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,
can be enabled by BLN Controll

*some kernel updates and

*kernel: deprecated compcache
removed, new zram is added

*default WiFi sleep policy changed to never (you can choose it in wi-fi

*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.

    • Ya, I tried. Heck it’s. Completely unstable and lots of bugs. The phone keeps restarting even after I tried with 3 generic build ROMs. Never try that. Don’t worry bro, myself trying to produce a positive result. Please do subscribe to our newsletter.

  10. ohhh….
    just keep us posted…

  11. Have you found any CM build for Galaxy Ace Duos (SCH-i589)?

    you test it … then post!!
    i have renamed the update scrip then too no use….

    please fix…

    • Did you follow the correct procedure? Let me know what was the error that you got?

      • there was no error this time only sayng

      • its seems like its true that it is not for ace duos s6802 as i too tried the samething and got status 7 error which i removed by updating the update scrip and got the following
        finding update…
        opening update…
        installing update…
        installation aborted.
        i think its for ace not ace duos please check your friend phone once or if you can upload a video to youtube it will be very kind

        • Boss…Not working on mine too…Please check first your friend cell model. I think this update is only for Galaxy ACE. Not for ACE DUOS. getting same error which SAUMITRA saying. Help to resolve this problem. I want to install it on my cell

          • 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.

          • 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

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

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

    • 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).

      • 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.

  14. 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

    “opening update package…
    installing update…
    intstalling aborted.”

    i’m realy want to update my android, so if u can help us, i’ll be very grateful.

    tnx anyway

    • Ohh, so sorry for the trouble. The link from the source has been updated and I didn’t know it. I will update it ASAP. Thanks for commenting and stay in touch.

    where is the link to download please ??

  19. 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 ……

  20. 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.

  21. hey sid,
    i ve ace duos s 6802
    can u update this rom or not?????
    must answer so i can try it….

  22. giving error status 7 while installing on galaxy ace duos s6802.

  23. 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!

    • 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. 😀

  28. 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

      Hi Daisy,

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


  29. Hey sid bro my ace duos sch i589 is soft briked and. I can’t find the firmware for it. Also no custom ROM. And as my phone can’t go to recovery mode I have to flash cwm recovery with Odin but for sch i589 no Odin flashable custom recovery is there. What should I do. Help me please bro.

  48. 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.

  49. some prblm here….when m pressing home and power key it doesnt work……how it works plz tell me

  50. The installation fails and not sure why it happens. Just gives an error at the end that can’t install.

  51. This rom will work on samsung galaxy ace duos sch i589?
