    I recently bought a samsung galaxy ace and updated it through kies to android 2.3.4
    but i am not that happy with it as some games like doodle jump and sims 3 don't work very well now
    so i wanted to ask if there is any way to degrade it back to android 2.2
    also is it a good idea to root a samsung galaxy ace

    Please explain what you mean by not work well??
    Its actually better performance for me.. but i think what you mean is you cant open as much applications as you did before and run them at once.. thats coz Gingerbread uses a little more RAM than Froyo
    Please reconsider before downgrading.. soon new apps will be only 2.3.4 compatible plus you will miss 640x480 video recording

    And for degrading if you want it.. Google it!

    And root access basically means like Administrator access on Windows.. so if you are smart enough to do Linux tricks.. and customize your phone yeh sure.. But do know it does not speed up you phone in any way (unless you cistomize the ROM or something) :D

    Yep i have coz i love messing around with an OS. its really not a big deal. Even you can gain Root access. Think about it like this.. If you use a windows user account as a guest.. you can use it perfectly right? but you just cant do certain stuff like edit system files coz thats only for Admins
    Well Android comes by default with you as a Guest user (or more like a Power User coz u can change certain things) not Admin.. So Root = Admin :)
