How To Update Samsung Galaxy Ace GT S5830 to Gingerbread 2.3.3 Firmware

Pre Upgrade Instructions:

  • Please note that upgrading with this firmware won’t mean that you have rooted your device and also upgrading with this firmware won’t void your warranty too. Warranty only voids when you root your Android device.
  • So, first up before proceeding to update, you need to ensure that you have synced all your contacts with your Google Account, all sms, applications, videos and music files which are there in your phone should be taken a backup or else the data will be lost. Anything which is in SD card will not be lost, so you can alternatively move to SD Card or preferably from your SD Card to the computer so that you can restore all the contents back.
  • After this remove the SIM card as well as the external SD cards if any in your phone, just to make sure that in an unlikely event the data in it doesn’t get corrupted,
  • Ensure that you have kept original USB cable handy which you have got with your Samsung Galaxy Ace GT S5830 and also the Galaxy Ace device,
  • Additionally, ensure that your phone has at least more than 50% of battery power left, this is just an advisory which if followed then you will not experience any difficulties as while updation of the device the battery consumption is at a maximum,
  • Also, ensure that your computer / laptop which runs on a XP, Vista or Windows 7 OS the firewall and other antivirus programs are disabled and also you should have admin privileges to download and install the software including the drivers and also along with this you will be requiring the USB port on your computer which supports USB 2.0.
