@-@ I'm lost already... (Samsung Galaxy Prevail Rooting)

    Okay I somewhat recently (within the last year) bought a Samsung Galaxy Prevail from Boost Mobile. Since the first time I've heard about rooting an Android phone I've been tempted to do it to mainly get rid of some of the problems I have with it standard. To be honest I'm very stupid sometimes when it comes to a lot of information thrown at me at once...

    Anyway, I'd like to root my phone. I've seen multiple guides here some have links to things that no longer exist or say they are no longer being updated and when I do read them I get terribly confused on what I'm actually supposed to download. There are a few main things I want to do after it is rooted. I want all apps to be on the card instead of System Memory, I want to be able to share my 3g coverage via wi-fi, and I want to remove most of the things I never use that come standard and won't let you uninstall (Hookt, Layer, and a few others).

    I'd really appreciate it if someone took the time to take it slow with me and help me root it. Also I've looked at the newbie and dummies guide on here and got lost in those as well. Also this is my first day ever on this forum so I don't expect a fast reply but I would very much appreciate it if someone took the time to help someone so utterly overwhelmed as me.

    Best suggestion : Download the files needed like drivers, baseband and ROM than install the Samsung drivers, Use Odin ( incl. in FE16_ROOT_CWM5.zip ) to root the Prevail..... Doing all that takes like all together 20 minutes.........

    1. Drivers :
    32-bit Windows : http://db.tt/eGN4acLK
    64-bit Windows : http://db.tt/IlIkQ4BV

    2. Baseband FE16_ROOT_CWM5.zip :

    3. ROM CTMod3.75

    4. Rooting Guide : FOLLOW EXACTLY !!!

    PS: DON'T UNZIP THE "CTmod3.75.zip" FILE !!! This file will be installed as is from SD-CARD, after you Odin the FE16 base band !!!

    If you have any specific questions, just ask and one of the guys here will help yah..... ;)

    Odin is included in the FF16 download..... This is the file you need to unzip to a folder of your choice.....

    DON'T unzip the CTMod3.75 file, just copy it to your SD_Card as the guide says....
