Samsung Exhibit 4G is an Android phone for people who wish to enjoy 4G speed but can not pay much. I don’t like its design but it is good if you wish to use 4G. In this tutorial we will tell you how to root this android phone in an easy way. After rooting it, you can use various applications which require root access like Juice Defender or Titanium Backup. You can remove bloatware and free up some space on your phone.
- Before you install any ROM on your device, it is always advisable to take a back up of your tablet’s data. Backing up your contacts is easy and you can back up all your contacts to your tablet’s SD Card.
- To back up your applications, I recommend you to use ASTRO File Manager which also allows cloud storage.
- Make sure you have enough battery on your device to support the installation. If the device powers off due to lack of battery power, it may brick the device.
- Enable USB Debugging. To do this, go to Settings>Applications>Development and ensure that USB Debugging is checked.
