Default [Q] Help with EFS restore

Hello,
I have a verizon note 3 with mi9
I rooted via kingo and tried to back up my efs via:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2447342

basically I forgot to install busybox, the process did not work, the script modified my phone's files but i'm not exactly sure which ones

for example in the phone directory i dont have files in /efs (http://www.note2forum.com/forum/gala...-note-3-a.html)

i wanted to enable the Hidden Menu (Dialer) on Verizon Galaxy Note 3.

So I have unrooted via Kingo app now. And I did a factory reset. I still do not see any files in the /efs folder on the phone

I want to know what I should do to fix the EFS files.

My phone still works to make calls and have internet, but I'm afraid to do anything further.

Thank you in advanced

You can't see efs without a root browser. Unlikely there ever was an issue.

Please note, I do not do ROM support via PM. If you have a question, ask in the device thread. Thanks.

Thanks, okay I rerooted the phone. I am using ES file explorer and I can see alot of files in the folder efs/ now. I'm guessing they are all there since my phone seems to still work.


anyways below is what the script I was using was doing, maybe someone can explain whats going on, and confirm stuff didn't get deleted. I have no idea whats going on there.
