[Q] after trying all tutorials im still stuck and need HELP please
I have a Samsung s3 international (i9300t) Telstra phone and Iíve been using custom firmware for a while now and never had much problems but it all went wrong a month ago , I figure if I give all information it might help some of you more experienced people help me out .
First I had an issue with the sound and vibrate on my phone so I unrooted and used triangle away so reset the binary, returned the phone and Samsung replaced the motherboard.
When I got it home I installed ultima rom and as soon as I installed it I had errors (unfortunately phone / message has stopped working)
So tried to go back to stock firmware. Thatís when efs got corrupted and backup wouldnít work.
I then gave it to a friend and he used a Samsung box to re write the efs and returned it working on 4.0.4
I then tried (stupidly) to install ultima rom again and same errors came back, now I have gone back to stock and imei / SN are correct but I have no connection to network.
I tried unrooting and reset binary but its stays at 1 (custom) so I have a phone that canít make calls and I canít return for warranty.
I tried installing stock kernel then stock rom but still canít reset the binary.
so what I would like help with is either fix the network issue or reset the binary to 0 so I can take it back to Samsung and tell them there new motherboard is dodgy (wink)
Any and all advice will be helpful, any criticism is expected (I stuffed up)
Oh I do have an efs back up but does not fix the problem / cwm backup fails to restore also.
