How To Update or upgrade Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830i/ S5830 to Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean based Jellyblast Custom ROM Firmware.

These methods also work on the Samsung Galaxy S5830

I. Before You Begin:

  1. The following procedure works for Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830 smartphones.
  2. Make sure your device have at least 80% battery power.
  3. You must have ClockworkMod Recovery installed on your device.
  4. Make sure USB Debugging is enabled

II. Downloading Required Files:

Use the link from here and download the Jelly Bean update file.

Save it on your computer.

III. Install Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean ROM on Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830i:

Connect the Ace with the PC (you need the USB cord for that).

Take the downloaded file from step 1 and copy it to the phone’s SD card.

Unplug the USB cable and turn off the handset.

Enter in recovery mode.

You can manage to do that by holding and pressing the Menu and Power buttons at the same time.

One the recovery mode menu is being displayed, use it and choose the next options: “wipe data factory reset” and “wipe cache partition” (remember to backup the data before applying this step).

Then, select “+++go back+++” and return to the main menu.

From there, select “install zip from SD card” followed by “choose zip from SD card”.

You can now select the downloaded file and flash the same on your Galaxy Ace.; we are almost done.

Wait until the process is over (a couple of minutes) and in the end select “+++go back+++” and “reboot system now”.
