Download an actual FW. You probably downgraded your Baseband and this seems to be an no go. So flash your last or an newer FW and you should be back on the track. At least 4 me it solves the Problem without messing around with the Efs Partition.

Wrong information I'm afraid.. The Note 3 has the ability to rebuild the EFS if it does indeed get lost.

99 out of 100 times this works ^^

To add to this, once you have reflashed your firmware and if you still have no baseband use the firescript to repair the partition.

Use the Stock Firmware for the device. - Maybe try an Unbranded EU firmware and see. (it's possible there was a carrier firmware on it previously)

I didn't mean downgrade from 4.3 to 4.4...I mean the Baseband. For example from 4.4 E3 to 4.4 NB7...Why not just flash the latest UK F4 and see if it solves the Problem. What you've got to lose?
