Trying to root a samsung galaxy centura straight talk

Ok first off i'm old and never done this so go easy on me! Ok i read the tutorial and there are a few things i don't understand do i need a external sd card? Where do i put clockworkmod? Do i just copy and paste the root folder to my internal memory then power off --volume up/down power? Also i know it might sound stupid but i really don't understand the root tutorial at all. So please any help would be great thanks.

Will someone please help me on team viewer!

my suggestions is you install cwm first then make a nandroid backup after you do that youll see a clockworkmod folder in your sdcard.
then flash the OC kernel+ ROM via CWM, itll have root oc kernel and the ROM for you.

heres the link for cwm:

heres the link for the OC + ROM:

Maybe a sticky FAQ for each phone with just those basics. Root,  recovery, ROM.

I am having similar problems.   I originally decided to root my phone so I could try to fix an issue with my phone not sync-ing to my google account through ANY app.  Just keeps saying, "can't establish a reliable connection."  I found I could fix it if I root my phone.  Now I tried to use odin, but it's not finding my phone.  So I'm stuck on step 1, basically.    Any help would be amazing since I, as well, am pretty green at all this.

Thank you.  That's actually the method I've been trying to follow, but when I get my phone in Dowload Mode Odin isn't recognizing it.  I couldn't find any drivers to update on my phone, and when I tried using the latest version of Kies 3 it said my phone wasn't supported.  I'm really lost and frustrated.  I've spent days trying to resolve this issue.  Any help or tips are appreciated.

I used the link to download the drivers, but when following the installation wizard once it reaches the installation part it just freezes and never installs.  I've tried through a few different downlaods, they all seem to do the same thing.

the drivers could take a while to install..

if all your having  trouble with is syncing your google account..go to settings and make sure 3g is turned on and also wifi is on.....sounds like when you first signed up to google you checked the  to sync on wifi only.......that would be the only reason for sync not working..........

That is my first issue.  Where do I find the 3G settings to check if it's on?  If you mean "enable data" then this has been done.  My wifi is on also, and connected.  How can I check to see if I selected the "Wifi only" sync?  And since I'm connected thru wifi should that rule that out?

I will try letting the driver install go over night, 'cause I would like to be able to root my Centura.

sounds like every thing is on and right......only other thing it could be is your using the wrong e mail and or password that you used the first time...........try dialing *22890 and see what happens.......they may be having trouble with your service..........
