    So the other night I had a security update and was tired(didn't think too well through) and decided to let it update on my rooted prevail. Then I got stuck on Boost Mobile Screen and wouldn't go past it so I flashed ODIN and reset it to stock factory settings, and now I am attempting to root it again but it will not root with any method(followed the videos down to the last detail). I tried shabbymod, prevailtoexistence, and such. What it does is, with prevailtoexistence it turns off and starts bootlooping and says "Mount: operation not permitted" then everything it tries to put into phone fails. I've taken my SD card out(unmounted properly) and put it in debug mode as it asked me.

    Odin WILL root your phone, Thanks to Hoark 13 let me see.. here.. where is it... here it is!!! link is for EJ06 baseband ( which is WAAAY better than the new FA19 ( UPDATE that probably Soft-Bricked your phone ). ) Its a direct Download link just click, plus I just tried the link it works.

    So if you just Odin'd the thing you have to know how... But here it is anyway... Download the zip/ extract to 1 folder/ put phone in downloading mode ( Vol. Down + Camera + power ) after that plug in phone using usb/ open Odin folder and run Odin/ select the file's ONLY in that folder ie. .OPS .TAR etc./ put boot in boot and phone in phone and so forth.
    run the START button and wait.

    If the dialog box ( COM PORT ) doesn't show when you plug in phone AFTER Download Mode.... you need your drivers.
    If the same dialog box does not start loading in about 1 min. start from beginning and sheit!!! Have a nice day.

    My phone is successfully rooted thanks to ODIN and Titanium Backup restored everything to as it was before the update. Thank you very much both of you!:D

    Shabbymod 0.9, while great at the time, is pretty old now. And AdmireToPrevail has been superseded by newer roms that are based off it. Your best bet is CTmod, HalfAssRom, or Cyanogenmod 7.

    What Caedas said! Shabbymod is super old now. It was a great rom but it hasn't been updated in a long time. Shabby has since moved on to other projects :) Though shabby will always be a prevail user to me :p

    In any case rooting is super easy nowadays. The easiest way is to just flash using ODIN to a image that's already rooted. There is one for EJ06 and one for FA19. Once you do that I recommend that you update using CWM to CTMOD, HalfAssRom, CM7, etc...

    You can find a list of roms and help here at the newly updated guide.

    Use an ODIN image, very easy and no stress. These are images of phones that have the work done already.

    Once you understand the process you will laugh at how easy it is.

    Have you ever used Teamviewer? You use your computer and someone can look into what you're doing... or if you want they can control your desktop (with your say so) and you can watch what you're doing.

    This device has stayed unrooted for too long. Let me know if you're interested. I certainly am!

    Use Odin it worked for me, and make sure you install the samsung drivers to your computer. Mine is rooted I thought the same thing. Odin plus FA19 rooted is what I used MAKE SURE samsung drivers are installed on computer it is a must ...

    Somebody else was complaining about that link in another thread, but I just tried it and its fine, maybe some hiccups on the download site.

    TECHNICALLY Odin doesn't root your phone.
    One of us devs get the update, and we figure out how to root it. Then we make an Odin image of that and put it out there. All Odin does is indiscriminately flash image files to specific locations on the phone.

    Also, technically, the thread title is completely false. Though the "one click" and script kiddie methods of rooting the phone don't work, there is no problem rooting the phone manually, which counts as a method

    hello, i have found a problem to most devices that wont root, i have had the same problem for about a year or so... i finally went and called about 5 different people accocated with my phone, and found out that you need to call your service provider (eg. straight talk, t mobile, ext) and get to technical support, the reason for this is beause i found out my phone is defective... they said they would send me and free phone and to send back my current one, so i have one on the way, they said they garentee it will be rootable... try this and use whatever root method you like, the number for straight talk is 18774302355
