Yes I was, throttled badly, even though they advertized differently. It was the Yodobashi house brand, but WirelessGate was the actual MVNO, using NTT DOCOMO. I actually went back to Yodobashi, and I can't say enough good about how they helped me out. Even though I had used the card for 3 weeks, they gave me my money back, and I bought one from IIJmio, the Japan Travel SIM. 2Gigs of data for up to 3 months for about 40$. They even said the WirelessGate ones were not performing well. With the IIJmio SIM, you don't even have to go online and register, don't have to give your credit card number, it was great. And fast, damn. I used up 200 meg in SpeedTests before I knew it! It peaked at 35Mbs down in downtown Tokyo. Really pleased; as long as you have LTE band 1 (2100) I'd recommend this card for people that will be in Japan for an extended time.
Thanks for the informative follow up! Great information for the rest of us

Indeed. Been a bit stagnant hereabouts. I speak to you from a time of software far removed from your own. Travel back with me, to the ancient year for two thousand and fourteen... The month is July. And that is the last month there ever will be.

Nope. gapps has to match your android version.

I do! I hate throwing stuff away and since I have two SC-06Ds here, I wanted to reflash the latest (lastest) WORKING custom rom on these devices. I'll be handing them down to my kids, so they'd stop borrowing my own device. The problem is, when clean flashing the last CARBON rom (07132014), the device won't boot. I have the CWM 6.0.5, btw. What could be the problem?

I can always revert back to stock 4.1.2 using ODIN and re-root everytime custom rom won't work so I know I'm not bricked.

Error

I try to compile by myself, once I success in July, but recently I faced an error as follow.
\
make: *** No rule to make target `/home/****/android/****/out/target/product/d2dcm/obj/STATIC_LIBRARIES/libminui_intermediates/export_includes', needed by `/home/****/android/****/out/target/product/d2dcm/obj/EXECUTABLES/healthd_intermediates/import_includes'. Stop.

I have no ideas on it, It seems somrthing was missing, but nowhere to add it back.

Any suggestion?

After seeing a few uploads online from KBC developers I checked twitter, and there has been some activity in the past six months. Sakuramilk occasionally makes a KBC build for devices he maintains for the Japanese android community, and I reached out to sakuramilk to see if he could reupload one of his CM 12.1 test builds from August. I'm downloading it now, no idea about stability, features, etc, and absolutely no guarantees or support from sakuramilk so don't bother him about it, but if someone else would like a download of it I'm happy to mirror it somewhere once it's finished.

Cool. Here's a quick upload of the 12.1 ROM port and the TWRP Recovery needed to flash it.

Of course normal rules apply: if you don't restore stock recovery you will lose FeLiCia functions, etc, and the ROM/recovery comes with no support implied by anyone.

ROM: https://www.sendspace.com/file/gsoy6l
Recovery: https://www.sendspace.com/file/6t6x6q

I flashed using Odin and had no issues. Build is very stable, with occasional reboots. But that could be because I installed Xposed. Either way it's stable enough for my needs.

Thank you for sharing the CM12.1 ROM! I flashed the 12.1 ROM and it seemed to worked OK except from a (major) problem -- it doesn't recognize the SIM card (I am using Y!Mobile).

Here is what I have done:
  1. Installed TWRP recovery with Odin
  2. Copied the CM12.1 ROM (cm-12.1-20150824-AOJP-d2dcm), GAPPS (open_gapps-arm-5.1-nano-20151213) and SuperSU (UPDATE-SuperSU-v2.46) to the miscroSD card.
  3. Booted into recovery (Home button + Volume up)
  4. Wiped all data except those on the microSD
  5. Installed CM12.1, GAPPS and SuperSU in that order
  6. Booted into Recovery and installed Stock Recovery (stock_recovery.tar.md5) with Odin
  7. Rebooted. Done.

Any clue why the SIM card is not recognized? Other than that everything seems to work fine.

Thanks!

