Essential Pre Requisites:

  • Charge your device with the minimum of 80% so as to ensure that the battery is calibrated with which you will be able to enjoy the best of the battery life.
  • It’s always better to backup all your data present in your phone because after the firmware update the data present in the device may get lost or corrupted.

Note: Don’t use KIES to backup as KIES won’t be detecting the phone after this update since it’s a custom ROM.

  • Enable the USB Debugging Mode in your Galaxy ACE S5830 from the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”. After this, you need to disable / close all the tools like Firewalls, Antivirus suites as these generally tend to interrupt the process of firmware update.

    Let’s head to the procedure to apply this custom firmware in your Samsung Galaxy ACE S5830.

    Procedure to Update Galaxy ACE S5830 with ICS Styled Myth ROM:

    • Before proceeding, you need to be on any of the Rooted firmware. Once the device is rooted, we hope that the Clock Work Mod Recovery is installed in the phone. After this, download ICS Myth Custom ROM Firmware in your computer.
    • Once you are done with the above step, it’s now time to connect the Galaxy ACE device with the compute using the USB cable and copy the ICS Myth Zip ROM in your device’s SD Card. Once you copy the same, turn off the phone and remove the connected USB Cable so as to enter the phone into the recovery mode.
    • The recovery mode in the Galaxy ACE can be entered by Holding Menu Button and then Power ON the device. If the device turns ON in the normal mode then you need to try again to enter into the recovery mode.

    • Now, in the recovery mode, you need to select “install zip from sd card” > “choose zip from sd card” and then choose the ICS Android 4.0 Zip file which is placed in the phone.
    • Once you select the file, the process of firmware update will be started and it will take up to 5 minutes to finish the update. Once the update is applied, you need to select “clear cache” from the recovery mode itself so as to clear off the cache data.
    • After the firmware update gets finished, you need to select “++++ Go Back ++++” > “reboot system now” to reboot the phone. And there you go, you have now successfully updated the Galaxy ACE S5830 with the latest firmware of Myth which is the ICS Styled Custom ROM.
