Unhappy [Q] SPH-l900 EFS Pro, issues with no readlink

I have just rooted my Sprint Note 2 SPH-l900. I am learning all of this as I go. I was looking into changing some of my themes and icons and ran into the need of a deoxed ROM which means I need a new ROM. The first thing I tried to do was save my EFS Partition. I navigated to the EFS location, long clicked and chose copy. I then navigated to my external SD to drop it there but I had no choice to paste. I then found the EFS pro from this site. I opened it, added the EFS to the list of partitions and I was then greeted with a note stating I need the readlink: applet and suggested Busybox 1.20.2 All I have to choose from in busybox Pro is 1.21.1 and 1.21.0. If I choose a custom download, I am taking to a page with a 404 display which of course is of no use. I cannot find anywhere to get this applet and I am getting frustrated. I am already trying to learn this and I am stuck in something I cant get out of. All the instructions for EFS Pro don't explain this situation. Please let me know how to get past this and to make sure I have a proper version of busybox at the same time. My actual next step is to get a new ROM so any suggestions for that is helpful as well. I am looking to customize, save battery and I am still learning what else is out there. My battery is lasting 3 days of now, I am looking for 5 days just to see if I can. I have a 9300 mAh battery right now.
I have a SPH-l900 with Titanium Backup Pro, Waze, Tasker, Swiftkey, Super SU ROM Toolbox, Orange Backup, Multiwindow Pro, Goo Manager, Comodo Security, Busybox ProBoat Browser, Android Assistant and some other apps for HVAC Purposes.

Any help is extremely appreciated. Again I am new, have no Android developmental skills but I will do research and I learn quite a bit faster than most people (though I have blocked quite a bit of my synapses in my early years!!)

I have become familiar with the filing system and have made copies of the efs and save it on my external card, laptop and my drop box. I am now looking for a ROM to flash which keeps all of the unique functions of the note such as multi-windows and the s pen I am looking for improved responsiveness/quickness, lots of custom icons/themes/colors/graphics/home screens etc...I am also looking for an efficient setup to keep my battery up and lasting. The last thing which i think is common is that it is deodoxed.

Thanks

Hello friend, I hope you do not bother, this message is for help, first I would like to know if you are a user of a note L900, I have a problem, delete the EFS folder. Now I have no IMEI, I have seen a technician, he says Get the EFS folder from another note, to retrieve your IMEI.

The question is: lend me your EFS folder?

I was stuck in safe mode from a random reboot. I lost my imei and everything was wiped. I deleted. The efs folder i hope of fixing things but made it worse. I bought another phone 3 months later i decided to fix it or try. I downloaded mc2 stock rom and the mc2 partition file just to try because i tried everything possible til that point. And when i did that my damn phone imei number baseband and everything came back i was shocked. I read on the international g note2 about currupt partitions from flashing. Now i own a lg g2 and a working note 2 i use both phones now. I was using the s5 feat rom which is nice but im on the lg g2 trying this lg g3 rom port. I like both may the note 2 live on . atleast try what i did because my phone was toast before i fixed it

https://www.dropbox.com/s/7kihwcdm9c2thj2/efs.zip. unzip and put it on phone. It won't work i already been there but you can see for yourself. Do what i said above and you will have a working phone again just save yourself the extra time n money i made the mistake so that others don't have too. Ill find the partition file it was hard to find on xda. This the partition pit file https://www.dropbox.com/s/4n789cxgl0hvm51/t0lte.pit if you decide to try it. If you need directions ill be online for 30 min then I'm off
