Yeah. Take it slow. Read all you can. If you are on Froyo try out Shabby .9 It is the best for Froyo.

Do Not use ROM manager. I bought it when I first got my phone. Uninstall it. You can not use it with the Prevail for anything worth keeping. It will brick your phone.

Install CWM recovery using Odin to back up your stuff. Use the TB app to backup your apps. Learn to use the Kouma Odin Packer to backup your phone. Backup your SD card to a PC.


Then consider upgrading to GB using Odin. Try CTMOD and CM7.

Explore using sd-ext to extend your memory using either A2SD or Link2SD.

Also for CM7, S2E or the Hroark solution.

Take your time, but get your backup situation figured out.

Uninstall ROM manager now!

Have fun!

Edit: oops sorry, I see you are already on GB, good. Disregard the Froyo stuff.

But still backup and uninstall ROM manager.
