How To Install Android 4.4.2 CM11 ROM On Samsung Galaxy Ace (S5830)

The Samsung Galaxy Ace isn’t getting any younger, but that doesn’t mean the XDA team has abandoned it. In fact, XDA contributor Mardon has just dropped an Android KitKat 4.4.2 CM11 ROM for the Galaxy Ace.
This guide will walk you though the installation process for CM11 on the Galaxy Ace bearing the model number S5830. As always, Androidstray assumes no liability for the firmware installation. Proceed with caution.
Before Getting Started
Do not use this guide for any device other than the Galaxy Ace (S5830 model). Flashing this ROM onto any other device will most probably result in a bricked phone.
You must have your Galaxy Ace rooted, with a recovery utility like ClockworkMod installed. As always, you want to backup your device and charge it to at least 80 percent.
Finally, enable USB Debugging mode by navigating to Settings -> Developer Options.
Updating Galaxy Ace to Android KitKat 4.4.2 via CM11 ROM
1) Download the Android 4.4.2 KitKat CM11 ROM, as well as the Google Apps package, which can be found here and here.
2) Using your USB cable, connect your Galaxy Ace to your computer.
3) Copy CM11 custom ROM and the Google Apps package to the root folder of your handset’s SD card. Do not extract either.
4) Boot your phone into Recovery mode by pressing the Volume Up, Home and Power buttons simultaneously until you see a Galaxy Ace logo, then release all three to enter recovery mode.
5) Perform a factory reset by selecting “Wipe data/Factory reset.”
6) In CWM recovery, navigate to “Format system” in the Mounts and Storage submenu, and then press “Yes.” Next, navigate to the Advanced submenu and select “Wipe Dalvik Cache.” Select “Yes” when prompted.
7) Navigate to “Install Zip from SD card” and select the ROM file copied earlier. Repeat the same step to install the Google Apps package.
8) After the installation is complete, press “Go back” and then select “Reboot system now” to restart your phone. This may take some time.
9) After restarting, your Galaxy Ace will officially be running Android 4.4.2 KitKat CM11 ROM. Kudos.
