I don't think you're going to be able to flash MI2 because of the new bootloader. You're probably going to have to try reflashing ML2 Odin package and hopefully that will solve your problems.

If Samsung won't honor your warranty then you might want to try taking it back to the place you purchased it and see if they will. I do have one question though, how did your phone update if you're in Guatemala? I thought only phones on the AT&T network were able to receive the OTA update.

Yeah i can see now that i cant flash anything back hopefully we will find a root option for this, because the ML2 i have tried to reinstalled it like 10 times and still no luck i get the same thing over and over again if im not wrong my efs folder is empty thats why im getting this kind of problem. i get the phone over eBay so i wont be able to get it back. and i get the ota from the file and install it trough the phone in odin mode. so im kinda stucked here

But i have a big question isnt there a way to swipe everything from the phone? delete the whole Android system??? cause ill try anything by now lol

Maybe this? You're going to need to search for "repair imei" in google and see what you can find. As a last resort if you have anybody you trust in the US, you could ship them the phone and have them take it to Best Buy.

I don't really know what else to do, hopefully somebody else has a better answer for you.
