How to Update Samsung Galaxy ACE S5830 with ICS Android 4.0 Styled Custom ROM

Ice Cream Sandwich LogoMyth, no we are not talking of any myths here but “Myth” is an all new custom ROM which is being designed for Galaxy Ace S5830 smartphone. This Custom ROM firmware is mainly based on the Gingerbread 2.3.5 BUKS1 but if you have a look at the build number and the interface it’s an exact replica of the Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0.1 version. In the due course of the article, we will check out on what are the features of this version. Please note that this is not an Official version of firmware which is released by Samsung Electronics.

Unfortunately, there won’t be an Official Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 firmware due to hardware limitations. So, keeping things simple, we will first check out on what are the list of pre requisites you need to follow after which we will head directly to the procedure to apply this ICS Android 4.0 firmware, to be precise its Android 4.0.1 version.

ACE ICS 1 ACE ICS 2 ACE ICS 3 ACE ICS 4 ACE ICS 55 ACE ICS 6 ace ics 7 ace ics 8 ace ics 9

Essential Pre Requisites:

  • Charge your device with the minimum of 80% so as to ensure that the battery is calibrated with which you will be able to enjoy the best of the battery life.
  • It’s always better to backup all your data present in your phone because after the firmware update the data present in the device may get lost or corrupted. To keep it simple, you can make use of below mentioned tips so as to backup / restore the data.

Note: Don’t use KIES to backup as KIES won’t be detecting the phone after this update since it’s a custom ROM.

Notes – Backup in the mail so that you can then restore manually
SMS Messages – Use “SMS Backup & Restore app”,
Contacts Stored in Phone Memory – Sync with the Gmail application,
Call Log - Call Log and Restore
Videos, Images, Videos & Files etc.– Copy to internal / External SD Card,
Internet & MMS Settings – Backup all the settings from “Applications > Settings > Wireless and Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names

  • Enable the USB Debugging Mode in your Galaxy ACE S5830 from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”. After this, you need to disable / close all the tools like Firewalls, Antivirus suites as these generally tend to interrupt the process of firmware update.

USB Debugging

Let’s head to the procedure to apply this custom firmware in your Samsung Galaxy ACE S5830.

    Hi,

    I rooted the DDKQ6 firmware successfully.
    In recovery mode, instead of “install from sdcard”, I could see “apply update from sdcard”. I used this option with the TheMythICS_Lite.zip file but like many others, I also received the error E :failed to mount / cache (invalid argument )
    Then I tried to install the DDKQ6 firmware again but it didn’t go on after installation of amss. Now, i am only getting the first logo screen and the device is restarting again and again.

    Can you suggest something here?

    Tried to install it.
    I had 2.3.3, perfectly rooted, a perfectly functional SD card as well.
    But as a lot of other people have found, I was getting the same error message. Something like ”can’t update… SD card not mounted…”

    Had to go through hell of a lot to get it functioning again. Thanks to the Odin software… I now have 2.3.5

    I personally like using new things whenever possible… but should have read the whole comment thread before I proceeded.
    Now that I have read it all, the last comment says ”It’s no longer recommended from us.”

    WTH dude, do you have any idea how many phones you could possibly brick with an untested process which apparently have plenty of glitches even if it can be installed somewhat.
    I agree with Stephen Elliot, you should take the link down immediately. Or at least put some fair warnings at the very beginning.

    It just keeps looking for GPS signal and wont get a fix no matter how long you leave it.

    Dear Pradeep your are doing great to publish new release of firmware but I/we facing difficulty for that According to quote by Maarten on January 3, 2012 at 6:20 pm you are advise him to [you need to rename the zip file to “update.zip”] but it also happen in my case. My firmware is rooted one with ddkq6 2.3.4. I have installed Titanium Backup and have back-up all the data. When I update from your advice it is exactly happen like quote by nitesh on January 4, 2012 at 10:00 am (Status 0) failed to mount/cache(Invalid argument). Then My phone is not started early.
    Then I apply ddkq5 2.3.4 firmware through Odin
    AND FOLLOW quote by Siddharth Roy on January 10, 2012 at 3:03 am
    I think ClockWorkMod do the work.
    MANY MANY THANKS TO Siddharth
    Dear Pradeep Neela don’t mind please publish the article in such way that the command you publish should match with Phone options.

    I think “Install Zip from SD card” is difference from “apply update from sdcard” which is available on phone.

    Hello everyone,

    Big fan of this site and love ur stuff. XDA-forum is bit tough lingo for me, so I visit this site, for easy simple and digest-able instructions to root and install new firmwares to my Ace.

    Following this thread for some time and seems like we have some problems with installation.

    PLEASE FOLLOW THIS STEPS AND I ASSURE YOU IT WILL WORK, AS FEW MINUTES BACK I HAVE FINISHED INSTALLING MINE.

