I know, i am a little bit to late with that topic, because this AndroidOS is more than 4 years old but i spent the last couple of days with that. And so i want to save it for myself.

If your Samsung Galaxy Ace 5830i is bricked (does not start or stuck in a boot loop), here is the ultimative way to unbrick it and update the OS to CyanogenMod9. I use the nightly build from the middle of the year 2015. Because for this phone, never exists a offical release of any other than the original Samsung image.

 

 
Security advice: Never use some of this for an other phone like the 5830i (with the i at the end) especially not with the Galaxy Ace 5830 (without the i)!

Ok let’s start, enjoy your flight and good luck!