ROM: cm-12.1-20150824-AOJP-d2dcm.zip
Recovery: SC06D-LP-KBC-TWRP-V2.8.7.0_r0-recovery-odin.tar.md5

I flashed using Odin and had no issues. Build is very stable, with occasional reboots. But that could be because I installed Xposed. Either way it's stable enough for my needs.

I'm having the same problem. I can't find any information online. I tried to reflash and also tried to reflash stock recovery, but it still doesn't recognize the sim. I also have tried to flash these modems
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=47400201&postcount=2455.
Bump as I am still using SC-06D as one of my phones(of course the backup one with a secondary phone number).
But a stable and more modern ROM is very much preferred and appreciated.

OK, here is an update. The rom it seems was created by sakuramilk (twitter.com/sakuramilk). According to sakuramilk the CM12 rom (cm-12.1-20151127-AOJP-d2dcm.zip) works only for Docomo SIMs.

See: i.imgur.com/goW8Ut8.jpg

Check: twitter.com/sakuramilk/status/670978609998340096

The CM11 rom (cm-11-20150506-AOJP-d2dcm) by sakuramilk seems to work (twitter.com/sakuramilk/status/595730328116944899) but the download link is broken.

Does anybody know where to download cm-11-20150506-AOJP-d2dcm.zip ?

Thanks for the feedback. I noticed that after you posted. I thought it was very strange I didn't receive any phone call all day :D.

I am using Y! Mobile.

I'm going back to an older version of CM11. It has problems with the camera, especially when recording video, but at least I can make and receive phone calls.

Hope that sakuramilk will release a new CM12 (or maybe CM13) rom that can work with our SIM cards.

OK, new update. I found a new CM13.0 rom (cm-13.0-20160213-AOJP-d2dcm) which is based on Android 6.01 and installed it on my phone. Everything seem to work fine except that it doesn't recognize my SIM (Y! Mobile) Most probably the rom works only for Docomo SIMs like the previous ROM from sakuramilk.

Here are the links to the required files if you want to test it on your phone:
  • SC-06D TWRP3.0.0-0: http://lawnfield.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-102.html
  • cm-13.0-20160213-AOJP-d2dcm: http://lawnfield.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-103.html
  • open_gapps-arm-6.0-stock-20160218: http://opengapps.org/?api=6.0&variant=stock

Please post results here.

It works normally.

But when I follow his steps to build by myself, it stuck in the android logo and not in the CM icon. Not the matter of the kernel but the system package.

I had the same problem with cm-11-20140305-UNOFFICIAL-d2dcm with a non-Japanese SIM. The "R" is only just an annoyance as it caused no problems whatsoever. Just ignore it.

What steps are you referring to?

Here are the steps I took:
  1. Installed TWRP recovery (SC-06D TWRP3.0.0-0) with Odin
  2. Copied the CM13.0 ROM (cm-13.0-20160213-AOJP-d2dcm), GAPPS (open_gapps-arm-6.0-stock-20160218) to the miscroSD card.
  3. Booted into recovery (Home button + Volume up)
  4. Wiped all data except those on the microSD
  5. Installed CM13.0 and GAPPS in that order
  6. Rebooted. Done.

    **** SC-03E Galaxy SIII "alpha" owners, DO NOT TRY THIS method as it will NOT work for the SC-03E. Unfortunately, the S3 "alpha" is a Japan only device, (quad core, LTE) and there is no similar hardware version available outside Japan yet.
    There are 2 members who have tried this method for SC-03E and both devices are hard bricked.

    A note about these instructions:
    They're long and may seem a little daunting to those that aren't experienced. Please don't let that deter you as they've been written to be as simple and easy to follow as is reasonably possible assuming you can work a Windows PC and extract a zip file.

    However, it's better if you are at least familiar with putting the phone into download mode or recovery mode and have rooted before. If this is your first time using download or recovery mode, please read about using it first. (the first link below is helpful)


    General Disclaimer:
    Use these tools and this guide at your own risk. Doing these things wrong/improperly/etc. has the ability to completely ruin your device and YOU assume all risk and responsibility if that happens.

