Story behind this zip file:
I messed up my tablet and I could only get into download mode , meaning I could flash a insecure boot.img and custom recovery.
I noticed that my EFS partition was erased when I entered a stock recovery, I got all kind of EFS error messages in recovery.
At first I tried to restore my system with a original ROM ODIN package but that doesn't restore your EFS. So no luck and still stuck in a bootloop.
So what to do? No adb , no EFS backup on my internalSD , I couldn't get acces to my internal SD.
I google around and I didn't find anything to restore EFS from within recovery or Odin. I didn't have a EFS.img backup on my internalSD so the emwo recovery was no help.
I do have a EFS backup that I took with EFS pro.
That generates a .tar and a .img file.
So I made myself a update package that I could flash from cwm. As I made the recovery I knew in what partition EFS is stored so that was easy.
This is the updater script , it should work on GT-N51... (10, 00, 20) as they all store the EFS in this partition.
show_progress(0.3,72); ui_print(" "); ui_print("1. START INSTALLATION"); package_extract_file("EFS.img", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p3"); set_progress(0.99); ui_print("------------------------------------------"); set_progress(1.0);
