Android: How to flash a Custom ROM (GingerReal 1.4.0) to Samsung Galaxy Ace

Posted: December 3, 2011 in Android

I’ve never have a chance to write a step by step guide about how I flashed my Galaxy Ace before, but since I have it back with stock ROM 2.3.4 (GingerBread) which is slower (compared to the custom ROM I used before), I thought I’ll flash it again with custom ROM while write little guide about that ^^

First, I’ll use GingerReal 1.4.0 ROM for this (been using it since 1.1.0 – it is good and faster than stock ROM)

Note :
1. You have to flash KPH or KPO (or any GingerBread) stock ROM first – use Odin for this.
2. Home button, is the Middle Galaxy Ace button

Edit:
I just downgrade to GingerReal 1.3.0, the GR 1.4.0 reboot when installing some of my fav apps.

1. Download ClockWorkMod Recovery 4.0.0.9 for Galaxy Ace

2. Choose one from the link above, I use this one

3. Copy ClockWorkMod Recovery (file:ClockWorkModAce.zip)
and GingerReal 1.4.0 (file: SGA-GR-1.4_GINGERBREAD.DDKQ5.zip to your MicroSD/sdcard root directory, use either bluetooth or MicroUSB cable.

4. Flash ClockWorkMod Recovery via Galaxy Ace Recovery Mode.
a. When Galaxy Ace is off, Press and Hold Home button while pressing Power button, this will bring Galaxy Ace to Recovery Mode
b. Choose “apply update from sdcard”, press Home button
c. Scroll with Volume Down or Up; choose ClockWorkModAce.zip, press Home button
d. Choose “reboot system now”, press Home button

5. Flash GingerReal 1.4.0 via ClockWorkMod Recovery
a. When Galaxy Ace is off, Press and Hold Home button while pressing Power button, this will bring Galaxy Ace to Recovery Mode (ClockWorkMod Recovery Mode)
b. Choose “Install zip from sdcard”, press Home
c. Choose “choose zip from sdcard”, press Home
d. Scroll with Volume Up/Down and choose SGA-GR-1.4_GINGERBREAD.DDKQ5.zip, press Home
e. Scroll with Volume Up/Down and choose “Yes – Install SGA-GR-1.4_GINGERBREAD.DDKQ5.zip”
f. Wait until the installation is finish.
g. Press Back button once
h. Choose reboot system now, press Home

6. Now we have a new custom ROM – GingerReal 1.4.0
