My guess is it won't work! It is a different version, therefore not compatible with what we use. Unless someone knows different I wouldn't try it, could brick your phone!

What you have is the Proclaim, not the Prevail. On this site, it hasnt really got too much support. You should be able to find root instructions on the XDA forums or androidarea51.com. Good luck ninja

theres also the samsung galaxy precedent that looks almost exactly like the prevail too. Thats a straighttalk phone also and I rooted it and flashed cm7 to it with Clockwork Mod by using the .ops from the precedent and everything else from the prevail since they are very similar phones. As long as you dont make a mistake using odin by using the wrongfiles to flash you can get your phone back to stock and start again. If you flash the wrong files with odin it can brick your phone. All I did was use the .ops for the precedent and followed the book like I was modding a prevail and it all worked the first time.Good luck to ya.
