Is there any workaround for this?

Just make sure your select Japanese input within your apps. Seems to stick for me.

Thumbs up Docomo market working.
See the fix in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...11&postcount=2

The docomo_market.apk is from the original 1.5/1.6 firmware.
Or just launch your browser to : http://www.dcm-gate.com/Xperia/AND/

There hasn't been a need to update the fingerprint setting for "protected" apps. I suspect because there are quiet a few offical Japanese Android phone on Softbank/AU etc.. that they have stopped checking.

Hmm. With Softbank's entire (AMAZING) lineup on 2.2, I'm holding out hope that Docomo's working on it for the Xperia. Otherwise, they should probably stop selling it...

Anyway, Monday should bring an annoucement.

If I were to bother updating now, does the SP-mode app work well? The latest update killed notifcations, so I have no clue when I get an email anymore, unless I check the widget.

I haven't tried SP-mode, since I'm using i-mode.net with iMoNi. So if someone knows please respond. But I read else where other people have updated and install SP-mode app without any problem.

I don't get why they have two products. I stuck with i-mode.net since I can read my i-mode email on any browser etc.

Because SP-mode is instant push email with full native support, whereas i-mode.net is just a way to view i-mode mail on devices other than a phone.

You can have both services, and they compliment each other.

Kanjis with partial Chinese characters
are starting to bug me after testing the nordic firmware. I'm assuming Docomo's firmware should not have this problem, but does anyone know / have any advice on getting around this problem?
I'm now trying to flash global...

Just wait until Wednesday, Docomo's releasing the update then, with PO Box 3.0.

I can't wait for the update this Wednesday, but I have a quick question; ok, maybe three.

It could be lack of understanding, but atm, I don't really understand that need for debranding a headset. I had an iPhone before I purchased the Xperia, and never even considered debranding. So with that said...

What benefit is there to debranding your phone?

Is the thinking similar to installing a vanilla copy of windows on a new PC so you can avoid, potentially resource heavy apps that the distributor wanted to include?

By debranding, do you risk not being able to use that specific carrier's network to the fullest?

Thanks. Just curious.

Thanks for your feedback, iead1. Was wondering how I'm going to survive without being able to type my own name. Anxious for Wed.

If your phone is branded as NTT Docomo SO-01B, you'll probably be able to download the update via SEUS on Wednesday.
