    What do you mean by 'nothing happens'?? you are supposed to flash the kernel.
    Either by CWM or through Odin, whichever process the file you downloaded supports. Get the flashing instructions from the place you downloaded the file from.

    see if you can flash it manually through recovery. Keep a nandroid backup with you in case you have to revert back.

    Also, cf root s5830 v 3.7 b83 is not the latest version, latest is b84

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1158197
    Look in this thread, last 5 paragraphs are about b84, you need to flash b84 by recovery and then use cwm manager to flash b84 fix. Get B84 fix from here, the B84 cf root's link is dead, get it from somewhere else.

    Where did you get the file? give me the link pls

    Assuming you have ClockworkMod recovery 5.0.2.6, enter recovery menu by holding the home and power button, you will enter the recovery menu.
    Go into Mounts and Storage and mount /system and /data.
    Then click on Install zip through sd card> Select the cf-root b84 zip file.

    For the fix file, get the ext4 app mentioned in the tutorial and select flash kernel in it.
    Don't forget to make a CWM nandroid backup before.


    P.S. It will be much easier to just flash a stock based custom rom than doing all this, those are preloaded with cf-root, just get a partitioned card and install link2sd!

    I don't know where you got this link, i just hope its not corrupted or something, links without proper instruction threads seem pretty risky to me, i just hope it works for you.
    Dude you need to get the basics first, i don't think you can handle link2sd, specially if there comes any stability issues later. You don't even have CWM.
    Why did you root the phone in the first place? you can't do anything without CWM and basic root tools!

    [TUTORIAL] How to upgrade, root, flash Recovery & Custom ROM Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 - xda-developers
    Read the steps in this tut, these are the basics recovery operations that most root users use almost daily.

    Home+Power+Volume up is download mode.
    Home+Power is recovery menu. flash CWM 5.0.2.6 as stated in the tutorial. Then read the cf-root tutorial's last 5 paragraphs and then read the link2sd thread.


    If you want to skip all this, just look at the new tut i gave today, read the custom rom procedure, select a stock based custom rom from xda and flash it! If any terms confuse you, google them! you can't survive in android root world without google, you'll end up bricking your phone without basic knowledge.
    I read for 2 months before i even thought about rooting, and that was a very good decision, its been almost a year and i never had to flash stock firmware through Odin ever! My procedures and modifications never crashed on me.

    You should read more, explore xda, its full of knowledge, it will take time now, but it will serve you much better in future.

    P.S You have S5830 right? and not S5830i..??? All this is for S5830 only!!

    no bro i hav s5830i. so nw shuld i follow tut give by u?
  12. ayush29k

    Doesn't look like it, its for S5830 only.
    Its a good thing i read the previous posts again, you could have destroyed your phone with this. That's what happens when you don't read, in general when we post in this forum without mentioning our exact phone model, it by default assumed to be the original ACE S5830 only, if your phone is different you should mention it, otherwise you will get wrong replies and might damage your phone.
    All the guides i gave here are for S5830 only! You will not find S5830i written anywhere inside them, you should have noticed that bro.

    Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 - xda-developers
    Look here, there are separate threads for S5830 and S5830i. See if there is a similar method given for your model.

    For future: Always mention your exact phone model whenever you ask someone anything, and never use anything that is not made for your device. S5830 is not same as S5830i, they are very different devices.

    Thanx ayush29k for your patience - I know you were getting annoyed during this thread. I too am guilty of jumping onto this (I am also an Ace user) and thinking that I could pick up a few tricks and overcome the minimalistic internal memory issue overnight. Thank you for spelling out the requred basics.
    So many times during these threads I read things like: simply root the phone, partition the sd card, use link2sd and all will be good. Based with a little linux knowledge from a few years ago, I thought it would be simple.... How wrong was I?!!!!
    I think that your stretched patience and the need to tell akashshah "Why did you root the phone in the first place? you can't do anything without CWM and basic root tools!" certainly made me realise that one can't simply jump into this kind of thing - one really needs the absolute basics! (and a real beginer's step by step guide!)
    Thanx again

    I have no problem explaining things again and again as long as the other person is willing to make an equal effort and benefit from the work. I am no developer, i have zero linux knowledge, i just read and use things others made, but i try my best that others benefit from my experiences, and my experience tells me that even a slightest negligence can cause you to destroy your phone, this field needs a lot of patience and common sense, and above all you need to read as much as you can. I know i spent 2 months on reading before i got the courage to root my phone :p
    And fortunately enough, after switching through several roms, mods and tricks, i have never had to reinstall my stock rom through Odin, the only setbacks i got were a couple of minor bootloops.

