A year ago I bought a Galaxy ACE GT-5830i which came with Gingerbread 2.3.6, recently I wanted to root it, I tried following the instructions in Root,Unroot,CWM,and how to Flash Galaxy Ace S5830i, without success.

I wiped cache, Dalvik cache, rooted again, again and again but did not work.

After the root process I found the Superuser icon on the launcher, I checked for root and even tried to use link2sd and nothing. I tried to update the superuser app from Google play and ... nothing. How to root this device?

If you see the superuser icon then your phone is rooted. See this post to know what to do after root:I've rooted my phone. Now what? What do I gain from rooting?

I tried to Root my Samsung galaxy s5830i. I followed the instruction on the xda developers and successfully rooted my S5830i without any problem and it works!. Try this at your own risk.
