Just follow my instructions in the above post. Once you have wiped of all data, then flash the stock rom back. Always remember Root first then install CWM. If you do it the other way, you will end up getting status 7 error. Do post the result.
Oooh okay, i did everything but rooted after cwm. Ill try that!

It worked! thank you all! (even though it rebooted once, but it hasn't happend again)
Now, what JellyBean ROM would you recommend? I just want a "fast" one. (I know there's no such thing as "best rom" or something, I'm just asking for advice)

Some ROMs say that I have to install CWM 6 or above, should I do that? or just stick with this fixed version?

All CM 10 (JellyBean) roms works quite well with CWM 5, so I suggest you stick with it unless you want to go for CM 11 (KitKat) roms. CWM 6 is mainly meant for CM 11 based roms but there is one CM 11 rom (KitKat for All) that works fine with CWM 5. I haven't tried all CM 10 roms, so I can't help you in that part. But I can provide you the list of all custom roms for Ace. You can try it yourself and be the judge Here is the link,

Know your Device:Galaxy Ace GT-S5830 ~Root~Odin~CWM~ROM LIST

Hope I Helped
