Thumbs up SC-02B Root, Latest Firmware, CWM & Compatible ROMs

UPDATE:
NEW THREAD HERE:

SC-02B][CM-10.1_PATCH]Howto install I9000 CM-10.1 ROM to GS1 NTT Japan
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2094861

I will host all the files until the become irrelevant.
@didhiy, please PM me when you get stuff sorted so I can delete everything off my Google Drive.


[Original Post]
First of all... it took me months of searching, trial and error, stopping, restarting, and getting to a solid solution to root my phone, get the latest firmware, and also have CWM.

So credit to everyone who helped in the below threads:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2#post23307082
http://galaxy.anddo.net/phpBB3/viewf...53453e901fbd5c

What you need:
https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0B_...JUQXNRZEU/edit

1. Odin 1.87
How to use Odin: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1160580

2. Flash SC02BOMKE3
(auto reboot, f. reset time CHECKED)
PDA: SC02BOMKE3_Daddy.tar.md5

3. After reboot, Wipe data/factory reset, clear your cache, then reboot.

4. Download the Superuser app from Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/search?q=superuser&c=apps)

5. Run Superuser on the phone to test if rooted or not (the above kernel is already rooted, so it should work). Update the su in the options page and it should update and be ok.

6. Go to Settings/About phone/Software update/Check for update and it update the firmware without flashing the whole system so you get to keep your 2.3.x update and root. I had to update twice... first time i did manually and the second popped up after the reboot...

7. Download and extract "KL4_ext4.zip"

8. Flash "zImage.tar" with Odin 1.87 to get CWM on your phone
(auto reboot, f. reset time CHECKED)
PDA: zImage.tar

9. Flash "kyapaT10mod3.tar"
(auto reboot, f. reset time CHECKED)
PDA: kyapaT10mod3.tar

For additional modifications to the kernel... I do not know what the changes are as the source is in Japanese and I don't feel like having my wife read the kanji for me... but apply if you want.

COMPLETE

IF ALL ELSE FAILS: (missing dbdata... sim card not detected...)
A. Flash SC02BOMJJ1
(re-partition, auto reboot, f. reset time CHECKED)
Pit: sc02b_odin_2011112.pit
*PDA: SC02BOMKE3_Daddy.tar.md5
Phone: MODEM_SC02BOMJJ1.tar.md5
CSC: CODE_SC02BOMJJ1.tar.md5

* Yes i know that the firmware code it does not match... but it worked for me and I use this phone for work…

B. Wipe data/factory reset and clear your cache, then continue from step 2

Using thsese files (thanks robo-d):
JVU + CFROOTJVU (better than JVP):https://hotfile.com/dl/151999730/10c...FROOT.rar.html

but my sim card was not detected. tryied to flash my modem file, that failed. but then I just reflashed everything to get CWM and restored my to working condition with my Nandroid backup.

will do some more testing now... I should read more about how the modem, csc, code, etc stuff works so I dont do any pointless flashing.

But to make it clear, I did get CM9 on my phone, no problem.

Status 7 error was also solved when I flashed the JVU kernal. So the status 7 error should be there for anyone who flashes SC02BOMKE3.

My next step:
get stock firmware
CF-root it, boot into CWRecovery
check if Status 7 error exists when flashing CM9
IF NO Status 7, flash CM9 and check Simcard
IF Status 7, back to square 1.
keep it up. IPARRYU. FULLY SUPPORT YOUR WORK.

iparryu, can you try after root and try to use asansm dongle to unlock phone? i read some article on the net said that asansa dongle can unlock the sc02b by one click. but i see the supported list, the sc02b was not listed there.

CM9 will flash... but the sim card wont detect. But i only tried on the usa firmware... i cant find a SC02B firmware that i can flash CWM and NOT get a status 7 error when i truy to flash CM9.

I will try DK rom next as i lucked out with CM9 for the past few days.

If the process is not the same as CM9 then it may work...

Then again, after a few hours of trian and error, i noticed that when i flash the rom baseband or kernal is changed... so this would screw up any previous firmware that i am on...

Pleas note that i not a dev... i dont make any of these files... i just flash them...

I must look like a total jackass to one of these super nerds here... but hey, let the Guinea pig do his job.

no, i flashed US stuffs, and was able to flash CM9 from CW recovery.

So after reading some stuffs... the Status 7 error is proably from me trying to flash CM9 with firmware (or whatever it is called) that does not match...

same think happened with Dark Knight 5.

So I am at a conclusion that all we can do is hope someone develops a ROM for SC02B or there is something else we can do to get around this...

so for now, we are stuck with kyapas T10 mod3 (not that it is really bad... but no other ROMS)

I would get the NTT docomo boot screen followed by the GTI9000 screen, so we are on teh same page. the CM9 Nightly build works perfectly fine despite the sim card not being detected.

If I knew how to make a CF-root kernal for the SC-02b I would do it... but dont know who to get at to get the stuff needed...

ya i got that weird screen too.. also if you turn your brightness down using zdtools it will give the same effect until you increase the brightness.

that is not a major malfunction, so don't worry about it.
