I was looking for this too but nothing found either, I tried z4root which just freezes up shortly after hitting the button.

I have the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830, with a white back (if that matters) and am fairly new to Android.

I'm wondering a little what rooting actually does, so far I understand you can make back ups or change a ROM, or remove apps you really don't want but are 'stuck' on your phone. But there is no clear explanation anywhere. Like, for example, is it possible to put a HTC Sense interface on the Samsung Galaxy device? (because I like the dockbar with screen indicator and widgets a lot more)

I find a ton of video's and instructions on how to root, but none of them clearly explain what to do after it or what the advantages are.

Also, is it possible to brick your phone with this rooting? Or can we do a full factory reset or restore a factory default image to the phone?

Hoping for an answer on both questions.

Default does not function

with SOC 1.6.5 or the new 1.7 you can add super user but it does not function. the root test fails to bring up the su allow prompt. i used root explorer as well, no su prompt and the app did not have root access.

This phone costs ~70€ less if I purchase it in Vodafone store. However, to use my sim card I need to unlock the phone. I am afraid of purchasing Galaxy ACE and then I won't be able to unlock it. Does rooting the phone unlock the network?

after rooting the phone with SOC ver1.7, you need to install a free app from the Market called "Move2Sd Enabler".

after installation and when you run this enabler, it allows you to select the location(phone OR card memory) of your future downloads. note that it is recommended that root apps and widgets go into the phone memory.

also, after rooting your phone, you can download "App 2 SD" in which it graphically shows you where your downloaded apps are, including those that can be moved to card and vice versa...

u can use soc 1.7 to root ur phone... i ve attached it with the post... just open the app... then connect the phone and click root... wait for some time till popup of root complete comes... nd do not do the additional tests which popups... as initially ace doesn't grant the required superuser access... nd do not forget to REBOOT phone for changes to take place...

Hi! I've finally made up my mind to root my galaxy Ace. Just a few questions, does rooting my device mean I have to reinstall all the applications and put all the files currently in my SD Card and phone memory?

After successful rooting, what happens next? And if the rooting isn't successful, could I totally not use my phone anymore?

After rooting my device, could I still get any legitimate updates from Samsung?

Thanks!

meisala, there is no need to install your's apps again after root. They will remain intact.

How about the build number? I've seen people with the build number DXKA9 successfully rooting. But I have DXKCI. What does this mean? Can I still successfully root?

Default Samsung Galaxy ace awesome after rooting.

Hi friends,

I was looking on rooting Samsung Galaxy Ace and found this thread. I just want to share my experience. I rooted my SGAce few days back and its awesome. My phones speed is increased. My phone memory is 65MB free and I have heavy apps like GoLauncher, GoLocker, SMS Pro and many more

Since I am a Linux user I didn't use any software such as SingleClick or something as they are not available for Linux.
Here is what I suggest to all ACE users.

1. Root your device
For rooting device follow this tutorial: Universal Gingerbread Root & Unroot 2.3.3 -> 2.3.7+
2. Install CWM recovery
Installing CWM is easy you just have to copy CWM zip to mem card and reboot in recovery mode and select the zip.
3. Partition your memory card and give around 256-512 MBs to android for app installation.
Reboot in CWM recovery mode, partition your memory card (take backup before partitioning)
4. Install Link2SD and link all the big apps to Memory card. enjoy

I am attaching some important zip that you guys might need in order to do everything.
recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.6-galaxyace.zip
universal_gb_root_v25.zip
universal_gb_unroot_v9.zip

You might not need the Unroot zip, but in case if anything goes south, you can simply unroot your phone and get your warranty back
