Thanks a lot Black, you are so helpful. I have successfully matched the hashes of the file I downloaded previously with the copy you shared. So I am quite sure the bootloader files should be correct.

I have packed the files into a tar file. After reaching home, I would select this bootloader tar as Bootloader and the Official 2.3.6 ROM (downloaded from https://sites.google.com/site/sc05dwiki/stockrom) as PDA to try again. Thanks!
----------------------------------------------------------

Odin failed in flashing those bootloader files with showing the following message. I have tried to remove aboot.mbn from the tar but same message with file name changed is shown. Seems that Odin's protocol is not allowed to write on BootLoader area... Any suggestion to boot in QHSUSB_DLOAD mode would be appreciated.

Sorry, but I'm don't know about flashing bootloaders well...
And also I don't know how to boot on the QHSUSB_DLOAD mode forcefully...

softbank APN setting for stock JellyBean SC-05D

hello,

im kinda lost right now, i return my SC-05D to stock 4.1.2 jellybean from docomo because of several bugs using custom ROM (a lot of thanks @blackzigong).

1. i will be using simcard from softbank iphone 4, so can anyone could share their APN setting? thanks in advance
2. does anyone know how to root the newly updated JB stock ROM for our SC-05D?
3. how to make MMS work this time. Before when running ICS, i manage to make it work by replacing stock ICS MMS.apk with modified one and creat APN setting for that..

hope you could help me guys...

Hey darkcupid,

I've tried to flash CWM on to my SC05d using Odin 1.85 and that didn't work. when i boot into recovery, it isn't CWM. then I tried it with Odin 3.07. I've updated to ICS then Jelly Bean with this phone and now I'm thinking of rooting it. any ideas on how i can get CWM on here?

Hey babunxxx,

Like I said, using my windows vista desktop, I plugged my galaxy note sco5d into my computer and turned it on to download mode. I opened up Odin 1.85 and flashed CWM. I restarted and then I got stock android recovery. I tried the same thing again with Odin 3.07. It said success and I still got android recovery. I tried this process again on my Windows 7 laptop with Odin 1.85 and it didn't work. (Screenshot attached) and I also tried Odin 3.07, but this time it said it worked (screenshot attached). When I rebooted into recovery, it was not CWM.

Am I doing something wrong? I feel like I followed all the steps. Maybe for some reason my bootloader is locked? does anyone recommend trying this manually via adb shell?

I'm surprised to say that I like the new stock JB rom from DOCOMO. it's not as snappy as CyanogenMod (CM10 is still my top stable rom), I'll give you that (those unnecessary bloatwares from the carrier, perhaps), but it's a big improvement over the ICS era. Granted it only support 3 languages for the UI, so, naturally, lots of people are going to loath it as much as they want. I even tolerate the presence of Touchwiz; it has much improved, and to have touch-to-focus back for stock camera app has edged me to like that piece of ****e. Battery-wise it's still early day, but 1-2% drain per hour on wifi is good news.

No issue the mic in phone call, no more mediascan issue, bluetooth seems to be working fine, SD card mounts, camera works, S-Pen is proper S-Pen, they even throw in the eye tracking gimmick as debut in GS4 (which seems to work, for the limited amount of time I've tested). Sigh, I've gone over to the dark side.

The rom provided by Sammobile is non-wipe, i.e. your data will survive the Odin flash (i used Odin v1.85, flash file in pda; download needs to be unzip once to reveal the rom file). Sounds good initially, until some old apps started to quarrel with the stock rom, and I keep getting FC from some gapp processes (some old remnants from a previous CM10.1, i presume), so I just reset and clear cache in stock recovery mode. had TB backup on sd card, but I prefer ADB backup these days; just too lazy to root, yeah, it's just me.:eek:

brick under-recovered

It's probably not the eMMC brick bug because it won't recognized as QHSUSB_DLOAD if it is.
Just seems partitions are broken. (It's fix-able reading my unbrick tutorial.)
Anyway we should use CWM by sakuramilk as a precaution.

My phone died of now apparent reason, being left to charge overnight with the galaxy tab1 wall charger. It does seem to have more voltage than the original charger for the galaxy note, but I have used it for weeks before without any problem.

Now I cannot boot in any mode. I did follow the tutorial, and I have it recognized as QHSUSB_DLOAD, and it is in the download mode and "writable" - but the emmc download fails with "cookie not received" message; I have tried several combinations of drivers in compatibility mode and without it. Does that mean that the inner flash memory is toast and is not really writable?

Also, could it be still readable? If it is, it'd be a bad idea to take a custom rom to the service center.

I don't know how to resolve it well, but it seems to be eMMC Software Download problem.
Did you download brixfixv1, extract it and set the "Search path 2 section" accurately?
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=42586820&postcount=449

I don't know it's still readable if emmc is broken...
There is the possibility that Samsung (docomo) has a tool that can read a specific inner flash memory.

