You can only follow this guide using a Windows PC or notebook with a USB port in the side. The Odin app only works with the Windows operating system from Windows XP and up. Moreover, the PC must have a USB port so you can connect the Samsung smartphone.

The guide is made for people who own the Samsung galaxy Ace S5830. Do not try using this guide if you don’t have that same model number. You can learn what your model number is anytime but navigating to the Settings > About Device menu and taking a look at the number from there.

Unrooting the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830

  1. Extract the stock ROM folder and the Odin flashing folder to the desktop of the Windows PC.
  2. Run the Odin flashing tool. Leave it open because we are coming back to it shortly.
  3. Make sure you have the Samsung Galaxy Ace turned completely off by holding the Power button in for ten seconds.
  4. Reboot the Galaxy Ace to the download mode: Volume Down + Home + Power button for 5 seconds.
  5. If you see the warning screen with a yellow triangle, press the Volume Up button.
  6. Now that you are in the download mode, connect the galaxy Ace to the PC with the USB cable.
  7. Since the Odin tool is already running, it should have no worries detecting your device.
  8. Click the AP or PDA button — depending on the version of Odin you are using.
  9. Click the Start button in the Odin app and wait for it to finish flashing your device with the stock ROM (firmware).

Once it’s done, you should see a “pass” message on the display. That means you are now ready to disconnect.
