Galaxy Ace S5830

How To Root Samsung Galaxy Ace GT S5830 on Gingerbread Firmware

Pre Requisites:

  • In the due course of the rooting process, there are chances that you may lose all the data which is there in the phone. Please note that this data includes the SMS, Contacts and also other data like the images and videos. So, it’s recommended to create a backup of all these so that these can be restored back in case of deletion. Though this consumes bit of an extra time but this step is of a great respite when the data gets deleted.
  • To back up the videos, songs and images you can move all these into your SD Card which can be then removed from the phone till the process of rooting is finished so as to safeguard the data from getting corrupted. To backup as well as restore your contacts and SMS you can refer the below mentioned links.

Procedure to Backup and Restore SMS,

Procedure to Backup and Restore Contacts,

Procedure to Backup and Restore Images, Videos etc.

  • Note that the minimum battery backup should be more than 90% so as to facilitate proper rooting process and also ensure that the KIES has been updated with the latest version which is the KIES 2 version as a minimum and also close the Antivirus solution till the rooting process is completed.
  • For applying the rooting process, you will be requiring a computer or laptop which comes with a minimum of USB 2.0 slots along with the administration rights privilege. It has been found that many users were having the issues about the Port not getting opened, so this step needs to be followed strictly. So, let’s proceed for the instructions which you can find the same in the next page.
  • Also, to note down the APN as well as MMS Settings which are responsible for the internet access as well as for sending MMS Settings then from this path “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names” you can note down all the settings by tapping on the MMS, GPRS or 3G Settings. As soon as the rooting process is done, you can then configure these settings again if these are lost in the process of rooting. So, in the next page, let’s proceed to the instructions to root Samsung Galaxy Ace S 5830 handset.

    my cel always gave me a message that the internal memory was full, even when nothing was installed on the phone, i had the pics and music on the SD card. after a while i had to turn the phone off cuz the screen was frozen and when i tried to turn it on again it started looping between the samsung animation and the samsung logo. what can i do to recover the information i have on the phone? is there any way i can turn it in safe mode to access that and the reboot the system to the factory settings?

    Excuse me, I’m need of 2.3.6 DDQ8 a proper Kernel and Root for Galaxy Ace S-5830… It’s having problems with installing the Kernel

    • Neela Pradeep

      March 9, 2012 at 9:41 pm

      its a full firmware, its not a kernel!

      • Ace

        May 25, 2012 at 11:37 am

        Yes, however, it maybe rooted, but it needs a CF-Root Kernel adaptation for it to be fully rooted. Without the proper Kernel, you can’t run Rooted applications.

    Hi! Please, help me!

    I have unrooted my phone following the procedure from above and apparently it all went successfully, but afterwards I was unable to activate data network mode, so I can’t connect to 3G or 2G networks. When I try to activate the data network mode the 3G icon that is supposed to appear on the top of the screen doesn’t appear. Can you tell me how to solve this problem? Why can’t I active data network mode?

    Please, tell me how to reverse the process. I have already restored the phone to factory settings and cleared cache in recovery mode, but the superuser application is still working. I want to remove it completely.

    Thank you!

    This page contains the following error
    error on line 7 at column 35: xmlParseEntity

    Below is a rendering of the page….

    Please could you help?

    Hey NeaL,

    I have updated the firmware of my S5830 to Gingerbread DDQK5 following your instructions from the other article. First of all thanks a lot for that.

    Now I want to also root my phone following these instructions mentioned here. But before that I would like to know to ask the following 3 questions :

    1. Are there any instructions already available to unroot the phone incase I need to show it to a Service Centre so that the warranty is not void? If yes, can you guide me to it as well.

    2. Will I be able to update to Cynanogen Mod after rooting?

    3. Does this have any effect on battery life after rooting? postively or negatively?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    You Rock!!

    • NeaL Pradeep

      September 7, 2011 at 2:15 pm

      1. yes, you can apply with any firmware and the root access will be revoked!
      2. yes you can update with the CM7!
      3. battery won’t be affected!

          Turn off your phone
          3) Press POWER+HOME BUTTON
          4) Select update from sdcard, select the file upd_1.zip
          5) After the update completed – reboot
          6) Now you have rooted S5830
          this this is the corect one
          thanks

        Hi Neal,

        I just wanted to mention that i also got the exact same error as Stern.

        When trying to apply update from sdcard, the installation is aborted due to “E: Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip (status 7)

        I should mention that i have a stock standard firmware version 2.3.4. Gingerbread DVKQ3

        I have tried putting the file in various locations on the SD card and still get the same error. I also get the same error when trying other root zips.

        Do you think this is because it is the DVKQ3 Version? I notice that there is a firmware DDKQ6 out.

        If you can help me in any way it would be greatly appreciated.

        Thanks in advance, Stirling

        • Pradeep Neela

          December 24, 2011 at 2:54 pm

          yes ddkq6 is there!

            Hi,
            Just bought a samsung galaxy ace, im afraid the ‘Download the Ace Rooting Package’ link doesn’t seem to work anymore. I have android version 2.3.6

        • Cubis

          February 23, 2012 at 1:08 pm

          Same problem with 2.3.6.

      Hi Stern,

      Did you figure out how to get past the following error?

      When trying to apply update from sdcard, the installation is aborted due to “E: Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip (status 7)”

      I also get the same error. Please let me know if you know a way.

      Thanks,
      Stirling
