hello the community,
am in the search for a custom recovery for the above titled device as it's my work friends wifes device and the screen smashed and am trying to recover the data from it...it's screen is totally not working,it's pin locked and also no usb debugging enabled so no recovery programs will work...i found an article online which will get me access but the problem is that i need a custom recovery to get access via ADB if anyone can help that would be awesome...thanks
i have searched the forum and google for a compatible recovery but have found nothing so far

hey everyone a friend of mine here on the forum @HypoTurtle has kindly ported a recovery for this device if anyone would like to test it that would be awesome for users...the reason he originally made it was so that i could recover some files via ADB from a friends galaxy ace who's screen was broken unfortunately the device never bothered to power on so i couldn't get an opportunity to test this TWRP build...but if any of you are willing here is the link to the recovery please flash it through ODIN of course as there is no available recovery for this version of the galaxy ace and maybe this could help a few people
so please make sure you have a recovery rom or stock recovery.img to use if TWRP isn't working for you...this is a WIP and i am not even sure if this will be updated by the dev but it's worth checking out

ok guys n gals so here is the link to the TWRP...hope it works for you please post any logs if you know how if it fails or there are any problems.. @HypoTurtle only usually makes these for MTK devices so this will be a slow WIP,also make sure you have a full backup available to use if anything goes wrong....please remember you FLASH THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK...if you get bricked,get pregnant,or anything else it's not our fault

ok guys sorry to say but this thread will be closed as the developer has no time to work on this project as he does not have this device and also mainly works with MTK devices...sorry to get your hopes up...maybe in the future someone will attempt to get a working recovery for this older device
