How To Update Samsung Galaxy Ace GT S5830 to Gingerbread 2.3.4 XXKPH Firmware

Galaxy Ace LogoIf you have a Samsung Galaxy Ace and if you are still wondering on why still there is no word on Gingerbread 2.3.4 version, then you will be rejoiced to know that your wait for the same is now over as we will see in the due course of this article on how you can easily update your Samsung Galaxy Ace with the 2.3.4 version. This update comes as a respite as when we last covered on the updates for the Galaxy Ace with the versions as Gingerbread 2.3.3, most of the users either requested for the article on how to get back to the stock version of Froyo or an article for updating with the better version of the Gingerbread. Though as of now we didn’t felt the requirement to get back to the older version as with the arrival of Gingerbread 2.3.4 for the Galaxy Ace most of the bugs have been solved.

Right from the refreshing all new user interface to an all new set of optimizations, you will surely love the overall intuitive experience which will be reflected after updating your phone with the latest Gingerbread XXKPH 2.3.4 version.

Please note that updating with this firmware won’t mean that your warranty will be void as updating the device will just update the device and doesn’t root the phone. For all those who don’t know what rooting is then we would like to tell you that rooting voids the warranty and updating the firmware won’t. So, it’s a safe thing to update your phone to the Gingerbread XXKPH 2.3.4 version if and only if you follow each and every single instruction carefully which will ensure that you are on a right track to update your phone. So, let’s proceed to the pre upgrade instructions followed by the list of quick enhancements which have been made followed by the instructions to update your phone with the XXKPH 2.3.4 firmware version of Gingerbread on Galaxy Ace.

Also, as a proud reader of Android Advices we would like to say you all guys out there that this update will be the last update for the Galaxy Ace that is in terms of the 2.3.4 as many might be hoping for the Gingerbread 2.3.5 for Galaxy Ace as the 2.3.5 Android Gingerbread version is for all the devices which are powered by the NFC (Near Field Chip). Though there will be plenty and ample amount of update for Galaxy Ace in the 2.3.4 Gingerbread series as depending upon the user’s requests as well as feedbacks, the version of 2.3.4 will be optimized to the best possible way. Please note that you should only proceed for the updation process if and only if your device is S 5830 Galaxy Ace unlocked version or else your phone will be locked and also might get bricked. Also, we hold no responsibility if something happens for your device if you don’t follow the instructions which are mentioned below.

  73. Can i downgrade the frimware from android 2.3.4 to android 2.3.3? Isit using the same method as upgrading?

  74. Hi, got a question: one of the reasons for me to upgrade to Gingerbread, was the SIP functionality. I successfully upgraded to android 2.3.4 using your very useful tool – without any problem. But when I look under settings – Calls, I simply don’t see the ‘internet calls’ option. I supposed it could be blocked by the provider I got the phone from? Any way to get around this, or should it have been erased when I upgraded?
    Thnx!

  128. Update went OK but default language on boot looked Polish or Russian so needed to goto locale settings. Also there is a strange icon in the control panel area… a letter ‘A’ with a red circle around it that does nothing. I guess it should launch an app that is missing or not relevant ?

  129. Hi,
    Thanks for info.
    Upgrade went through smoothly.
    After the completion of upgrade some other language(other than English) appeared. Is this expected?

  130. Kari P. Thormar

    Am in Iceland, and owner of Samsung Ace telphone.
    When I ask the seller of this phone, to change to Gingerbread 2.3.4, he tells me that, it has not arrived for Iceland.

    Can you please inform me, when that will happen.

    with appreciation in advance for your replay.

    Hi Neal,

    I have upgraded my Galaxy ACE as per your instructions. Only one problem, as per your given instructions, mobile is not going in to RECOVERY mode but, it is going in RAMDUMP mode.

    I have followed instructions given by “Ravi E” and able to go into RECOVERY MODE.

    Thanks to both NEAL and RAVI.

  133. Dear Sir

    I have updated my Samsung Ace to 2.3.4 GB. After download it automatically booted and is working fine. Will it affect the warranty. Then what to do. What is recovery mode and why should I remove the cache? Can you please mail me?

    Thanks

  134. Guys to go into recovery mode you need to press Home key & power key. Navigate using the vol keys & select using home key. Hope this helps.. :)

  135. hi neal,im a lilttle confused..is this article an update for galaxy ace gt s5830 or galaxy s?? coz im using galaxy ace..

  136. Hey Neal,
    Please edit your tutorial on how to enter recovery mode in Galaxy ACE .Its different from what you have provided in the article. You have provided the correct method it in another article of yours . I could clear the cache after following the other link mentioned below

    You will have to switch ON your device in the recovery Mode which can be done by holding the Middle button and then Power ON the device by pressing the Power ON button. to enter recovery mode in ACE

  137. i upgraded my ace to gingerbread 2.3.4 yesterday, but after running for some time, i noticed that the touch is not responding accurately. specially, when i am texting on the virtual qwerty.., i press a key on one part f the screen and some other key also responds without getting touched… this happens at times, not always, but everytime i am texting.

    can’t figure out the prob. :( as no one else has ever had a complaint like this, i believe.

    HELP!!!

    • have you tried updating again?

    • hey Neal,
      Also after two days of usage after the update… these are the problems that i faced. i am not able to make a call to silent when a call comes using the volume key which i could do earlier and also as mentione by shivanjan the keypad is not working accurately. Any idea what could solve this or can we expect a new update with a these fixes??

  138. Hi thanks,

    i got no prob at all ..waiting patiently for updates if there is any ..

    Bless you.

  139. i can go in dowload mode with ace but i cant go in recovery mode.when i do 3 button recovery it says arm mode or something like that.it is not recovery like galaxy s.i can do nothing with that(reboot,wipe data or factory reset).sorry for my english.please help me.on ace is now 2.3.3.thanks neal.

  140. also am encountering problem connecting to my wifi… it stays at obtaining the ip address… and does not get connected. can you please advice me on how go about this cos i am connected thru the wifi always and this is a big letdown :(..and i am unable to c the old apps present on the SD card

  141. Hey Neal,
    Thanks for the update .. it worked without any problems.
    however i had trouble in clearing the cache. the last step mentioned because i dnt get the screen shown in the video ,rather i get a static screen with some mode mentioned in it. Please help me on the same…Also the unlocking of the home screen still looks like my froyo ,but as i have in gingerbread its a slide on the screen rite. Any way to change that.

  142. The zip archieve is not opening-plz help
