Description

well all is in the title. Of course I do not have a EFS backup. I did not even know that this exists :)
Anyhow. I suggest putting a strong advice in the "install Wiki" to do so!

the file shell@android:/efs/FactoryApp/serial_no was 0000000
so I replaced it with the right one (14 or 15 digits ??)
from the battery. Reboot, nothing changes. Is there a checksum of this file hidden somwhere?

I saw some chown discussion:
[code]
