Unhappy [Q] From Official 4.3 I9300XXUGMK6-DBT to AOSP/AOKP


I had problems with my EFS folder and IMEI.

Now i got it all back and running the Official Android 4.3 Firmware I9300XXUGMK6-DBT

But now i want to go back to custom roms ( Paranoidandroid ).

With the update to EMG4 Android changed the EFS folder.
That was the problem why i lost my IMEI.

What can i do, to get custom roms back !?

Everytime i flash ParanoidAndroid i dont get MobileNetworks.

Hi mate ! Wrong section but i'll try to help you.

I read again your post, so, i guess you can simply flash an EMG4 modem !

^Try this before this :

I'll make it quick, and if you don't understand, i'll develop. Also, i apologize for my bad english.

1 ; Delete your EFS folder
2 ; Reboot in recovery, connect your mobile to the computer.
3 ; On your computer, start an ADB session and type, in the exact order the following commands :
adb remount
adb shell
mke2fs /dev/block/mmcblk0p3
mount -w -t ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p3 /efs

Once it's done, reboot your phone and check if your IMEI is back. If not, reflash an EMG4 modem and restart your smartphone.

Let me know how it's going, PM me if you want, or, you can add me on Skype ; Orath. (Don't forget the dot )
My devices :

Xperia Arc
iPhone 4S Black
Samsung Galaxy S3
