Recently back on my YouTube channel, I received a message from a fellow who needed to restock his Galaxy Ace GT-S5830 back to the default ROM in his attempt to root the device. Despite the Galaxy Ace being an ageing device and is no longer supported by Samsung I figured that many people still own this particular phone.
Now a while back I created a tutorial on rooting the Galaxy Ace and also a guide on restocking the galaxy ace, this reverts the device to stock firmware which can be very useful if you are faced with a bricked device as a result of a failed ROM installation.
This particular viewer also informed me that the link on SamMobile.com which is a popular repository for Samsung firmware contains a dead link to the Galaxy Ace firmware package. In response to this, I decided to create this updated post for anyone who may be using this ageing smartphone and needs the correct firmware.
The download links are as follows:
