Are you sick of your Galaxy Ace Plus? actually using Android 2.3 Gingerbread in 2014 is certainly not gratifying, so why not upgrade your phone to a recent version of Android? with the graphics of Jelly Bean and the improvements introduced by Google in its latest versions of Android you could renew your interest in this phone.
Unfortunately the official updates have stopped for some time, but fortunately in the Android world there are "unofficial" solutions to any need, in fact in this guide, we will install a fantastic Custom Rom, the CyanogenMod 10.1 (unofficial).
This ROM is among the best currently available for the Galaxy Ace Plus, based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a substantial upgrade that will make you appreciate the improvements introduced by Google in the latest versions of Android and will increase the applications available for your device.

- This is the Cyanogen by TechKang with many bugs fixed
- based on Kernel 3.0.101
- based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
- Wifi Thethering

The only bug in this ROM is the flash not working in the camera / camcorder, it only works with the "Torch" application, moreover, as soon as you take a picture, a preview of the green image is shown for a moment, but the photo is however saved correctly.
PREPARE FOR INSTALLATION
You'll need some software to flash the cyanogenmod on the Galaxy Ace Plus:
Install Kies on your PC and then extract the compressed Odin file in a PC folder (for example in the Dektop).
To install a Custom ROM like the CyanogenMod you first need a modified recovery that allows you to perform advanced operations on the Android device, in this guide we will use the TWRP Recovery.
ìI remember that these operations could cause permanent damage to the device, we assume no liability.
