Hi guys.

I've rooted my phone then updated the room too crash.
After the room settled down, I manually reboot it after then persistent boot loops happened and the imei was also gone(I've tried to go to sretings as quick as possible). I tried re flashing the ROM but no avail.

Is there a workaround for this?

Thanks in advance guys.

Edit: I'm now on KitKat

Hi again

Sorry for the confusion. My phone crashed during office hours and can't think elaborate more.

The situation.
1. I came from Omega Rom v6. Decided to manually reboot because battery was draining like hell.
2. The samsung intro (samsung galaxy note 3 sm-9005 screen with the system message on the upper left) didn't show up with the said message.
3. Bootloop comenced.
4. Reflashed Omega hoping things would turn out ok. But no. My sim was not read and my interface buttons are not responding.
EDIT:
5. Then decided to flash new android os. Naming kitkat.
6. Bootloops are gone. And so is my IMEI and every other stuff found in that page.

Try the fix that jaythenut posted and see, I'm not 100% sure it'll fix it. However it may work. -- download it to your PC place on SD card and flash it via your custom recovery

Ah OK, so flash the EFS fix zip, then install Kitkat via Odin and you should be set.

Keep that EFS fix script on your SD card for just incase reasons in the future, it'll save you again one day... EFS on the Note is really hit and miss. Glad you got sorted

I was about to break down during office hours. Was thinking I am already carrying a $720 brick.

Thanks a lot guys.

Side note: I read this script a few days back even before trying to root my phone. @_@ never occurred to me that this script would save me.
