Install Jellybean 4.2.2 Custom ROM for Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830

Samsung Galaxy Ace Custom ROM

To get the Android 4.2.2 Android version on your Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830 device, you need to install a custom ROM which seems to be the only way right now. The custom ROM available for the Galaxy Ace looks pretty neat and this is available since before the nightly release, and a lot of users have reported this ROM to be very stable and good at use.

The overclocking with this custom ROM is stable and that didn’t respond badly when the clocking was done to 979Mhz as one of the user reports. The stock CPU speed is to be set to keep the battery life better and the draining of the battery to the minimal levels. This is said to be one of the smoothest Android Jelly bean ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830 device.

    We really don’t see such problem on our device and it went successfully. Did you follow the steps and wipe the cache and Dalvik before installing the zip file? Please let us know.
