try this

unplug usb cable from phone
unplug battery from phone
remove sd card from phone
wait about 30 seconds
plug batttery back in
pug usb cable into phone and computer
press and hold vol down, camera button, power button
keep holding

if you dont see the yellow downloading screen (on phone) after 30 seconds, you probally havehard ware failure

Did you uninstall the old drivers. Then install the ones in the zip?

the driver you have should work, if not install ones from zip

I included them in zip just so you had everything you need in one package

I sure did. The computer is picking up the phone being hooked up to the USB port because I can hear the confirmation bell, but everytime that I hit start on Odin to push the files it just comes up to connect the phone.

That's what I was afraid of. LOL I've got a new Prevail coming this week, so I guess I'm all set up if something goes wrong next time.

All that comes up when I go into recovery mode is:
1. Reboot system now
2. apply sdcardupdate.zip
3. wipe data/factory reset
4. Wipe cache partition

in yellow at the bottom
E:Path /date/update success
E: update file is backed up:not updated
#Manual Mode#

I will definitely be keeping an eye on this and seeing how things develop around here. I am positive great things will come out of this as in us getting gingerbread up and running along with some other things. I am expecting great things out of your Shabby and I am grateful for what you have given us already.

Things are really progressing due to a lot pretty impressive hard work and smarts. This takes a little bit of the risk out of the dreaded brick scenario. I expect that these tools will also allow more great things to be developed for the Prevail by these talented folks.

Thank You hroark13, shabby, interdph and all you other smart, diligent guys!

Take it from me, if it wasn't for all of these kick a@@ guys working on this phone making it what it is, I would be completely lost right now. I had a complete vibrating brick that I was at my wits end with up until earlier this afternoon and now I'm back in buisness with a complete flashed Prevail running .9 which is running great by the way!!!!!!!!!!! I even found the newest version of the Android market APK which I placed into the rom with no fear!!!!! A million thanks goes out to all of y'all!!!!!!!!

I god a Prevail a few weeks ago, and I rooted it, and ever since I did I've been having problems. SEVERE lag occasionally, even with nothing running, phone freezes, stocl battery says incompatible, and won't even charge sometimes (i'll plug it in for 8 hours when i sleep, next morning will only be like 25% charged).

do you think this will fix it? i dont really care about root anymore, i just want it to work.. i have to pull the battery out several times a day and its really frustrating.

I don't know if you already knew, or if it will be any use at all, but I did want to mention something. I rooted my phone as soon as I got it and did not do a system update in fear it would prevent me from being able to root it. After rooting it and being annoyed by the updated message for several days, I decided to go ahead and do the stinkin' update. Upon updating, nothing was damaged or changed in any bad way, but interestingly enough I lost root. Maybe you could somehow use this OTA update to your advantage when making an unrooted stock image.

I recommend doing the shabbymod shown here, wouldn't hurt.

I will say though, your experience seems completely unlike any I've seen or heard from the prevail. I suspect you may have a hardware issue.

I am trying to make an image that is indistinguishable from a phone that has never been rooted, and never been updated, based on ED13, i want to delete any files that rooting copies to that phone, restore any files it changes or deletes, change all file and folder dates to the the date they are suppose to be, I want this image to be a virgin
I want this image to be able to be Rooted again and that is where I am having a problem

Thes are the changes I made so far

uninstalled efs file explorer
uninstalled advanced task killer
did a factory reset
wipe cach
dump data and system rfs files and edited with the following changes using Magic ISO

data.rfs
propert\persist.service.adb.enable edited to 0
dalvik-cache\system@app@Superuser.apk@classes.dex delete
system\packages.xml edit removed superuser info
system\usagestats\usage-20110716 delete
system\app_iq_archive\COV48Y3W delete
system\throttle\-2061808236 delete
system\dropbox\event_data@1310847641809.txt delete
backup\pending\journal53636.tmp delete

system.rfs
bin\su delete
app\Superuser.apk delete
xbins\ deleted entire folder
When i generate an image with these changes made, the phone seems to work fine, but all the linux commands do not work when you run adb shell even if you just try to run adb shell ls
you get this
$ ls
ls
▀dtoolbox├↨═▒: error 22

And if you try install an apk from the phone the phone reboots

i beleive I am getting this error because I deleted xbins/busybox, but busybox gets installed when you root and is not suppose to be there
i think busybox takes over the functions of /system/bins/toolbox
I think this happens when killingmesoftly is run during the root processs
I need to find a way to make toolbox to be the command interperter

I wish i knew more about Linux


Update: editing the rfs files with Magic ISO corrupts symlinks, have to do it Linux, Thanks Shabby

Do this if you can root again . I don't think your phone will allow it if you updated while rooted . Ya might wanna try it anyways and good luck .

There are a few ways to disable the update notification . I use Autostarts . Once the phone was rooted , I opened Autostarts , tapped the second one down "After Startup" , scrolled down to Google Service Framework" of which there are 4 . Tap on the 3rd one down , it should say com.google.android.gsf.update SystemUpdatesService$Receiver . Tap it and a screen will come up asking what you want to do . Disable it . When SuperUser ask want you want to do , tap ALLOW . You will have no more bothersome update notifications !

Thanks a lot for the tip, this is very helpful information.

I suppose I should have mentioned that I was able to root the phone a second time without any issues so it's all good. I'm now running shabbymod 0.9 loaded and couldn't be happier

If I'm not mistaken , one of the updates will forces you back to the stock version and not let you root again . I Believe this was posted earlier in this thread . Ya might wanna read up on it just in case .

I posted this in another forum under a different nick, but thought I'd try here as well as it seems more active...

