  GUIDE: ROOT SAMSUNG GALAXY EXHIBIT SGH-T599

Before you begin with the instructions below, make sure your android device is adequately charged — at least 50% battery of the device.

  STEP 0: CHECK DEVICE MODEL NO.

To make sure your device is eligible with this, you must first confirm its model no. in ‘About device’ option under Settings. Another way to confirm model no. is by looking for it on the packaging box of your device. It must be SGH-T599!

Please know that this page is exclusively meant for Samsung Galaxy Exhibit. Do not use the procedures discussed here on any other device of Samsung or any other company. You have been warned!

  STEP 1: BACKUP YOUR DEVICE

Back up important data and stuff before you start playing around here as there are chances you might lose your apps and app-data (app settings, game progress, etc.), and in rare case, files on the internal memory, too.

For help on Backup and Restore, check out our exclusive page on that linked right below.

  STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

  Example video: If you haven’t used Odin before to flash a file on your phone before, then we suggest you first watch a video of that to get familiar with the process. The video demonstrates flashing of a Recovery on Galaxy S3, but since the procedure is same, the video will helpClick here to watch the video

Important Note: Backup important files stored on internal SD card of your device, so that in case a situation arises requiring you to do a factory reset after flashing with Odin, which might delete internal sd card too, your files will remain safe on PC.

  1. Extract/Unzip the Odin file, Odin_v3.09.zip on your computer (using 7-zip free software, preferably)You’ll get the following files:
    • Odin3 v3.09.exe
    • Odin3.ini
  2. Extract the .tar.md5 file from the T599-Pre-rooted.zip into the same folder where the Odin was extracted.
  3. Disconnect the Galaxy Exhibit from PC if it is connected.
  4. Double-click the Odin3 v3.09.exe file to open Odin.
  5. Boot your Samsung Galaxy Exhibit into Download Mode:
    • Power off your phone first and wait for 6-7 seconds after display is off
    • Press and hold these 3 buttons together until you see Warning! screen: Volume Down + Power + Home
    • Press Volume Up now to continue to Download Mode
  6. Connect your Galaxy Exhibit to PC. Odin window will show an Added!! message in bottom left box. Odin’s screen would look like this:
    Odin 3.09 - Samsung-Galaxy-Odin-Device-Added-Screenshot
    If you don’t get the Added! message, here are some troubleshooting tips:

    • Make sure you have installed driver for Galaxy Exhibit as said above.
    • If you have already installed driver, then uninstall them and re-install back.
    • Connect using a different USB port on your PC.
    • Try a different USB cable. The original cable that came with your phone should work best, if not, try any other cable that’s new and of good quality.
    • Reboot phone and PC and then try again.
  7. Load the firmware file (extracted in Step 1) into Odin as instructed below:
    • Click on the AP button on Odin and select the .tar.md5 file. Your Odin window should look like the screenshot below:
      odin-3.09
  8. Now in the Option section of Odin, make sure that Re-Partition box is unchecked. (Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time boxes remain checked, while all other boxes remain unchecked.)
  9. Double check the above two steps. (Step 7 and Step 8)
  10. Click the Start button to begin flashing, and wait until you see a PASS! message in Odin’s top left box.
  11. When you get PASS! message, your device will restart automatically. You can then disconnect your phone from PC.
    • If you see FAIL message instead of the PASS in Odin’s top left box, that’s a problem. Try this now: disconnect your Galaxy Exhibit from PC, close Odin, remove phone’s battery and put it back inside in 3-4 seconds, open Odin and then repeat from Step 3 of this guide again.

    • Also, If device is Stuck at setup connection or on any other process, then too, try this: disconnect your Galaxy Exhibit from PC, close Odin, remove phone’s battery and put it back inside in 3-4 seconds, open Odin and then repeat from Step 3 of this guide again.

  12. Similarly, flash the t599_wipe.tar.md5 file obtained from the t599_wipe.zip in the AP box of Odin. (This is just an empty cache file which is used to break the bootlops if you can’t get to recovery)

 That’s all, On booting your phone will be rooted and have Busybox installed. If you need help regarding this, feel free to ask us in comments below.

      It’s okay if you get the “reset” flag. It still gets the job done 🙂

    My Avast antivirus says the download site http://settlecruise.org/Dovo?q=T599-Pre-rooted.zip has a virus. This was on 3/5/2015. Are there any other download sites? This seems to happen a lot with these download sites.
