    I was looking for this too but nothing found either, I tried z4root which just freezes up shortly after hitting the button.

    I have the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830, with a white back (if that matters) and am fairly new to Android.

    I'm wondering a little what rooting actually does, so far I understand you can make back ups or change a ROM, or remove apps you really don't want but are 'stuck' on your phone. But there is no clear explanation anywhere. Like, for example, is it possible to put a HTC Sense interface on the Samsung Galaxy device? (because I like the dockbar with screen indicator and widgets a lot more)

    I find a ton of video's and instructions on how to root, but none of them clearly explain what to do after it or what the advantages are.

    Also, is it possible to brick your phone with this rooting? Or can we do a full factory reset or restore a factory default image to the phone?

    Hoping for an answer on both questions.

    Rooting worked for a few folks with Ace with SOC - 1.65 ver. The info is there in xda developers forum.

    with SOC 1.6.5 or the new 1.7 you can add super user but it does not function. the root test fails to bring up the su allow prompt. i used root explorer as well, no su prompt and the app did not have root access.

    GT-S5830 can be rooted with SOC-1.7 works pretty well no issues.

    This phone costs ~70€ less if I purchase it in Vodafone store. However, to use my sim card I need to unlock the phone. I am afraid of purchasing Galaxy ACE and then I won't be able to unlock it. Does rooting the phone unlock the network?

    after rooting the phone with SOC ver1.7, you need to install a free app from the Market called "Move2Sd Enabler".

    after installation and when you run this enabler, it allows you to select the location(phone OR card memory) of your future downloads. note that it is recommended that root apps and widgets go into the phone memory.

    also, after rooting your phone, you can download "App 2 SD" in which it graphically shows you where your downloaded apps are, including those that can be moved to card and vice versa...

    but can all apps be moved ?? like some apps entirely get stored in the phone memory... ex. nfs shift which is 38 mbs in size but gets fully stored in phone memory...
