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.

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 cacheThe 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
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.

I just put all the info in one place but these guys made the odin roms and flash work and they should be thanked.
