Presenting users of stock roms and stock-based custom roms for S5830(Galaxy ACE),

PSN>> kernel


1: Compiled from Battery Extender 1.5.1 sources. (thanks to LibiSC)
2: Memory Mod applied (thanks to
3: Swap enabled
4: Optional OC suport (max 960MHz)
5: Default ondemand CPU governor
6: Default deadline I/O scheduler
7: Kernel has inbuilt support for ext3, ext4, cifs filesystems (no kernel modules needed for these)
8: SU binary and apk updated to v3.1.1
9: a2sd suport completely removed from kernel to avoid any interference with memory mod
10: Rest same as in Battery Extender 1.5.1 kernel

11: Also available nims kernel with memory-mod applied & noswap/swap/swapall versions, OC supported. (thanks to nims11)

REGARDING publishing sources of these kernels: it is completely same as the sources posted by LibiSC BatteryExtender 1.5.1 & nims stock OC kernel on github; I haven't made any changes in it whatsoever.

1: sdext has to be formatted in ext4 only
2: Do not install a2sd or link2sd...or even any other init.d script for memory extension like armurulz script. You will fall into problems.!
3: The original data on internal /data is not moved onto the memory card partition mounted as /data.
4. The memory card sd-ext partition will be used unless phone is switched off and will not be unmounted during USB MASS Storage(only the fat32 partition will be unmounted; ie normal mass storage works perfectly).. BUT, you can physically remove your memory card (safely) only when phone is switched OFF.
5. When installing apps via apk or google play, they will be moved to sdcard by default(native android app2sd)... you need to move all apps to internal storage in
settings>appications>manage applications>on sd card.

Q.) What is this MEMORY MOD ??

Users of fast scards (class 6 or above) can utilise their second sdcard partition (sd-ext) as phone's internal storage (/data) without any link2sd/a2sd/other init.d scripts.

If your sdext partition is 1GB wide, your phones internal memory (/data) will be 1GB wide.. tension free installation & use of apps.

How does it Work:

Scenario 1:
I switch on the Phone, without a MicroSD slotted in or with a microSD with a single FAT32 partition (broken or damaged microSD also suite this scenario...); GingerBread boots as usual!
No Difference!
Pure stock rom flashed via odin(rfs) or stock-based custom roms(ext4) supported.

Scenario 2:
I switch on The Phone with a microSD slotted in (with the second partition formatted as EXT4 filesystem but still EMPTY); Ginger boots acting as if


is completely moved outside to microSD but just WIPED (not true obviously, and the original /data is safe inside the phone), so it resettle it from beginning...

Scenario 3:
I switch on the Phone with the second partition of the microsd (EXT4) up and running (already resettled up for use and with my userdata on it); Ginger simply boots with sdext as /data on microSD with your userdata there and tons of apps just installed from the market...

Q.) What is new about the Swap and SwapALL version??

Swap Version: Third partition memory card (if found) created using CWM/MiniTool Partition Wizard/Gparted is automatically used for swaping. No swappiness defined in this version, it takes the default value, no problems at all.

SwapALL Version:
1: A swapfile of 120MB is created for use with highest priority swapping on /dev/block/stl13 (original internal data partition mounted as /data-swap) so as to fully take advantage of fast internal data partition and relieving read/write load on memory card.
2: The third swap partition on memory card created using CWM or MiniTool or Gparted (/dev/block/mmcblk0p3) IF FOUND is used as swap space with lower priority. So it will be used for swapping only when the swapfile on internal data partition is full.

Swappiness set at 40

1: Highly recomended for use on fresh installation so that 120MB of free space is available at internal /data partition for swapfile.
2: This verson will take approx 5-10 seconds more to boot becuse of swapfile creation on boot ! Later on its quite fast !!!!


