This guide is applicable only for Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830. Dont implement it on any other device or variant of the same else it may result in permanent damage to your device.

Pre-requisites:

  • Ensure that you have charged your mobile at least up to 70% so that installation process wont get interrupted due to lack of battery power.
  • It is highly recommended to keep a backup of all your important personal data such as SMS, MMS, APN, contacts etc. to the external memory since it gets vanished during installation.
  • (Important!) You must have installed Clockworkmod Recovery on your phone. Without any custom recovery installed, you cant flash this ROM.

Procedure to upgrade Samsung Galaxy Ace to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean via Cyanogenmod 10:

  • Download Cyanogenmod 10 ROM package from the link given below.
  1. cm-10-20121205-UNOFFICIAL-cooper.zip
  • Download Google Apps for CM10 (due to some licensing issue, Cyanogenmod ROM doesn’t include GApps by default).
  1. Google Apps for Jelly Bean.
  • Once you download both the files, connect your phone to the PC.
  • Select “Enable USB Storage” option on the phone to access / mount the external memory on your computer (Ensure that you’ve installed proper drivers for you phone).
  • Copy both files to the root directory of microSD card (you can also copy them to any folder you want).
  • After transferring both the files on external memory, disconnect your phone from the Computer.
  • Now switch off the device so that you can boot into the recovery mode. We’ll be using recovery for flashing the CM10 ROM.
  • While the device is switched off, press & hold Home button + Power key together to get into Clockworkmod Recovery.
  • Once you get into the CWM recovery, select “wipe data/factory reset” & then “wipe cache partition” (Caution! performing this step will erase all the data from phone memory, which includes sms/mms, contacts, reminders, APNs, call logs, apps installed in internal memory etc. therefore ensure that you’ve taken backup of all these things).
  • After wiping the data, select “install zip from sd card” followed by “choose zip from sd card“. Navigate to the ROM file (cm-10-20121205-UNOFFICIAL-cooper.zip). Select it & press on ‘Yes‘ to continue. ROM installation process will start.
  • Wait for the ROM to get installed. After ROM gets successfully installed, your phone will land in the recovery mode.
  • Again select install zip from sdcard and then choose zip from sdcard & this time browse for Google apps package file (gapps-jb-20121130-signed.zip). Press on Yes to install confirm Google Apps installation.
  • After flashing both the files, Select reboot system now to Restart the phone.

Note: Just in case if you want to revert back to your previous ROM (which you have backup earlier), enter into recovery mode (mentioned above), from the main menu, select Backupand Restore option & on next screen, select restore & choose your latest backup to restore.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully upgraded your Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean via Cyanogenmod 10. For latest & further updates, keep checking Official Development Page on XDA forums and do let us know how JB is working on your phone..
