1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    The EFS location has no data at all. With it having no data, I get a black semi-transparent box that pops up with yellow lettering in it. Is there a way to restore this EFS Data? No I didn't make a back up.

    I am on 4.3. WIth out the EFS data, you aren't suppose to have your IMEI data or soemthing, but my IMEI number is in my about phone information and my sorta works fine.


    Here is what I have done to try and fix this issue
    Reflash with odin
    reflash with keis
    factory reset through operating system
    factory reset through recovery
    reflash with odin using pit file as well

    n/m. I tried mounting the efs partition which i think worked. There was actually a folder in there called lost and found but no data in that folder. either way, more than before. well. after i shut it down to reboot it, it wouldn't turn back on. it is a toasty paperweight now.

    Install one of invisablek's rooted stock ROM's and reprovision the device.
