so i rooted and flashed xnote used for a few days and decided to flash back to stock, now my phone has no signal saying theres no sim inserted, like a donut i didnt backup EFS...is there any fix for this?

I had this problem. And solve it this way :

Flash stock
Full wipe from stock recovery (wipe everything including your data on internal sd so take care)
Re flash the same stock rom

Hope it can help

Good luck

My friend has the exact same problem and now he just gave me his phone so i can fix it and i am downloading xnote 18 now and after that i will be downloading the stock and take it from there.
Hmm i did servrel flashes of different stock roms and non worked as i still had unknown baseband and imf showed up as NUL/NUL and EFS all messed up but then i found a life saving script.

I flashed back to a custom rooted rom "xNote 18" and twrp recovery checked the phone and issue was still there so i then flashed this awsome script and the phone was back from the dead :victory:

I purchased because I wanted to help the rom. But then again, this whole thing started to get me thinking. Lately, this rom has become far too much revolving around money. Rarely anything really nice and unique added to it, but every 2 sentences you ask for money. Made themes for money, made apps for money. I'm expecting soon to have to pay in order to receive the link to the updated version. Other people make these things for free and don't complain about it. It is one thing to put a link in the OP saying "buy me a coffeee if you liked what I made" and a whole other thing to start building everything around a little payment and have in most of your comments another phrase including "donations are welcome, donations are welcome", and making privileges especially for those who donate.
I am aware I will start being flamed by all the a$$kissers around, but for some of the ones who actually think, my reply might be a bit of a food for thought

Is it? if you made the app on play store that costs money, and it does the exact same thing as the one included in the rom, what gives me the assurance that build 19 will also have one included? I am to expect that in the new version, you either buy the app, or don't get the usage

This is my favorite ROM so far, but I found a problem with my GEAR 2 SMARTWATCH: battery drains so fast with this rom, i depletes in 6 hours!!, but if I try other rom it lasts 2.5 days (60 hours).... I could not find the reason...yet..

NEW XNOTE CONTROL APP (uninstall the old, you have a refund)


- 4 translation: IT-DE-FA-ES
- 2 app themes (Holo dark - Holo light)


We loose an hard disk... fortunately we have a backup of everything except of a copy of our eclipse key used to compile the xnote app note3 (play store version).

Google policies can't allow to update the app compiled with a new key, we can only open a new play store page with a new x-note (note 3) app.

To solve this problem (if we open a new play store page, the users can't update the app without purchasing the new one, so 2 purchasing.. bad thing ahahahhaha ) WE DECIDED TO:

- REFUND all X-Note note3 app (play store version) purchasing to ALL users
- Open a NEW Play store page with the new X-Note application updated (4 translation FA-IT-ES-DE and two themes dark and light)
- Provide the updated flashable rom files (secsettings and systemUI and also public xnote app with new package name)
- Provide the updated donation themes

Sorry for the inconvenient but this is the only way to be honest with every user. So if you purchased xnote app you already have a refund and if you want to update the app you need to purchase the new version https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.xnote.controllN3 and flash the updated zip in OTA.

    Installation instructions (ONLY FOR INTERNATIONAL N9005, User reported that if flashed on other gn3 variant the script will wipe internal sdcard) :



    So you need a 4.4.2 official firmware already installed, a working KITKAT recovery and ROOT to backup EFS (use chainfire root for KITKAT)

    1- Untick reactivation lock in security settings
    2- do a EFS backup from your KitKat firmware
    3- check the MD5 of your downloaded X-Note zip
    4- reboot recovery
    5- wipe data (don't do other wipes)
    6- install zip and choose the rom in your sd
    7- follow aroma, reboot system.
    8- leave the phone 5 minutes
    9- look at your internal sd card, if you have a folder "0" (zero) cut and paste the content (xnote folder) outside the zero folder
    10- use X-Note app the first time to enable/disable home button + traffic meter + status bar elements color
    11- done.



    Do ONLY the steps:
    1 - 2(skip if you have) - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11

    Anyway I used odin v. 3.07, with only ticked autoreboot, the file tar.md5 must be loaded under PDA
    After the steps below you need the CWM for KITKAT

    Simple step to install Official Poland 4.4.2 KitKat ROM:
    • Download Official Poland Single file KitKat 4.4.2 ROM.
    • Download and install Odin3 v3.09
    • Extract once the downloaded KitKat ROM.
    • Open Odin and load the firmware at AP.
    • Tick Phone Bootloader Update. See screenshot.
    • Click start and wait until it finish.


    • What to do if I forgot tick Phone Bootloader Update and now stuck at accessing recovery screen - Take out the battery to turn of the phone, boot back to download mode and reflash the ROM and remember tick Phone Bootloader Update.
    • Is Full Wipe Required? - No and I never do that, if ain't break don't Wipe. Only wipe the phone if phone act abnormal. I did like this since I own 1st Android phone - Google Nexus One.
    • Is official Poland KitKat ROM auto wipe your phone? - No.
    • Is leak Kitkat ROM auto wipe your phone? - Yes.
    • Can I downgrade to 4.3 ROM for N9005 - No.
    • Can I install CM11 base on 4.4 KitKat for N9005 - No as CM11 still under older bootloader.
    • Is flashing different countries ROM via Odin trip the Knox - No.
    • Is rooting in KitKat trip the Knox - Yes due to new bootloader.
    • Is this Poland KitKat support Hong Kong N9005 - No, Hong Kong N9005 is not friendly with others country N9005, cannot cross flashing.
    • What to do if I accidentally flash it under Hong Kong N9005 and soft brick now - The only solution now is flashing custom recovery (Knox trip due to custom recovery) for KitKat and later flash SweetROM v7 KitKat custom ROM.
    • Can I remain Knox 0x0 with root for KitKat - Yes if you still under old bootloader (No if you already at KitKat or bootloader at MJ7 or newer) and follow step here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=49501057&postcount=389 or visit here for more in details step, 1st page post 9 - https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/3099271
