Requirements:

You need to look at the certain requirements before going for this update.

  • Enable the USB debugging mode, Settings > Applications > Development.
  • Download the USB drivers of this device and install on your PC.
  • Create a backup of your personal stuff (message, call log, files) using apps.
  • Charge the battery of your device to more than half.
  • Your device must be rooted.

Download:

Steps to Insall Jellyblast 4.1.1 Custom ROM Firmware in Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830i:

  • Download the firmware update zip file on your PC from the link provided above.
  • Connect your device to PC using USB and transfer the downloaded zip file in the SD card of device in the root folder.
  • Disconnect your device and turn it off.
  • Now turn on your device by holding menu button then power button. This will make you enter into the recovery mode. If the device did not enter in the recovery mode by this method then you can try this using “ROM Manager” app which is available at GooglePlay store.
  • Now select the zip file which you placed in the SD card using volume keys.
  • After selecting the zip file, it will take around 4-5 minutes for applying the update.
  • Once the installation process is over, select “go back” and reboot your device. It will take more time than usual for the first time start.

Your Galaxy Ace S5830i android smartphone now has the Android Jelly Bean v4.1 operating system from the Jellyblast 4.1.1 Custom ROM Firmware Update.

Update: If the above version of JellyBlast doesn’t work for you and your device faces issues (some of them are mentioned in the comments below) then try the older version. 

Download: JellyBlast ported for S5830i version 3

Issues: I noticed that some guys are facing issues with calls and IMEI. Please check the comments of “real african” and “keith” in the comment section for the solution.

    Hi,
    I applied this update on my Galaxy 5830i. Now I cant make or receive any calls. It seems to have locked out my sim that was working on the phone before. Evrthing else works but I cannot connect to my service provider, Sim works on other phone. Can you please help me.
    Thanks

      That’s a strange problem. No one else faced the similar problem. I think you should try to reinstall the update. Do it and let me know if that solves the issue.

        January 9, 2013 at 4:43 pm

        Ok Thanks,
        Will try again. For some reason the IMEI and other information is missing. Is there any other step to take other than the instructions given.

        Hello Mr. Pathak,

        I tried the same two days back and was happy to have the system upgraded…

        But that happyness didn’t last long as I see that I can not make any call and calls on my numbers gets message that the mobile is switched off..

        When I search on the net, I see this as a common problem and now from last two days I am looking in to the solution for the same…

        The calling is not working anymore and I need you to suggest some way to correct the same…

        I am also ready to get back to the original system if that helps…Please suggest if I can go back..

        Is there any way I can update IMEA number as it is blank currently..

        Need your urgent help vcbavishi@yahoo.co.in

    2. Google playstore always give an error and the process gets killed.

    **********************YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO MAKE CALLS OR GET ONLINE ONCE YOU HAVE INSTALLED THE INTERFACE THATS CAUSE THE THIS: (I think you’ve lost your IMEI (don’t worry it’s not lost, this rom somehow can’t read your IMEI number). Please check your IMEI number by using *#06# on call screen.
    If you can’t see your IMEI number, install GalaxyToolbox and check the IMEI from there. If you can see the IMEI from GalaxyToolbox, it means IMEI is still there but rom can’t read it)

    Download these two files

    Search Google for them

    (kernel-201211201515-E3-boot.zip)

    (modulos201211201515-modules.zip)

    1. copy the 2 zip files to your SD card
    2.then boot the phone in recovery
    3. Install the two packages one after the out her
    4. Reboot

    Your phone should now connect to your mobile network and you should be able to call and text YOU CAN THANK ME LATERS :-) REGARDS & ALL THE BEST FOR 2014 KEITH FROM HULL (ENGLAND)–

      I tried the same two days back and was happy to have the system upgraded…
      But that happyness didn’t last long as I see that I can not make any call and calls on my numbers gets message that the mobile is switched off..
      When I search on the net, I see this as a common problem and now from last two days I am looking in to the solution for the same…
      The calling is not working anymore and I need you to suggest some way to correct the same…
      I am also ready to get back to the original system if that helps…Please suggest if I can go back..
      Is there any way I can update IMEA number as it is blank currently.

    Hi All,

    I have also lost IMEI like many othres here. I do not see IMEI in Galaxy Tool Box. The 2 files which Keith suggested installing is not working on my phone. Can someone help?please. The details of my phone after upgrade are as below:
    Model-GT-S5830i
    Android Version-4.1.1
    Baseband Version-S5830iDDLI1
    Kernel Version-2.6.35.7
    Build number-JELLYBLAST V3.0.3

    I have a doubt on Baseband version becoz I see many guys have a different one after upgrade. DId I install a wrong thing on my cell?

    Any help, please inbox me rahulchauhan009@gmail.com

    Thanks
    Rahul

    Hi,
    I applied this update on my Galaxy 5830i. Now I cant make or receive any calls. It seems to have locked out my sim that was working on the phone before. Evrthing else works but I cannot connect to my service provider, Sim works on other phone. Can you please help me.
    Thanks