    Also note that rooting WILL violate the manufacturers warranty on the device making it ineligible for warranty repair. If you have insurance on the device however, they MAY still replace it for the cost of your deductible.

    First, some good info how to use ODIN for flashing ROM's, etc (however, use OUR instructions here for using it for the SC-06D)
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1671969


    Now for the long detailed instructions, but please follow them VERY CAREFULLY.
    (note: pay attention to the part about UNCHECKING "Auto-reboot" and not allowing the device to boot into Android before flashing stock_recovery)

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Here is the source for all the ROOT and ROM info we have collected for the SC-06D from Docomo, included are the instructions.
    https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0B98X7HyfoaGaWEpscWdrdFZhbUE/edit

    Instructions for Rooting your Japanese SGS3(SC-06D)
    Verify that your phone has ‘Build Number: IMM76D.SC06DOMALK2 or earlier. You can see this by going to Settings > About phone > scroll to bottom. If it has build older than LK2, do an Update by scrolling back to the top and selecting System Updates.
    (this will insure you have the latest radio (baseband SC06DDOMALK2) in case you update to a custom ROM)


    I suggest downloading all the files first from the link onto your computers C:\ Create a folder there to put everything into.

    1. Load Samsung ADB Drivers onto your PC by going to the Drivers folder in this Google Drive and download the SGS3-Driver file in that folder. Follow the instructions that pop up when you run the driver file.

    2. Now that your PC can see your phone you should see SC-06D under Computer in Windows Explorer. In Windows, go to SC-06D and you should see Internal Storage and SD Card.(or Phone and Card). Open up Internal.(Phone) Copy and paste sgs3_rooting_supersu_v3 zip file from Google Drive Root - SuperUser folder.

    3. Open up the ODIN folder in Google Drive. Download the ODIN.zip file and place it in a file on your desktop, or wherever you can easily get to it. Once you have the files extracted, double click and run Odin3 v3.07. First thing you want to do is *** UNCHECK AUTO REBOOT!!** You should see “0:[COM#]”(the # should be a number) in the ID:COM box right above the Auto Reboot. If you do not see anything in the ID:COM box then ODIN does not see your phone and you might have to reload the drivers, or try to restart your computer. You can not go any further until you see something in that ID:COM box.

    4. On your phone, reboot the phone. while it is rebooting, hold down the Vol Down + Home buttons. You can release the buttons once some Japanese text comes up. Just hit the Vol Up button to clear the text. (Vol Down means "Cancel") The screen should now have some text in the top left corner and show the Android robot with the words “Downloading.. Do not turn off target!!”. If you do not get to this screen and end up back into Android, try again.

    5. In ODIN (again, verify that AUTO REBOOT is unchecked) click the PDA box in the middle of ODIN. Go to the Google Drive folder called ClockWorkMod Recovery and pick SC06D-ICS-KBC-CWM-V6.0.1.2_r1-recovery-odin.tar.md5. (or latest version in folder). You should see the file loaded in the box to the right of the PDA box and it will be checked. Click the Start button at the bottom of ODIN. You should see some stuff happening in the big box in the top left of ODIN. Wait for it to say “RESET”.

    6. *** READ THIS STEP COMPLETELY BEFORE DOING ANYTHING TO THE PHONE!!*** Unplug your phone. Hold the power button down, once it goes black QUICKLY press and hold the Vol Up + Home buttons to take you directly into Recovery Mode. (DO NOT LET IT BOOT INTO ANDROID!)

    7. You should now be in Recovery Mode. You should see an orange circle with a hat on it in the middle of the screen. This is ClockWorkMod(CWM) Recovery Mode. Use the Vol Up and Vol Down buttons to move the highlight bar up and down and the Power button to select. Go to “Install zip from SD Card” and then “Choose zip from SD Card”. Look for the sgs3_rooting_supersu_v3.zip file that you loaded in step 3. You should be asked if you really want to do this, move the highlight bar down and select “Yes..”

