There is a small chance that the efs folder might be corrupted.

You can install a custom recovery like Philz Touch and try to do factory reset from there.

Format the efs and restore your efs backup, if you don't have a backup then you'll need to pay for a repair.

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