Cry Samsung Galaxy Ace - Clockwork mod 4 installation problem Help :(

I have a samsung galaxy ace 2.3.6 (the original firmware from samsung), it is rooted. And I want to install a custom ROM, so I need to install Clockwork mod first. So I installed clockwork mod 4, and after installing it, when I was already rebooting it, It gets stucked at the start up screen showing my phone model.

I do not know what went wrong, i followed the steps mentioned in the threads i found:

1. Download the file, ClockWorkModAce.zip

2. Copy the downloaded file, ClockWorkModAce, to (the root-directory of) your sd-card.

3. Power off your phone (using power button).

4. Boot up your galaxy ace to recovery mode (Press Home + Power Button).

5. Select Update Zip From SD-Card option.

6. Choose the file (named : ClockWorkModAce.zip) you downloaded earlier. (Note :- Use Home button to select).

7. After it finishes installing the zip file, reboot your device.


--now after installing it, I cant open my phone anymore. (((( PLEASE HELP!!! i dont know what to do, im screwed.

Again go to recovery mode. You will now go to clockwork mode recovery. From there, wipe cache and reboot. Then it will work.

Unhappy Unfortunately, I cant.

So I have installed cwm 4, using "apply update from sdcard" and it said it was successful. So after that, I rebooted my system, and got stucked at the screen where it shows my phone model "Samsung Galaxy Ace....". I tried to wait, but nothing happens. I also tried switching my phone off, but I cant, so i removed my battery and tried to open it again, but im still stucked at the screen I was referring to. For how many times i tried it again, and I also tried going to the cwm. But unfortunately, I cant because when i do the (powerbutton + home button), the default recovery shows up, and the message bellow is "E:failed to mount /system (invalid argument)". Which i did not encounter before.. help please.
My father gave me this, I know he will be very upset if he sees this.. please

I have a solution. Get a firmware through sammobile.com and flash it with odin. You can get tutorials of how to do it in google. Just search "how to flash a firmware with odin samsung galaxy ace" All the best!

Im currently trying odin, I also saw this odin flashing from other threads, but odin cant detect my phone they said that in recovery mode (but i dont have cwm so im using only the stock recovery), i should connect my device via usb and wait for odin to detect my phone. but odin cant detect my phone, why?

is it because of the "E: failed to mount /system (invalid argument)" thing that im encountering??

I really need help from experts like you guys, please.

ok another update ) sorry if im annoying, I just need help.

so, I saw from posts that in order to get to download mode, i need to: Press vol down + home + power button (which did not work for me) BUT, i saw in another blog, an alternative way, by plugging in the phone(while turned off), and when the charging screen appears, I need to press vol up and vol down with the power button, all at the same time. and when the screen goes black, i need to remove my finger from the power button. AND IT WORKED! now im in download mode! but odin cant detect my phone still.. what to do please.

Wait, maybe the reason why I Odin cant detect my Ace is that because I still dont have cwm? Is it fine to use/flash using Odin even though I dont have a custom recovery?

S5830i is different. So CWM won't work. Are you in 2.3.6? You can get the original firmware from http://www.sammobile.com/firmware/?page=3&t=1&o=1&m=GT-S5830i&r=2#regiona or you can change your region. And use this odin and .ops only: http://www.mediafire.com/?lga31u288f6nvu2

You need to have an account in sammobile.com and if you are in download mode, odin should surely detect your phone no matter what! Cheers.

So that's where I screwed up, i installed cwm. I thought its the same because it the titles of the blog/forum they're talking about galaxy ace. I didnt know its not compatible.. and so, installing cwm bricked my phone?

yes im in 2.3.6, but how will i know what is my original firmware? they have different PDA and CSC. All i know is that my Ace is from Singapore with 2.3.6.


I am already tying Odin, and i downloaded 1 firmware from sammobile - S5830IDXLB1_S5830IOLBLB1_XSP (this one), but when I load the one package file, (S5830iDXLB1_S5830iOLBLB1_S5830iDXLB1_HOME.tar.md5 ) the odin stops and closes. what's wrong? And I am also using cooper_v01.ops.

And Odin 4.38 cant really detect my phone. but when i tried other odins if they will recognize my phone, Odin 1.85 recognized it without a minute!

Thanks for your efforts in helping me.

FOR THE TWO OF YOU, (esp. you galaxyace152) I AM VERY THANKFUL FOR YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT! you gave me courage to continue doing and trying to fix my bricked samsung galaxy ace gt-s5830i!!!!

But let me tell you how this bricked phone of mine came back to life!!!! (esp. for all of the newbies out there like me who stupidly installed cwm which is incompatible to s5830i)


I searched for many forums, and searched google for solutions. I saw one-click unbrick, I also thought that maybe I just flashed a broken version of cwm, so i tried finding other cwm to flash! but I failed. So, I also came across with Odin multidownloader. And many posts, blogs, websites, forums etc said that GT-s5830i SHOULD use odin 4.38. BUT, like the problem i said in this thread, i CANT make my odin 4.38 detect my phone. and i also saw some users who cant do it, too.

But luckily, I saw this person in xda with username "ickyyy", who posted a thread showing how to root, unroot and flash gt-s5830i via Odin 1.85!!!!! Odin 1.85 (which detects my phone INSTANTLY!!! ) ickyyy said that if the firmware is a one-file(maybe same as one-package), it should be loaded at the PDA part. So, i downloaded stock firmwares from the sammobile like what the great galaxyace152 said but with my despair, it failed. odin 4.38 stops working and closes whenever i load the one package file. while in using odin 1.85, i still failed installing the firmware. it does start the installation but then, fails. But I still read ickyyy's post, and saw the one that fixed my phone he attached a file named PDA.tar, and i flashed it in odin 1.85, AND IT RESURRECTED MY GALAXY ACE GT-S5830i!!!!! WUHOOOOOO!!!

So for fellow s5830i users out there who encountered same problem as i did, hope this helps. And this is the link to the post i am referring to(Root,Unroot,CWM,and how to Flash Galaxy Ace S5830i - xda-developers) ickyyy also posted a cwm 5.0.2.6 for s5830i, though you need to keep the zip file in sdcard forever cause everytime you reboot to recovery mode you need to install it in order to use it.

too bad i do not know how to use xda forum (I cant post anything because i need to have 10 thanks first??? ), I cant thank ickyyy. I wish he sees this, Thanks ickyyy!


Cheers!

now there are few things i'd like to ask you
1. can you connect your recovered phone to kies?
2. what's your current baseband ver, kernel ver, and build number of your phone?

Its a 2 months old thread you have revived here mate.
You can always connect to Kies as long as you are running stock firmware and unrooted, root might cause slight problems in upgrading through Kies but all else works fine with root.

PM him for your question, its unlikely that you'll get a reply here.

1. What do you mean by recovered phone? After flashing the PDA? Yes I can connect it to kies. Kies can still detect my phone.
2. baseband is S5830iDXLB1, kernel is 2.6.35.7dpi@DELL150 #1, build number is GINGERBREAD.XXLA2
