    Currently, zergrush will not root this phone's Android 2.3.6. Three known methods:

    Root Stock 2.3.6 w/o a new kernel or ROM
    root-stock.zip
    Mirror

    This zip will install Superuser, su and busybox, leaving you rooted, but otherwise no changes to your phone. ClockworkMod must be installed to flash this. So:

    1. Flash ClockworkMod
    2. Boot into ClockworkMod and flash root-stock.zip.


    Rooted Community ROM (forkable)
    t679.uvlg3.odex.01.zip
    Mirror

    (also see custom ROMs)

    Linked above is Samsung's newest release for the Galaxy Exhibit, a stock rooted UVLG3 Gingerbread ROM. Busybox is also included. You must flash it via clockworkmod. Clockworkmod can be flashed with Samsung's stock recovery.

    Custom rooted kernel
    t679-root-v1.8.zip
    Mirror

    Kernel sources

    The kernel is based on Samsung's kernel source. This kernel is rooted; if you flash it via stock recovery or cwm your ROM will be rooted with Superuser.apk, Busybox and the Galaxy Exhibit cwm-recovery installed. This kernel works with all Samsung Gingerbread releases.

    Rooted ROM Installation

    CWM Keys:
    Home key = enter
    Back key = back
    VolUp/Dwn = highlight choice

    1. Back up your data. The installation will format your data partition. I suggest Titanium Backup, available in the Market.

    2. Download & copy the current t679.uv???.deodex.0x.zip to your internal sd card (if you already have a cwm installed you may use your removable card).

    3. Install Galaxy Exhibit Custom Recovery . If you're already rooted, you may install from the command line, otherwise you may install from Samsung's Recovery. Samsung's recovery only sees the internal SD, so copy the cwm zip there if you just have stock recovery. Stock recovery sometimes takes more than one try to start.

    Easy way to start recovery
    * Make sure the cwm zip is on your internal (non-removable) sd.
    * Pull the battery from your phone.
    * Connect phone to your pc via usb.
    * Press & hold Volume-up
    * Insert battery

    Your phone will boot into recovery. Press the capacitive menu button (left bottom button) when you see the open white box and droid. Choose 'apply update from sdcard' and select the cwm zip file.

    4. Start Custom Recovery (cwm): Press & hold Vol-Up, then press & hold Power. Shortly after the plain white Samsung logo appears, release both buttons. Recovery should start after the Galaxy Exhibit logo.

    5. Select ROMwipe. This step is required!

    6. Highlight install zip from sdcard, then press Home.

    7. Highlight 'choose zip from sdcard/external sdcard, depending where you placed the download in step 2.

    8. Highlight the rooted rom zip file, then press Home.

    After you confirm your choice, installation should take less than three minutes.

    Anything you download and install is at your own risk. No guarantees or warranties are given or implied. Your first post-installation boot may be several minutes long.

    Rooted Kernel Installation

    CWM Keys:
    Home key = enter
    Back key = back
    VolUp/Dwn = highlight choice

    1. Back up your data. I suggest Titanium Backup, available in the Market.

    2. Download & copy t679-root-v1.8.zip to your internal sd card (if you already have a cwm installed you may use your removable card).

    It's recommended to install Clockwork Mod, but you can also flash the kernel from Samsung's stock recovery. Samsung's recovery only sees the internal sd, so copy files there if you don't have cwm.

    Stock recovery sometimes takes more than one try to start.

    Easy way to start recovery
    * Make sure the cwm zip is on your internal (non-removable) sd.
    * Pull the battery from your phone.
    * Connect phone to your pc via usb.
    * Press & hold volume-up
    * Insert battery

    Your phone will boot into recovery. Press the capacitive menu button (left bottom button) when you see the open white box and droid. Choose 'apply update from sdcard' and select the cwm zip file.

