Thank you very much for the post.

For those of you that have that phone, there are more help tips (after getting root) at the following:

http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-centura/
Confirming another user with the Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy Centura S738C successfully rooted with this method. I ran a system update before running poot and I still had to "poot" twice, but no issues with the QT that some are reporting. The QT libraries were downloaded "automagically" during the process. I did receive the following:

"A demon materialized while pooting. Error Code 87 su binary was not written. You need to restart your device."

at which point I simply pulled the battery to reboot, then moved directly to step nine, rebooted, step nine again, then the options popped up. Rebooted one last time, then to the market to install Superuser.

Thank you to all involved, developer, testers, and writers/posters.

Glad to see some work being done on these. My friend has the sch S738c, and I'm going to try rooting. Wondering, is there no ROMs for these phones?? Didn't realize they were so different as to not have any ROMs.I'm thinking she won't have any need for root, if there isn't any available ROMs or mods for it.
I do good at rooting and flashing, but wouldn't know where to begin for a port of any ROM.
I've searched around and not found anything.

I haven't rooted mine yet but one of the reasons to root would be to get antivirus software working like Avast-anti-theft.

Understandable.
Maybe we can sweet talk one of these devs into porting a ROM for us, and or a kernel. To me, a good kernel, and adjustability of ui and performance is a main reason for root/ROM.

I do not get any black screen or reboot after that.

After pressing "press here to poot" ,did you got 3 options above log ?
