ROM Manager is indeed a very useful app, but please do not install it in Samsung Galaxy Ace ( My Ace had got hard bricked after I installed it and tried to take a backup. Thankfully, I had got it covered under warranty.

I’m not sure which other devices are incompatible with ROM Manager, but Ace is for sure.