    1. ROOTING FOR 2.3.3/2.3.4/2.3.5/2.3.6/2.3.7

    a) Download attached file called upd_1.zip from link below and copy it to your sdcard
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=585310&d=1304408057
    b) Turn off your phone
    c) Press POWER+HOME BUTTON
    d) Select update from sdcard, select the file upd_1.zip
    e) After the update completed – reboot
    f) Now you have rooted S5830

    2. INSTALLING ClockWorkMod

    a) Download ClockWorkModAce.zip
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=654588&d=1310632842
    b) Copy ClockWorkModAce.zip file on SDcard
    c) Completely switch off the phone
    d) Reboot by pressing Home+Power button and then release only the power button
    e) Now goto apply update from sdcard >> then select the ClockWorkModAce.zip
    f) That`s it… After the process completed reboot your phone.

    Video Guide
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlgZK7VsecA

    3. INSTALLING The ICS Myth ROM
    a) Download TheMythICS_Lite.zip file
    http://hotfile.com/dl/142059743/d2e5551/TheMythICS_Lite.zip.html
    b) Copy TheMythICS_Lite.zip file to SD card
    c) Backup all your data and charge your phone to a good battery level
    d) Switch off your phone and re start it in CWM mode by pressing home+power button
    e) Go to wipe data/Factory reset >> click yes
    f) Wipe cache partition >> Click yes
    g) Go to Install Zip from SD card >> select the TheMythICS_Lite.zip file >> Click yes
    h) When it shows install from Sdcard complete >> goto main menu and restart the phone.

    When you boot it first time it may take 5-10 minutes. So be patient.

    Thats it.. You have ICS on Galaxy Ace S5830 now., Enjoy

    in my phone without any problems.

    Thank you for this amazing Site.

      i have the same problem :( its frozen to opening screen.cant go reset to factory settings :( please help!!!! i also tried the odin software to install the previous update but nothings happens :(

        Remove the battery and reload it. Go to recovery mode by pressing menu button and power button. If you can go there remove the cache and power off. Now try to load the firmware through ODIN through download mode.( Press Volume down+menu+ poer button simultaniously) It will work. Do not panic and do it calmly.

    dont do this its not installing at all after following all the instructions

    This is not working as I get the same error as above. I cant mount some directories. Is the update trying to access
    any folders those have no read/write permissions?

    Though I can go into recovery mode successfully and give the update from there. I get an error like above..

    Hope for the fix asap since I am not able to use my phone nor can I update back to 2.3.5

    :(

    Hi…

    I can find the file in my sd card and when I give update from sd card it throws an error stating..

    unable to mount

    Is it trying to access some folders that have no read permissions???

    I have rooted my phone and have installed Clockworkmod ROM Manager as well and have installed that custom rom

    Hope you can get back asap as my phone stopped working… I am using a temporary phone till now… :(

    Regards,
    Ananth

        Does this work on Ace running cyanogen roms?

        i have android 2.3.7 running CyanogenMod 7.1. Its obviously rooted with DDKQ6. however, i have very little phone memory available. will that create a problem?

      you need to be on a rooted firmware! it is very unfortunate that despite mentioning the instructions carefully you missed it! you can root your device by updating the corresponding firmware, details are mentioned in the link,

    Hey,

    i’ve got a couple of questions.
    1: I rooted my phone on the firmware 2.3.4 ddkq6. Is Clock Work Mod Recovery than automaticly installed on my phone or should i do that by myself. If so, HOW?
    2: I recovery mode I do not have the option “install zip from sd card” or “clear cache”. Instead of that I have “apply sdcard update.zip” and “wipe cache partion”. Is that a problem?

    Thanks a lot for this article!!!!!

    • Reply Pradeep Neela January 5, 2012 at 9:43 am

      dont use cwm for ace,
      no that’s not an issue! you can choose the option but for that you need to rename the zip file to “update.zip”

    • Reply Deepak January 11, 2012 at 2:26 pm

      helo marteen, the clockworkrecoverymod(CWM) may or maynot be installed in ur phone. To check if its installed, open the recovery mode. In the title of tat screen, if its mentioned CWM then u can ensure tat it has been installed. In ur case, it has not been installed since you have clearly mentioned that u r only getting “apply sdcard update.zip” and “wipe cache partion” option. To enter the recovery mod, hold the power button + home key til u see the recovery screen.
      It ‘ll be very good for you to install CWM as you can flash kernels, ROMs, modems etc with ease. (in short a requisite for every FONE :P)
      Hope you are satisfied…Cheero!!

      • Reply Maarten January 12, 2012 at 1:14 am

        so I can install it without having clockworkrecoverymod on my phone. Just from the normal recovery mode?

        • Pradeep Neela January 12, 2012 at 11:25 am

          you can install from both the ways!

        • S Thiruvengadam May 6, 2012 at 10:40 am

          Please download DDKQ6 through Android Advices. Bring your phone to ‘download’mode ( press volumedown+menu+power button simultaniously. Connect your phone thru USB Cable and update through ODIN. Before doing it remove cache, dalvic cache and factory reset. You can search’Ándroid Advices’ for guidance for updating.
