CyanogenMod 10.1 for Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos-Latest

I hope you have already tried the latest CyanogenMod 10.1 for Samsung Galaxy mini. This time I bring the Android 4.2.1 CM10.1 for Samsung Galaxy Ace instead of galaxy mini. Though I don’t have galaxy Ace, I tried to install the below ROM on my friend’s device and surprisingly it got flashed without any issues.

As you can see in my galaxy mini post, most of my loyal readers asked me to provide the latest CyanogenMod 10.1 ROMs for galaxy Ace. The main reason why I’m not intended to post about SGA, aka, Samsung galaxy Ace is I don’t like to roughly provide the links without testing in my own devices.

Thanks to my friend for giving me his phone to root and install CM10.1. I was bit confused about its result since I’ve a bitter experience with SGA. That I will tell you later. Let’s come to the matter.

CyanogenMod is always a great source for experiencing high end features in any low and legacy devices like SGM and SGA. The only thing which we lack after trying the ROM is our poor phone’s hardware configuration. However, something is better than nothing. Nope, I may don’t call it as “something” because you will get almost anything as we usually gets in high end phones except hardware functionalities after using custom ROMs.

Here I provide the latest updated version of CyanogenMod 10.1 for Samsung Galaxy Ace.

What’s new in this release
21.01.2013 Beta6:

*All proprietaries libs are updated to latest stock ROM versions

*Audio HAL updated

*Camera HAL updated (Better preview handling)

*Offline charging fix

*Gmail app removed (can be installed from marked)

*BLN support disabled by default,

*triple buffering disabled now

*GPS updates: HAL is built from
sources, updated gps.conf, faster
GPS lock

*CM & androidarmv6 latest sources and many Other changes…

Whats working:


*Camera preview & taking pictures




*Mobile data



*HW accel

*Touch (with multitouch)


*USB mass storage



*Camera recording

Known bugs:

#Audio routing issue: in some cases audio routes to handset instead of headset

#Secure WiFi AP


Download CM10.1 ROM

Flashing Procedure

* Download and copy the ROM to your SD Card.

* Reboot your phone to recovery by
pressing home button + power button simultaneously.

*. Choose Install from SD Card by
navigating with volume keys.

* Choose the installed file from the list.

*. After installation, wipe data, and
dalvik cache.

*. Reboot system.

Done. This version does not include Gapps. So you’ve to install it manually.

Note : 1. Only do the above procedures if your Android device is rooted already.

2. Always do a NANDROID backup
before applying any updates. So move on to recovery options > restore and backup > backup

3. After installing the ROM, you may sometimes struck at boot. Just

reinsert the battery and switch on.

Download GApps from here

Hope this guide has helped you to get most from your Android device. Share and do let me know if some bugs have conquered your flashing.

    Are you sure it is for Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos ? The file description says it is for Samsung Galaxy Ace (GT-S5830) beta 6….

    • says

          • says

            Hi Wasi, I had contacted the developer of this ROM regarding the compatibility check. He said that it would work on all Ace variants but I don’t know why you are getting error since I’ve checked the same procedure in my behalf. Let me search on the ROM update. I will update if I get newer versions. Do subscribe our newsletter to receive our latest posts.

          • Wasi says

            Hi Sid! Are you sure this is for GT-S6802 ? because when you click on your given link it’s showing it’s for GT-S5830

          • Wasi Bilgrami says

            I also tried STATUS 7 Trick… Everything install properly but my system didn’t update and still have 2.3.6 GB version

  6. Vivek Shama says

    Please post a CM10.1 post for Samsung Galaxy S Duos (GT S7562).
    Or should I go ahead with these steps on my phone. ??

    • Vivek Shama says

      Also, if something goes wrong, then I can always flash my phone with stock_recovery.tar file right ?

      What my question here is, if something goes wrong then phones software to download the custom firmware will work or not ?
      (in Galaxy S Duos, it opens by Vol_Down + Power + Home press).

      • says

        Hi, there are 2 major types of risks while doing so. Soft brick and hard brick. You can identify which has happened by simply connecting your charger. If your phone responds to the charging, it’s soft brick otherwise, it’s hard brick. If hard brick occurred, nothing will help except approaching with Samsung care.

  7. Pedro says

    Hello Sid, i saw that u try to help us all, and i’m very grateful about that too;
    but I also some people here have this error when try to install this ROM on the S6802

    • says

      Your phone is soft bricked. For this, just insert a new rom in your SD card and flash it will CWM. Let me know if it works.

  9. aditya says

    Hi Sid,

    Plz rply some solid results ..
    Thanks in advance…

  10. daniel says

    sorry I saw the link, I just would like to know if it really works as I am new on these procedures and so a little ……

  11. Chuno says

    I contacted Pavel, former developer of that ROM. He says he may not be sure if this rom would run or even install in ACE DUOS S5802, for he developed the rom for his ACE, which is slightly different hardware.

  12. Pawan says

    Unfortunately , I’ve been damaged my sga 6802 three time and the problem was soft brick by flashing this custom Rom android 4.0,bla bla bla.
    Thi Rom is not tested and not supported s6802 .
    So if you want to flash a custom Rom you can download and flash A-DROID ROM BY AASHISH.
    I hope s6802 users will not damage own smartphone!

    • says

      Hi Pawan, what actually happened was, the first link has been replaced with CM for SGA by mistake and it was an error from the develepor side. BTW, I have already corrected the link with A-Droid ROM. Check it our. 😀

  13. Murtazaali says

    So that I can enjoy my Samsung ace duos s6802 in original mode.

  15. Daisy says

    Hello Sid,

    What is the status the SCH – i589 ROM? Some guys at the xda forums have a chineses version, do you have an Indian version?
    Also what custom recovery did you use?

    Will appreciate a prompt reply..

    • Sayantan Mahato says

      Hi Daisy,

      I guess it might be out by now. As far as custom recovery is concerned, Sid uses CWM.


  16. mohit says

    Comparing the Samsung Galaxy S4 to the likes of the HTC One and
    Apple i – Phone 5 is inevitable. Underneath the screen there is a Home button, with a capacitive menu.
    What appears on both phones’ screens is very customizable, which is
    nice because I really didn’t like the way they were set up out of the box.
