Run kies then go to Tool > Firmware Upgrade and Installation

Follow the on screen instructions, this should completely reset the phone to a working condition.

I prefer Odin over Kies any day. It's better for flashing imo.

Point is, I can use stock 4.3 rom without any problems, but my issue is that I can no longer change to non-TW roms, esp KK.

Gonna try this now. I'm aiming for KK roms, so I guess Ariza won't help me here.

PS: I can get stock 4.3 without any problems. The signal problem occurs in non-TW roms only. I wanted signal on a 4.4-based rom.

Tried it, doesn't work

can you tell me what error is thrown????


(i) you have CWM r8?
(i) download a cwm flashable MG4 Modem, looks like your phone has an EFS issue (had this issue once).

I don't get any signal on KitKat roms. IMEI is empty and baseband is unknown in "About" section. That is my issue.

Stock 4.3 works fine for me

I've tried MG4 and MK6 modem and restoring efs via Philz Recovery 6.07.9 but no luck. I get a network signal that keeps dropping most of the time. This is strange because I haven't come across this problem before. Everytime I have to flash stock via Odin.

I need to find out why this happens so I can help others if they have the same issue.

EFS is ok and not damaged at all. The problem is that the system can't read the EFS, but I can't figure out what I need to do to get it to work.

[SOLVED]

Problem: Upgraded to official 4.3 and since then I have not been able to get network signals on 4.4-based roms. Stock 4.3 works fine.

Solution: Installed stock 4.1.2 (even though people said it doesn't work). Lost my signal and IMEI became 0049. Then I installed the patched MG4 modem and got imei and signal back. Then upgraded to Resurrection Remix rom (without GApps first) and still had signal.
