Hello guys,

I just bought this week the new Ace 2 i8160.
It is a really great phone- I mean not the dimension ;)

Yes, after a week usage I would like to root it for use some apps like in former times. I tried to root with the old Ace methodic, but it does not works.

Do have anyone an idea, how could be root the phone?

For your answers thank you lot!

Wrong section.
I'm moving this to General Q&A Section.

Yes I know, this is an Ace 1 forum, but I can not wait for opening a new thread for Ace2... ;)

Well, I tried gingerbreak, but does not works. It runs still exploiting and nothing happens. I made all things, as in instructions described, but not works :(

I tried even yet from the rooting instructions for Galaxy W i8150, because the model number is similar (8160 for Ace2,8150 for Galaxy W) , and both phones looks similar too. :)
But it don't works :(
I got an error message "signature verification error"

Did you try superoneclick?
I'm very curious about this device, and I'm considering getting one... I find somehow strange the cpu: a dual core 800mhz is unusual. Is it possible that this cpu's clock is higher and is underclocked via software?

The Ace 2 is very new and i searched for a while in the internet
Rooting this device is not possible at the moment!!!!!!!
Even not with apps like gingerbreak or superoneclick oder z4 root they never worked like they should so you can close the thread and wait until somebody found a way to root it

I think not so...
We should here collect our experiences about rooting the Ace 2. If somebody have some news about rooting, can post that here.

The iPhone 4S is actually dual core 800Mhz..
