G950U TMB - Emergency Calls only after unlock


Hello. I got a G950U TMB in my hands, which was supposed to be brand new and unlocked by somebody.
This phone gets the sim card but gets no network, emergency calls only. The IMEI is definitely not blacklisted, this is checked by changing the imei in another test phone, which worked.
It does not show invalid sim card error or the TMB message that says "this device can be remotely unlocked". The device unlock app is not disappeared, as i believe it should after a successful unlock, and when tried to unlock via app it says it cannot connect to server, although it is connected to internet via wifi.
The imei and baseband are visible in phone info and via *#06#.
Have already tried:
1) TMB unlock again via z3x (fails at calculation (error 4), sometimes did not even boot to ramdump interface and timed out)
2) flash older and newest firmware again
3) factory reset

weird thing is that when booting to recovery, it says "E: ensure_path_unmounted failed to unmount /efs (device or resource busy)"

is it possible that the first unlock did not go well and now it has problem with the efs?any suggestions?thank you in advance.

Can you take a screenshot or recording a movie clip of your current symptoms share to here? Many Pro or z3x staff will review your problems. I am not a Pro. But if I can support for you I will do it.

Since you are here, what is different between regular CSC and HOME CSC?

As far as I know CSC is nothing related to the unlock or service. It is just consumer sale code

Found one suspicious point of your symptoms.

Here is one of success z3x log and you can see it has valid RF Cal.date value



But your log indicated RF cal date is None or invalid value.



I known this RF cal data is very important for catch signal.

Can you capture the screenshot which run this code "*#12580*369#" in Dialer?

If once triggered this code you can see below screen.

in factory binary it does not get signal again, it says rf cal none in sw info, and z3x does not let me unlock it in that mode.

*#12580*369# does not work in factory firmware.

is there a way to repair this rf cal thing?

i am reading that erasing efs in factory and restoring with original imei does the job, but i am not sure how to do this or if it is dangerous.

thank you for your interest!

Regarding that efs mount message on Recovery, it appeared since G950U / G955U BL2(Bootloader Rev.2), But it just fees warning, Not affect to catch signal.
Because I have G950U ATT and this device also display same warning message on recovery.
But it worked like a charm.

I have only knowledge of IMEI(EFS) repair, which flash Combination binary then Dial *#06#. This method introduced from XDA titled with
"[GUIDE] How to fix IMEI / DRK issues " <== Google keyword

I hope to find out also how to restore RF cal (Calibration) data.
Who knows restore RF Cal data without knox tripped?

is there a problem if the knox gets tripped? even if there is, wouldnt it be better to trigger the knox but have a working phone?
