Default Exit factory mode on SM-217S

How do you get this thing out of Factory Mode, don't know what I did to get it there .
I've searched here and other forums, found instructions for other Samsung devices but, nothing worked for this device.
Tried editing with terminal emulator using Echo and Chown commands. Tried accessing through efs. Nothing.
Any help would be apreciated.

Fix the EFS partition then:

Or try clearing all caches and reinstalling a custom rom.

If that wont work, tell us why/what didnt work.

Did a full wipe including extsd and internal storage. Odin installed Bennys stock rooted rom and Twrp. Showed factory mode on first boot, did it all again, no love. Installed paid version of root explorer, it shows EFS as empty folder. Tried mounting EFS in Twrp, will not allow me to check the box.
Tab works in factory mode, it's mostly just annoying.

Does Wi-Fi, Mobile Data connection still work, I thought if EFS gets messed up you lose some functions?

I messed mine up but luckily had a working backup.

Yes both still work but, have to restart Wi-Fi after a reboot.
