The method was originally created for Sony Ericson devices but later on when the tool was tested on some other devices like Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II, Galaxy Tab, and Nexus S and on Motorola’s Milestone, XT860, Defy and Nexus One then it was found to be working smoothly.

Using the tool is simple as eating a pizza; all you need to do is download the tool kit (link provided below), unzip it and follow on screen menu to root the device using a Windows PC.

Procedure to un-root a device:

  • Download the unrooting script v1.0 tool (link provided below).
  • Extract the file using WinZip or 7zip tool.
  • Now, go to the folder that you have extracted and execute the RUNME-UNROOT.bat.
  • Follow the on-screen guide to un-root the device.

      Amzam you can try fixing your device after getting the stock ROM for Galaxy Ace and then use unrooting tool, If doesn’t work do let us know.

      Try pressing back + volume up button to boot your device in emergency mode after that if it will boot in emergency mode then just try re-flashing your device with another copy of fresh Android OS.
