Samsung Galaxy Ace LogoLast time we saw on how you can root your Samsung Galaxy Ace GT 5830 which is on the Stock firmware 2.2.1 and also recently we came up with an article covering on how you can easily upgrade the firmware of your Samsung Galaxy Ace GT 5830 to the latest XXKP9 2.3.3. We really apologize for bringing in the article to root this firmware as for all those who have followed the procedure to update the latest XXKP9 2.3.3 the root access was revoked as the firmware was new. So, not to worry as we will now see in the due course of this article on how you can easily root your Samsung Galaxy Ace, which is powered by latest XXKP9 2.3.3 Gingerbread version of firmware.

Please note that many users doesn’t know the benefit of rooting the device, for all those you can refer on what are the benefits of rooting Android device here and then can proceed to the rooting of the device.

    • Zorbyss,
      to my knowledge, nothing can root a samsung galaxy ace 2.3.4 on DDKQ3…. and i also think it is the case generally re 2.3.4 on samsung galaxy ace.
      i see a lot of videos about it, but they requires firmware upgrades…

  19. Neal, i just bought a Galaxy Ace S5830 and i have 2 basic problems with it! I know here you are writing stuff about rooting it but i am hoping that maybe you can help!

    1.When i have my phone switched off the alarm wont ring!..

    2.When i receive an sms it only shows the time i received it and not the time they sent it to me!…

    think you can understand my frustration!..is there anything i can do to fix this?…thank you

    • sure buddy we are always there to help you! Never hesitate clearing your doubts or asking questions, we are here to guide you and empower you!
      Ans 1 – Its a phone issue as its programmed that way!
      Ans 2- again its a firmware specific issue and since the “time stamp” doesn’t come by default with the phone you will have to manually install the apk to get that time!
      Ans 3- We have taken down your request, we hope to address you really soon in the 2nd case and in the first case we are sorry to say that in off state the Alarm can’t be activated as of now with your firmware!
      If any firmware comes in the future with the capability we will surely cover the same on androidadvices.com. Stay tuned! Do let us know for any more help on ANDROID!
