--
FOR SURE NEED ROOT

WE HAVE TWO TYPE OF Note 3s:
1- devices with /dev/block/mmcblk0p11 block for EFS Like N9005, Snapdragon
2- devices with /dev/block/mmcblk0p3 block for EFS Like N900, exynos octa
[B][U]Update:
According To This Post, N9005/Qualcomm Devices Need ModemST Blocks For Restoring IMEI! and fsg and backup blocks!

-----

WINDOWS:

(Recommended)
EFS Professional v2+
with Qualcomm device support

Thanks To @lyriquidperfection
----
i will Change Windows EFS Tool for fsg backup if you need it...
--
Base Work of Windows EFS Tool is From This Thread Thanks To @A.S._id
------
APP:

you can use SAManager app too (package name for search: com.pyler.samanager)
--
you can use Samsung Tool V2.0 from this thread too.
Remember: Samsung tool has different Version For N9005 thanks to ricky310711
--------
------------
AROMA:
not working for n9005 because it can't backup fsg...

AROMA EFS Backup/Restore

Thanks To Dr.Ketan For Base Files From this thread
Don't Use Dr ketan's Aroma For Backup N9005. It Won't Work.
-----------------
RECOVERY:
Backup efs in CWM (like philz touch) in Custom backup section
you can restore it very easy in Custom Restore section.
i think it won't work for nN9005

ADB:
(EXAMPLE for EFS BLOCK)
FOR N9005:
or you can Backup it yourself with adb command to your sdcard:
adb shell
SU
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p11 of=/sdcard/EFS.img bs=4096
And You can Restore it With THese Commands:
adb shell
SU
dd if=/sdcard/EFS.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p11 bs=4096
FOR N900:
Backup:
adb shell
SU
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 of=/sdcard/EFS.img bs=4096
Restore:
adb shell
SU
dd if=/sdcard/EFS.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 bs=4096

this post is good For FIXING too

i can't undestand your first and second lines "Did the terminal ine for sm n9005 "
EFS must be that size in img format.
yes mine is 14MB too..
just use SAManager and See, the size is 14MB with SAManager app too
OR Use Windows EFS TOOL from first post. and see img file size

Got these from another thread.
Do we need to copy all these blocks fro sm9005, snapdragon version.

for backup :
su
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p11 of=/storage/extSdCard/efs11.img bs=4096
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p12 of=/storage/extSdCard/efs12.img bs=4096
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 of=/storage/extSdCard/efs13.img bs=4096

for restore :

su
dd if=/storage/extSdCard/efs11.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p11 bs=4096
dd if=/storage/extSdCard/efs12.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p12 bs=4096
dd if=/storage/extSdCard/efs13.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 bs=4096
