[Guide]
DoCoMo SC-03E / Samsung Galaxy S III alpha
Reset "Custom Binary Download", "Curren Binary", "System Status" for factory default and warranty


Since I did try some "declamed" official European ROM on SC-03E (no one still can be fully flashed by Odin), my counter on the "Dowload mode" screen was increased.
So I was hoping to use Triangle Away... but the available Sock Prerooted ROMs online actually don't make the SC-03E rooted [the combo of the tree buttons (even with USB Debugging enabled) just makes a device "fast restart" (without the usual menu), while performing the combo on switching the device on, nothing happens] and all the links from aki0306 are no more on line.

Note that following this guide you will loose all your data.
Make a backup!


I have tried many ways.
At the end, the ONLY working has been this:

Flash SC03E-JB-KBC-CWM-V6.0.3.0_r0-recovery-odin.tar.md5 from PC by Odin tool [PDA field]
+
Wipe cache partition from CWM "Bootloader Mode" on the SC-03E
+
Wipe data/factory reset from CWM "Bootloader Mode" on the SC-03E
+
Wipe dalvik cache from CWM "Bootloader Mode" on the SC-03E
+
Flash cm-10.1-20130329-KBC-sc03e.zip from micro SD, by CWM on the SC-03E
+
Install, launch and apply Triangle Away on the SC-03E
+
Let the phone reboots, BUT DON'T LET the OS be loaded! PUT IT SOON IN DOWNLOAD MODE (volume down + home + power) BEFORE OR AS SOON AS THE DOCOMO LOGO APPEARS
+
Flash Stock Official ROM by Odin tool from PC
+
[IMPORTANT] Cache Wipe from official "Bootloader Mode" on the SC-03E
+
[IMPORTANT] Factory Reset from official "Bootloader Mode" on the SC-03E

At the end you will get

Reset Custom Binary Download: No
Curren Binary: Samsung Official
System Status: Official


Kies recognize the device as usual.

Now I'm having troubles on my phone for other reasons, but I did test this fix and still worked just for "Reset Custom Binary Download: No", and "Curren Binary: Samsung Official".
I get "System Status: Custom" probably because I did some mistake with the new ND2 ROM (Android 4.3.3).
I'm not sure if that depends by my wrong experiments on the phone with the new ROM or by the new ROM itself, that probabably has some more efficient security settings.
