Top 3 Custom ROMs for Samsung Galaxy Ace

There are tons of Custom ROM’s currently available for Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830. in this post i’m going to share the top 3 best Custom ROM i liked on my Galaxy Ace. All of the ROM’s are tested by me for weeks and I’ve used them all for so many times.

So wasting no more time lets get started:

1. Samsung Galaxy SII ROM

The Galaxy SII ROM is based on Stock DDKQ8 firmware and the ROM is super smooth without any lags. it gives you a complete stock experience with fluid performance and a stable battery life. you can check this tutorial for the Installation of this ROM and a video tutorial.

Features i Liked:

  • Stock ROM experience
  • Better Battery Life
  • Improved Performance
  • Notification Bar Toggles
  • Improved Multitasking

2. Windows Phone 8 ROM

This ROM is one of my favorite ROM. the performance of this ROM is super amazing. it gives you a complete Windows Phone OS experience on your Galaxy Ace. it comes with a WP8 launcher which is super smooth. we can customize this ROM so much by changing tile colors or by re-sizing a tile and adding widgets to the Tile Homescreen. the ROM is based on CM 7 Democracy, Battery life is so much better than   others ROM’s available. Dolphin Browser is default Browser in this ROM. you can check this tutorial for the Installation of this ROM and this Video Tutorial.

Features i Liked:

  • Complete Windows Phone 8 Experience
  • Fast and Smooth Launcher
  • Customization of Tiles
  • Nice Animations
  • Boot Animation

3. Imaginary ICS Final

This ROM is so powerful and comes with Holo Launcher Pre-installed. it gives you a ICS 4.0 like experience while on a Stock DDKQ8 firmware. this ROM is on the No.1 spot for the most powerful battery life i observed. Keeping my WiFi On for more than 18 hours the ROM was still at 38% battery level. in terms of battery performance this ROM hit the charts. other than the long battery life this ROM is also smooth and fast with Nice Multitasking. all of the pre-installed apps are so nice and it gives a reasonable amount of storage to download & Install Apps. check out this Tutorial for the Installation of ROM and Video Tutorial.

    Post a Reply
    • Well you can increase the internal memory by installing the App2SD Script but you can’t play HD games on Galaxy Ace as it doesn’t support HD games or videos etc.

    • No you don’t need to create any SD card partition.
      and Imaginary ICS ROM is based on Android 2.3.6 and CM 10.1 Pro is completely a Android Jelly Bean.

  10. Hey just wondered – which of these roms is most helpful when running out of memory?
    I find using the phone unrooted can be painful as so many apps won’t install to the sd card – they install to the phones memory which is tiny.

    Will any of these roms help in the matter, or is there a way I can set the SD card to be the base location for all apps and messages?
    It is infuriating when the memory fills up (well there is 10mb keft) and I can no longer recieve text messages

  12. Which of these roms can work with a swap file on the sdcard for GT-S5830 ?

    Post a Reply
  13. I want to use ROEHSOFT RAM Expander (SWAP):

    But first must check with MemoryInfo & Swapfile Check:

    It goes on to say:
    The purpose of this program is to test whether your device is compatible with ROEHSOFT RAMEXPANDER, they can use it as storage use information program continues if the strike should check compatibility for your device fails.
    Unfortunately, some Android devices are not in spite of root privileges in a position to deal with a swapfile, some manufacturers have this disabled kernel side. To find out if your device is compatible with RAMEXPANDER the program requires root privileges, according the Test button gets her device a large set 20Mb swap file is available, then you have to check in 5 minutes to see whether your device is unstable as the Some phones may be the case, unfortunately, the reason lies in the modules that were compiled without swap support from the manufacturer. Test extensively start their programs, after 5 minutes you get successful returns a message on the screen and can optionally install directly SWAPit Ram Expander, which they can then create up to 2.5 GB of RAM.

  16. GT-s580i does this rom work for this model of the ace ? I’ve used the Jellyblast4.1.1 worked great other then no digital connection and no ear piece. There are several files I can download to fix but would rather go with a proven stable bug free version. Just trying to get something smooth and classy feeling, not so techy. Thanks
