Great man, your phone is AT&T registered. I suggest you to install Philz Touch recovery before proceeding to backup efs partition otherwise you may lose phone identity. From which country you've bought this phone you say? Post it, we'll try to give your phone a new life.

Reboot into recovery by pressing and holding volume up+ menu and then power key this step will you bring you to the recovery menu.

1. Go on 'Backup & Restore' menu

2. Click on ' Custom backup to sdcard1(or sdcard whichever you have)'

3. Uncheck all options except efs.

4. Then after proceeding this backup your current efs_partition on sdcard or external storage which you selected in step 2.

Restart the phone, you notice it create a folder labeled clockworkmod on root directory, copy it to your pc before proceeding.

(I'm considering that you've rooted phone.)

Then install Mobile Odin Pro on your phone(Pro would be reliable if you found, sorry but I can't help this fact).

1. In Mobile Odin select an option 'Open File' (Select your downloaded file with extension'.tar.md5').
2. Uncheck 'Ever Root' (If you don't want root).

3. Check 'Wipe data and a cache' & 'Wipe Dalvic cache'

4. Then select 'Flash firmware'.

This process would take around 10~20 mins and here you go you done your phone flashing and official with warranty.

went into recovery mode, there is no "backup and restore menu" or anyhting like the steps u have written.
did u mean to do these steps after installing philz recovery? because i havnt installed that yet, i saw the video and the options shown in that guy's odin are not the one's i got in my odin. (v3.07), so i was afraid of selecting wrong option and messing things up.

Yes man, you need root for all this procedure. Go in note 2 development you'd find how to root and install custom recovery.
