Now we have simple tutorial how to Install Official Android Gingerbread 2.3.6 XWKTM Firmware update manually on Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830. Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 recently got a Galaxy SIII like ROM. But Galaxy Ace users who are not interested in rooting their device and using Custom ROM rely over Official Firmware. It looked like Samsung has forgotten some of its Phone that is out of top notch league but they have entertained Galaxy Ace user well with the new Android 2.3.6 XWKTM Firmware. It doesn’t matter from which region or country you came from, every Galaxy ace users on the globe can install it very easily.

  1. sorry i forgotten to add some useful information:

    What Improved in this update? Touch Sensitivity becomes more fast, battery life was slightly increased, GPU Performance was increased little bit now games will runs smooth without any lagging and no more Wi-Fi disconnections.

    Warning: Before proceeding users must know that they are proceeding with installation of custom ROM, which requires root access and which voids warranty. Therefore, neither we nor the developer will hold any responsibility for any damages caused to your phone on following the ways prescribed in this article.

  3. make sure that you have done all steps correctly. when you get pass message you don't need to reboot device manually, your device will be automatically rebooted when flashing is done.

    have you selected Auto Reboot option in Odin?

  4. do i need to root my phone before the update?

    once installed the drivers then Put the device in download mode and follow the steps again.

    Help?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Guys, This is stupid. I know a simpler way that you don't have to take any risks in. Follow these Steps:

    1.First install Samsung Kies http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/usefulsoftware/KIES/JSP

    2.Get an original Samsung Connectivity Cable

    3.Turn on Your Phone

    4. On your phone go to Settings,Applications and Devolpment.

    5. Turn off USB debug

    6.Connect your Phone to the Cable.

    7.On the Notification bar a message will pop-up saying "You can copy files SD/Phone to your computer" or something like that click on that and a screen will pop up saying "Connect storage to PC" Click on the button to enable.

    8.Go on to Kies it will spend some time downloading drivers for your phone after a while it will be connected to your phone.

    9.A message will pop-up saying there is a new update available for your phone click to download latest update

    10.After the update is complete you now have ginger 2.3.6

    Enjoy!

  37. There is a issue in my screen lock screen. My screen freezes and I need to hard reset for going inside the menu/home. I have tried your procedure, and found that my issues are still the same. Can you suggest what I can do further?

  38. Also, Volume UP + HOME + POWER SWITCH activates the RAMDUMP Mode. Please help.

    And, I think it has gone to German language... :(((

    ReplyDelete
  39. have you got green message in Odin ? Next time don't enter into recovery mode. Just boot into as usual OS loading.


    @Chowla Yes Ace plus can also upgrade to Android Gingerbread 2.3.6 but it has another tutorial. Above procedure will not work on Ace Plus.

    ReplyDelete
  40. >>>There is no chance, I can go beyond the Lock screen (TOUCH NOT WORKING, However during Hard reset I have checked the LCD test and it is working fine)

    >>>Language changed to Spanish from English

    >>>After half procedure, it shows BLUE PASS and not GREEN PASS.

    >>>Recovery mode is activated by pressing SwitchOff+Home together and not VolUP+SwitchOff+Home

    >>>Last but not the least, I want to drill my phone :((( So, please help me... :) :)

    >>>P.S: Now, I hate Samsung

  102. If you don't do factory reset then old software will be still in the Phone. It will going to interfere with new installed Android OS. So chances of getting problems and bugs while using the device.

  113. Here is simple trick to avoid RAMDUMP Mode (ARM9 mode) in Galaxy Ace when you trying to get into recovery method home + Vol Up + Power = MemDump


    take off the battery once and place it again. Now press and hold home + Power buttons together. Whenever Samsung logo appears on the screen release the power button while the holding the home button. Then the device will be entered into recovery mode.

  132. Hello @Prasad have you done anything wrong at the time updating the device via Odin? Sorry to say your Galaxy Ace device is hard bricked, it will no longer work. But still there is little chance to make it work.

    1. OK turnoff the device and remove all SIM, SD card and Battery.

    2. Now press Volume Down + Home + Power buttons. By holding three buttons you need to place battery into the device. That's it you will be entered automatically into the download mode.

    3. Again follow the steps and install Fresh Android OS.



    @Siddharth may i know what kind of error occurred at the time of setup connection?

    ReplyDelete
  142. @Sharnpal you can't do like that because the above firmware update is especially designed only for Galaxy Ace S5830. In case you tried on your phone the total device will be bricked. So don't ever try to do that!

    @Ramesh in upcoming days we will provide root tutorial for Galaxy Ace.

    ReplyDelete
  156. through CWM you can restore whole Operating System, Apps, Games and other stuff. If you restore to old settings and the current new Android OS will be deleted forever. There is no way to restore if you want apps back then you want to restore whole thing.

  157. maximum time it takes to completed 5 to 10 minutes.
