    Hello, need urgent help!
    with Odin i had the EFS partition deleted :-(
    (have the EFS folder on the PC)
    I've already erased the partition with TWRP so my tab created a new one when starting up again, but it say's always the error message: E: // failed to mount EFS ..
    Even stock reflashed belongings also the same ..
    I Had flashed Cyanogen ROM 12.1 incl. Houdini .. Did that possibly something to do with the kernel?

    My model: Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 3G
    Would be very grateful if someone could help me !!! LG (sorry for my English, im from Germany)

    Grüß dich, Sanni.

    Have you tried placing your tab into Download Mode and then plugging it into your computer with Samsung Kies running on it? Samsung Kies has an emergency recovery that might restore your firmware.

    There are two tools in Kies to help with recovery. Did you try them both?

    Yes! I know now what it is! I had an app installed, with which you can change the write access to the system! I then changed it to not writable and forgot to put it back on writable! as then the battery was empty, it coldn't boot again, because the write protection is now still active! therefore I can not install a new ROM or anything! Does everybody know's how I get access again on my system?

    A couple of things I would try:
    1. Download the original OS again and try to flash it with Odin. Maybe your copy of the software is corrupted.
    2. Flash the esf file using Odin.
    3. Read this thread: [IMPORTANT] Backup your EFS IMMEDIATELY. [Backup and Restore Guides]
    It explains ways to recover your efs through Odin and ADB. Do not use the files from that thread...they are for another phone.
