Today in AndroidADN I bring one of the best cooked ROMs for one of the most popular Android devices. Do you have a Galaxy Ace and want to enjoy all the new features of the latest version Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean? Here I bring you a tutorial so you can do it right now!


Given that already has more than two years on the market, the Galaxy Ace has remained on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and will not receive any official update to a later version. However, the cooked ROMs may carry Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean to the device. We have already seen how to install Android 4.2.2 on the Galaxy Ace with Wayland ROM and how to get it to Android 4.1.2 with ROM Jellaxy. While both ROMs worked fine, today I bring you a new tutorial so you can enjoy the latest version 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on your devices with other cooked ROM called SpaceCaker courtesy of XDA.
