    So… My ID : COM section doesn’t turn Yellow! I tried Installing the USB Drivers in my computer & Go to the Path “Settings > Wireless & Network” (assumed on phone), but I couldn’t find: “USB Settings” in otrder to ensure that “Samsung KIES” option is ticked before connecting the phone to the computer. So, when I click STAR on ODIN, the message :Please connect phones !!” appears. HEEELP!!!!

    I had upgraded my Ace S5830 with the previous upgrade Gingerbread XXKPH 2.3.4 hence it seems I was unable to upgrade my ACE to the latest Gingerbread 2.3.6 XWKPY. Is there any way I can upgrade my Ace to the current firmware. The first ODIN window turned RED and displayed Fail. My Ace would not work, so I had to upgrade it back to my previous version in Russian and then back in English. Is there something I did wrong or thats the way it is ??? Thanks for ur HELP

    I find this website very useful but you guys should check what you post before posting it, this is a downgrade to 2.3.3 not 2.3.6, keep doing the good work, but please, research before upload an article or a firmware.

    Lockscreen is like the older versions, it reads 2.3.3!!!!! But the bouncy overscroll feels good..overall feels faster smoother for now.
