    Wow they still went back to update the original exhibit phone? Please don't forget the Exhibit II... Currently what I carry.

      Actually, this is for the Exhibit II. The typo in the changelog threw me off. All fixed now.

    uhmmm isnt this for the exhibit 2 at least thats what tmo news is saying they even have screenshots

    the sensation says its update is 2.3.4 but the Exhibit is 2.3.6 but both look totally different in sliding options, the main wall look and all that. Is it possible to get my exhibit II to look like the sensation interface?

    So did any of this fix the SMS failed issue, or the outgoing voice problem, or the lack of RAM in the device due to TouchWiz being a hog? The Exhibit II is a brutal phone once rooted and the bloat is removed, but otherwise they really missed the boat by not going to 512MB or RAM.

    Awwww.  I was hoping I could improve my wife's Exhibit, not Exhibit II.  If there were only a way to update it too.

  • Darshak

    Is anyone gets their EXHIBIT updated?

    If yes, then how can I get update on my UNLOCKED and rooted exhibit?

  • Aristroker

    Hopefully it will improve all the device known issues from daily freezing, sms failures, random turnoffs, powercycling & more
