    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

    That happened to my brothers prevail just shortly before the USB port completely fried out and it wouldn't even charge anymore. I'm willing to bet you have a faulty/broken USB port. Call Samsung and send it in for warranty repair.

    Hey devoldog,

    you really must be desperate to make a paper weight out of your Prevail ( since you don't believe any of us here )..........

    I posted a possible solution on how you can fix your USB problem in a previous thread of yours..... And if this computer is really that badly screwed up that you can't get your Prevail to connect, heck, go to a neighbor or a friend and use their comp.......... just install the drivers, root the phone and your out there again...... Takes less then 15 minutes to do that !!

    And if there is NOOOOO Windows computer around your for like 1000 miles, contact these people, they will root your Prevail for you !! Samsung Phones - Samsung Galaxy Prevail - MobileTechVideos.COM
