This is not developed by Arearom.  This was completely found on other sites and being shared for informational purposes all credit was attempted to be given.

First things first you will need the drivers to be able to do anything with this phone.

First topic just download and install.

Best root method I have found is the odin way the following link walks you completely through it.

Next is the best rom I have found.  I have tried several for this phone and only the Honey Bread Mod allows for the ext4 mount trick.  This mod also allows for overclocking of the prevail.

To install this rom download it [hide]http://www.mediafire.com/?os77lmky6j26ebt[/hide]


Here is a way to install the ROM using the Clock Work Mod.

First -         Place the rom on your sdcard while it is still in it's zip format. This is very important because if it is unzipped it 
                  will not install in the following steps.

Second -     Place the phone into recovery mode.  The way you do this is to power down the phone and then press
                  (Volume up camera and power button all at the same time)  You will see Android_ with the ( _ ) will blinking
                  if done properly.

Third -        Using the volume down button highlight (install Zip from sdcard) then choose it by pressing the camera
                  button.
                  In all of these instructions the volume up and down button moves the selected text while the
                  camera button selects the action.


Fourth -      Select the (choose zip from sdcard) by pressing the camera button.

Fifth -          Select (187MoD-HoneyBread6.zip) let it install.

Sixth -         Use the back button to go to the main menu of the reset options.

Seventh -    Use volume keys to select (wipe data/factory reset) and then (yes)

Eight -         Use volume buttons and choose (advanced)

Ninth -         Wipe dalvik cache

The following steps are extra and not needed if you don't want to use the Mount Ext4 for more internal memory trick.  This requires a good sdcard of some size.

Tenth -         Partition sdcard  set to whatever you want the internal memory to be added.  Swap size make sure you
                    use 0m

Eleventh -    Do another factory reset again and restart the phone you should be up and running.  I always like to leave
                    with a factory reset always seems to do better with this extra step.


Finally my last step to making a usable phone in my mind is installing flash.  I Always do this before I give the phones back to my family to make it for there own.

Follow the instructions to install off of this page they work great for installing flash.

All Credit for this post should go to the developers at xda, android forums and any others who's post i borrowed to make this guide.  I just put all the info in one place but these guys made the odin roms and flash work and they should be thanked.

This has been my first tutorial and detailed post like this if you have any questions feel free.

Running an original Previal, bought it a week after they came out, rooted soon after, but nothing more.

I'm sick of Low Space warnings, random lock-ups, and not having Flash. Will walk through your tutorial in the next day or two and report back.

Thanks for your work!

on the tenth step its really important for you to at least select a 1024 or more that will give you the internal space you are looking for.

So 187MoD-HoneyBread works on the Precedent? I'll have to let my boy Skater-187 know. I don't think he tried his Rom on the Precedent. Good to know though. Thanks!

BTW: You may want to throw his name in the op, just so he doesn't bug out about it. He can be a real D*ck sometimes, lol.

Sorry about the Lingo, I'm used to some of the other forums and get mixed up. I thought this was for the Precedent. I was was just stating that I'm sure Skater would be happy as hell if his Rom worked on the Precedent as well as the Prevail. Has anyone tried it?

I am up and running except for the memory trick you mentioned (Mount Ext4 for more internal memory trick). I have the partition, but what's next? Obviously it isn't automatic, but I am new at this and need instructions on how to get the phone to use that partition as memory. (I checked and it doesn't show it as memory).

Also, the skin (Weather Clock) is chinese, and it seems the localization is too - how to fix that? GPS won't pick up my city.

This tread was vary helpful, I was using the f19 kernel and had several problems honeybread has solved all of these. The only complaint I have with it is that the 360 stuff is all in Chinese. Very good walk threw and thank you for flash been wanting that. Remember always titanium backup first!
