Well its all gone a bit strange to be honest, after getting the phone to boot finally I went ahead and flashed the newer firmware I9300XXEMG6_I9300PHNEMG2_I9300CEEMG2_HOME.tar.md5 . The phone went straight back to bootloop!!!
So currently re doing what i did to get it running in the first place, problem is that leaves the phone in factory mode and the ktool says it is restoring my efs but it doesnt seem to do anything!
so after more grief off her im stuck again.
I have writen down PDA:ME7 PHONE:ME7 CSC:ME7 (eur) which i think is off the last working firmware but not sure which one it is!
