Do you have cwm recovery installed?
If not, an update.zip will do you no good. The stock recovery has a signature verification feature... which means that if your zip isn't signed with the official Samsung keys, it will just abort.
The ONLY way to root the prevail is with ODIN
All current exploits have been patched in 2.3.6 so our only option is to use Samsung's flashing utility (Odin) to install clockwork mod recovery and then fash a rooted ROM (or use Odin to installed a pre-rooted image)
There is NO other option... no Odin... no root... no exceptions
