Unhappy [Q] I deleted my efs data in the service menu

I was on CleanRom ACE 5.0 I think. Then I deleted my EFS data from within the service menu. Then I couldn't get a cell signal.

Today I flashed back to a stock I605VRAMC3 using ODIN. That didn't fix it.

Can you please point me in the right direction on how to fix this?

I've read the forum for about 3 hours and can't find the answer.

Thanks.

No, I have twrp installed on my phone, but didn't make a backup on this phone.

I don't think I have any saved backups from older phones either.

Is there a file I can copy to my phone or ADB commands to make it work?

I've seen a few posts where people ask for the EFS files, maybe there are three of them?

I don't know what the result of those requests were.

I can email you mine. Not sure of that will help. Send me a pm with your email. I'm at work now so I will send when I get home.

Thanks! I had replaced my Note 2 in December using my assurian insurance with $100 deductible. So I called them today and told 'DonTrey' what happened. He said they'd send me a new phone for free so I didn't argue.

It should get here tomorrow. Are there any issues flashing to the latest ROMs? Which one would you recommend?

Depends on what firmware is installed when you get it. If it's completely locked down then safestrap will give you root but no custom roms as of yet. I prefer meanbean but that's just my opinion. I run meanbean reborn v0.9 It's so smooth and battery life is the best. But again just my 2 cents.

Just found this for future reference

OK thanks Macasus, I might try that meanbean. Is it a 4.4 or 4.3 Touchwiz based ROM? I saw some ROMs that included some stuff from the Note 3. I might try some of them out.

I'll do some reading and find out how to tell if my new phone is completely locked down. That would suck. I'm hoping it will arrive today.

I have a week of vacation, and of course I have to deal with my phone for half of it. I'm almost ready to jump ship and get an iPhone. j/k
