Use your index finger for the E string, and middle finger for the A string, that way you dont have to skip strings as both your fingers are already there above the string.

Start slow, and build up every 10bpm or less.

Yeah if you practice it like i said, start slow on a metronome and gradually build up getting faster, then your fingers can reach most speeds that myung or any other bassist does.

I prefer switching fingers for every note. Then again playing 4 fingers is weird.
---77--77--77-
-00--00--00---
-imrpimrpimrp
(where i=index m=middle r=ring and p=pinky)
It seems to me that my method is a bit harder than the one finger per string technique, especially for stuff where you play one note on each string and swith the the other string, like this for ex:

-7-7-7-7
--------
5-5-5-5-
--------

But when you get to trickier patterns I think always switching fingers turns into an advantage:

-57-57-57-57
------------
5--5--5--5--
------------
imrpimrpimrp


Here I just need to keep moving through the imrp pattern so I don't have to figuring out if I should do i-m-r-i-m-r or some other strange pattern. I just play the way I usually do, I don't have to think about it.
Of course it's really up to the individual to choose which is better, I just find that mine is worse at some particular patterns but more versatile for strange or changing patterns.

or you could do the circle of 5ths(4ths way down). or another drill i like to do depends on how many strings u got. i can do it on a five string with eas. it looks like -17-16-17-15-17-14-17-13-17-12-17-17--17--------------------------------------------------
------------------------17--16--15---------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------

etc

stop picking...
just sit infront of the t.v. and alternate fingers at a moderately fast speed.
you might not notice it but this will build speed and endurance at the same time

before you start playing try stretching 1-5 that way 1-4 should be easy,
I can almost accurately do a pull off from 6 to 1 after warming up with this technique for 3 years, also extensive practice will slightly grow your fingers