    8. *** READ THIS STEP COMPLETELY BEFORE DOING ANYTHING TO THE PHONE!!*** After the zip file as loaded, it shouldn’t take but a few seconds, highlight and use “***go back***” until you are back at the top menu. You should see “reboot system now”. Be ready to put the phone back into Download Mode again by holding the Vol Down + Home buttons. Again, you have to be quick with this and don’t let the phone go into Android.

    note: if you skip this next step and choose to keep CWM recovery installed instead of the stock_recovery, then many of the SC-06D's functions will not work. The stock_recovery MUST be flashed/installed everytime before booting into Android.

    9. Plug your phone back into your PC. Open ODIN back up, if its not still open, If it is still open hit the RESET button. You should still see “0:[COM#]” in the ID:COM box saying ODIN sees your phone. *** UNCHECK AUTO REBOOT!!** Click the PDA box again, just like you did in Step 6. This time you will load up stock_recovery.tar.md5 file from the Google Drive folder Stock Recovery. Make sure that the file is in the box to the right of PDA and that its checked. Click the Start button at the bottom of ODIN. Wait for the box at the top left to say RESET.

    10. You can now reboot your phone and let it go all the way into Android. You are now Rooted!

    Once you are back into Android, you can check and make sure you have SU(superuser) and open up Camera, "Osaifu-Keitai", install EDY (or ID, or Suica, etc) check that they work, they should be fine though.
    (note: if at any point you let the phone boot into Android by mistake while CWM recovery was still flashed, then you will find some hardware functions on the phone will be broken, the ONLY way we know how to fix this, is to re-install stock ROM and start over)


    If you don't care about custom ROM's, then that's it. You are done! EVERYTHING will work at this point. OneSeg, Felica, Wifi, camera, LTE, hotspot, etc...

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    OPTIONAL

    *** UPDATE ***

    While you are still on stock ROM, if you would like to SIM UNLOCK your SC-06D, the instructions in this thread, have been verified to work on our stock Touchwiz ROM phone. (it won't work if you have a custom ROM like CM9 or CM10 installed)

    Confirmed, it will retain the SIM UNLOCK after a custom ROM flashing!!

    So now is the perfect time to SIM unlock your SC-06D!



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Instructions for loading Kernels and ROMs
    If you DO want to try a ROM or kernel, (I have Sakuramilks CM9(ROM) and kernel on Google Drive) then download the files and extract them. Be aware that the Japanese SGS3’s are not like the ones in the states or other countries, so load other ROMs and Kernels at your own risk. We can only verify that the ROM and kernel i've provided will work on our phones. Open up you phone in Windows Explorer and put the downloaded files into Internal Storage on your phone. You can just put them in the top most level, no need to place them in any special folder or anything. The following steps will be for Sakuramilk’s files, just replace your ROM zip and Kernel zip files. You can use the Google Apps zip from the Google Drive if you want.

    !!!ALL YOUR DATA WILL BE LOST IF YOU DO THIS SO BE SURE TO DO A BACKUP!!!
    (follow Steps 4, 5, 6, ONLY then choose full back up, run a back up which takes a while, then follow steps 8 and 9 to reflash stock_recovery before booting back into Android)

    1. In this example we will be using Sakuramilk’s CM9 ROM and kernel.
    UPDATE: we try to keep the latest Kernel updates included, so the file names may be slightly different for the date.
    They can be found in Google Drive folders Kernel and Sakuramilk CM9 ROM. Copy SC06D-ICS-KBC-20120826-AOSP.zip and cm-9-20120815-SKRMLK-d2dcm.zip files into the top level of Internal Storage on your phone. If you want to pre-load all the Google apps go ahead and load gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip into the Internal Storage along with the other two zip files.