    4. Start Custom Recovery (cwm): Press & hold Vol-Up, then press & hold Power. Shortly after the plain white Samsung logo appears, release both buttons. Recovery should start after the Galaxy Exhibit logo.

    5. Highlight install zip from sdcard, then press Home.

    6. Highlight 'choose zip from sdcard/external sdcard, depending where you placed the download in step 2.

    7. Highlight the kernel zip file, then press Home.

    After you confirm your choice, installation should take less than a minute.

    Anything you download and install is at your own risk. No guarantees or warranties are given or implied.

    SwapSD
    SwapSD This simple app allows you to swap internal "usb storage" (aka /sdcard) and your removable sdcard (aka external_sd) so your larger "external sd" is mounted as "/mnt/sdcard/" and the smaller sd internal memory is mounted as "/mnt/sdcard/external_sd". This is done by changing a file called vold.fstab in your phone's /etc folder. The original device vold.fstab file is backed up to /etc/vold.fstab.backup when this app first runs. Your data on /mnt/sdcard and /mnt/sdcard/external_sd is not touched in any way whatsoever.


    Dropbear (flash via cwm)
    is a software package that provides a Secure Shell-compatible (ssh) server and client. It is designed as a replacement for standard OpenSSH for environments with low memory and processor resources, such as embedded systems. This archive also includes the scp and rsync utilities.

    Galaxy Exhibit cwm-based recovery v6.0.1.2

    6.0.1.2 has new features, including better support for both external and internal SD cards, faster backups and restores with a new backup format that de-duplicates data in between backups. Exclusive features for Galaxy Exhibit include:

    wipe menu with rom wipe
    All system wipes under one menu: rom (system/cache/data),cache,dalvik,cache/dalvik,data.

    Stack zip files for installation:
    Flash cm9 & gapps, etc. Select as many zip files for installation as you choose. Flash them all with one command.

    Install system images:
    Drop any recognized system image into a folder on your phone and recovery can flash it. You can even drop the entire contents of an odin tar/md5 file in a folder and cwm recovery will flash it all automatically.

    All images must conform to Odin naming standards:
    adsp.mbn
    amss.mbn
    boot.img
    cache.img.ext4
    preload.img.ext4
    recovery.img
    system.img.ext4
    This is regular interface, not touch.

    Mirror


    To initially install Galaxy Exhibit Custom Recovery you need to:

    1. Copy cwm.galaxy.exhibit.zip to your internal SD storage.

    2. Boot into stock recovery:

    Starting recovery: Press & hold Vol-Up, then press & hold Power. Shortly after the plain white Samsung logo appears, release both buttons.

    Or a different method some find easier:

    * Pull the battery from your phone.
    * Connect phone to your pc via usb.
    * Press & hold Volume-up
    * Insert battery

    Recovery should start after the Galaxy Exhibit/T-Mobile logo.

    3. Press the capacitive menu button (left bottom button) when you see the open white box and droid. Choose 'apply update from sdcard' and select the cwm.galaxy.exhibit.zip file.

    If you already have cwm installed, to update follow the steps above, booting into your current cwm instead of stock recovery.

    Should you need to install ClockworkMod via Odin:

    We have needed a new thread for our phone, thanks for making this!

    You're welcome. Just fyi, I'm no longer going to post in the old dev thread or discussion thread. I also plan to make good use of the <reserved> posts above for Galaxy Exhibit links and information.

    I'm committed to this phone for the long haul, so thanks for joining me here. I hope this thread will be used for any general discussion of our Galaxy Exhibits (concerning development as well). I also hope folks will evangelize and point people here rather than carry on in the older abandoned OP threads.

    CM 10

    Here is a quick port of CM 10 from galaxy w thread all thanks go to them for this start. It appears all the working and not working are the same. Please test it out and let me know of issues. I will continue to update and possibly try and to build it from source when I get a little more time. Post comments in CM 10 thread so this thread isnt clogged up with CM 10 issues. Thanks and enjoy.
