Many tips/tricks/tools/flash suggested in the forum not working. So, I try to share my experience here.

    A. Solution for "the device is locked for abnormal factory reset"
    I notice this problem occur after wiping data from CWM. Even the reactivation lock is not ticked (setting>general>security) you will have this problem.
    I used normal method to solve this problem. The key is we must remember username and password for samsung account.
    1. Try to log in into Samsung account url (https://account.samsung.com/account/check.do) from laptop/computer.
    2. Make sure you have active internet connection (wifi or mobile data)
    3. Flash your Note 3 (mine N9005) with stock ROM or custom ROM (assume you have proper CWM). If you use custom ROM, select stock kernel (or select any stock in any option)
    4. Configure Note 3 (name and gmail account as well) and if you enter the page that shows "the device is locked for abnormal factory reset" then login using email and and pasword in step 1. The phone should be fine now.

    B. Solution for unknown broadband or NULL IMEI
    1. Backup your importand data, phone addres from the phone.
    2. Do factory data reset (setting>general>backup and reset)
    3. Flash Stock ROM using Odin (you can wipe data from CWM before flasing stock ROM, but you may have locked device problem)
    4. Flash your modem from this link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2475714
    5. Problem should be solved, then you can root and flash custom ROM

    Hope this method can help yot to solve the problem...
    Thanks but i already tired that N9005 LTE modems + 6 more modems from omega roms... still imei null and unknown baseband...

    First off Welcome to the forums :)

    I am going to move this thread into the Galaxy Note 3 International Root forum so that users with that device can see this.

    Thanks for posting.

    You have a corrupted EFS folder. Unfortunately this can sometimes happen when flashing. Unless you have a back up of it (usually an option once rooted and a custom recovery is installed, from the custom recovery) you are unfortunately lost.

    There are many guides on the Internet explaining how to restore it, but they don't work in my experience. Without a back up to restore you have a wifi only phablet I'm afraid.
