Surprised Root 2.3.6 without PC?

Ok, so I had a Prevail earlier this year, before it upgraded fron AOS 2.3.5 which was a cakewalk to root. I just bought a new one, and it's on AOS 2.3.6.

I wanna root this one as well, but my pc's monitor crapped out on me the week before buying this. Is there any way to root it via terminal or other methods without the need for a pc? Please, any help would bd appreciated.

No. Odin is the ONLY way. No apks, no terminal, no gingerbreak. Only Odin.

Ok, I got a xp pc working, but Odin freezes up everytime.



What am I doing wrong? I've removed sd card, tried all 5 isb ports, and followed all instructions in the guides. Nothing happens.

Could be just me but it looks like the same file in each category in the Odin pic there. I have the same setup your trying to run and each file in those fields looked different but that could be cause I can't see all of the file paths I used the thing your trying and it's great so I would double check the right files are being used as a simple check. Could just be me though>)
