Default [Q] Note 2 bricked

Today i flashed CM 11 with CWM and after rebooting the baseband and IMEI were gone. I tried to flash the baseband but nothing happened. I then tried to flash the stock rom touchwiz through ODIN and it failed. Now the phone reboots asking to connect to KIES and do a recovery which i can't perform.
Any clues about?

Thank you in advance,
Davide

Thanks for the prompt reply. The Rom I flashed is the 4.4.2 snapshot.
In the meantime i flashed this pit file from this link
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2137008
and now the CYM is back and working but still no baseband.

Is there any way i can reinstall the stock rom ? is the partition a problem?
I dont have a backup of the EFS folder (I made it once but i cant find it)

EDIT: CWM is installed and working

is your IMEI Same..?
i assume there are several reasons, it can be a simple fix by installing a stock 4.4 KK which will eliminate the problem you are facing, iin past week, i done alot of experiences on my bricked note 2, specially the failed PIT flashed, i tried couple of them but at the end the only thing turned the phone in right direction was stock KITKAT
you can find that in the the post i posted earlier.
i am 100% sure you will get your phone back to life.
also remember to when you are done flashing go to stock recovery and wipe data and cache. It is needed after re-partiton to form the partitions correctly
edit: best keep a nand of your current rom as well
4.4.2

Exactly. Flashing the official stock rom based on kitkat 4.4.2 (which has been released few days ago I believe) solved the problem. I'll try to flash CM tomorrow (tonight get.cm is not reachable and can't download the android app).

Thank you!

Just wanted to ask you something. I installed the Nordic version of the latest Android update which is at the moment the only one available and I have the impression that the voice quality is not that good. I was wondering if this may depend on the baseband version installed on this one. I'm from Italy and kitkat 4.4 is still not available in my country. Flashing a different baseband may change the situation? If so, Is there a baseband more compatible with this touchwiz version and the Italian telco providers?

Thank you again,
Davide
