Here's the step by step procedure on how to upgrade the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 on the latest 2.3.4 Gingerbread S5830XXKPH firmware update. In this process we are using ODIN 4.38 version, this is the default firmware multi-downloader for Samsung Galaxy Ace android mobile phone.

Read carefully the whole instruction before proceeding, for safety and avoid bricking the phone.

But don't be afraid this is surely safe.


To begin with the process, you may first:
- back up all of your important data, contacts, messages, applications installed or stored on the phone.
the SD memory card files will not be harmed.
- use a PC that runs on windows XP or later OS. Close any programs such anti-virus etc.
- remove the SD card and SIM card to avoid issues.
- make sure that the phones battery is fully charge or at least around 40-50%.

Prepare the necessary files for flashing:

S5830XXKPHAndroid 2.3.4 Gingerbread ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Pass : ekache99

after download extract it using winrar.

([Only registered and activated users can see links])ODIN Multi Downloader v4.38 ([Only registered and activated users can see links]) ( included on the firmware package rar)


Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread S5830XXKPH firmware flashing procedure:

1. Turn your Samsung Galaxy Ace OFF, then remove SD card and SIM card.
2. Extract the previously downloaded S5830XXKPH firmware packed.

3. Run ODIN 4.38 exe downloader program.
4. On ODIN select the OPS button and load the Cooper_v1.0.ops file unto it.
Ensure that the Auto-Reboot, Protect OPS and Reset Time is checked, leave one packaged
unchecked.

Click BOOT button and then select and load:
APBOOT_S5830XXKPH_CL260130_REV03_user_low_true.tar .md5

Click PHONE button and then select and load:
MODEM_S5830XXKPH_CL260130_REV03.tar.md5

Click PDA button and then select and load:
CODE_S5830XXKPH_CL260130_REV03_user_low_true.tar.m d5

Click CSC button and then select and load:
CSC_S5830SERKPH_CL260130_REV03_user_low_true.tar.m d5

6. Turn the phone OFF then switch it to DOWNLOAD MODE by pressing Volume Down+Power+ Middle buttons together. You will then see an android robot digging with a shovel on the LCD screen display or Simple Black Screen with Downloading...

7. Connect the Samsung Galaxy Ace to PC, on ODIN a COM Port mapping will indicate and turn to color yellow if the device is already detected.

8. If all files is already loaded and the phone is properly connected,.. Hit the "START" button to begin flashing.
Wait until the whole process completes it only takes around 5 minutes to finish. A progress bar on the left side of ODIN will show you the downloading progress.

9. Once completed you will then see a word "PASS" with a blue background on ODIN. Then your Samsung Galaxy Ace will then reboot.

10. Remove the phone from PC, then confirm your newly downloaded firmware update by typing *#1234#.

Just change the default language at your own Region, then check your device of what's new comes up with your newly installed firmware update.

What exactly are you trying to do with your phone "root the phone" / " Upgrade your firmware to gingerbread 2.3.4"

If you do not know the meaning of rooting a android device i would suggest you to google up "rooting android device " and
second if you are trying to upgrade your phone's firmware please follow all the procedures from the beginning (1-10 steps).
if you are new to "upgrade " and " android" please do not try any steps as you might brick your phone.
First learn them by doing some google stuff and then try ....

yo have rooted V9C stock rom ???????? please confirm!

I had unlocked and rooted it thru the firmware uploaded by Capt. Sarthi. Unfortunately, when my tab booted for the first time after flashing firmware then was another uncompatible firmware in image folder of sd card which started upgrading automatically and then the whole tab crashed so i that to remove the battery. When i started it, nothing happens. I am not able to goto recovery, download or bootloader mode. I have tried all possible keys combinations mentioned on the net but everytime i get to see Unknown USB device in device manager with PID_0000&VID_0000. Can you help in getting it enter DFU mode.
