Hi there my genius friends,

My issue started with sds - sudden death syndrome which i tried everything for but to no avail, i failed. i went through many threads but still nothing resolved it.
Knowing full well that my GT-N7100 was not covered by EU warranty, i spoke to Samsung and gave my IMEI number and they said it was ok ( because they could not find out where my warranty was from at that time). I sent it and a week and a bit later i got it back. They did not fully fix it and said that my warranty did not cover it as it was bought from outside EU. I brought it through Ebay from a UK Seller but the Seller brought it from UAE. Samsung left me in a slighty better possible as i could flash and go past where i was before. Once i flashed a stock rom i ended up with a fake IMEI and network not registered.

Now by chance i have some very old efs backup on my laptops. I am a noob at this sort of thing. How do i restore using these backups on my laptop. I have tried different kernals and modems. i have tried apps that have been mentioned in this forums. i have literally tried everything. variety of different roms, custom and stock. Everything. I have been on it for nearly two weeks scouring the internet and applying all sorts. nothing.
I am now thinking do i need to flash a rom from UAE? I live in London. the phone is originally from UAE.

Everything about efs is always about back up then restore. I already have a back up, but how do i restore.
I need a dummies guide. any links and roms to download would be much appreciated. Please help me.....

Many thanks in advance.
