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:
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.
