Unhappy Difference between custom and stock.
Hi all,

I'm new here on XDA-Developers, and have a question about the different types of kernels.
Here the phone can be adjusted with a stock or a custom kernel.
I would really like to know the difference between the two, so i can pick up one to root my Galaxy Ace 2.
When i bought mine Gingerbread came with it, but half year later i upgraded to Jelly Bean with Samsung Kies.
My phone became very slow 2 days later, and i'am unable to reach my gallery, cannot make photo's and Whatsapp incoming media cannot be downloaded.
However i deleted some unused apps at that time, but the worked for a day and the system memory became full again.

Could anyone help me out with this problem?

My external sd card has 32 GB of memory, 3 GB is used 29 GB unused.

Regards,

n0rt0x

Hi guys! im trying to root my ace 2 with jb stock rom installed but that .zip files doesn't work for me...
i put that update.zip, root.zip or however they are named, boot into stock recovery, choose install from external storage and no files get found.
sd card works fine and stock rom can mount it but files cannot be found...
looks like i need custom recovery for root and root for custom recovery.... -.-