Yep, the brixfixv1 is there, and the path is right. I guess I'll have to take it to some non-docomo service center...

Anyone thinks the multitasking sucks? Too many bloatwares and useless services run simultaneously causing apps to be killed and restarted. Getting rooted and uninstalling those docomo and samsung apps might help a little bit. I still love the multitasking on CM10.1 roms but after couples of day use, my phone gets random restart and fuzzy TV screen effect so i have to get back to the stock rom. Anyway i totally agree with you about those improvements in the new stock rom. The battery life is good, i can use my phone all day with the wifi on. :)

    Just when you think CM9 port is interesting and neat, the brilliant Japanese developers @sakuramilk and friends brought us Jelly bean on SC05D, the CM10 nightly. All credits to them. Thanks to Blackzigong as well for providing detailed instructions and addition guide to mod SC05d (in Japanese; Google translate is your friend).

    Disclaimer: Flashing any roms in your device is risky. No one forces you to do it but yourself, so please don't blame anyone if it failed. Always backup your device before you proceed!

    Anyway, here's what you need:
    1. CWM-based Galaxy Note Recovery V6 (make certain it's the "V6.0.1.2_r12" package; any other CWM recoveries are potentially lethal). It's touch enabled, so cursor bar can be controlled by swiping the screen up or down, the same is for click. the "back" button works although it doesn't light up. A new version (V6.0.1.2_r13) is available from Sakuramilk's website, which should fix the long delay in reboot.
    2. Odin3 v1.85 or v3.04.
    3. CM10 JP Remix for SC-05D (10/11/2012 nightly); go to this page for the latest nightly [remember, Jelly bean (4.1) is CM10, while Ice cream sandwich (4.0) is CM9].
    4. Gapps package for Jelly bean 4.1.x (Make sure you have the right Gapps package for your rom, if you have downloaded CM10 rom, then get Gapps package for JB 4.1.x; if CM9 rom, then Gapps package for ICS 4.0.3-4.)
    5. (optional) Fix for SC05D compass and accelerometer. (Thanks blackzigong for the file; this patch has now been incorporated to the built since Nightly 20121114, so you don't need this fix file if you have downloaded the latest nightly.)
    6. (optional) TweakGNTLTE. App to tweak CPU and lot more stuffs. Written by Sakuramilk.

    Prerequisites:
    1. Backup (Titanium backup, Nandroid, whatever you like).
    2. Write down the APN setting (I found my phone failed to receive setting from carrier; APN is found under Setting, Wireless & networks, more, Mobile networks, Access Point Names; to get the automatic APN setting working you'll need the updated apn-conf.xml file, and i have provided another guide here.)
    3. (optional) if you use nova launcher, backup setting.
    4. (unnecessary) call all your friends and tell them what you're going to do to your phone. Explain to them it's ok if they can't reach you on mobile for the next few days. :) (chaps, it's just a joke!)

    Procedures:
    1. Flash CWM-V6.0.1.2_r12 recovery using Odin3 (put in "PDA"; don't forget to unzip the package with 7zip before flashing).
    2. Boot into recovery mode.
    3. the recommended sequence: Factory reset, then flash CM10, followed by Gapps, clear cache, and finally reboot (there is a delay for reboot if you use CWM-V6.0.1.2_r12, don't worry if that happens.) When the phone booted, sign in google account and services, then restore apps and data with titanium backup. If the phone can make call but unable to get onto data network, you'll need to manually create a new APN profile with the APN setting you have copied down earlier. Save the setting and that should do the job (though sometimes it needs to toggle in and out of aeroplane mode to reset radio and force the phone to recognise new APN setting.) This is the recommended procedure. If you have issues with big drain on battery a factory reset is necessary.

    (for those who're already using CM9 port from sakuramilk: just flash CM10 over CM9, clear cache, and reboot; if apps FC, try clear data; if FC presists, uninstall and reinstall. I had to reinstall Gmail, Play music and Google Drives in my run. I have had issues with battery drain by dirty flashing newer nightly over older one, and I had to factory reset and clear all data to fix it.)


    What doesn't work?
    1. Touch to focus is missing (I may have a solution for you, though it involves a paid app and some tweaking of developer setting; see "more bonus track".)
    2. S-note, S-memo, S-planner, all missing (they are NOT part of AOSP, and they need touchwiz framework to work.); s-pen does work (thanks mlhope!)
    3. TV function doesn't work.

    What does work?
    Apart from those mentioned in previous section, everything else works. I'm in Europe where LTE has just launched and is probably not compatible with the system being deployed in Japan, so I can't tell if LTE is functional. For those in Japan, do let us know.