I recently got this prevail from craigslist and wanted to root it but I can't get it to work. It looks like the reason it won't root is because it appears that the ota update was installed which seemed to make it unrootable. Funny thing is I see that it has Superuser installed so I guess it was once rooted and then the ota update was applied? I can't su in terminal on phone or through adb, and root apps don't seem to be able to get root.

So I was hoping that this odin thing would do the trick, but I can't get that to work either. If you want to see my postings on the other forum it's at acsyndicate . Basically where it left off with odin was the following:

Code:
Download Start... 
<0> Create File... 
<1> StartThread Detected : 1 
<2> StartThread Detected : 0 
<3> StartThread Detected : 0 
<4> StartThread Detected : 0 
<5> StartThread Detected : 0 
<6> StartThread Detected : 0 
<7> StartThread Detected : 0 
<8> StartThread Detected : 0 
<1> setup connection... 
<1> odin mode.. check plcatform verification. 
<1> VerifyPlatform:V76, P73,R16710


I left it like that for over an hour with no further progress. Any ideas of things to try to get
this phone rooted? I tried the root method on the previously linked forum and I tried
shabbymod (0.9 I think) before I tried odin.

You can root EE14. I updated my phone then rooted it then installed shabbysmod 0.8 then updated to 0.9 with no issues at all. Currently waiting to see if shabby can make a gingerbread rom for us.

Did you get your EE14 from the update that interdpth provided or from the ota upgrade that the phone bothers you about?

I can't be sure, but it looks like the person that had the phone before me did the ota upgrade while the interdpth one was supposed to preserve the ability to root.

If yours was the ota update Topken, I'll certainly give it another shot when I can.

I did the ota update when I got the phone. Did you try running the root program from a fresh boot of the phone? I had to try 2 times to get it to root

I had to use a friends computer to try to odin the phone as I don't use windows (freebsd at the moment). Right now I'm re-partitioning my drive so I can install Windows on it to experiment more with the odin stuff.

The computer I used never had odin on it before or never flashed a phone before. It was windows xp 32 bit and I installed the drivers that were in the hroark13 zip file. I believe I did it correctly. If you look at the image I uploaded on imgur I think you can see if I did it right or not. I put the ops in the ops spot, boot on boot, phone on phone, pda on pda. Of course I have no idea what was done to the phone before I got it.

When it got stuck on VerifyPlatform the square that is red and says reset in the screenshot was just white.

@Topken, I don't remember if I tried to root on a fresh boot. After I get windows going I may try that again and if it errors I'll post back; this won't be for quite awhile though because I'm partioning a 1 tb hard drive and it's taking forever to move around all that data. Maybe I'll try using the linux script on a live cd or something if I can get adb working that way. Or I know freebsd has a linux binary compatability thing or something that I might try.

Have some good things to try once my pc is fully back up and running :-D

If the phone is still functioning, test the USB port on it, put an SD card in it and try to copy to and from your computer

Default Ee14?

I got my phone and rooted, and then removed some of the bloatware a while back. Otherwise it is stock. So, when the update message came up I tried to update, and it would not complete the process because I had removed some of the original files. I got tired of the update nag messages and not being able to do anything about it so I change the build.prop to shabby's. If I use odin, will I then get the update message, and then be again able to update to EE14? And BTW, why is the odin Ed13 instead of EE14? Just curious?

the phone had ED13 an i did not allow it to take an upade before I made the image
Shabby is making an EE14 factory image and I am making an ED13 factory image, just so people have options.


if you flash my images you will be asked to update, i am not sure about shabbys

Default Stock version ed13

I made a Stock version of ED13

I edited the OP with the download link

When you first boot it is in Airplane mode, and Unknown Sources is enabled, you can just change these settings your self, or do a factory reset and cache wipe.


After I flashed this I tested running the KMS script and it was able to be rooted just fine, and I was able to install apk files with no problems

If anybody can think of anything I missed on this, please let me know

change log
uninstalled efs file exploere
uninstalled advanced task killer
did a factory reset
dump data and system rfs files and edited with the following changes

data.rfs
propert/persist.service.adb.enable edited to 0
dalvik-cache/system@app@Superuser.apk@classes.dex delete
system/packages.xml edit removed superuser info
system/usagestats/usage-20110716 delet
system/app_iq_archive/COV48Y3W delete
system/throttle/-2061808236 delete
system/dropbox/event_data@1365671084.txt delete
backup/pending/journal53636.tmp delete

system.rfs
/bin/su delete
/bin fixed folder date
/app/Superuser.apk delete
/app fixed folder date
/xbin deleted entire folder

I don't know why but the above output code won't display correctly here. Put up on pastebin though for easier reading.

It's late so I'll have to get to the odin stuff after much sleep, but thought I'd give those a shot and post the results.

Sounds like your phone may be going to sleep . Try the Stay Awake Gadget and plug your phone in to the wall or USB .


EDIT: I jumped the gun . This will solve the problem with WiFi tethering .

First part is true, it does remove root (but no applications, i did still have superuser on the phone). The second though is false, I was able to re-root without issues. At first I did have trouble but it was due to defective USB ports on my PC (if you hear the usb constantly plug/unplug you might be having the same issue, but I've known about my USB ports being jacked up for a while now). I used my wife's PC and it worked first try. Don't know how much it matters, but when rooting I ran the batch file as soon as I saw the samsung logo while the phone was booting. I recalled having trouble if I waited too long last time I rooted.

I don't know why but the above output code won't display correctly here. Put up on pastebin though for easier reading.

It's late so I'll have to get to the odin stuff after much sleep, but thought I'd give those a shot and post the results.
Before you try shabbymod you need to run interdepths one click root.
I thought that you didnt need to run both but I have since heard that you need to be rooted before you try shabbymod.