    2. Just like what you did in the Root instructions. Open up the ODIN folder in Google Drive. Double click and run Odin3 v3.07. *** UNCHECK AUTO REBOOT!!** You should see “0:[COM#]”(the # should be a number) in the ID:COM box right above the Auto Reboot. If you do not see anything in the ID:COM box then ODIN does not see your phone and you might have to reload the drivers, or try to restart your computer. You can not go any further until you see something in that ID:COM box.

    3. On your phone, reboot the phone. while it is rebooting, hold down the Vol Down + Home buttons. You can release the buttons once some Japanese text comes up. Just hit the Vol Up button to clear the text. The screen should now have some text in the top left corner and show the Android robot with the words “Downloading.. Do not turn off target!!”. If you do not get to this screen and end up back into Android, try again

    4. In ODIN (again, verify that AUTO REBOOT is unchecked) click the PDA box in the middle of ODIN. Go to the Google Drive folder called ClockWorkMod Recovery and pick SC06D-ICS-KBC-CWM-V6.0.1.2_r1-recovery-odin.tar.md5. You should see the file loaded in the box to the right of the PDA box and it will be checked. Click the Start button at the bottom of ODIN. You should see some stuff happening in the big box in the top left of ODIN. Wait for it to say “RESET”.

    5. *** READ THIS STEP COMPLETELY BEFORE DOING ANYTHING TO THE PHONE!!*** Unplug your phone. Hold the power button down, once it goes black QUICKLY press and hold the Vol Up + Home buttons to go directly into Recovery Mode. (DO NOT LET IT BOOT INTO ANDROID!)

    6. You should now be in Recovery Mode. You should see an orange circle with a hat on it in the middle of the screen just like when you were rooting the phone. Use the Vol Up and Vol Down buttons to move the highlight bar up and down and the Power button to select. Select “wipe data/factory reset” after its complete, select “wipe cache partition”. You will then need to go into the “advanced” menu. From there you will “wipe delvik cache” and “wipe battery stats”. Now go back to the main menu and select ‘Apply update from SD Card” and then go to “choose zip from sdcard “. This should bring up a list of folders and files on your internal storage. At the bottom look for the file “SC06D-ICS-KBC-20120826-AOSP-boot-signed.zip” and hit the power button to load that. After that is done loading pick and load the file “cm-9-20120815-SKRMLK-d2dcm.zip”. After both of those have loaded, load ”gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip”.

    7. *** READ THIS STEP COMPLETELY BEFORE DOING ANYTHING TO THE PHONE!!*** After you have installed the three zip files, use the “*** go back ***” menus until you are all the way at the top menu. Select “reboot system now”. Be ready to put the phone back into Download Mode again by holding the Vol Down + Home buttons. You should see the Android robot and the “Downloading.. Do not turn off target!!”

    8. Plug your phone back into your PC. Open ODIN back up, if its not still open, If it is still open hit the RESET button that is next to the START button. You should still see “0:[COM#]” in the ID:COM box saying ODIN sees your phone. *** UNCHECK AUTO REBOOT!!** Click the PDA box again, just like you did in Step 6. This time you will load up stock_recovery.tar.md5 file from the Google Drive folder Stock Recovery. Make sure that the file is in the box to the right of PDA and that its checked. Click the Start button at the bottom of ODIN. Wait for the box at the top left to say RESET.

    Reboot into Android and ENJOY!!!

    As long as you reflash the stock_recovery after your custom ROM or kernels, everything should work fine.

    **** UPDATE *****

    AWESOME Find from "creaturecool"

    A world of possibilities has arrived. The following is a guide to using the ROM conversion tool created by Homura. Original Japanese post here.

    With this tool, you will be able to convert ROMs meant for T-mobile (model number: SGH-T999) and AT&T (SGH-I747) versions of the S3 for use on the sc-06d (docomo SIII).


    As usual before doing anything make a Nandroid back-up! Anything you do to your phone you do at your own risk!

    1. Download the tool here. Unzip it.

    2. Find compatible ROM in one of the following forums
    WARNING: ONLY USE T-MOBILE (d2tmo) or AT&T (d2att) Galaxy S3 ROMs, doing otherwise will leave you with a brick!!

