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.

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.

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.

    Actually I flashed this firmware to come from CyanogenMod to stock. Everything is working fine. But the csc is not set to my region. And so the kies is saying that this phone cannot be updated. I am from India. Where can I get the correct csc file?
