Under Settings/display, there is a setting for font size. Pick what works best for you.

5%/hour is pretty good. At that rate, the battery will last a full day. A custom rom will never match stock for battery use. We've turbocharged the phone, so gas mileage will suffer.... :) You want to save the battery when you aren't using the phone, put it on airplane mode. You can even turn on Wi-Fi while in airplane mode and the battery will last longer.

For getting a screen capture, go to www.slimroms.net. Do a search there and it should have all the info you need.

The problem is, this is my ONLY device and I cannot keep it 'off' any time :(
I agree w you that we may not get the exact mileage, but just a thought, if i switch over to Slim Bean 4.1.2 will it be useful for better battery

This is also my only device and it's on 24/7. I do put it to sleep at night, but I get a full day from a charge.

Cannot Root Samsung Galaxy Exhibit T679

I am aggrivated beyond all belief. I have a Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G T679 and I literally think it's impossible to root this thing. Every thing that I have tried doesn't work and I'm following the instructions I have read/watched to a tee, including a few different methods. If ANYONE can help me it would greatly be appreciated. I have CWN recovery v6.0.1.2 on it and here is the rest of the info hoping this will help...
Andriod version: 2.3.6
Baseband version: T679UVLG3
Kernel version: [email protected] #3
Build number: GINGERBREAD.UVLG#

If you have custom recovery all you have to do is install a rooted ROM.

As mentioned I do have custom recovery. The cwm.6012.t679.zip located here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=26860509&postcount=4 is a dead link so I got the file from here instead https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=9390077933525139528. As indicated by the instructions I copied t679.uvlg3.odex.01.zip (also tried it first with root-stock.zip) to my internal SD card. When I flash Clockwork it does not appear on my list which I why I made my original post. I will also add I tried adding the file(s) to my external SD card and it/they do not appear in Clockwork.

Try peach its basically stock an the link is stil good. Looks like cwm is still available too in the mirror link so try reflashing.

Get your current rom backed up if you havent yet. Best to remove all passwords then store it somewhere safe.

This happened to me after a bad flash. If you have a Windows XP or Windows 7 machine handy you can fix it by flashing recovery with ODIN. @jfbs' recovery thread has an ODIN version of TWRP that worked for me this way. Just make sure you find the exact name and version of "ODIN multi-downloader tool" mentioned on the wiki -- other versions didn't work at all for me. You will also need to download the "flash to stock via odin" package listed on the wiki but you probably don't need to install it, just extract the partition layout file from inside and use it along with TWRP package (as "boot" image).

-It should be the internal ROM.
As stated above your best bet would be to enter download mode and restore a custom recovery or a full factory restore.
Use the Key combo to enter download mode and flash the phone from a PC using Odin.
If this explanation is gibberish to you than search this forum before you brake your phone even more.

    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.

    cwm.6012.t679.zip

    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.

    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.
