    by Samsung Galaxy Prevail™ on Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 4:01pm

    The Samsung Galaxy Prevail owners may also want to keep their smartphones up-to-date. So we thought of giving you a tutorial of how to upgrade Samsung Galaxy Prevail to Android 2.3.4.
    But prior to telling you how to install Android 2.3.4 on Samsung Galaxy Prevail, let’s see what do you want in order to be able to perform the installation. You will have to download 2.3.4 Samsung Galaxy Prevail port. You will also have to root your Samsung Galaxy Prevail to prepare it for Android 2.3.4 upgrade. Discover how to root Samsung Galaxy Prevail and install Android 2.3.4 from here.
    Here are the download links of the files you want to updatre Samsung Galaxy Prevail to Android 2.3.4
    Just before beginning to upgrade your Samsung Galaxy Prevail to Android 2.3.4 don’t forget to backup your information, as contacts, text messages and the apps installed from Android Marketplace Location who may be lost when the installation finishes.
    Now let’s see how to update Samsung Galaxy Prevail to Android 2.3.4 :

    1. Install the ROM Manager on your Samsung Galaxy Prevail. Get it from Android Marketplace Location, then install the clockwork mod recovery.

    2. Connect your Samsung Galaxy Prevail to your PC employing the USB information cable. Copy the “hc_NS_test-8.1.zip” file you downloaded to the SD memory card.

    3. Restart your device in the recovery mode using ROM Manager. As soon as in Recovery Mode, go to ROM Manager and select backup / restore to back-up your information.

    4. From the Recovery Menu do a total data erase (including Delvik Cache). When completed, go back to Recovery Principal Menu and choose Flash ROM from SD Card. Navigate the location you copied the ”hc_NS_test-8.1.zip” file and follow the directions for installing Android 2.3.4 on your Samsung Galaxy Prevail. As soon as the installation is over, just reboot your Samsung Galaxy Prevail device and here you go, you’ve just upgraded it to the new Android 2.3.4

    Then what is the reasoning for the OP to post this on here if it doesn't work... Thanks OP but I think the introduction kinda killed it if the upgrade is proven to not work. P.S I tested and no it does not work.

    im just curious on hwo you were going to do it? there is no recovery mode for you to flash the zip in...

    Actually, the replies on the FB post were how I found out myself it didn't work. I ran into the same post a couple weeks ago. :p
    As for "testing" it with no recovery...I suppose someone really daring *could* try and trick Odin into flashing it. Sure won't be me though lol.

    It is stickied for anyone to see.

    Not quite, its just too bad we wont get true community support. I mean yes we have shabby and hoark and a few others, but we dont have the CM team working on it or other big devs because it isn't a mainstream phone. We would probably have GB if we had more people working on it, especially since their team has tons of experience with lots of different phones.

    It will happen, we are working on it, it is not easy, and alot of things need to be fixed, a beta will be released soon for testing, but I am not sure where i will release it

    We have spent alot of time on this, and lately i have been distracted by certain people

    DarkStarr the below message is not directed at you
    please do not ask me for etas, I block PMs, do not do a freind request so that you can send me PMs asking me when this will be done.
    I was recently very close to dropping the project all together for reasons you may be aware of.

    i wish hroark would have posted his video at least the url making it clickable.

    My Movie 3 - YouTube

    make sure to click thanks on hroark and if your generous donate, as this is his brainchild. he worked on it for 3 weeks before coming to everyone else and gathered up a bunch of people from here and other people that have worked on cm before. take my word on it that this is damn near perfect.
