Thank you. Will try this is samsung service center doesn't manage to fix my phone.
Is it okay to:

1)Flash stock firmware
2)Root with chainfire's kernel
3)Do your manipulation
?

Thank you

So, I can do a nandroid backup and restore it without brick my phone??

This fix is when you get bootloop after you use twrp restore option ...
The restore issue seems to be that the recovery was not successfully developed to the needs of the lte note3 variant.
So then Knox flag is set. And your efs get corrupted.
even samsung operation declines to fix it due to that.

This script that is developed by firasusman. .. thanks to him... can be flashed even from the twrp recovery that caused all issues of that matter only.
Then you can get your device back to life.

I took the card out and used a reader to move the file directly from my laptop.
Flashed and now everything is working perfectly again. You are a miracle worker. Thank you so much.

    Hi. I'm on T-Moblie version N900T, was having some boot loop issues that were getting progressively worse. Going from boot loops cycling just a few times to 12 or more times. Last night when I changed kernels it seemed to be behaving better but this morning it is not so good again. I did try flashing your file and I'm not sure if it made much difference. I noticed that after flashing it, there is an error statement when updating partition.

    E: Unable to mount 'usbstorage'

    Anyways, the good news is that, at least for now, it is not an infinite loop so I can continue testing.



    EDIT: Happy to report that my boot loops are completely gone! I decided to drive a steam roller over my phone and my boot loops have not reoccured! Just kidding... I did the next best thing. A full wipe. I have since rebooted 7 times and no sign of boot loop. The only thing is that I can't conclusively say is what caused the problem but if it was the efs issue your script must have fixed it and the full wipe must have removed any vestiages of this nasty bug. At minimum you gave me hope! Thanks!

    Congratulations...
    Plz some one give this Script to Samsung service center..
    Coz they don't know the fix yet.
    And they will charge alot for complete mother board.
    As one of my friends ask me if i can help him when Samsung Centre required a lot of money from him..
    I fixed his device by 1 mnt and he is
    Now so happy..
    Samsung service center wanted to let me buy a new motherboard after i suffer my self from this issue and one complete week without any news from them waiting for my mobile to be back in life...
    But i was chocked when the ask that amount af money..
    So
    Some one must inform them to tbis script saving a lot of money paid from people they do nit have access here to this script....
    Thanks and am really happy for every one recovered his phone back using my script..
