That's an i or L?
If the letter is i (S5830i). This phone has diferent hardware and isn't compatible with S5830. So you can't use ROMs developed to S5830.
If the letter is L (S5830L). This phone has same hardware than S5830. The only difference is the bands (850/1900). The L means Latinamerica.
The S5830 has bands (900/2100). Generaly from Europe.

I doesn't stand for india. It has completely different hardware. You can't use Ace ROMS on I version.

^^ What he said.

As I understand it, the "i" version has the following differences (and probably more):

- It's chipset is totally different so using S5830 firmware / roms etc WILL cause problems, probably bricking (or so it's been said many times). The non "i" has the Qualcomm MSM7227 and the "i" model uses the Broadcom BCM21553
- It's cpu is different (Armv6 @ 832mhz) vs 800mhz for the non "i".
- Contrary to common belief, it DOES have a gpu (onboard the cpu die)
- The "i" model runs bluetooth v3, not 2.1 as with the non "i" version
- Judging by the specs available on the web, it has SLIGHTLY more ram (about 5mb)
- It has updated firmware / battery life / cpu usage improvements blah blah blah


I've read many threads where S5830 owners have flashed with S5830i firmware etc and have bricked their phone right off the bat.

They're basically the same phones, but also totally different on the insides.

I'm no expert but according to system-on-a-chip.findthebest.com, the Qualcomm MSM7227 was released in 2013, so how can the 5830 have it?

First thing, this thread is 2 years old.
Second, the original s5830 does have Qualcomm while s5830i has Broadcom.

No, Qualcomm S1 MSM7227 was available from 2009 and Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 have it too. See this link,

Qualcomm MSM7227

Hope I Helped
