How to Root the Samsung Galaxy Ace (S5830)

The Samsung Galaxy Ace is (now) a low-end device that was released in February 2011 and came with features like 3.5-inch touchscreen display, HSDPA network support, an 800MHz processor, and a 5MP camera.  Not bad, but if you want something more from this, rooting, installing ClockworkMod Recovery and flashing a custom ROM is the way to go.  This guide below will help you get that first step out of the way – rooting the Galaxy Ace.

I.  Before You Begin

1.  Back up everything you feel is important.
2.  Make sure you have your device charged to 75% or more before you begin.