    If you are willing to try an experimental script to solve your internal memory problem, i would suggest you install the Amarullz script. It was originally made for htc devices but the developer tried to make it work in other devices too, but it still needs work, fortunately it works for ace, although only for some people have got it working rest have reported it non-functional or unstable. It basically does all the job link2sd does but in this you don't have to set any settings and make configurations, it does everything itself. Just install it and forget it. I am using it since last 2 months, haven't had any problem since. You can try it when you flash a new rom, because if there are any problems with the script, you can simply flash the new rom again, you will have no data loss or any time loss.
    Its very easy to install i made a partition on my card, installed the script using root explorer and rebooted. Have installed more than 400mb of apps already and still have lots of space to use.

    Thanx again ayush29k

    I do not want to try the amarullz method. I would like to get into this (gently at first) from first principles and become educated as I go.

    So I have a stock standard phone straight off the shelf (probably with a few updates) and it looks like this:

    Model number: GT-S5830
    Android Version: 2.3.3
    Baseband version: S5830XWKPA
    Kernel version: 2.6.35.7perf-CL561786root@DELL128#1
    Build number: GINGERBREAD.XWKPY

    My major objective is to overcome the minimalistic internal memory issue and a secondary objective is to gain better battery performance.

    I have read about rooting the phone, flashing the ROM, partitioning the SD card and installing the software to link the apps to the sd card's "internal memory"

    Seems like there's a lot of information out there and some things work for some and not others. How would one know which ROM to select..... which kernel.... etc etc...

    So, after reading a few of the tutorials and watching youtube vids and scanning down these forums, what would be the very first thing I would do in my venture to get more "internal memory"

    Thanks in advance ayush29k!

    I'd suggest you root first, install custom recovery a.k.a ClockworkMod recovery and then just flash a custom rom. The custom rom will take care of most of the requirements for setting up the link2sd, also it will give you additional performance and features and just less bugs and glitches.
    You can either go for stock based custom roms or CyanogenMod based roms. Both have their pros and cons, depends on your requirements. Check the xda for latest roms and stuff.
    For kernel just see what everyone else recommends with the rom and just keep updating it whenever the new updates are released. It is mainly for overclocking cpu, setting governors and battery life, choose which has good reviews and has suitable features for you.

    ayush29k progress report:

    Ace is rooted as per upd_1.zip and successful - got the android + crossbones + eye patch icon! Updated superuser from market (google apps).

    Next is Clockworkmod recovery. Seems like for my Android 2.3.3, cwm 5.0.2.6 will be good. Let me know if you agree or have other advice please.

    Thanx again,

    Dave

    CWM 5.0.2.6 is perfect, although a version 6 was released but i won't recommend that just because i have not used it myself. CWM 5 is tested and proven.

    Update the Su binary also from the superuser app. There is an option for it inside the app.
  23. lambousa

    lambousa Active Member

    When you say "update the Su binary" are you saying that popping to google play and installing the superuser update is not sufficient? Is there something I need to do within the superuser app?

    Thanks!
  24. ayush29k

    ayush29k Well-Known Member

    Yes, its there in superuser app's settings menu. Update the Su binary. Updating the entire app from play store is not much useful, there aren't much differences in them, at least not from the end user's point of view. Its just used to make sure no unauthorised app gains access to the root system, you will have to approve access for any app you install to access root section of your system, and that is controlled by superuser, kind of a gatekeeper. :D

    Thanx again ayush29k, I found the update facility and watched the red turn to green! Currently running with cwm 5.0.2.6 and no problems to report! :)
