How to Manually Root the Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 for Free

The Ace 2 gets very little attention from Samsung’s marketing department. Compared to the flagship Note and Galaxy S devices, the little Ace hardly stands a chance.

But that hasn’t stopped the little Ace 2 from becoming one of the most popular Android smartphones to date. The Ace 2 launched in early 2012 and features a 480x800 screen, Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread, and less than 1GB of RAM.

Despite its limited specs, there are still thousands of Ace 2 users out there. If you’re an Ace 2 user who wants to squeeze one last good year out of your device, then rooting is an excellent option. Today, we’re going to tell you why you should root your Ace 2 before showing you exactly how to do it.

The best reasons to root your Galaxy Ace 2:

-Increase the speed and performance of your Ace 2

-Increase storage capacity by removing unneeded apps and Samsung tools

-Improve battery life

-Install a new custom ROM or the latest Android update

-Get that new phone feeling for absolutely no cost at all

Basically, rooting your Ace 2 lets you experience the feeling of a new phone without actually buying a new phone. You can improve performance on your aging device and even install some of the latest versions of Android – or at least custom ROMs that look just like it.

Warning: Before You Proceed

Our automatic Android rooting software, One Click Root, does not currently support the Ace 2. That means you have to manually root the device yourself. We’ll show you exactly how to do that in the instructions below.

One Click Root takes no responsibility for damages caused to your phone as a result of these instructions. When followed incorrectly, these instructions can damage your phone and lead to a loss of data.

When followed correctly, the steps below will successfully root your phone without any data loss at all. With that in mind, let’s get started.

Required materials:

-Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 with at least 50% battery life running Gingerbread 2.3.6

-About one hour of spare time

-Internet connected PC

-Micro USB/USB cord

Step by Step Guide

Step 1) Allow installing apps from non-Google Play Store sources by going to Settings>Applications and ticking the box beside Unknown Sources.

Step 2) In the same settings menu, scroll down further to the Development section and then tick USB Debugging.

Step 3) Install the latest Samsung USB drivers from here:  http://developer.samsung.com/android/tools-sdks/Samsung-Andorid-USB-Driver-for-Windows

Step 4) Download and install Odin and then run it. Tick the boxes beside Auto Reboot and Reset Time (ignore all the other scary looking settings and boxes)

Step 5) Download the Ace 2 rooting code from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?%20attachmentid=1142765&d=1340200370

Step 6) Unzip that rooting code to a temporary location. It should have some crazy-looking name like I8160XXLD8_ready_to_root_ANT.tar.md5

Step 7) Press the PDA button in Odin and find that .md5 file that you just extracted

root ace 2

Step 8) Power down your Ace 2 and wish it good luck on the journey ahead

Step 9) Power up your phone into download mode by holding down the power, home, and volume down buttons at the same time.

Step 10) You’ll get lots of scary warning messages at this point. Instead of heeding these warning messages, simply press the volume up button to continue until you see a picture of an Android alien on your screen that says Downloading…do not turn off target.

Step 11) While your Ace 2 says Downloading…do not turn off target, plug it into your PC using your micro USB cord

Step 12) Once you’ve connected your Ace 2, Odin should detect it pretty quickly and display Added! In the bottom corner. Once you see that message, you can press Start in Odin to begin the rooting process.

Step 13) After pressing start, it should only take a few seconds for Odin to tinker with your phone, after which your Ace 2 will reboot itself. At this point, it’s time to turn off your phone once more and load the phone into Recovery Mode. To do that, wait until it’s completely powered down and then power it back up by holding the volume up, home, and power buttons at the same time.

Step 14) Download the update_su.zip file from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?%20attachmentid=1142765&d=1340200370 and drop it onto your phone’s storage unit

Step 15) Once in Recovery Mode, choose Apply Update from SDcard and then choose update_su.zip

Step 16) That’s it! You should power your phone on to find that it looks exactly the same. That’s a good thing. You can now download and install custom ROMs as well as root-only apps. Congratulations.
