How to unbrick Samsung Galaxy Ace

If your phone doesn’t boot into download mode and you have a black screen after flashing froyo, here’s how you unbrick it. It has worked for many folks.

  1. Prepare odin with the firmware u want to flash (in my case was gingerbread 2.3.3) and get it ready to go.
  2. Remove battery, SIM and SD card, next connect your galaxy ace to the computer.
  3. Hold Volume down + Power + Home button at the same time.
  4. Insert the battery and wait a bit.
  5. At this point Odin should have detected your SG Ace ( Yellow rectangle should appear)
  6. Click Start button in Odin and wait about 5 min.

If all goes well it should come back to life.

You should know how to flash firmware using ODIN.
