    Hi. I rooted my galaxy ace gingerbread 2.3.6 then installed cynaogenmod 7.1 had no problems and new rom is working ok. There are lots of things I prefer on the stock rom so for me cyanogen is just not wat I want. My system is now 2.3.7 which sounds great. But cyanogen has only 2 issue I have came across bad which is video Camera problem. And wifi issue. I know I can find fixes for this but I just want my old stock rom back. I do not have access to any form of pc and here lies my problem. All I can find is the ODIN WAY to installed a stock rom. I have found a single thread which stated I just need to find a stock rom download to SD card clear factory data and install new rom from zip. That is just wat I want to do but I can't find a 2.3.6 Gingerbread zip anywhere. Please help and I have cwm which I needed to install cyanogen so can that be used as before to install a stock rom. Please help with strait forward. Advice. I DO NOT HAVE ANY FORM OF PC ACCESS. So the Odin way I cannot do. THANKS FOR ANY HELP

    It can be difficult even if you have a pc lol. While you are waiting for a stock rom, you could install ICS Stock v2 (ICSStock : A GB 2.3.6 based stock rom themed to look like Ice Cream Sandwich along with some of the features from Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich.

    Would that fix my wifi and camera functions. Also is it installed same as cyanogen. Factory reset reboot then install from zip. Could you post zip download. Quite hard trying navigate pages. I'm also new to all this. This was the first phone I rooted and installed a rom on. Kinda wish I didn't only wanted to install flash lol. Thanks for help really appreciated

    The camera works, I didn't try wifi. Can't remember but you might need to install recovery-clockwork-. I had to use that for either cyanogen or ICS Stock

    If you need it, google
    The first result is a direct download link.

    Good Luck. I'm having trouble with Odin btw, might have to install ICS Stock again lol

    Yeah I have cwm anyway which says I need. Then it says I need gingerbread firmware stock if not install with Odin. Now confused as I did have gingerbread before I changed to cyanogenmod. So do I need to install gingerbread anyway or will it just install off cyanogen. Bloody confused lol

    Since you don't have access to a pc, you can't use Kies (the Ace doesn't support upgrading with Kies on your phone).

    You're welcome. If you like the Swype keyboard, I'm pretty sure it's free on the Market.
    I don't know if Gingerbread is available as a zip file, so far I've only seen the type of file that Odin uses.

    Yeah I know it doesn't except kies via ace only I just wondererd if I can use kies with the ics stock Rom if I could get a pc to use. Kies seems alot simplier than using Odin if im borrowing someones laptop quickly?
