KMS will root this phone, run the bat and follow the directions, after you unmount the sdcard and enable usb debugging its best to reboot the phone. seems to have teh highest success

I'm new to this, so let me see if I have this process down:

I hookup my Replenish to the PC without the SD card.
I transfer PrevailToExistence.bat to the device (where/which folder)?
I run the file within the device.

Is there anything else that needs to be done to root the device that most people would have already assumed to do?

Unfortunately this did not work at all for me. I have the drivers correctly installed because if I put an SD card in, I can read/write to the sd card from my wife's replenish. I did remove the SD Card before trying this & USB Debugging was enabled. This is the screenshot of what came up. Also why is it that this says its for the Samsung Prevail? Does this batch file also work for the replenish? Anyway take a look at the screenshot & tell me what I did wrong because I followed the above instructions with no success.




UPDATE*** I ran the batch file & rebooted the phone when the batch file said "waiting for phone to reconnect" while it was rebooting, the batch file continued to run and failed........BUT, after it rebooted, I ran the batch file again never disconnecting the phone and I finally had success. Thank you for this method but more detailed instructions would have made this as easy as it really is. Thanks.

I just tried your method, and was unsuccessful, I had my card unmounted, usb was in debug mode. maybe there was something else you had to do?

update: I pressed space to continue as I powered on my phone, and it worked fine, many thanks to everyone!

Worked on a coworkers Replenish, here's what I did to make it work:

0. Did not install drivers (I already have samsung captivate drivers and samsung transform drivers from rooting previous phones, so the phone was already recognized)

1.Unzipped KMS.zip on my computer.
2. Put phone into USB Debug mode. Plugged in USB cable.
3. (Phone is currently on) Removed SD card.
4. Ran bat file.
5. Received errors identical to those screencap'd by PRBajista above.

6. Powered phone off (left it plugged in).
7. Powered phone back on.
8. After the boot logo, but before the lock screen came up, I ran the bat file again.
9. Bat file ran sucessfully, phone rebooted by itself and was rooted.


I'm guessing the correct process for rooting this phone is to do exactly what I did (install drivers for step 0 if you don't have already), except skip step 4 and 5.

seems very coordinated... what if I have bad reflexes? (in other words, no other way to root?)

Yep, worked perfectly for my replenish too--I simply had to get the samsung drivers and then run the program right as the samsung logo came up after rebooting.


QUESTION: Anyone know how to UNROOT the Replenish?
