How to Unbrick/Flash Official Firmware on Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830i Using Odin


Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830i is one of the most popular and best-selling low-end Android smartphones with nice features. The phone was released with Android 2.2 (Froyo) and was later upgraded to version 2.3.6 Gingerbread. Modest specs of the this handset make it unqualified to be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean but there are qualified and skilled developers out there who have successfully, but not buglessly, developed custom ROMs and mods to give you some ICS and JB flavor.

If you have recently tried a custom ROM and now want to go back to original Gingerbread ROM, you can install it manually. Sometimes the device does not start properly because it is caught in a bootloop and you can only see the Samsung logo with your device name. In such a situation, installing the official ROM is the best solution.

    after this insert battery and Press one by one (Volume up + Home Button + switch off Key)
    Now you inter into boot menu in this method your touch will not work, use up and down key of volume.
    Now, go down by volume down key choose 3rd option (wipe data/factory reset) press home key then you will see yes option go and press yes by home key. Next
    choose option 4th (wipe cache partition) press home key then press yes option 
    Now, your mobile will unlock by this method.

    is there any way i can use the pc to install root, CWM, and a custom rom?

  • pk.essb

    yes but the problem is i dnt have cwm

  • TGo to advanced settings in CWM and try mounting the external SD. Sometimes, CWM does not show the EXT SD as a external drive. Just try to browse all possible sd memory slots and notice if you are able to see the files on external sd.

  • pk.essb

    please my sdcard is not working from the samsung recovery mod(volume up+home+power buttom) but it works properly on phone and I want to root it but whenever I go to “apply from sdcard” it says couldnt mount sdcard E: failed…….I tried formatting and even changing sdcards but still the same reply so I then flashed the firmware and it is still giving me the same problem………can you help me fix this??…and if not how do i root my phone with this problem

  • Wibisono Tan

    thanks bro..

  • Yes, you can. But for that use Odin 1.85.

  • Wibisono Tan

    can i flash the phone that had formated system with single file?

  • There ir no difference as such but multifiles with PIT help unbrick the device too. They are also used when coming to stock firmware from a custom ROM.

  • Wibisono Tan

    what is the different of single 7 multi file?

  • Amit KC

    hahaha same here

  • SIM doesn’t work because you have lost the phone’s IMEI number. You must have flashED a custom ROM without backing up EFS:

    sir im having a really big frustrating problem samsung galaxy ace gt 5830i wont read my SMART from PH.please help network is out of service and disconnected i got full signal..

  • jeremy

    Thank you so much for the information provided. Good Job.

  • elias

    thx it worked ,it’s because im using internet download manager. with explorer it worked

  • Try with another web browser. The ZIPs are not being downloaded properly so you are getting this error. Try with Firefox. I often have such issues with Chrome.

  • elias

    fuck i downloaded many firmwares and when i extract it it say file is broken plz help asap

  • I am not 100% sure but it might help. The best solution is to restore EFS. Since you have not backed it up, you might get into problem.

  • I have lost my IMEI no. after flashing a custom rom(Jelly Bean 4.1) so I’m getting mobile network problem and the headphones also don’t work . Will it be solved if I flash it by official firmware?
