How to unbrick Samsung Galaxy Ace

If your phone doesn’t boot into download mode and you have a black screen after flashing froyo heres how you unbrick it, it worked for me :).

Step 1 – Prepare odin with the firmware u want to flash (in my case was gingerbread 2.3.3) and get it ready to go;

Step 2 – Remove battery and connect your galaxy ace to the computer;

Step 3 -- Insert battery holding Volume down + Power + Home

Step 4 – At this point Odin should have detected your SG Ace ( Yellow rectangle should appear);

Step 5 – Click Start button in Odin and wait about 5 min.

If all goes well it should come back to life. :):D

Get the roms from sammobile site.

Be sure that you download de correct firmware for your device version.

There is no solution for that. Did you try making usb test jig?

There is no solution, I know several cases where people destroyed their Ace this way.
Why do people even bother to pamper with their phones when they have no clue...

    please excuse me for my english, my native language is spanish and not write good english

    i have one question,

    are sure's, efs file is /dev/block/stl5 ??

    i have 1 idea of copy file of other Galaxy Ace and putting into to tar and flashing via ODIN.

    but i need have sure, who file is the correct.

    please help me.

    Regards.

    Go on, brick your phone.

    ODIN can't flash efs in Galaxy Ace, because there is no slot assigned to it in cooper.ops

    If you don't have a good reason/knowledge to do it, don't touch it.

    That's probably the most stupid thing to say if you want them to fix your phone -. -

    I hard bricked my phone once with rom manager, "it fries " the motherboard, so i sent it for guarantee to technical service and i told them that i was listening music and suddenly the phone turned off. The change it for a new one :)
    P.D: show yourself as a noob that only uses the phone for music and facebook
    If you say that odin thing, dude then forget inmediately any chance of guarantee repair cause flashing or do all those things that we do with our aces are not covered by guarantee, its obvious btw dont you think?
    PD: remember soft brick like bootloops etc, can be fixed flashing again.
    Hard brick like phone doesnt turn on, i mean really dead = dead motherboard or something like that
