I tried all the other methods and suggestions. Finally I tried this one and it worked. The post is in another language, but the code works. Don't worry if terminal tells you bla bla bla not found, just keep typing in the next code. When you reboot, factory mode will be a thing of the past.

Did you try pulling the battery? How do you know if you're stuck in factory mode?

Talking Thank you thank you thank you.

I really appreciate the help here. I had a i605 that had that annoying Factory Mode box because I messed up my EFS folder with Root Explorer. Now at least I have a baseband and 000000000's for my ESN. Much appreciative to the developers who share their knowledge with us.

Default FIX for getting out out of Factory Mode-Must be rooted

Might as well post the fix since it does work.



From terminal emulator or adb shell

su

rm /efs/FactoryApp/keystr
rm /efs/FactoryApp/factorymode
echo -n ON >> /efs/FactoryApp/keystr
echo -n ON >> /efs/FactoryApp/factorymode
chown 1000.1000 /efs/FactoryApp/keystr
chown 1000.1000 /efs/FactoryApp/factorymode
chmod 0744 /efs/FactoryApp/keystr
chmod 0744 /efs/FactoryApp/factorymode
reboot


Also located here, on XDA. What a coincidence

To cut down on errors you can copy-paste these commands into the terminal emulator.
