Have to agree with new optimus, though i am a new member and new to rooting and pretty much everthing technical about androids and phones in general, i have found most information to be very helpful, however, its been quite confusing. I've already said on a previous post of mine that i went through like three different rooting files for my prevail before finally finding the one that worked. In my foruming experience i always thought that you check the very first post for what your looking for and then check the last post to make sure it matches up and is up to date.

you can take my rants and lazy punctuation as a newbie thing but as simple as i can say it is, finding the updated stuff that is currently in operation is difficult and confusing, in my opinion

Just got off the phone with WirelessRefill.com.
They said to use the "RTR Instant TopUp" instead of the Reboost on their website for quicker transfer of money to your account. Otherwise you have to call their 1800 number afterwards and have them transfer the money.

It appears that this is the next best option unless someone else says so...

Red laser is only unavailable in the market. The prevails fixed focus camera is the reason. It can be downloaded for an outside source and installed.

Thanks! Did a Google search for redlaser apk, found a link for direct download, moved to SD card, and then used ASTRO File Manager to install!

Thanks for the heads up!

I am new to this forum and have learn a lot from it thus far. Although I found it hard to keep track of the multi-directional threads and what is/was in development, what is/was tested successfully and what is/was in operation.

I want to do my part and leverage my 18+ years experience in the IT industry and provide a detailed document(s). Before I do this is there interest and a way to add grouping information to threads? I would like to suggest breaking out the information leveraging a modified SDLC (System-Development Life Cycle) model/process. HARDWARE, OS, ROMs, - DEVELOPMENT and TESTING, OPERATIONAL. In addition TIPs, APPLICATIONS and OTHER information. The idea and model, like Kevincott's post, is to eliminate as much confusion and repetitiveness with single source structured information based on activity. This maybe hard to do a on a post but not sure and asking for your input. I am willing to develop the document(s) with the information as related to HARDWARE, OS, ROMs, DEVELOPEMET and TESTING, OPERATIONAL. TIPS (tested and validated) would be included in the OPERATIONAL section. Please let me know your thoughts. If there is interest I will provide and outline for review. Thanks and good to be part of the forum.
The point of this thread is to consolidate info that is spread out while being easy to read. Much of the info here is not my own and credit has been given to authors as I could find.

Feel free to use anything here for your own thread, sharing knowledge is the reason for forums. Looking forward to seeing your thread.

Try these codes out: 01578 or 01729

As stated earlier, the coupon codes change every month but contains the same 3% discount. You will have to constantly update this thread for the monthly coupon code. Let me know if these work for January 2012.

As for someone saying that you have to call a 1800 number to load your balance onto your account, I have yet to do so since they should be immediately calling you after placing your order for confirmation. Shortly after, you should have the purchased balance on your account.

If all else fails, there's always the option of getting a Target Redcard and using its 5% discount on anything purchased.

Just did my refill at wirelessrefill.com and went without a hitch.
Did have to do a phone confirmation sorta deal being it was 1st order.
She started to send me thru a bunch of hoops with an email, and having to
send a copy of ID or some such but then she asked me if I was ordering
from callingcardmart previously I told her yes and she seemed to drop the
whole email thing. Got my approved confirmation email shortly after and
one from Boost as well.

The 015878 code surprisingly worked, tried 01729 and it came up expired
1/31/11. Figured the higher number would be more current but apparently
not.

They also have a renewal reminder deal and if you approve the renewal
I think you get like another 5% off.

Ok I am a brand new user, I have been reading that you need to root your phone for some apps to work but considering I'm new at this how necessary is it?

Do you want to get rid of things like Hookt and Layer, or even thinkfree office?

All that preinstalled stuff that takes up space and does nothing for 99% of of users.
You need to be rooted to remove any of that.

If you use wireless tether you need to be rooted.

There are many more reasons to root but those are the main ones people mention here.

I would like to be able to uninstall those apps, as you said they aren't ones I'll use so they are just wasted space. Is it fairly simple or do I have to worry about messing up my phone?

rooting is very simple. removing apps is also simple but you need to follow the guides on which items can be safely removed.

You do NOT want to remove the wrong thing.

Check the subforum all things root for a sticky thread that has all the info you will need.

Default Acronyms and abbreviations

Hi, everyone. May I ask a favor? Since this is the beginners guide, would you please spell out a term before using an acronym or an abbreviation. For example, "Silly Rabbit (SR)". I am truly a beginner and sometimes it's hard to understand what you are saying.

Spelling out certain abbreviations like CDMA and .apk are not going to help users if you do not have a working knowledge of wireless networks and filesystems.

If you have a working knowledge, spelling out would be useless so I am putting out the Prevail is is CDMA (not UMTS, GSM, IDEN, etc...) without being verbose.

I think code division multiple access (CDMA) confuses new users as they dont know code division multiple access from Universal Mobile Telecommunications System and what the difference means.

While it pains me to say it, shabbymod 0.9 is nine months old now, its for 2.2, and it's not actively updated. Maybe it's time to let it go, it had a good run.

I only mention this because someone recently tried installing it on 2.3.

Kevincott & Saorsa,
Did a quick Google and it would seem that aside from some telecom companies and terms that there isn't any kind of wiki out there. I like the idea of creating a wiki for at least the Android phones so that information could be consolidated and updated.

Myself I don't mind searching forums for info and I certainly don't want to take away from them either but I have to admit that sometimes the endless searching is a bit frustrating.

Opinions anyone?

A wiki would be a great idea, could solve alot of repeat questions and posts.


Would make sense to contain a wiki in a forum like this. Much of the info is already written somewhere and could be a cut & paste situation.

The one problem I see is that things vary by phone. Terms are normally universal while execution and files vary. Moderators have already posted general "how to's" on topics like rooting pushing a user towards make/model forums for more specific info.

In much the same way the wiki would be structured the same. Some common threads for common things and specific thread that would be unique for the handset in question. Just like we typically see posts that point to other posts or threads for how too's. Problem is that from experience I have seen some of these threads get incredibly long. My line of thinking is that the wiki be updated to show current information,specs, etc and save the forum threads for more of a support system. I know that my last handset I routinely had to deal with a handset post forum that was almost 500 posts long.

If I had enough involvement from the people that contribute to these forums and provide us with the info to educate people like me then I would be willing to host the wiki site.

Hehe.

Common problem, peeps don't read all thread posts and sometimes ask questions that have already been answered. I have done the same thing and been admonished myself.

Forum members will normally courteously nudge you to use the **search** function.



I still agree that a wiki is a great idea, maybe send PM to some moderators for more info?

this may be in wrong place but i couldnt find right place to post, please help,i just ordered a samsung prevail, and i have some experience rooting and flashing roms, my question is this what order do i use these different things?

1.scripts v6, 3g turbo, and a kickass kernelizer
2. one click root
3. cwm for prevail
4. honey bread rom


i'm not being simple just dont want to overlook something and make a mistake, also i saw something about partitioning my sd to extend internal memory how can i see if my rom supports it and how do i do it? and where does it fit in on list of steps? thanks in advance

Hi goast

1. Start with CWM, Hroark13 has a informative thread:
ClockWorkMod v5.0.2.7 (file system/recovery utility) update 01/12/12 FIXED

2. Most of the wonderful developers here have pre-rooted images of any ROM you want ready to go.

Don't bother with one click, just flash a rooted stock image from the odin thread. This gives you cwm as well. The scripts might be included with your rom of choice, check its thread for more info
