The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is a mid-range smartphone which comes with Android Gingerbread 2.3.6 but is upgradeable to Jelly Bean 4.1. In this post we will cover rooting Android 2.3.6 on the Ace 2.

Caution!
    1. Rooting voids warranty
    2. Make a backup of your important data just incase.
    3. Make sure your device is well charged, atleast 40% battery or more.
    4. Follow the steps carefully, AndroidJunkie will not be responsible for any damage caused to your device.
Step 1: Let's begin by enabling USB debugging on the phone. To do that, simply go to Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging.
Download Odin to your computer - Click here.
You may also need to install drivers so just incase download them from this thread and install them on your computer.

Step 2: Download this file update_su.zip to internal sdcard.

Step 3: Download this file  I8160XXLD8_ready_to_root_ANT.tar.zip to your computer.

Step 4: Power off your phone. Once it completely shuts off, hold the Power + Volume down + Home button together and you should boot in Download mode.

Step 5: Start the Odin program on your computer and connect your phone while it is in Download mode, wait a few seconds and the Odin program should detect it and display it as a yellow box.

Step 6: In the PDA field, choose the I8160XXLD8_ready_to_root_ANT.tar.zip file you downloaded earlier, leave the rest of the settings as they are and simply click on Start.

Step 7: Wait a few seconds, you should see a box in green color saying PASS! Now after this, power off your phone again completely then hold Volume up + Power + Home button at the same time and you will be in Recovery mode.

Step 8: In Recovery mode, select "apply update from sdcard" and choose the update_su.zip file.

Step 9: Once it is done, reboot the phone and enjoy.