    What's new?
    for Jelly bean 4.1.2:
    1. Camera app and gallery are now one app. Swapping camera screen will bring up filmstrips of images taken previously.
    2. Google Now (Opt-in service)
    3. New layout for notification. Supported apps (Gmail, for example) will have expandable notification.
    4. New liveliness check for face unlock.
    5. Android beam now support image files (via gallery) and video files to beam between devices running jelly bean (previously you can only beam hyperlinks from browser or phone numbers from contact).
    Follow this link to see the full list of goodies of Jelly bean.
    for CM10:
    Customization of hardware home button and menu button. Volume rocker to wake is a useful way to save a dodgy power button.
    Customization of battery icon, clock. just to name a few.


    What do i think of this CM10 port? (Since nightly 20121121)
    1. Just as smooth as CM9 - stutter once or twice, but animation is buttery smooth, (project butter, no doubt.)
    2. All is good. Do I miss S-memo and S-note? A little bit, but I can live without them as long as the phone/tablet/phalet runs smoothly.

    Odd ball: screen capture failed to work in one occasion very early on. unmounting sd card and remounting solved that (though why an operation to mount SD card can solve a problem of saving screenshots into internal memory is a mystery to me).

    Bonus tracks: got the zip for new camera app for Jelly bean 4.2? flash it, and,in principle, it will work (still missing touch to focus, well, don't we just love samsung's support to the android platform and AOSP! New clock app for Jelly bean 4.2 needs a bit more work to get everything working. Flask package using CWM. once booted, you'll need to rename DeskClock.apk (use CM FileManager, and enable root mode) found in system/app to DeskClock.old, then rename DeskClockGoogle.apk to DeskClock.apk. You can skip this step if you don't need the alarm function of the new clock app. There is a bug at notification, and it's unlikely to get fixed as it requires Jelly bean 4.2 framework. If you've modified the new clock app, you'll need to re-flash and rename file after flashing a new nightly of CM10 as the old file gets written over.

    More bonus track: miss the trusty old "touch to focus" for your camera app? the recently updated Camera Zoom Fx has brought that function back to SC05D. There is a caveat, i'm afraid, that this app is a PAID app (though it's on 50% sale at the moment, grab one while you can). And there is another bigger caveat, i'm more afraid to say, that this app doesn't play ball with HW overlay in CM10 loaded SC05D. To get round it you'll need to disable HW overlays (found under setting, developer options, drawing, disable HW overlays), or the app wouldn't work properly. I haven't encountered major problem with HW overlays disabled, though scrolling and swiping appeared to be more jerky; i have only just started using my phone with that option disabled, plus i never tried to play 1080p clips on my phone, so i may not have the full picture. For playing clips on youtube, it's fine for both low-res and HQ videos. But, hey, I value touch to focus quite highly on the list of things i want to have in my phone, so i'm bias. Give it a whirl, it's only beer money.

    NB: Blackzigong has provided a detailed guide to reset flash counter. Doing so is at your own risk!
    2
    Power off your phone. Now press and hold volume up and volume down buttons. Press and hold power button. The phone will power on and the "galaxy note" with progress bar will show. This is the moment to release the power button. A moment later the screen will refresh with CMW recovery logo. Once booted into recovery you can release the volume buttons as well.

    Btw, if what you want is to root you phone and stay on stock Samsung rom, you can refer to this post for the Odin flashable files(http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=32881013). The guide you quoted is for replacing stock rom with a third party rom (though IMHO much better then what Samsung has offered, with better support from the community).

    Alternative method is to enable USB debug and boot using the command "adb reboot recovery". It requires a computer with drivers installed for sc05d, and you'll need adb from google developer website. I know this is a lot of preparation for just getting to recovery, but it's well worth the preparation as you can push and pull files between phone and computer, and you can do adb backup and restore.

    Root and Custom Kernel

    I've managed to upgrade to ICS - for some reason it didn't work over-the-air but was able to install it through Samsung Kies.

    Anyway, I've also managed to root my SC-05D and install a custom Kernel which has definitely improved the smoothness and general operation of the phone. The custom kernel also comes with the benefit of a slight overclock which you can set in an app like SetCpu, etc. Haven't found any custom ROMs as of yet, though...from what I've read, there aren't any at the moment. I had written up step-by-step on how to do it, but XDA won't let me place links in my message since I'm "new." Gahhh...:mad::mad::crying:

    Interesting, didnt know this was possible. So you claim that you can do the SIM unlock by just bringing some DoCoMo handset, without them checking if you are the actual person who had signed the contract for that particular handset?
    Maybe i would try this, but my experience with Softbank in this kind of matters does not make me a believer...

    I ment alternative or non-stock kernel/firmware for the Korean model. Something by the community...

    Yes, that is what I am claiming and that is what I did. You can see also here http://www.nttdocomo.co.jp/english/support/procedure/simcard/unlock_dcm/index.html . ---"If line subscriptions for DOCOMO cannot be confirmed, the identification of the person who applies is required."

    I was afraid too that they would require purchase receipt or something, and I also don't know Japanese much. But luckily I didn't need to explain anything :)

    Sorry, I don't know any other community based firmware :(
