    Default Rooting the Samsung Exhibit II 4G?

    I'm new to the whole Android world (came from iOS), and I need to know how to root my new phone. I already got the Android SDK, but I really don't know what else to do.

    UPDATE: Well that was easy! I used SuperOneClick, worked like a charm! Sweet sauce. Now uh, what custom ROMs can I install?

    Probably not the right forum section to post this. But unless there are any rules about posting link to another forum: Anyone root the Samsung Exhibit II 4g T679 - Android Forums

    You first have to install your phone USB drivers, then turn on USB Debugging before you plug the phone to your computer, setting is located at: Settings -> Application -> Development.

    It doesn't seem there are much development interests in this phone.

    I did those already, and I've successfully rooted the phone.

    I'm a noob, been trying to read all the info and research as much as I can about rooting so that I can get rid of the bloatware on my T-Mobile Samsung Exhibit II 4G phone.

    I understand I must download and install the USB drivers as the very first step in the process. Well, I cannot find the drivers anywhere. They are not on the Samsung Support page. And when I do a Google search for Samsung USB drivers nothing viable turn up.

    Where did you locate the USB drivers to download before you rooted your phone?

    Thanks!

    I found somewhere that using the Galaxy S's drivers can work. I used THIS, it works on both 32 and 64-bit Windows.
