Rooting Information

This root method shows custom status, but FeliCa works.
Instructions - Device Rooting

There are guides on xda on how to do every step, so please don't ask how to do any particular step in this post.
If you can't get the Download Mode to show Samsung Official, keep reflashing the recovery image and rebooting. It may take a few tries.
If it doesn't work. Try making a tar file with the official recovery.img in. Guide here.
You must install the cwm in the last step using the dd command. You can't use Odin or it will disable NFC again.

  1. Download these things:
    The latest KitKat firnware (link in the first post)
    The KitKat CWM recovery (attached)
    Odin and Samsung Mobile Drivers
    SuperSU CWM Installer
    7zip
  2. Extract the firmware so you have a tar.md5 file.
  3. If you don't have KitKat yet, do this:
    Reboot to download mode
    Run Odin press AP and select the firmware tar.md5
    Press Start and wait 5 minutes for your firmware to update
  4. Reboot to download mode
    Run Odin press AP and select your recovery tar file
    Press Start and wait for the reboot.
  5. Copy the SuperSU insstaller zip to your sdcard.
  6. Reboot to recovery mode.
    Install SuperSU by selecting the zip.
    Reboot.
  7. Install BusyBox Installer.
    Install BusyBox. If it doesn't work, you don't have root.
  8. Install Android Terminal Emulator
  9. Extract recovery.img from the firmware tar.md5
    Copy to /sdcard
    Run this command (you can copy/paste it):
    su
    dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery
  10. Reboot the phone, reboot into recovery, then reboot into download mode, check that it says "Current binary: Samsung Official"
    Repeat these 3 reboots until it shows official. (NFC will work then)
  11. Extract the recovery.img from your recovery tar file to /sdcard
    Run this command (you can copy/paste it):
    su
    dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery
    Reboot to recovery to test that it installed.
  12. You should now be rooted with NFC and custom recovery.

Notes:
To get to download mode: hold power+home+vol down, while the phone reboots, then at the screen with Japanese text, press vol up.
To get to recovery mode: hold power+home+vol up, while the phone rebootsp.
When using Odin, ensure re-partition is unchecked.
Instructions - TWRP
You can find an alternate recovery in this post.

  2. Install the Xposed Installer.
  3. Open Xposed Installer, click Framework, click Install, reboot.

Lollipop Deodex Rom

I have created a deodexed Lollipop rom for the SC-01F.
It is pre-rooted, deodexed and Busybox is installed.
You don't have to wipe and you can go back to stock easily.
NFC is working.
Please download all the files in the SC-01F folder.

Guide: (This will trip knox)
  • Download all the files in the SC-01F folder.
  • Copy "SC-01F_Part2_System.zip" to your phone's SD card.
    Optional: Copy "XposedInstaller_3.0_alpha4.apk" and "xposed-v75-sdk21-arm-arter97-snapdragon_requestConcurrentGC.zip" too if you want Xposed Framework.
  • Reboot your phone into download mode and connect the USB cable.
  • Extract "Odin3_v3.10.7.zip" and run the program.
  • Press the "AP" button and select "SC-01F_Part1.tar"
  • Reboot into recovery mode.
  • Flash the "SC-01F_Part2_System.zip" from the SD card.
  • Optional: Flash "xposed-v75-sdk21-arm-arter97-snapdragon_requestConcurrentGC.zip" if you want Xposed.
  • Optional: Skip this step if you prefer a custom recovery over NFC.
    Reboot to download mode. Flash "SC-01F_Part3_OfficialRecovery.tar"
    Repeat this step until download mode shows official binary.
    You may have to pull the battery and cable mid flash to trigger the official check.
    You won't brick your phone from a bad recovery.img flash.
  • Done.

I'm a SEA Note 3 SM-N9005 user. Is there any way I can use Japanese language pack from DoCoMo version? I just switched from Xperia Z and noticed the missing language.

what are the supported bandwidth of the SC-02C model?

hmm... according to this
Code:
連続待受時間注意1注意2
(静止時) 	3G:約 470時間/LTE:約 410時間/GSM:約 380時間注意6注意7
連続通話時間注意2
(音声通話時) 	3G:約 1000分/GSM:約 860分
seems like only Japan frequencies

SimmoF,

Are you upgrading from the Note 2 (SC-02E)?

I still have a year to go on the SC-02E contract, I wonder if NTT Docomo offer an upgrade path?

I don't think its possible, without a huge amount of effort.

SC-02C is the Galaxy S2. Did you mean SC-01F?

Docomo uses its own frequencies, but their devices support a few standard frequencies when roaming, but you won't get to full speed.

I'm upgrading from the Galaxy S2.

I wouldn't upgrade, the way Docomo subsidize is by giving you a discount off your bill, every month, for 2 years. This works out to about 44000yen, if you stick the 2 years out.

Also differences aren't that great between the note 2 and 3, and they'll likely filter all the new touchwiz features into the new note 2 firmware.

Yeah. Cheers. I'll be sticking with the Note 2 which I'm very happy with.

I just upgraded from my American Note 2 (Verizon) I was using with a Docomo SIM. I'm loving it so far, but I know it could be much better if I had root (to remove bloatware, change a few things, add a few things, etc). I will post links in here if I confirm root methods and recoveries that work with this device.
