How to Update Galaxy ACE S5830 with Droid ACE v2.1 Firmware

Procedure to Update Samsung Galaxy ACE S5830 with Droid ACE CM 7.2 firmware:

  • Once the file is copied, you now need to disconnect the device and turn Off the phone so that it can be entered in the recovery mode.
  • The recovery mode in the Galaxy ACE S5830 can be entered by Holding Menu Button and then Power ON the device. If the device turns ON in the normal mode then you need to try again to enter into the recovery mode.
  • In the recovery mode, you need to select “install zip from sd card” > “choose zip from sd card” and then choose the Cyanogen Mod 7.2 Firmware Zip file which is placed in the phone.
  • Once the file is selected, it will take 4 -5 minutes for applying this update. Once the update is applied, the device will land back to the recovery mode screen, in recovery mode screen select “reboot system now” by selecting “Go back” option with the help of Volume keys and power button.

Tip: If your Galaxy ACE doesn’t power up or say it gets into the boot loop mode, you need to re insert the battery and then re try the process of firmware update by following the above steps.

Do let us know in the comments section below just in case if you face any issue in updating your Galaxy ACE. You have successfully applied the update of Cyanogen Mod 7.2 Firmware in your device.



  1. Friends, This method of flashing your device or installing any custom OS never worked. Don’t try with your device. I tried many times not only with this version but with such number of mod. versions by installing from SD card in recovery mode but every time my device got bricked. The device is not booting and ends up with a screen written ANDROID on it or a blank screen & there after no response. Again I had to flash my device with official firmware using ODIN flashing tool..

  2. Dear Pradeep Neela, Please suggest how to overcome this issue. I also face same problem when flashing other rom.
