[Q] Managed to unbrick VZW GN2 but lost imei
I picked up a bricked Verizon Note2 off someone on craigslist. I managed to unbrick it but the only way that i could was by flashing a stock rom without root. I tried earlier stock roms and so forth. Nothing stuck. So now it has stock 4.3 on it. The problem is apparently the efs folder is corrupted or files are missing or whatever, but I cannot connect to verizon network. In the settings the imei and meid is unknown, baseband is unknown, network is unknown, mobile network type is unknown, etc., etc.
I am really at a loss as to what to do. I have been pouring over xda and various other threads for the past few days and cannot seem to find a fix.
The good news 'might be' that I have my own Verizon GN2, which is also stock 4.3, but not rooted. So basically the same phone, except my GN2 has the ND3 build (i took the OTA update) and the borked phone has the MJ9 build.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what i can do to rebuild the efs folder or whatever it takes to get this phone to pick up the VZW network?
Naturally I do know what the iemi is because its under the battery.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
