    I am going nuts trying to figure this out and will start by saying if someone gets me the answer and it works I will send over all the information for a separate Prevail donor phone for free. I have about 10+ prevails in my shop that I want to use as donors.

    Here is what I have so far, I have the ESN / IMEID, HA / AAA keys, NV items (in binary files as well as split files ex 465 and 465_1)

    Lets say I am working on getting the epic 4g on boost. How do I write the NV items to write to the new phone since they are in binary files???

    As I mentioned above I will send over all the secrect keys and NV items and then strip the phone for parts if someone can help me.

    Its not as if I was holding out hope... I've helped a bunch of guys here about this flashing issue... many promised few delivered. Some promised paypal some devices. Only one that actually did as he said was Johnny.

    Lolol I don't really care if I have 4G on Prevail or not. I just want a working phone that supports Micro SD card, and is touch screen.

    Well you did mention 4g on your post so... Anyway. As far as phones go the Prevail is hard to beat. It is a good phone on a good network that has a great price scheme.

    If you're not in a hurry you can find the Prevail on sale. A cursory search on the forum will show the different prices and times they were available... Sometimes they even give them away for free with a new activation and the first month's bill.

    I'm having the same problem. I have a Prevail that I want to use as a donor to get a Galaxy Epic 4G on Boost. Can someone provide step-by-step instructions? I've googled this topic to death and have found some resourceful info on XDA but still can't figure this out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    The prevail isn't that great...You should stay away from it if you can. Though from experience it is practically indestructible. If you do buy one, at least try ebay first. I got one a used one month's ago for 48$ and some odd cents and in really good shape.
