Hi I have a Galaxy Ace, two problems:
1) Browser crashes often when I try zooming in. Happens also with Dolphin browser.
2) How can I completely get rid of vibration when I press on the screen to get a sub-menu? Want to save battery power.

haha, another one caught by those t*ssers at CPW!! Sorry, I hate them. You don't need a protector on the ACE & it will only reduce the touchscreen action!

Default Memory problem Samsung Galaxy Ace

I have my Galaxy Ace about 2 weeks. The 3G doesn't seem to be great and everyday I get a message saying that my incoming text messages have been rejected because of lack of storage. I can't seem to find where to change the storage options to the SD card instead of internal phone memory. PLease help!

Let android manage its own memory. Task killers kill apps that are cached (not running) which means they have to reload from scratch when called on - using more CPU and Battery! Android is not like Windows. Free ram is wasted!

If your phone is not rooted, then you can go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications - and press on each app. If it can be moved to SD press the button to do so. If it cant then the button will be greyed out.

The ace has a pitifully low internal storage If you root your phone you can use apps like Link2sd which allow you to use a partition in your SD card as internal storage.

Install something like 1 tap cache cleaner too and clear the app caches to free up some space and dont forget to delete emails / SMS etc to free up more space.

By the way look at signal in settings > about phone to see how many ASU the phone has. If its a low number 0/1/2 etc the phone doesnt have a good signal for 3g. If its high 15+ then its either your carrier (some are slower than others) or maybe a faulty phone.

Hope this helps

You said that ROM manager is bad for your phone, I just installed CM7 nightly cooper and it has rom manager installed? Don't know whether to un-install it or not :/

@CherryPoppins ROM manager will brick your phone if you use it to flash a custom recovery (ie ClockWorkMod Recovery - CWM) I personally disable ROM manager using Titanium Backup as dont trust it

Default regarding lost IMEI no

Dear All,
Here I have good news for all galaxy ace GT5830i user.I was also facing a same problem like IMEI and network releted issue afte upgrading jellybalst in my samsung galaxy ace phone.I was send my mobile to local service center.They hold my mobile 6 days and then told me its impossible to get your IMEI no.Someone told me u need to spend almost 3500 rs to get IMEI no.I am totally upset.Then I tried from myself to get my IMEI no.and thank god I recover my IMEI no,network and upgrade android from 2.3 to 4.1 version.

Try to follow this simple step if u r not getting your IMEI no.
1)Boot jellyblast from bootmenu(valumeup+home+powerbutton)
i)wipe data/factory reset
ii)wipe cache partition
iii)apply update from sd card(JELLYBLASTV3.0.3_Ported_For_S5830I.zip) put down in sd card)

again apply update from sd card(kernel-201211201515-E3-boot.img) put down in sd card)

again apply update from sd card (modulos201211201515-modules) put down in sd card)

then select reboot and then check IMEI no using *#06#

I think it work 100%.for me its working very very fine.

all data is to necessary to keep in sc card as its in zip format.
update 1 by one

1)jellyblast
2)kernel-201211201515-E3-boot.img
3)modulos201211201515-modules

gd luck..if u will get result please reply me.......



before doing this activity please take your all backup......

I don't like Kies.Like a lot of propriety software it's bulky and usually buggy and slow.It doesn't do much that you cannot do yourself.It is useful for updating the official firmware/roms(Operating system).
It does install the usb drives so you can use the USB cable and use the phone as a portable data device but you can install these separately if you don't want kies on the system(I would keep it installed in your case for now).
You can just plug your phone into your computer and not use Kies to transfer files using the file manager on your computer if you untick the load automatically in Kies.

You may be able to move some programs easily to the SD card using the free Clean Master App,

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cleanmaster.mguard&hl=en_GB

but you will be limited unless you,"Root" your phone.This means unblocking the access to the,"Root" folder/system.This will void your your warranty unless you also learn to,"Unroot" and there's lots of info on this forum for that so for now stick to easy software.

Here's how I work with my phone.I'm on WinXP and Win7 and don't like their explorer-file manager and use the free 2xexplorer(Google it) as it uses two panes easily.

I plug my Galaxy Ace into my laptop and then use 2Xexplorer to copy and past what I want onto the SD card in the phone.If it's pictures I just use the thumbnail option/s so I can see what in the pictures.If you know how to copy and paste files in windows then this makes working with the phone easy and no need for bulky Kies as you just use it as a portable hard drive.

Hi there, I just need some advice here

Im on GT-S5380 with SD 16GB class 10,
dxkt4 with kernel root@dell144#1
ok here's all my apps:
Rooted phone,
Titanium backup for backup and controlling apps,
Set CPU - to set my cpu at times when playing games/standby,
Rebooter as my task killer,
Busybox + SManager for Ram swapping,

I've used titanium backup to freezes things like software updater, google play services, and more other apps that i seldom use in thinking it would make the phone run smoother and more standby time + no other apps that consume or uses my 2g internet since it's soo slow..
I set my cpu at High 800mhz Low 480mhz and when its on standby i set it to High 480mhz Low 122mhz..
Used rebooter since it has the reboot & recovery options..
As for Ram swapping I'm not sure yet whether i've achieved that or not..

Now come the main question here..
the titanium backup thing, is it really useful when i do that?
what other consequences that may happen?
For the set cpu, i dont know whether it work or not even with SU access
As for the Ram swapping, can anyone guide me?
i use the coding type, i dont use apps swapper2 for it since i want to learn about it..
Last but not least is there anyway i can boost my 2g connection or tweak my network to go into using only 3g? Im in Malaysia, using Celcom telco.
The network provider cant help me since im using a simcard registered not with my name bcause its a present from a friend..
What was that...did i just wrote an essay? lool i didnt manage to that in my exams back then

I tried loading a "leaked" CM 10.2 on to my Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830 but it kept randomly rebooting. I reverted back to CM 7 and I can't recover all of my contacts. Also, the google play app has vanished!

Can anyone help please?

Default VIRUS?!?!

Has anyone seen this? I have a Samsung galaxy ace s5830i,is this legit or should i ignore? I got a pop up from a yehmobi.com, it says System Notification! Your Samsung galaxy ace has (13) virus! If it does not resolve in a few days virus will damage SIM-card and clear all contact. Follow the instructions below to remove all Viruses immediately.
How to remove:
Step 1: DOWNLOAD and INSTALL Mobile Security Antivirus App!
Step 2: Open the App and Remove ALL Viruses
then theres a button saying download. Need to know if this is legitimate or not or if im able to ignore it,help would really be appreciated,thanks in advance.

Never heard of anything like this, probably a scam to make people download that app. Did you by any way download some app related to that website that may be causing that notification.
Just in case you can backup your contacts, its quite easy.