BatteryExtender 1.5.1 NON-OC VERSIONS:- (max 800MHz)

BatteryExtender 1.5.1 OC VERSIONS:- (max 960Mhz, suit urself lol. But 800MHz will be set at boot & requires No-Frills CPU Control to set OC frequency as per ur phone's stability)

No-swap (swap needs to be enabled manually using swapper 2)

Swap (/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 as swap automatically; default swappiness)

SwapAll (/data-swap/swapfile & /dev/block/mmcblk0p3 as swap automatically with priorities)

Nims OC-Capable Stock kernel[15/08/12] with memory-mod:-

1: Superuser.apk updated to v3.1.3 in this modded kernel (thanks to ChainsDD); Superuser v3.2 (RC2) does not work, FC's ! (maybe no GB support)
2: Updated busybox to v1.20 (this was the latest version i had)
3: It has all bugs present in nims original kernel, like, no bootanimations.

No-swap (swap needs to be enabled manually using swapper 2) [UPLOADED CORRECTED KERNEL]

Swap (/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 as swap automatically; default swappiness) [UPLOADED CORRECTED KERNEL]

SwapAll (/data-swap/swapfile & /dev/block/mmcblk0p3 as swap automatically with priorities)

It is highly recommended to restore the backup rather than installing the ROM because the phone.apk Fcs in the ROM and works great in the backup.

[Tutorial]How To Root and Unroot Samsung Galaxy Ace official Gingerbread 2.3 updgrade

If you’ve upgraded your Ace’s firmware to the official gingerbread update you might know that SuperOneClick rooting method doesn’t work anymore. Luckily there is another method involving installing a zip file from recovery which I’m going to explain now. This method is actually better since you don’t have to connect the ace to a computer. You can root and unroot on the fly. So in this tutorial I’ll be showing you how to root AND unroot you Samsung galaxy ace!
Caution: In my experience nothing has ever gone wrong with rooting. There is always that slight chance something can mess up. Use caution and only do this if you want to. I am not responsible if anything happens (but I really don’t think anything will happen if you do everything right) Also rooting voids your warranty but don’t worry, unrooting should give it back like nothing ever happened.!!
Download the two zip files I’ve attached below

How to Root the Galaxy Ace 2.3

1. Copy the file (download below) into your sd card. You can even put it in a folder if you want.

2. Turn your phone off

3. Boot your phone into recovery mode. To do that, hold HOME+POWER buttons. When the screen turns on and you see the Samsung logo, let go of POWER but keep holding HOME. After the Galaxy Ace logo shows up and disappears, you should enter recovery mode. You can let go of HOME now.

4. Now in recovery mode, you can scroll up and down using the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons and select using the HOME button.

5. Scroll to the second option “apply update from sdcard” and press HOME to select.

6. Scroll to the file and select it (if you put it in a folder, find and open that folder and then select

7. After it’s done installing, select “reboot system now” and wait for the phone to reboot

8. To check if your phone is rooted, go to you app drawer and look for an app called superuser with an icon of a pirate android with cross bones. If you see it, your phone is rooted.

Congrats! You’ve officially rooted you galaxy ace!!
Now what if you want to go back to unrooted for some reason , or just for the heck of it?? It’s easy. Very similar to rooting

How to Un-root the Ace 2.3:

1. Download (below) and put in sd card

2. Turn off the phone and boot into recovery (refer to step 3 above)

3. Install the (similar to step 5 and 6 above)

4. Restart phone (incase you’re THAT stupid, refer to step 7 above)

5. Look in the app drawer and if all went well, the superuser icon should no longer be there!!!

Note: I've tested the and it works for me. But just incase it still doesn't work you can use a root explorer and delete some files to unroot:-

-Open up market and download "ES File Explorer" (or if you have any other root explorer you can use that).
-Open ES files explorer, tap menu, go to settings, go to the "Root settings" section and enable "Root Explorer" and "Mount file system" (you have to be rooted to do this)
-go back and tap Favorites in the top left corner and select "/". Now go to system/app/ and find and delete "Superuser.apk". PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!! dont delete anything other than the files I mention.
-go back to system/ and open the "xbin" folder and delete the following files and ONLY THESE FILES!!!:
1. busybox
2. sh
3. sqlite3
4. su
5. su-v1
6. su-v2
7. su-v3
-restart phone

Your ace is now un-rooted! It’s that simple. Hope I’ve helped! I’m not sure this method works for froyo, but there are plenty of tutorials for rooting froyo ace as well.

Note: the root and unroot zip files are not mine. Got them from some nice people on the internet and then renamed them!

Thanks to the people who made these zips!!
