    I rooted my Samsung Galaxy Prevail II with Framaroot-1.9.3.apk, granted SuperSU, then chose Gandalph option.
    After rooting, I used Odin 1.85 to install recovery CWM_Prevail2_Ring_Koumajutsu.
    It would not boot all the way. It would get to the second Samsung logo and flash it on the screen. I waited for an hr. It never booted.
    I tried to install SPH-M840_MH5_Stock, that has bloatware removed. Still fail.
    So I was frantic and started formatting data and cache cuz it said "can't mount data (or cache).
    Then I saw a mounting option. So I mounted everything it would let me.
    That got rid of the "can't mount" errors, but it would show a yeild sign below the first Samsung logo.
    And when I try to restart from recovery, it says no root and does the yeild sign. And the whole time I have been working on it, since I flashed the recovery, it says "can't find /tmp/recovery".
    So. I think for the no root error, formatting it, removed root...

    Blessed be,

    If I could get one of the developers to help me create a stock rom recovery I could help you. I have a new unrooted galaxy prevail 2 but no one to help me create a stock recovery ROM.

    Any of you out there want to help me create this Stock Recovery ROM for the Prevail 2????