    IMPORTANT: You can NOT convert touchwiz-based Jelly Bean roms.
    You can convert AOSP-based Jelly Bean roms (CM10, AOKP, Liquidsmooth, ParanoidAndroid, etc.).
    You can convert touchwiz-based ICS roms, and AOSP roms.

    (I chose this Liquidsmooth rom)

    AT&T Galaxy S III Original Android Development
    AT&T Galaxy S III Android Development
    T-Mobile Galaxy S III Original Android Development
    T-Mobile Galaxy S III Android Development

    Should you choose an ICS rom, your One-seg and Osaifu-keitai should remain in working order.
    For Jelly Bean roms, these features will be lost. LTE will depend on the rom you choose and will be up to you to determine whether it is functioning or not.

    3. Place T-mobile/AT&T S3 rom into the tool folder. The folder should be unzipped, and called make_JP_CompleteROM_SC06D.

    4. Once placed in the folder, run make_JP_CompleteROM.cmd. Next a command prompt window will pop up as shown below.

    _______________________________________
    Press "1" if the rom is an aosp-based ICS rom.
    Press "2" if the rom is an aosp-based Jellybean rom.
    Press "3" if the rom is a touchwiz based ICS rom.
    Press "0" to exit.
    _______________________________________

    Next, a lot of green text should appear. That's good, it's working! It should take about a minute, and then prompt you with white text saying "Press any key to continue..."
    Your freshly converted rom will be called JP_SC06D_JB_Complete.zip or JP_SC06D_ICS_Complete.zip and should be in the same directory.

    If you get red text, make sure that you have cleared the directory of any previous roms you have cooked (ie. any "JP_SC06D_JB_Complete.zip" or "JP_SC06D_ICS_Complete.zip" you may have converted earlier).


    5. Take your newly created JP_SC06D_JB_Complete.zip or JP_SC06D_ICS_Complete.zip and flash it as you normally would with the SC-06d. Don't forget your Gapps!
    You don't need to flash stock recovery unless you use an ICS rom and care about Felica and Mobile TV.

    Enjoy!!!:laugh:

    btw, I highly recommend the LiquidSmooth rom. So far everything is great and it has even more customization options than the CM10 and AOKP roms we have so far. The only downside I've found is that the charging battery LED doesn't work (it's a problem with the original LS rom, workaround).
    Edit: Get the sc-06d Liquid Smooth Rom here. (Flash as is, no conversion necessary.)

    Cooked ROMs

    I have recently cooked several ROMs (just testing them out to see which one I like best) so wanted to share them here.

    The roms can be downloaded here... https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0B_5PXHyDlMBRWXRIMkxUM05rRzQ/edit?usp=sharing

    Included are :
    Carbon ROM (http://goo.im/devs/carbon)
    PAC ROM (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2015607)
    Vanilla Rootbox ROM (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2083922)

    To flash the Roms.

    It is recommended to revert to stock and update your device first so you are running the latest baseband and download and flash the newest version of CWM (You can get it here https://dl.dropbox.com/u/63613486/S...tal/SC06D-JB-KBC-CWM-V6.0.1.2_r15-recovery.7z)

    1. Do a Factory Reset, Cache wipe, Dalvik wipe and Battery Stats wipe in CWM
    2. Flash the Rom
    3. Flash the latest kernel from Sakuramilk (https://github.com/kbc-developers/release/wiki/sc06d)
    4. Flash GAPPS (http://goo.im/gapps)

    If you have Data connectivity problems (wether it be Wifi or LTE/3G) I have found only one workaround that works albeit it takes a bit of time

    You will only have to do the first three steps once...

