Following these steps from beginging to end will allow you to full obtain root and flash a new rom from begining to end. Follow each step and you will be good.

Easy root guide for the MyTouch slide currently any version downloads at bottom
Make sure before starting that the device has atleast 50% battery charge.
Go to C drive on pc and make a new folder we will call root
Copy then all the files from the zip into that folder.
__________________________________________________ _________
not required but you should also copy a rom that you want to use the the root of the sdcard on the device too then I have included teamfenix 1.7.1 as is a stable 2.2 android rom but you can use anyone you want.
__________________________________________________ _________
First we will need to get some files to the device would be easiest with a following settings already done:
settings > applications > development > USB debugging (check mark here)
settings > connect to pc > charge only
settings > wireless & networks > wifi unchecked (important)
settings > sound & display > screen timeout > never
Now connect device
Then start the command prompt and uses these commands to move the files we will need
cd C:\root
myroot (just allow to continue we covered the steps in it already)
Will take a few minutes for that to copy everything over to the places on the phone where we need them. will look like is frozen on ESPRIMG.zip that is normal don't interupt it just let it go.
when done we are now ready to actually get root and allow phone to let us get a recovery on there we can use with a few more commands

commands_______ things in () don't run just memos
adb shell
(should now see a $)
cd /sqlite_stmt_journals
chmod 0755 exploid
(will have initated the loop hole to get root)
(at this time go to settings and turn wifi on and then back off before continuing)
---The password is : secretlol
(You should now have a # instead of a $)
cd /data/local
chmod 04755 *
/data/local/flash_image misc /data/local/mtd0.img
__________________________________________________ _____________
ok now we are set to apply the engineering build to get a custom rom
Turn off the device
Press and hold volume down and then power up and hold both
let go when see the 3 skateboarding androids
give the phone a minute then will read the moded file on card
when is ready press volume up to apply this update
--- This will take a while just let it run
WAIT - when done it will ask you to reboot DON'T
press volume down for no
then back on bootloader screen press volume down once to highlight recovery and select with power to boot recovery
on the recovery you will have a device with a triangle
hold volume up and power for a second together
volume down and power to select for apply update.zip
and you will then be loaded into the clockwork recovery and will beable to flash the rom of your choosing from sd card.

how do i root my samsung sch-s736c by android

If you are lucky enough to have not updated and are still on the VRUAMDK Build number then here is the root method (source & credit given to: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2290798):
STEP 1: Go to the source link above and download the five items in the first step, Samsung Official USB Drivers, ODIN v3.07, VRUAMD2 Prerelease Kernel, Stock VRUAMDK Kernel for your phone, and Motochopper Root Exploit Tool.
STEP 2: Boot your phone into ODIN mode.
STEP 3: Flash the VRUAMD2 Prerelease Kernel using ODIN v3.07 in PDA section only. Boot back into Android and verify that the flash was successful.
STEP 4: Follow Settings -> More -> About phone -> tap "Build number" 7 to unlock Developer options and verify in there that you have "USB debugging" checked and "Verify apps via USB" unchecked. Verify in Security setting on your device that you have "Unknown sources" checked and "Verify apps" unchecked
STEP 5: Connect your phone to your computer and open "Run.bat" file from the location you have extracted motochopper to. You will see a message on the phone asking you to accept the new computer connection (select to always allow and select OK).
STEP 6: After motochopper runs and your phone reboots on its own, check if SuperSU has any update in the Play Store. Open SuperSU app and let the binary update itself to the latest VERY IMPORTANT OR YOU WILL LOSE ROOT ON STEP 4. Now you can open a root application and verify that is able to access root properly.
STEP 7: Now to restore the stock kernel you need to boot your phone into ODIN mode (how-to link above).
STEP 8: Flash the Stock VRUAMDK Kernel using ODIN v3.07 in PDA section only (follow same link in step 3 for a how-to).
STEP 9: Boot back to Android and verifying everything is still working and kernel has flashed successfully. You should now be fully rooted and on the fully stock original firmware that came on your device.
To restore a custom recovery (optional), follow Step 5 on the source link.

firmware failed

Are you installing a rom from .zip file?
I assume you are doing that.
To follow these steps, you will need ClockWorkMode and rooted stock rom. In recovery mode, load CWM, Clear dalvik cache and data partion and then install ROM .zip fike. Try to obtain new package of ROM files. The one you may have may have some internal configuration problems.
Now, if your phone doesn't load any OS, try flashing with ODIN with stock ROM packages. You can download it from xda-developers or by searchibg it in google.. Note, try to watch some demos from youtube before actually doing it. It will help you to know correct procedures.
