    Interesting. Someone more qualified can answer this, but I think there is some way to do it.

    You should try the one click root method. It worked for me and now I am looking at Settings ---> About phone ---> Baseband xEE14 and I am good; rooted with ShabbyMod 0.9 beta as the build number.

    I just can't tell you HOW to do this. I am sure it has something to do with ClockWorkMod, tho. You might have a newer phone where you have to "downgrade" in order to "upgrade."

    Do this:
    1. Try one click root (again).
    If not
    2. Use this Windows prog called Odin to pound in an old image to your phone; before the revision.

    hroark13's Galaxy Prevail one came highly recommended. I am a total noob here but this is possible.

    Bump.

    busybox executes some linux commands and apps

    i dont know what cydia is

    if you have the super user icon in you apps list you should be rooted
