Hi everyone I have been a long time lurker here and need a bit of help please.

I was trying to unlock my GT I9505 via the service menu but I accidentally deleted my EFS folder so now my IMEI shows just /02 and nothing else.

Is there any way to restore this or can anyone log on to my PC and do something I have no problem making a Paypal donation in order to sort this.

I appreciate your help.

Mal.

Hi I done that but they cannot fix it as the phone was rooted, the only thing they will do is install a new board which costs nearly as much as the phone. Is there any tool available to fix it by PC?

Cheers.

If the phone is rooted and they dont wanna fix it then go ahead ,flash stock rom and do reset / factory reset to make it back to official roms to get back to warranty , Im sure your phone still has warranty? . Or you can try this one
