Good day.. Heres the situation..

I have rooted my device and used it for a while.. then some day i have lost the signal and when checked i had no IMEI.. then I.

-Rebooted and nothing
-restored Factory reset nothing

then the device didnt boot to android anymore .. i can reflash any firmware with ODIN but then it restart to stock recovery do some stuff and i get a warning in red saying it can not Access EFS and then wont boot.

I can flash Phills CWM with odin and im running it.. it boots to cwm no problem but CWM wont mount EFS.. says is to big or something..

I have ADB working on my laptop.. have all the firmware related to the i9500 to work with and wondering

Digg the forum for factory ROm which would include the resurrection ROM or factory ROM, and flash it including PIT, bootloader etc. It WILL wipe your phone, it WILL delete root, but you will have one of two options:
1. running, fixed phone;
2. unrooted brick which you'll be able to send to service for warranty repair (assuming that you rooted phone without messing with KNOX).

In any of the above options, you will have benefit: you will stop playing with root tools and apps which can mess too deeply with the phone (I hope)
