Unhappy [Q] I9300 imei issue

hello i have an issue with my IMEI on the samsung galaxy s3 i9300, i restored a rom from another phone with TWRP recovery and the EFS was ticked. and that's when the problem started and after that i flashed 4.3 rom on it but nothing happed, I also tried installing different modems, go back to stock firmware, but when i tried to use QPST or NV reader/writer i was not able to connect the phone in serial mode, only modem would show up. also if i try to put *#7284# i do not get the qualcomm USB settings so i tried doing it with the quickshortcut but when ever i click on the RMNET+ DM + MODEM it automatically goes on MTP. I went trhough older threads. they did not work at all

Restoring an efs from another phone is illegal as you are attempting to alter the imei, Samsung have obviously prevented this.

If you have the phone's original efs backup, from before you restored the twrp backup, then I'd suggest you use it.

This thread will probably be locked by a moderator.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Pretty sure kies won't backup the efs, but worth a try -there is no other way to fix efs than a service centre.
