    Welcome to the forum. The current phone on your profile is for the model of phone you have NOT your phone number.

    The Precedent is almost identical to the Prevail to the point where they both run on sprint towers. They pretty much use the same root method however it is implemented differently.

    You will need
    1 A micro USB Cable
    2 KMS.zip File
    3 Latest Samsung drivers (can be located on google easily)

    STEPS FOR ROOTING PRECEDENT 2.2.2
    1 Download and extract the KMS File
    2 Install the Samsung drivers
    3 Enable debug mode Settings/Applications/Development
    4 once in debug mode wait for drivers to install
    5 Power down the Precedent
    6 Eject the SD card
    7 Power up normally
    8 When it displays the model number during the boot sequence run the batch file
    (on vista or 7 right click the batch file and run as administrator)
    9 The Precedent will reboot when completed
    10 Enjoy having a hotspot for $45 a month!!!

    That should get you rooted. Found this info at xda developers. Nickcherski was who I saw post it.

    I used the page linked below to root my phone. Nothing else I found worked for me. I hope this helps. I did get my Samsung drivers from the read me in the KMS file listed by Slag It so thank you Slag for that! but the KMS file didn't give me the superuser app I needed :-(

    For those of you that are having issues rooting your phone with the above instructions since megauploads is no longer a working sharesite......here is a 100%, fast, easy rooting method that even a monkey can do ;-)
    Hi All. It took me about a week to get all of the correct files in order so that I could easily root my Samsung Galaxy Precedent. It was such a pain in the backside that I felt the need to share how to root the phone the easy way in under 5 minutes. I just used this technique on both my phone and my wifes phone as of 5/13/2012.
    Be sure to remove your sd card before you root the phone otherwise the rooting process will delete some of your apps and other info. After you root your phone you may notice that your downloaded apps and info from the sd card is missing....this is just because you need to remount your sd card by going to (using your touchscreen) home/settings/sd card and phone storage/mount sd card.
    I have uploaded the files to http://www.fileswap.com/dl/OW2...
    After you have downloaded the zipped file just open the "ReadMe" and follow my "revised" instructions.
    I hope that this helps you to RELEASE THE POWER of your Galaxy Precedent ;-)
