Hey guys,
in this tutorial I will show you how to upgrade and root your Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830. This method is the simplest way to do it.
Shall not be liable for any resulting damage to your phone! Everything you do at your own risk!
If you want to upgrade to newer version then Gingerbread I suggest you to make full procedure, not only flash recovery.
WARNING
If you don't understand what is root, ROM, phone, flash, CMD etc. watch this movie

You will need these files:
  • Brain
  • PC with Windows XP SP2 or later
  • Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830
  • USB to Micro-USB cable
  • .Net Framework 2.0 or later
  • Android Software Development Kit (SDK)
  • Samsung Kies or Samsung Android USB Drivers
  • ODIN 4.38 + OPS
  • SuperOneClick (for 2.2> firmwares) or Universal Gingerbread Root or Unroot (for 2.3< firmwares)
  • ClockworkMod Recovery 5.0.2.6 (Fixed!)
  • New firmware
  • *Optional Custom ROM

Newest firmware:
Release name: S5830DXKT7
Release date: November 2012
Country: Vietnam
CSC: S5830OLBKT3
Android Version: Gingerbread 2.3.6

DOWNLOADS
Dropbox
Google Drive

A. Preparing your PC:

  4. Right click on Computer and select Properties
  5. Select Advanced System Settings then Advanced and Click the Environment Variables button.
  6. Click on the variable called 'Path' and then click on Edit. Now add the target directory to the value of the variable, using a semi-colon as a separator.
  7. Add system path to Android SDK and Android SDK Tools folders
    x86

    C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk
    C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
    x64
    Code:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
  8. Now your PC is ready!

B. Preparing your phone (only for 2.2.x users! If you only want to root your phone, go to step D, if your phone don't have root skip this steps):
  1. Install Samsung Kies
  2. Turn on your phone
  3. Enable Debugging at Apliccations>Programming

    • If archive contains only <filename>.tar.md5 select it as PDA and OPS as OPS, leave other fields EMPTY
  5. Connect your phone via USB into PC
  6. When the screen is turned on hold POWER+VOLUME DOWN+HOME and wait until the phone enters the Download Mode
  7. If ODIN detected and recognized your phone should light up the first square to the left side
  8. Press "Start" button and wait, the process should take ~5 minutes
  9. If all goes well your phone should reboot automatically
  10. Square should change the color to blue and display "PASS" it means that flashing process was successful and we have the newest firmware
