stock rom, custom rom, kernel.

STOCK ROM.

Requirements

  • Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus GT-S7500
  • A Windows PC
  • Fully charged phone or at least 70% battery left.
  • Enable USB Debugging on your phone. You can do this by heading to Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging. Make sure that there is a check mark beside that option.
  • Install the USB drivers for your phone on your computer. (The easiest way is to install Samsung KIES.)
  • Temporarily disable any antivirus software, firewalls, and Samsung KIES on your PC as they may interrupt the installation process.

Instructions

Use these instructions at your own risk. Do not hold me responsible for whatever damage occurs on your phone arising from your use of these instructions.

  1. Download the Latest firmware package for the Galaxy Ace Plus from here and odin3 from here and save it to your PC.
  2. Extract the downloaded ZIP files using any extracting software such as WinRAR or 7-Zip and place the files in a single folder. You should have files namely:(depends on firmware you have downloaded)
    • Odin3 v1.83.exe
    • S7500DDLB1_S7500ODDLB1_S7500DDLB1_HOME.tar.md5
    • SS_DL.dll
  3. On your PC, launch the Odin3 application by double-clicking on Odin3.exe.
  4. Switch off your phone completely.
  5. Boot the phone into Download Mode. You can do this by pressing and holding down the Volume Down and Home buttons while pressing the Power button until you are welcomed by a green robot indicating you are in Download Mode.
  6. Once the phone is in Download mode, connect your phone to your PC while keeping the Odin3 application running.
  7. Within a few moments, the ID:COM section in the Odin3 application will turn yellow. This indicates that the necessary drivers for your device have been successfully installed on your computer.
  8. In Odin3, click the PDA button. Browse for S7500DDLB1_S7500ODDLB1_S7500DDLB1_HOME.tar.md5 and select it.
  9. In the Option section in Odin3, make sure only Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time are checked.
  10. Hit the “Start” button in Odin3 to begin flashing the Gingerbread firmware to your phone. It may take 5-10 minutes for the installation process to finish. Your phone should automatically reboot itself.
  11. As soon as you see the Samsung splash screen, disconnect your phone from your PC.
  12. Switch off your phone completely.
  13. Reboot the phone into Recovery Mode. You can do this by holding down the Volume Up and Home buttons, then pressing down the Power button.
  14. Once inside recovery, perform a wipe:
  15. Select “wipe data/factory reset”, then select “Yes” on the screen that follows to confirm data wipe.
  16. Select “wipe cache partition”, then select “Yes” on the screen that follows to confirm wiping your phone’s cache partition.
  17. Head back to the main menu, then select “Reboot system now” to reboot your device.
Congratulations! You have successfully applied the official Android firmware on your Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus GT-S7500. :laugh:

This should be moved to galaxy ace's section :)
Ask a mod to do the needful...

Quite a lot of ace plus, (and also ace 2) users are there in g-ace section...
Ace plus, in most probability, wouldn't be getting a new forum all for itself (that's what I believe)...

You get me wrong bro...
I never said that you broke rules...I'm just saying that this would help more people in that forum...
If it was breaking any rules, I would have simply reported and moved on...and not ASK you to tell mods to relocate...

Anyways, its your thread, your wish...

Peace out...

Cant get into recovery mode + touch screen no longer works

Hi decided to start trying to root using your instructions and all was going fine up until it had finished flashing the cwm to my phone and after it had done that and it re-booted and I was presented with the unlock screen where i had to enter my pass code and as I tried to use it my touch screen didn't work so I re-booted and again it still didnt work but the power button did when I held it down it come up with aeroplane mode and power off and all that but if I press it to turn of the screen it makes it go black but my lights in the back and menu button light up and stay lit up and I cant see the screen again if I unlock it, so then I tried to continue on with the steps to see if it would fix it and I cant get it into recovery mode it just vibrate every couple of second when im holding the combination of keys down and just re-boots when I release them and I cant reflash it to stock firmware because I cant get it into recovery mode? any help would be awesome thanks in advance
