You have corrupted one or more partitions, try a factory reset after flashing your custom rom again.

If that doesn't work then use Odin to flash a stock firmware, then factory reset.

Go read the sticky thread in general forum, you are missing basic information.

Means you screwed the efs partition when flashing an incompatible modem with your efs version.

If you flashed a 4.1.2 firmware and got that error, try and flash a mg4 or above modem to see if it gets solved. Or flash a 4.3 firmware altogether.

Read rootSU post on efs, it's a must.

Of you ever backed up your efs or used twrp recovery to make a nandroid backup (which also backs up efs) you might get it back by restoring it.

Otherwise, a patched kernel, modem or ariza patch would be the last available choice before sending to repair.

I mean, go to the stickies in the general section and read. They're there for a reason, including steps before rooting, flashing, information on the efs partition, and pretty much everything else you could have done to avoid the situation you're facing right now.
