Hi

As of now we don't have any separate section for Galaxy Ace
So I am starting this thread, so All queries/information related to device are consolidated at one place.

Root
Rooting Ace is easy. SuperOneCLick v1.6.5 can be used to root device
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803682
Tested by myself, confirmed by few others as well.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=957653

IMP - As pointed by Many : Please reboot after rooting to complete the process

Recovery/Download Mode
Recovery Mode : Home + Power Button
Download Mode : Home + Vol Dn + Power Button

Firmwares
As usual latest firmwares can be downloaded from SamFirmwares
www.samfirmware.com/WEBPROTECT-s5830.htm

UPDATE : SamFirmware has just posted a Leaked Gingerbread ROM (2.3.3) For the ACE

Please note that its a leaked ROM so may not be a daily driver for most of you and yes usual disclaimer applies here too

Peter123 has found a fix for people having problems with busybox after rooting

ROOT Busybox Fix
I've also found a fix for the people who have problems with busybox after rooting. Found out that stock firmware already contains busybox in /system/bin. And SOC1.7 adds root busybox to /system/xbin.

So the fix:
Code:
mount -o,rw,remount -t rfs /dev/stl12 /system
rm /system/bin/busybox
mount -o,ro,remount -t rfs /dev/stl12 /system

Be really careful with rooting and rooting apps, I managed to root my first Ace fine but after messing around a bit with ROM manager my phone got bricked whilst trying to back-up my firmware.

I got lucky that I managed to pull off a story that a factory reset bricked my phone in the store and got a new one.

I doubt others would get that lucky. Just giving you guys a warning and heads up.
