Samsung Galaxy Ace LogoFor all those who failed to update their devices in the last attempt, here is a great relief for all the users of Samsung Galaxy Ace GT S5830. Due to some serious bugs most of the users had to deal with the problems and errors in the back light time out, but not anymore as this has been completely fixed in an all new firmware version. Since these ROM’s are not the official ROMs but are the beta leaks which are almost equivalent to the original ROMs which will be soon launched by Samsung. The last version of Gingerbread 2.3.3 for Galaxy Ace was dubbed as XXKP8 but now the new version is dubbed as Gingerbread 2.3.3 XXKP9 where XX stands for European firmware and the remaining alpha numeric code denotes the version number.

Please note that this is not an official ROM or release by Samsung but an official beta release leak from Samsung which is being offered to all the beta testers who work with Samsung. If your device has been rooted then you will have to again root Samsung Galaxy Ace as after rooting all the system files are refreshed. Once the firmware is updated successfully then you can again root Samsung Galaxy Ace So, let’s proceed and see on how you can install the latest Gingerbread version for your Galaxy Ace GT S5830 which can be done by following the pre upgrade instructions followed by the procedure to install the latest Gingerbread 2.3.3 XXKP9.

    May i know how to downgrade mt version to android froyo from ginger bread..

  6. Even If I run as admin. i m still getting error cannot open the usb serial port. code: 5

  7. I just got the Ace Thai version, which was running Froyo 2.2.1. I went along and updated loading the files from samfirmware.com and selected the 2.3.4 the version which on the screen was the only one in the color. Odin uploaded fine to the phone and everything got displayed in Polish when it went back online after boot. I cleared the phone as described, and installed programs. Tested everything and it looked great UNTIL I went on google maps…The GPS logo turn on in the statusbar, but nothing. Downloaded some testprograms from market, but but NOTHING.

    After searching on google for this topic, I let the phone stay for quite some time outside in the garden, but NOTHING. Reboot, Nothing, Reflash, Nothing, downgraded to 2.3.3 NOTHING, downgraded to 2.2.1 NOTHING…..

    What happened…..

  8. Update went smoothly!!! :)
    Thanks a ton guys!! :D

  9. Estou com um pepino. Aceitei a atualização do meu Samsung Galaxy Ace, via Kies para a versão 2.3.4. Agora perdi o root e não consigo mais fazer. Já testei várias versões do SuperOneClick (agora ele trava no meio do processo), que tinha usado na versão anterior e funcionou bem. Deve ser um problema desta versão, pois fiz o root em outro aparelho igual, mas com a versão anterior e funcionou bem.
    Alguem pode me dar uma mão, por favor?
