I don't intend to continue with stock rom and stock kernel. What should i do to prevent this error occur by installing any custom rom or custom kernel? I've heard that i have to backup the efs, but the efs folder is always blank on galaxy y.

the efs partition is empty on galaxy y because that partition is not mounted
you can backup your efs partition with galaxy toolbox but that wont help you with the problem you had

I keep saying its to do with the ril - you cant use an old kernel with a new firmware and vise versa
to solve this if you use an old kernel with a new firmware replace the ril lib of the new firmware with one from an old firmware

Iv even posted them
