Samsung Galaxy Ace gets Gingerbread update

Tsar3000.com and Sam's Firmware have leaked a Gingerbread ROM for the Samsung Galaxy Ace. The update, which Samsung is developing is for theS5830. It was leaked to commemorate the one year anniversary of Sam's Android partnership with TSAR3000. But as always, these early beta leaks aren't perfect and users are advised they take their phones into their own hands when tasking it.

Several forum users are reporting that the update on the Ace is definitely faster, but it does have WiFi connectivity issues that need to be worked out. But most users haven't run into any problems whatsoever. And the good news is that graphics performance improves.

As always, you're likely voiding any warranty you have left by flashing your ROM. And users are advised to unroot their phones and backup their data before attempting. Some users advise also using SuperOneClick v. 1.6.5 to root before installing. And there's an informative tutorial on how to flash and root the Ace on XDA Forums. Also, one user reported bricking his phone when fiddling with the ROM manager. So following directions to the letter.

    I am fed up with my device – galaxy ace, after it got upgraded to gingerbird. it using using too much of the memory causing the device to stand still for some time, i have to kill the applications and release the memory, or in worst cases reboot to continue using it. this is my major concern and this even makes me think to shift some other phone. feature wise this is a good one….

    over all i am bit disappointed

    Its a hard Time that samsung Galaxy Ace should Update Its Touch WIZ & also samsung galaxy ace should get Android 4.0 update
    Samsung is very slow in terms of delivering update compared to its competitiors like LG & HTC
