Default You guys Freaking rock

I am sending this post from my computer, which is wi-fi teathered to my rooted prevail. Good job!! You have my thanks, and my email address, which you may find useful. I'm too broke to donate right now, but I'm a bad arse when it comes to making SEO happen. hit me back when you guys need some work, I would be more than happy to donate a few hours each week for a while. this was worth it, so lemme know what your workin on and i'll set a few computers to spinning and pinging. oh and if you have windows set to automatically search for updates to software, it will auto install the drivers for some reason :P maybe that will help some of you. just make sure to have an active internet connection when rooting and use win7 (not that win 7 starter either, it won't work).

Did you have to tweak anything to get your computer to connect to tether? I see the AdHoc network but my Win7 laptop (Dell 15R I3) will not connect. Any ideas.

Actually, windows 7 starter works perfectly fine. I haven't registered my copy of windows 7 yet and I've had no problems rooting.

I rooted my Prevail without any problems. Thanks to all. How do I turn it into a wireless hotspot? I don't see the option anywhere.

I had no problem rooting my phone but have tried at least 10 times so far with my wife's Prevail and won't accept. When I run the program it gives me messages that install of busybox, etc. unsuccessful. I'm using the same laptop, etc. Any ideas?

Default Backup before Root / Flash

Do most of you Backup your phone before you attempt to root or flash? I have not been up to now. Not a really big deal because I just got the phone and am new to Android. But...Now that it is rooted and flashed up to .6 I am using the phone for some productive stuff besides jsut a toy. So, I need to backup.

I don't have the patience to learn Titanium although I am sure it is the best. I decided to try MyBackup Pro (root). I tested this today and it worked. Here is what I did:

Ran Launcher Pro Backup
Ran Smart Keyborad Backup
Ran MyBackup and selected ALL Applications and Media
Ran MyBackup and selected ALL Data

Then I did a Factory Reset to Wipe it.

I played around with it in this state just to see what was still there.

I signed into Market and it got my Contacts and Calendar from Google.

I downloaded MyBackup from Market.

It automatically downloaded updates to Maps and Gmail also.

I Restored ALL Applications and Media
I Restored ALL Data

It requested a device reboot after each of these two steps.

I restored the Smart Keyboard Settings
I restored the Launcher Pro Settings

I had to redo the widgits but the app shortcuts were there.

I went into Market and set each app for auto updates, this seems to have disappeard for some reason.

Everything works great, possibly a little snappiier than before because of the wipe. Probably a good idea to do this every so often anyway.

In retrospect there are some things I would do differently:
I would have a copy of MyBackup on the SD so I could install from there instead of the Market.

I should have skipped restoring Contacts and Calendar as those got synced from Google anyway. This caused duplicates that MyBackup alerted me about and deleted. I could have skipped backing them up in the first place.

I did not do a good job of documenting it but I think I picked up a few mb of space also. by doing the wipe and restore.

This makes me feel ready for ShabbyMod .7 and will save a lot of redundant work.

How do you use Titanium Backup? Is it better?

So today I got the message on my phone that the update is downloaded, and to click for install. I am rooted and don't want the update. Can someone tell me where the download file was place (and its name)? I assume I can either move it or delete it to be safe from the update?

Also, If I do not click on install, will it install anyway? Or keep pestering me to install?

---EDIT: Okay, I found the update zip file in the cache directory. So, can I move or delete the file? Is this safe? And if so, will the update messages stop after that?

It should be safe to remove the file. The only way I know to avoid the pestering to update is to put shabbymod 6 on the phone. It will run so much better anyways.

I've been holding off on the Shabbymod until there is a way to backup the original ROM (Just in in case of emergency)

Couldn't rename or delete the update zip file I found in cache, and the more I read about it, didn't seem like it would solve the constant nagging to update anyway. I installed AUTOSTARTS, and disabled the update that way instead. Seems to be working fine so far.

There is not a way to back up your original rom, but shabby has a unroot, which uses an original rom though at the moment he is working on it again, so its not available to download.

Have you tried rebooting and on reboot when the samsung logo flashes you start the one click root operation on your computer? I had to this when I rooted mine.

Did you install the update? >.< If you did you cannot root now until they find another way to do it.

Default noob here. really works.

To let everybody who is hesitant about using this app. that it does work! I had to run it twice for it to work. Used windows XP. I donated for the help and my boost samsung galaxy prevail is rooted. Ok I'm very new to android platform. I would like to get rid of that update that keeps popping up when I reboot. How can I access the files on the phone to do so? What is superuser that was installed on my phone? How do I delete native applications since my phone is rooted? And what can I do with my phone, now that it is rooted?

Thanks for the quick response and the great application.

Google can answer most of your questions.

Autostarts (from Market) will stop the update requests; follow the instructions found in the second post here:

The One Click Root has provided us many benefits. One side benefit for me is the Samsung USB drivers. My main ISP is not working tonight (Cricket, big surprise). So, the only reason I have my laptop online tonight is because of the PDAnet Tether program. Thanks again.

wait wait wait.. you want someone to write up why/what root is for and then email it to you? you cant be bothered to return here and look? i would guess not seeing as there is tons of "whats the point of root" questions with nice answers... and of course its too hard to search on any given search engine on what it does?



here let me save you the hassle

wait wait wait.. you want someone to write up why/what root is for and then email it to you? you cant be bothered to return here and look? i would guess not seeing as there is tons of "whats the point of root" questions with nice answers... and of course its too hard to search on any given search engine on what it does?



here let me save you the hassle

Hilarious! There is no better way to learn what it is than to go ahead and do it. After all, it is just a phone, not your firstborn child.

I'm so glad someone else decided to answer RyanRtard's reply. I mean, I don't know how I would have gone about not only trying to answer his question but to reply back in a very specific manner...was a tad bit awkward. We were all noobs once but for the love of God people, at least just don't lurk on these forums, get what you need and then poof never come back or at least say thanks. Sad thing is that if he's not going to come back to check for a reply how is he going to know about that Google link animation that Shabby posted? lmao.

It's not an app. It's a contact card actually. What they did was create a contact icon that dials your own number.

To access your voicemail dial your own number on your phone. If you want to make a button. Make a contact with your number in it. Then add that shortcut to the Home Screen Pretty simple.

Default Thankz in advance

I made the Bonehead move and updated before I found this root (about 1hr before) and the sad part is I wasn't drunk or half asleep... nope like I said bonehead move... anyway I'm new to most of this stuff but am learning a ton mostly cause of people on this forum (you guys know who you are) so I just would like to say Thankz and will wait for you guys to do what you do (pretty well at that) looking forward to getting a shabbymod.. from what I'm hearing there not to "shabby"

Or you can just call "1" which is the default shortcut to voicemail.

I read some buzz that the update only un-rooted the phone but did not, in truth, prevent the existing OneClick from rooting again. Was that true and did you have to add stuff to make it easier for the post update phones to root? Or do stuff to make it POSSIBLE for the post update phones to root. Or was that just a rumour?

Just Curious. Impressive work Gentlemen, in any case!!
