Hi there! Today we are going to do have a look at updating Samsung Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 to Jelly Bean 4.2.2. Updating to Jelly Bean 4.2.2 from the default Gingerbread 2.3.3 or 2.3.6 requires you to go through three steps. First you have to root Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830, then install the custom recovery Clockworkmod and then finally flashing the device with Jelly Bean 4.2.2 custom ROM. By the way, there are lot of ROM’s available and today I am doing the flashing with the help of ROM named PAC, which is really famous and used by many Ace owners.
