Android 4.2.2 Cyanogenmod 10.1 for Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 [Jelly Bean]

Though Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 is low end device and runs on 800 MHz single core processor, it doesn’t mean that it wont be able to run Jelly Bean on it. Even devices like HTC explorer, Galaxy Fit, Galaxy Mini which have 600 MHz processor are capable of running Jelly Bean.

The latest version of Android is Jelly Bean 4.2.2. And now its available for Samsung Galaxy Ace. Thanks to XDA Member lagloose for bringing out the same for Galaxy Ace Smartphone. Android 4.2.2 isn’t available in its pure form i.e. AOSP but it is tweaked further & merged with Cyanogenmod sources. Now it has become Cyanogenmod 10.1.

You wont be able to use Android 4.2.2 specific feature like photosphere because it requires Gyro sensor (which is absent in Galaxy Ace). But all other things are working well. What are you waiting for then? Go, get it installed on your Galaxy Ace & Enjoy Android 4.2.2.

So, lets start with the procedure required for updating Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 to Android 4.2.2 via Cyanogenmod 10.1.

This tutorial is meant only for Samsung Galaxy Ace having model number GT-S5830. Dont try to implement it on S5830i or on any other device else it may turn in hardware failure of your device.

Pre-requisites:

  • Charge your device up to 75% battery level so that you can flash ROM without any interruption.
  • Your phone data will get lost after installation of this ROM (excluding External storage like SD card). Therefore, it is highly recommended to backup all your data from internal storage (includes contacts, messages (SMS/MMS), call logs, Internet APNs etc.).
  • Enable / Tick ‘USB Debugging’ option in your phone.
  • It is necessary to have Custom Recovery like Clockworkmod / TWRP installed in your phone for flashing CM10.1 Custom ROM.

Note: You can’t proceed to ROM installation unless you’ve CWM recovery installed in your Galaxy Ace S5830.

Procedure to Upgrade Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (via Cyanogenmod 10.1):

  • At first, download Cyanogenmod 10.1 package from the link given below.
  1. Galaxy Ace S5830 CM 10.1 Package (Update: 26-07-2013 by maclaw.pl)
  • (Optional) Also download GApps that contains Google apps like Gmail, GTalk, Play store, Google+ etc. Since Cyanogenmod doesn’t include Google apps, you need to flash it separately.
  1. GApps for Android 4.2.2 (Cyanogenmod 10.1)
  • After downloading CM10.1 ROM package & Google Apps, connect your phone to the PC. Enable mass storage mode on it to access internal storage & transfer both files on its root directory (or anywhere you want. We have mentioned ‘root directory’ because it is convenient to access).
  • Disconnect the phone from PC. Now boot into Clockworkmod recovery. For doing that, switch off the phone completely. Now press & hold Home Button + Power Key together until recovery mode shows up.
  • After getting into the recovery, make a nandroid backup of your current ROM so that the same can be restored back in case of failure. To do so, Highlight backup and restore option from the main menu of recovery, select it & then choose backup option to start the backup process.
  • Select wipe data/factory reset & subsequently wipe cache partition to wipe the data & caches respectively from the phone memory. (Caution! performing this step will erase all the data from phone (ROM memory), which includes SMS / MMS, contacts, reminders, APNs, call logs, apps etc. therefore ensure that you’ve taken backup of all these things before).
  • Now select install zip from sdcard & then on next screen select, choose zip from sdcard. It will show you all the files & folders located on internal storage of your device. Navigate to the ROM file (which you’ve copied earlier from Computer), select it using power button (unless youre using touch CWM) & confirm the installation by pressing on Yes. This should start installing the ROM.
  • Again select install zip from sdcard followed by choose zip from sdcard & this time browse for Google apps package file (gapps-jb-20130301-signed.zip). Press on Yes to install confirm Google Apps installation.
  • After you finish flashing both files, Select “reboot system now” to Restart the phone.

To restore the previous ROM, boot into the recovery mode, select Backup and Restore option & on next screen, select restore. Now choose the backup you like to restore (or restore the backup you’ve made before flashing this ROM).
