    AreaRom 2.3 is for the precedent not the q. You can brick your phone by trying to install roms that aren't for your phone

    Thank you very much for the information, I now have service with straight talk with them messing my phone up. They managed to some how erase my system update so I was without a phone for 5 days. Currently I have a number that is local for 1300 + miles away because they say that sprint does not have any local numbers in my area code. I have a ZTE phone as well and I will be rooting it as well. Thank you all so very much for all the information.

    Paritioning your sd card is done through Clockworkmod. I believe there is a tutorial in another section...

    partition by going into recovery then go down to advanced then to partition sd card select 1024mb then 0 swap. once its done your good to go.

    Awesome stuff! This was so easy, and I only got this phone 2 days ago.

    This was my first time messing with a smartphone. You guys Rock for putting this together!

    My phone is so much faster, better signal strength, more space for apps now! Plus I have a 45 dollar a month hotspot :D
    I cannot thank you guys enough!

    I've rooted with Odin, but I'm not sure where to go from here.   Do I need to partition my sd card prior to starting this?  I've tried to go into recovery and partition, but, I don't have the "advanced" option.  I'm not sure if I need to download something else before I can do that?  I'm a total newbie to all this, so any help would be seriously appreciated!

    OK newbie here so please be gentle. I have the Samsung Galaxy Precedent. Running ver 2.2.2. Kernel ver 2.6.35.7 Froyo. I can see the device under control panel, but not under computer. In control panel, it will not let me view files on the phone so I can't get AreaRom on the sd. Can't see or r/w to the files on the sd....nothing. Where it says view files D: it is unclickable. Downloaded and installed latest drivers as recommended. Can pull down usb notification on phone and it says connected with button to turn on usb storage. If I hit that, the indicator just goes round and round until I just have to exit

    Any help would be much appreciated! I would like to get pictures and files from sd and backup contacts, etc. before I install AreaRom and I can't install the AreaRom until I find a way to access the sd. Windows 7 starter on netbook, could that be the issue?

    Help...

    Im a newbie in this so i need some help i have a samsung galaxy precedent with a straight talk service i wanted to root my phone a long time ago but i wasn't sure how to root it well i waited. without been rooted i downloaded foxfi and straight talk technician shut my internet down so i called them and they warned me and told me that what i was doing is tethering and its illegal. So i got a second chance well the question is: if i root my phone i will not be caught? and what tethering app should i use to be undetected from straight talk? Another question im in the right page to root my samsung galaxy precedent?

    After hem-hawing around for a week or two or three worrying about bricking, and/or losing my data and apps I've purchased, I finally installed AreaRom 2.3 this morning and I couldn't be happier.  I had no idea my Straight Talk Samsung Precedent could run so smoothly and quickly.... I'm just blown away. Before this, my phone was like that old car oil commercial with the car dragging a huge anchor down the highway.  Thanks, everyone! 

    One thing... between steps 24 and 25, I had to restart manually.  I sat there for several minutes not knowing whether looking at the phrase "sdcard install complete." was part of the forewarned 5 minutes or not.

    Are these the same steps for CyanogenMod rom? With the AreaRom Odin? Sorry for the dumb question, I'm sure you can understand.. I've already bricked my phone once and obviously don't want to make that mistake again.

    Thanks for the help

    Once you root using the Odin you can install any rom. Just be aware of the roms requirements and follow the steps.

    AreaRom 2.3 says "CMW install"? This means I need to download clockworkmod app to install, or do I simply install exactly as the instructions say? Again I apologize for idiotic questions, I really am an intelligent person. Just new to this phone rom stuff... Oh and thanks to DeepFried, I'm already su from a one click method. Maybe by root you meant something different than what I'm thinking.. I was under the impression Odin is just for bootloaders, not rooting. I've downloaded the AreaRom Odin, AreaRom 2.3, and CyanogenMod port so thinking I'm ready to go.

    Sincerely,
