    I too am a newbie. I have just acquired a Boostmobile Galaxy Prevail (1st gen in black SPH-M820), have read a lot about rooting but it seems complicated where others call it easy. I have a 2011 MacBook Pro but I can borrow my gf's Windows laptop if needed. Please assist or advise me the easiest way to root this for myself. There are local shops that charge $35-$45 to do the root, but I'd like to have the experience of doing it myself and saving the money for other things. Thanks! ~Brett

    I brought root/SU to my Prevail via Odin and a Windows PC. Go to Settings/Development on your phone, and enable debugging; also in Settings/Apps, enable installation of apps by third-party developers*. Connect your phone to the PC via USB; enable Odin on the PC. Just make sure that the two (sometimes three) .tar files provided by Odin are placed into the slots indicated within Odin's GUI; hit enter, and Odin will work its voodoo; root created! *NOTE: Before doing that, make sure CLOCKWORKMOD, Busybox, and Superuser are installed on your phone by way of the Google Play Store; then, 'Google' Odin for Windows PCs, and download that to your PC, OS XP to 8.1 (at the time, I was running XP - so I don't know how Odin'll behave in newer OSs). This should get you up and running, if you caught the asterisk in this post :D. I'm now running hroark's CM7 MOD with with the external SD kernel; my internal memory is attached to a partition in my 32 gB SD Card; my internal app memory usage currently is 311 mB; to keep things running smoothly, without overclocking the CPU (not recommended - Samsung batteries for the Prevail get really hot when the CPU remains at 800 mHz; max clock for this little guy is 964 mHz, and from my experience - go to a dual-core processor, like Snapdragon - this guy will become a toasted brick otherwise)... I use the Userspace governor, and I installed D. Mehrmann's SD Booster, and set the cache at 2048 - even though my SD card is rated class 10, I'm making this SD work hard. The phone is loaded with apps - counting the internal apps, I'm up to 91 or so, plus mp3s galore. The phone runs smoothly - the only thing this phone can't do is tether. To do that, I just go back to one of my other ROMS in Nandroid backup - like CT-MOD 3.80, or ICS-Jellybean-based CM9 3.5.5 Kang (also hroark's) - nice, but no camera/video drivers. Hope this long-winded post helps others find root for their Boost Mobile, lowly 3G Samsung Galaxy Prevail.