    1. Download and flash the latest version of CM10.1 from Sakuramilk (don't forget your GAPPS)
    2. Set up your phone and let it redownload your Apps from the market, etc
    3. Make a nandroid backup in CWM (Back up to external)

    4. Reboot to recovery
    5. Do a Factory Reset, Cache wipe, Dalvik wipe and Battery Stats wipe in CWM
    6. Flash your Nandroid Backup (Restore from external)
    7. DO NOT DO A FACTORY RESET HERE
    8. Wipe your Cache partition, Dalvic and Battery stats
    9. Flash the ROM
    10. Flash the latest kernel from Sakuramilk (https://github.com/kbc-developers/release/wiki/sc06d)
    11. Flash GAPPS (http://goo.im/gapps)
    12. Reboot your device

    I have tested all the ROMS and have had no issues whatsoever with the above method albeit it's cheating a bit as it's just retaining the connectivity settings from Sakuramilk's ROM

    Hope you enjoy the ROMs and maybe someone smarter then I will chime in with an easier fix for the connectivity issues.

    Lastly I'd like to say a very special thanks to cezeff, this has been a learning curve for me and without his insights and help I would have never been able to figure any of this out

    F-YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IT WORKS!!!!! THE SOUND IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    After flashing that last kernel that Homura made is just like a micro seconds everything is back to normal!!! THEY ROCK!!!!!

    I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!!! I screamed so loud when I heard my voice on the video that my entire family went up to see what was going on LOL!!!

    CONFIRMED on carbon 30th!!!

    He also talked about the new Conversion tool, where is it? -> I just downloaded the cooker with the same link, maybe he just updated the file without updating the actual post - Cooking the 30th right now

    Finished cooking and flashed the 30th - The kernel says 3.4.51 0701 BUT there's something I actually never got a chance to test. IF you have the latest kernel already installed (I flashed it before re-flashing the new cooked rom) maybe it doesn't overwrite it and leave the latest.....I dunno...Anyway I'm uploading it to my dropbox right now and will make a new post with the download link as soon as it is done!

    ---------- Post added at 10:26 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:38 PM ----------

    Here is latest Nightly from Carbon - 30th - Included is the latest kernel 3.4.51 (Hopefully...read above)

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/zz9tldh93ezafaf/CARBON-0630-SC06D-RD.zip

    As usual you can check the changelog to know what's new:
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Zcp6iVWVw_7iH-ErnKgkYy3r5QuqV8PHFoQMb8hoBwQ/mobilebasic

    Enjoy and happy flashing!

    CARBON Nightly 06-11 WITH HALO!!

    Here is the latest nightly and now HALO is included in it!

    https://www.box.com/s/p1toj9p2hjd38jsdbinr

    To give more details, the blacklist system is to decide whether or not you want the Halo ball to notify you with the app in question. Go into the a
    App Manager and check the halo blacklist if you don't want anymore notification from that app. I read that it doesn't always work but again it is a NIGHTLY...

    I haven't experience one single UI error on that one and the benchmark test was excellent!

    Enjoy!

    Don't forget to thanks ;)

    ok...well the wifi tethering doesnt seem to work..but the bluetooth tethering works fine....on my macbook i just had to renew the DCHP lease and the bluetooth tethering works just fine....i know you need to use tethering for your job....so if bluetooth is fine for now then i would say give it shot....plus the 4.2.1 improvements are nice...a working camera and photosphere, Daydream, the new notifications panel, etc etc...ill post a link to my Drive for anyone that wants to try it....just download the cooked ROM, kernel, and the gapps....put them on your sd card...do a full wipe...flash the rom..then gapps...then the kernel and reboot and you should be good to go.....let me know what you guys think....this is yet another way for us to get 4.2 ROMs ported over to the sc-06d until/unless someone makes a new cooker....( all the credit and hard work goes to the respective developers of the ROMs, cooker and kernel)

    original page of the cooked ROM:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1766684 (4.2 gapps can be downloaded from that thread too)

    the 4.2 kernel from KBC Developers
    https://github.com/kbc-developers/release/wiki/SC06D

    the ROM after its been cooked for the SC-06D
    https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B06L494jdQAlNVlaaEN5S0JQdDg/edit

    let me know if you guys have any questions....and hit that "Thanks" if you like it...
