[Q] Huh... I've tried digging up stuff, but I think I need some advice
Howdy folks, I think I'm in an odd situation here...
I have a Note 2 from Videotron that's been unlocked (they won't warranty it, Samsung's given me the run around), but seems to have developed an odd issue... Basically, I'm running stock firmware, but have been rooted. However, my phone gave up the ghost the other night and I figured just flashing the stock Odin image (from Tesh) would just resolve it.
Well, it got my phone back up and running... sorta. I can't seem to access the inernal storage (which isn't a big deal as I have 32gb micro SD card), and somehow my IMEI number shows up as 'null'
I did some digging around and I found out about the nv_data.bin (and related files), so I decided to dive into the EFS folder and lo and behold... those files seem to be missing. Wifi and bluetooth check out as functional.
I've tried some of the tricks to rebuild it, reflashed the stock image, modem, csc. and no dice.
I've seen talk of being able to hex edit the files from another device to get it up and running, which I don't mind doing. I've been flashing ROMs for a few years now and this is the first time I've encountered this. Also, I'm an IT tech by trade, so command lines fon't scare me.
However, this is stumping me and I really don't want a $730 mini tablet... or if you folks know of a service that rectify the issue for me, I'd appreciate any info. Though, I'd prefer to DIY myself before sending it out to a shop.
