There are tons of useful articles and how-to guides on MyTrickSource for the Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos, but we think you might be interested in this posts: How to Update Galaxy Ace Duos S6802 to XXMA1 Android 2.3.6 Official Firmware

Like this A-Droid V 2.0 ROM based on the latest Android 4.0.4? We love it too and we know you are looking forward to install it on your phone now. Now please read below for important tips on how to make sure your installation goes smooth and you do not end up with any problems.

Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos USB Drivers

You will need to connect your Android phone with the computer. For that, please make sure you have installed the USB drivers for Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos properly. If not, you can download the latest official drivers from our Android USB Drivers section here:
Download Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos USB drivers!

Backup and Other Important Tips

Done with the USB drivers? Perfect. The tutorial is on the next page, but first, please take a look at the following tips and important points you need to take care of. These are important, as we don’t want anyone losing their personal data or apps:
Always backup your important data that you might need after you install a new custom ROM, an official software update or anything else. Make a backup for just in case, you never know when anything might go wrong. See below for some tips on how to backup data:


       Samsung users can also back up data using Samsung KIES. If you backup data manually, you get more options what to choose from and it is very easy to move data across Android devices from different manufacturers, i.e moving Samsung Galaxy S3 backup data to HTC One X.

          If you already have a custom recovery (ClockworkMod, TWRP etc.) installed on your phone, we strongly recommend a backup using that as it creates a complete image of your existing phone set up.

       A few more optional tips that you should remember:

              1. Having problems connecting your Android phone to the computer? You need to enable USB debugging mode.

              2. Make sure your Android device is charged up to 80-85% battery level. Why? Because, if your phone goes off suddenly while installing a custom ROM, flashing an official firmware update or installing mods etc. — your phone might get bricked or go dead permanently. No one wants that, right?

              3. Most of the tutorials and how-to guides on MyTrickSource are for factory unlocked Android phones and tablets. We recommend NOT to try our guides if your phone is locked to a carrier, unless we have specified the carrier name or device model.

      If you find the above tips useful and they were helpful to you, please consider giving us a +1 or LIKE to thank us!
      All set and ready? Good. Now, let’s proceed with the tutorial on the next page and update Galaxy Ace Duos S6802 to A-Droid V 2.0 Custom Rom based on ICS custom firmware.
