Samsung Galaxy Ace getting Gingerbread update in India

Samsung India has started rolling out Android 2.3.4 update for Galaxy Ace in the country. Update is now available via Samsung Kies. Full change-log is not available right now, but according to the previous announcement from Samsung, this update increases battery life, improved user interface, faster access and control and a more intuitive user experience in addition to improved copy-paste functionality.

The new update also adds the much needed Indic languages support, which was earlier missing in the smartphone. So what are you waiting for, download Kies now and download the update.

As you would know every update is rolled out in batches, so if you don’t get the update on the first go – don’t worry, you will get in the next few days. According to Samsung, you will soon be able to get your Ace updated by going to a service center also, so if not possible via Kies, go to your nearest service center.

Drop in your experiences with the updated Galaxy Ace in the comments. Also you can help out others by mentioning how you were able to successfully update the device.


  1. kies shows that the update is available for glalxy ace when i connect . but i tried several times but no sucess as yet.

    There is no clear procedure to do this.

    when asked with samsung customer service this is the information i got.

    "As per Information Samsung mobile model GT-S5830 is coming with v2.2
    Android Version , v2.3 (GINGERBREAD) Android version , we don’t have any
    official upgradation info in INDIA so kindly bear with us till then. "

    but i found a upgrade information for glalxy s device that we have to put the phone in to download mode before doing upgrade.

    but i dont want to try this until some one gives the clear steps to do this.

    every where in forums i can find "i installed successfully or some failure stories" but there is no solution given

  2. i have updated via kies and i am from india
