the efs partition is empty on galaxy y because that partition is not mounted
you can backup your efs partition with galaxy toolbox but that wont help you with the problem you had


I keep saying its to do with the ril - you cant use an old kernel with a new firmware and vise versa
to solve this if you use an old kernel with a new firmware replace the ril lib of the new firmware with one from an old firmware

Iv even posted them
