I Have Root!!
I just followed the procedure posted in this thread and did not have to install another homesync OS to get root. I did have to install kies on my laptop cause I apparently needed the drivers. The drivers i had installed work for my SG3 but did not for homesync.

I also have the JDQ39.B9150UEUBMH8 build. No issues with the method after installing keis to my PC.

Thanks all for the great easy root info!!!

Now to play with my root

Yes, I was wrong. I'm on stock T-Mobile 4.4 and after everything updated the homesync and note 3 are working together nicely.

Did you notice any difference before and after the update? Will you try and root it following the method from a few pages back?

Few details on rooting and enabling play store, I added in SD referring this forum. Little clean version
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Can be rooted!
1) Make sure you're at a firmware like MJ3 or earlier. I tried on ML4 but it did not work on this one.
2) Download "saferoot" from the following link:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2565758
3) Then read the following post:
https://github.com/koush/Superuser/issues/196
and download the following supersu update:
http://download.clockworkmod.com/sup.../superuser.zip
4) Extract the newly downloadaed superuser.zip and find the su binary in armeabi folder and the superuser.apk in the root folder of the extracted zip file
5) Copy the new su binary and the superuser.apk to the files directory inside extracted saferoot directory. Replace the existing su and superuser.apk
6) Enable development mode and then usb debugging on Homesync
Enable development mode from Settings>About Device > Click on the Build number about several times until Development mode pops up, and then checked usb debugging box
Connect USB cable from your PC to microUSB on HomeSync, install Samsung_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones (google it) so that the computer can connect to the HomeSync
7) run saferoot, let it do its job
go to saferoot folder on your PC, run the install.bat to begin rooted process.

Update : existing firmware MH8 is rootable too. below is the log

Code:
D:\Homesync\saferoot>install.bat

On your phone, open SuperSU and let it update if it asks.

--- All Finished ---
Press any key to continue . . .
You can download any MJ3, such as the one from Turkey or Singapore, etc. Installing this with Odin will make you lose all what's inside the Homesync (including the 1TB drive content), so make sure to backup. (Thanks Fastguy)

ENABLING PLAY STORE
Note: You have to root first,
This is simplest method found and you dont need to edit build.prop. if this helps, consider donating app developer.
Steps:
1.Download Market helper from http://codekiem.com/market-helper/latest
2.Install and open
3.It will ask for root permissions, grant
4.Use settings as for nexus 7
5. Enable device on google dashboard

TA DAA.. you are all set.


If you reboot, you have to follow above steps again. Anyway this device supposed to be turn on all time (personal cloud) so this should not matter.

Full steps

Awesome tip, thank you. I was hoping that I would not have to side load all my paid apps. This worked great!

Does anyone know if it would be safe to install a custom recovery such as TWRP? EDIT: Never mind, I re-read the "Saferoot" page where it is explained that custom recovery is not possible since the rooting method does nothing to unlock the bootloader.

Amazon Appstore
Anyone have any luck with the Amazon appstore showing all previously purchased apps? I looked around for a solution similar to what worked for Google Play but found nothing.

I found the fingerprint for the nexis 7 from its build.prop file and modified the file for the homesync, rebooted,reinstalled the Amazon appstore apk but still no go.

Updated to ML4 before finding out that root is possible
on the Homesync.
It is possible Odin back to the previous firmware (MH8),
to be able to apply this root procedure?
Thanks.

Yes, just download the MJ3 firmware from any country and flash with Odin. See above posts for that. You will lose all files so backup first.

Yes the status bar and notification window is special. I tried to use other SystemUI and framework on this but did not succeed to get a "normal" one. Since the bootloader looks locked I also could not try to flash firmware from Nexus 10 (which seems to have the same hardware components and also produced by Samsung). Any help on this is appreciated.

How did you manage to see the notification window when you are in Apex Launcher? I could not get it on Nova. Are you using MJ3 or other?
