If you are still on Froyo, you need to install the Gingerbread bootloader FIRST!
If you are currently running a Gingerbread ROM(AreaROM 2.0+) you DO NOT need this.
This is an Odin
.Download and unzip.
.Put your phone in Downloading mode. (Phone off- Press and hold Volume DOWN+Camera+Power until Downloading.. appears on screen)
. Connect your phone to your PC.
. Launch the Odin exe found in the zip file.
. Make sure phone is connected with Odin.
. Click Ops and select the Ops file, click Boot and select the Boot file, same with Phone and PDA (there are no CSC or EFS files). (DO NOT change any options in Odin!!)

hroark's Unofficial CyanogenMod 7 has been ported to the Precedent. This would not have been possible so soon without hroark
. Thanks for your Prevail port and source, they were
invaluable! I appreciate all of your work in getting CM7 ported to Prevail. Many thanks to hroark
This is a 1-1 port of the Prevail version. As such, it still says Boost Mobile on the lock screen and in the status bar dropdown. Even though it says Boost IT IS STRAIGHT TALK
! Also, look at CyanogenMod 7 Unofficial Beta 5 02/20/12
. I have included hroark's updates, but some functions are still not 100%. I wanted to go ahead and push this out because, like I said in my TalkStraight release, there just isn't enough available for this phone and I intend to change it. I will continue to work on this and release updates as regularly as possible, but I do have a day job and I am doing this alone.
* ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR DEVICE BEFORE YOU FLASH *
Boot into Clockwork Recovery by holding Volume Up+Camera+Power, select Backup/Restore, then backup. Keep the backup folder safe! If something happens, boot back to recovery and Backup/Restore and select restore.
This is a ClockWorkMod install!
1. Boot phone to recovery (hold up vol+camera+power until you see ANDROID_)
2. Select "Install zip from SD card"
3. Select the .zip file
5. Reboot into CyanogenMod7!
This ROM did NOT wipe my data on install, but you should take precautions to insure your data is backed up and safe. I AM NOT responsible for any damage that may be caused to your device, nor any data costs incurred by using this ROM. No warranty of the functions of this ROM are expressed or implied. Download and Flash at your own risk. Whenever flashing data to a phone there is ALWAYS something that can go wrong. Be smart!
