Christopher244 said...

first time i tried to flash.i bricked my phone...so i had to reflash the gingerbread rom onto my phone...
Can this be installed without CWM?

tonyR said...

Does my phone have to rooted for this?! also, the only reason i wana do this is because my galacy ace has become so slow and it lags alot. Will this be fixed after the ROM update. I mean is the galaxy ace hardware able to support all this?

Davis Becklin said...

@cristopher: no, you must use cwm v5. you can find the link on that tutorial above

@tonyR: yes you must root your phone.
hmm i think if your galaxy ace become slow because your rom is damaged. so you must flash new firmware and fix the lag first. so when you install the custom rom above everything will run smoothly.

see this:
flash stock firmware on galaxy ace

Dhaval Sangani said...
