sorry my ignorance and desperation!!!
I need to do this, first?
1. Install Stock firmware via Odin, then re-run auto-root (to regain root of course)
2. Install TWRP 188.8.131.52 via odin, reboot to recovery.
3. Do an "adb shell" when phone is in recovery mode to run commands via TWRP.
From the ADB shell: Wiped the EFS partition with the following command:
mount -t ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p12 /efs
(the last two commands probably did nothing, but thats what I did anyway)
Do a factory reset, reboot system
Afterwards, no more boot looping, the phone successfully registered on the mobile network, and my IMEI is there and correct. Seems like the EFS partition can rebuild itself now I guess...
Gotta love the XDA community !!!
