How to Unroot the Samsung Exhibit 4G

Getting your device rooted is as easy as abc but unrooting the same becomes a cumbersome task sometimes. Such is not the case with our Samsung Exhibit 4G smartphone as a recovery flashable stock ROM is available now allowing users to get back to stock in no time without much exertion. As it unroots the device, it also restores the warranty of your device to help you get free services from your manufacturer, if they’re offering any. So, here’s how you can unroot your Samsung Exhibit 4G smartphone.

    Unfortunately this guide is for the Exhibit II 4G (SGH-T679) and not the original Exhibit 4G (SGH-T759). What a shame, nobody loved this phone.
