Default Possibly bricked my note 2/ imei unknown

Greetings all.
I rooted my sgn2 using the toolkit and installed TWRP.
Then proceeded to install Omega rom.
In TWRP, I wiped cache dalvik syetem, factory reset.

I now have my IMEI as unknown and I do not have a efs backup. Is there a way to restore my imei/efs partition? I have searched all of xda without a resolution. I seriously wished I backed up my efs partition.

Please let me know if there is anything I could do.
Thank you,
William

I think you'll have to take in for service for a fix. Warranty?
But yes, for all the new flashers out their, remember to backup your efs before modding your phone.

Very much new to making music. Kindly give my music a listen here: First Set Of Demos. Just give it a listen, it would be an excellent support just seeing someone is listening to my music!

Did you flash a rom that was meant for another phone? It may have included a modem and overwrote your existing modem partition.
Phone: Tmobile Galaxy Note 3 Sim unlocked
ROM: Touchwiz stock SELINUX Enforcing
64 GB Class 10 Sandisk



If you need help please, please, please, please post recovery.log.
1. adb pull /tmp/recovery.log or Advanced->Copy Log to SDCard
2. Upload /tmp/recovery.log or /sdcard/recovery.log to http://paste.tinyw.in

My phone is from tmobile. I was not aware they had a seperate section for "t-mobile samsung galaxy note II"
