Question 1: What is the current official update for the Galaxy Ace?
Saw a friend with 2.3.6 update( on his Ace), but I have no idea why I can't update mine via the software updater.
Question 2: Are there some news about the Galaxy Ace being planned for future updates? I think it could jump off to the land of Ice creams and Jelly Beans?
Question 3: Does Rooting the phone make it's warranty fall?
The Ace looks awesome by the way. Loving it to the max!
Welcome to androidforums Spliddo,
1. Official update depends on the phone you have, there are many variants of the ACE S5830, the original ace has a 2.3.6 update the other variants might not have it yet.
What exactly is your phone's model?? Check in settings>about phone
2. Samsung doesn't seems to support its older models, the probability of android 4.0+ updates is extremely slim. Although unofficially these updates are already available for the root users of original ace.
3. Yes, rooting the phone voids the warranty.
