How I repaired my S4

I searched for the modem suitable to my device and yet they still didn't work. I even tried to just install the official Samsung 4.4.2 rom via Odin, yet I'm still having the same problem. My baseband does change whenever I flash a new modem, but I still cant get a signal. When I try to search for a network in settings it lists the main carriers in the UK, but when I try to select mine (3 UK) it doesn't allow me to register, clicking select automatically yields the same results too. I've been searching for hours today on how to fix this, but just can't seem to find a method that helps. Any suggestions?
Take your S4 to a repair shop. Use Phil,s recovery when you re-root, install Omega ROM or another Samsung based ROM and, using Philz Touch 6 recovery, make a copy of your EFS file so if / when it happens again you can reinstall Omega or whichever ROM you installed and, using Philz recovery, you can reinstall your EFS file.
To make the backup, reboot recovery - backup and restore - custom backup - x (only in efs backup) - start custom backup - choose where to put the backup.
I use Omega as a reference because I know it will not screw up your EFS file.
