Do you still have a Galaxy Prevail lying about, completely stock? You can do more with it than just have it lying around, or just using it as stock, as you aren’t utilizing its full potential that way, you know. We understand, rooting devices has never been the most comfortable of tasks for many phones in the past, but lately it has actually gotten a lot less tedious. Older phones, such as the Prevail itself, will quickly lose out in todays world (well, lost already, but still) if kept totally stock. If you’re keen on rooting your device in just one click to open up an entirely new world of custom hacks, mods and apps that require root access, we have a simple one click root tool for you that works on Windows, Mac & Linux and allows you to root your Prevail in a snap. Read on for more details and the complete guide.

- Connect the device to the computer and simply run the .bat file to begin the rooting process.
- On Linux or Mac, run the .sh file from the terminal after connecting the device to the computer.
That should do it – your Samsung Galaxy Prevail should now be rooted. This method should also work on the variant of Prevail on Straight Talk – the Samsung Galaxy Precedent, because the two are essentially the same phones on different carriers, the Prevail being on Boost Mobile.
