How to do it:
Step 1) Turn OFF your mobile and go to Download Mode by pressing and holding the Volume Down + Home Buttons together for few seconds followed by Power button until you see Android logo, then volume up.
Step 2) Now open ODIN on your PC and connect your Galaxy Ace Plus S7500 to your computer.
Step 3) Once your phone is successfully connected to your PC, the ID:COM box on ODIN will turn yellow and will show the COM port number.
Step 4) unzip the downlowded file. u will get a Home.tar file.
Step 5) click on pda (in odin) and choose the file "Home.tar"
Step 6) check "Auto Reboot" and "F. Reset Time" options and make sure that "Re-Partition" is unchecked
Step 7) Click on Start button in ODIN window to start the installation process. The process will take few minutes to complete.
DO NOT UNPLUG USB CABLE WHILE EXECUTING THE PROCESS, YOU MAY BRICK YOUR PHONE!
Step 8) When the installation is completed, you read a green "PASS". your phone will restart (first boot will take a longer time so don't panic) :good:
Note: If you have a corrupted partition table (Odin says: "there is no pit partition" or "Re-Partition operation failed"), flash pit file (attached) (put it in pit window) with your firmware, in this case "Re-Partition" must be marked.
Note 1: if you want to reset your binary counter, use triangle away before unrooting. get the app from here
It is recommended to make hard reset after flashing to have a fresh official firmware
