    try this

    unplug usb cable from phone
    unplug battery from phone
    remove sd card from phone
    wait about 30 seconds
    plug batttery back in
    pug usb cable into phone and computer
    press and hold vol down, camera button, power button
    keep holding

    if you dont see the yellow downloading screen (on phone) after 30 seconds, you probally havehard ware failure

    Did you uninstall the old drivers. Then install the ones in the zip?

    the driver you have should work, if not install ones from zip

    I included them in zip just so you had everything you need in one package

    I sure did. The computer is picking up the phone being hooked up to the USB port because I can hear the confirmation bell, but everytime that I hit start on Odin to push the files it just comes up to connect the phone.

    That's what I was afraid of. LOL I've got a new Prevail coming this week, so I guess I'm all set up if something goes wrong next time.

    All that comes up when I go into recovery mode is:
    1. Reboot system now
    2. apply sdcardupdate.zip
    3. wipe data/factory reset
    4. Wipe cache partition

    in yellow at the bottom
    E:path /date/update success
    E: update file is backed up:not updated
    #Manual Mode#

    I will definitely be keeping an eye on this and seeing how things develop around here. I am positive great things will come out of this as in us getting gingerbread up and running along with some other things. I am expecting great things out of your Shabby and I am grateful for what you have given us already.

    Things are really progressing due to a lot pretty impressive hard work and smarts. This takes a little bit of the risk out of the dreaded brick scenario. I expect that these tools will also allow more great things to be developed for the Prevail by these talented folks.

    Thank You hroark13, shabby, interdph and all you other smart, diligent guys!

    Take it from me, if it wasn't for all of these kick a@@ guys working on this phone making it what it is, I would be completely lost right now. I had a complete vibrating brick that I was at my wits end with up until earlier this afternoon and now I'm back in buisness with a complete flashed Prevail running .9 which is running great by the way!!!!!!!!!!! I even found the newest version of the Android market APK which I placed into the rom with no fear!!!!! A million thanks goes out to all of y'all!!!!!!!!

    I god a Prevail a few weeks ago, and I rooted it, and ever since I did I've been having problems. SEVERE lag occasionally, even with nothing running, phone freezes, stocl battery says incompatible, and won't even charge sometimes (i'll plug it in for 8 hours when i sleep, next morning will only be like 25% charged).

    do you think this will fix it? i dont really care about root anymore, i just want it to work.. i have to pull the battery out several times a day and its really frustrating.

    First, THANKS so much for contribution. What you've provided here is so valuable to the community.

    I don't know if you already knew, or if it will be any use at all, but I did want to mention something. I rooted my phone as soon as I got it and did not do a system update in fear it would prevent me from being able to root it. After rooting it and being annoyed by the updated message for several days, I decided to go ahead and do the stinkin' update. Upon updating, nothing was damaged or changed in any bad way, but interestingly enough I lost root. Maybe you could somehow use this OTA update to your advantage when making an unrooted stock image.

    I recommend doing the shabbymod shown here, wouldn't hurt.

    I will say though, your experience seems completely unlike any I've seen or heard from the prevail. I suspect you may have a hardware issue.
