Phone [Q] Problems with rooting and installing CWM5 and custom ROMS

Hey,

I am having problems while trying to root, install cwm5 and install a custom ROM to my Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830i.

PROBLEM:

First:

I rooted my phone by following this article.

It rooted in less than a second, so i had my doubts and went ahead and rooted it again, only to get the same thing... After starting my phone normally, i found this new icon Click image for larger version

Name:	SC20120618-183210.png
Views:	205
Size:	26.9 KB
ID:	1138240.

Root checker also confirmed that it was successfully rooted.

Second:

I tried to install CWM 5 from the same article. When installing, I get the following error:

Error in E://tmp/sideload/package.zip
(status 7)
Installation aborted

However, after following this article, i was able to get it to work. However, like it says in the article, i have to install the zip from SD card via standard recovery every time i have to use CWM

Third:

I did all this to try to install this custom ROM.

While using "temporary" CWM, i tried installing this, but once again, i get the exact same error:

Error in E://tmp/sideload/package.zip
(status 7)
Installation aborted

I thought it was due to a bad file, so i downaded everything again, again, and finally, once again... Nothing seems to work

I then tried to flash CWM via ROM Manager. It asks me to confirm my model, with only one option (i.e. S3850i), i tap that and it says no supported CWM available, but i know there is by looking at these articles and other tutorials

I also tried re-rooting my phone via super one click v.2.3.1.0, but it hangs at waiting for device...

DETAILS:

Galaxy Ace S5830i (GSM), bought in Dubai
My PC runs Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Please help me out here... thanks

1. The topic is for s5830 not s5830i
2. The rom is not for s5830i and there are no available roms in s5830i
