    This happened while flashing recovery, thats strange, bootloops are usually on improper rom flashes..
    So it means you are running stock rom right now with stock recovery right?
    (But there is no option of installing zip in stock recovery, just update.zip available:thinking: )

    Was the video of installing CWM5.0.2.6 from CWM4.0.0.8?

    On entering recovery, do you get CWM5(blue color) or the old stock recovery(yellow color)?
    If in CWM5 wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition and wipe dalvik cache from recovery. Reboot and see if it works. If its still stock recovery try the factory reset and cache only, you won't be able wipe dalvik in that.

    Also post the link of the video/tut and the file you used to install CWM5.
    It'd be better if you explained the whole situation in detail, your condition of phone before the procedure like rooted, custom recovery anything you did previously, the procedure you used, and the condition after procedure.

    Did u install any new app before the safe mode turned on?
    wat did u do b4 d safe mode came up?

    the procedure and zip file seems good, so its gotta be the safe mode.

    Did u try wiping cache, dalvik and factory reset??

    I wiped data and cache partition(but there was no option to wipe dalvik in 'original' recovery mode) and opened apply from sdcard and there I clicked recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.6-galaxyace-fix.zip and other was .recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.6-galaxyace-fix.zip I wondered why other file had . in front? After it said it installed CWM I rebooted my phone and it automatically went to safe mode.
    Actually I did everything what the tutorial video showed but I didnt have CM 7.2 and then I wiped cache partition and data before I noticed that. I assumed that it was CM 7.2 was already in there.

    Btw as I earlier mentioned I still can access to CWM recovery mode (not the 'original' RM) and in there install zip from sdcard-->choose zip from sdcard and there is recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.6-galaxyace-fix.zip should I apply it? or does it f*ck up my phone completely?

    Dude you are not getting me, i am telling you to wipe cache, factory reset and advanced>wipe dalvik cache right now!!! You have already told me what you did, i am telling you to do this now!!
    Reflashing cwm won't do anything, its already installed there. The problem is why you got that safe mode, it usually comes when something wrong has been done and its there to give you an option to undo it.

    OK i just watched the video now, this is a very misguiding video, during the entire 5 mins, he never installed CWM5 on his phone and it looks like the guy really hates his phone, can't press 2 buttons to reboot but is very eager to rip off the battery just to reboot the phone. In short its a bad video.
    The guy merely installed CWM4 and then flashed CM7.2 rom, that too was also an improper procedure, but it worked somehow.

    Your roms messed up now, either you discuss with me and we determine what went wrong and try to correct the problem, or you flash a new rom, either stock through odin or any custom rom you like, you already have a CWM running, so you can flash any rom you like. Your choice. Try the 3 steps i said above first and see if it boots.

    Next time pay attention to the video, it said 4.0.0.8 on recovery menu in there and he said he flashed 5.0.2.6. There almost 20 people in the comments on that link with the same problem as you.
    Usually when i click on Apply update.zip when i actually don't have a file with that name on my sd card, it says 'Installation aborted, cannot find update.zip', i don't know how you got to select the file. Selecting a zip file is done through Apply zip from sd card, in custom recovery only(CWM), not stock.

    ok I wiped dalvik cache, cache and data/factory but nothing happens, its still stuck in Galaxy Ace GT-S5830? In mounts and storage --> unmount cache, should I unmount it? Its only unmountable other are mount/format. Does it help if I connect my phone to computer via usb and delete the CWM file from memory card? I also have all my phones sd cards data in my Mac already if that helps? And I have access to download menu.

    Maybe I should read more about these things before doing them :D but I really did wondered how this can be is so simple :D

    Sorry mate, none of that will help.
    It seems u will have to flash a new rom now, u can go for any rom u lije, stock based custom roms or CM or any1 u like.
    Check out xda and get a rom for yourself.
    You can also flash a new stock rom via Odin.

    what rom u recommend? I dont know much about what Rom is best etc. and many of them seems to need CM or MIUI, which I dont have?
    sorry if my question are kinda stupid :D
    PS. is it easier to return in stock rom or to install custom rom? I'd like to do the easier one :D
     
  14. ayush29k

    Its easier to flash a custom rom from CWM.

    what do you mean 'many of them seems to need CM or MIUI', are you under an impression that you need to have CM before you can flash a CM based rom?
    Just look at xda, look at the features, its reviews and bugs and all, pick one that you like and download it. Read the instructions carefully and flash it.
    If you have any doubts, you can ask me here.

    file is adrenaline_engine_CM_4.2b.zip do I need CM to install this in my phone?
     
  19. ayush29k

    ayush29k Android Expert

    Its the best CM based rom available, i am using it now.
    Yeah sure, go ahead and flash it. I hope you previous bootloops problems don't give any bugs on this rom.
    Enter CWM, follow the procedure
    1.Data/factory reset
    2.Wipe cache partition
    3.Advanced>wipe dalvik cache
    4.Mounts and storage> format system, data and cache
    5.Install zip from sd card>select the rom file
    6. Reboot

    Note: The 9.07.12 is a barebones version of the rom, it does not have your basic sms, music, camera, calculator etc apps. You will have to add them to the system yourself. Its a light weight rom build for performance and smoothness. Either get the CM apps from xda or use substitute apps like go sms, fx camera etc from play store.

    ayush29k Android Expert

    Do you even have an ext partition on the sd card man? If not then thats the error you get when trying to format something that doesn't exist.

    What miracle link have you gotten man??,,,the miracle was this developer's old rom, you are flashing apocalypse now.

    seems like I don't, but I have my phones sd card data apps and that s*it in my Mac so can I get it from there. Miracle was in comments but i didnt downloaded it i took apocalypse

    Do I need /sd-ext to install apocalypse rom?
     
  23. ayush29k

    ayush29k Android Expert

    What??
    Just flash the rom and reinstall all your apps, if you made a backup of the apps through Titanium Backup, you can restore them.
    But you will have to manually push the system files, and first thing will be to get the missing system files from the All things Apocalypse thread in the Apps and Themes section.
