[ How to fix ] E:failed to mount /efs (Invalid argument) in recovery mode EFS

Download ADB tool & ADB Drivers

How to run it ?
open a notepad text file, type CMD.EXE inside it & save it as RUNME.BAT to this location C:adb
now go to that folder C:adb & double click the RUNME.BAT file

if you don’t have root,but have a custom recovery, just download & copy this zip to your internal phone memory & install it via the recovery then reboot :

adb shell
cd /dev/block/platform
cd dw_mmc
cd by-name

mke2fs /dev/block/…..
mount -w -t ext4 /dev/block/…..

  3. Sir I have a Samsung S6 edge SM G925I .. and my above phone has been same problem as:- E-failed to mount / efs (invalid argument)

  4. This will delete all data if used on /system? I have a problem that I cannot mount /system partition (Invalid argument). Changing file system will delete data?

  5. Useless video IMHO. Yes, this will fix the mount error but it also makes sure that the whole EFS contents is lost for good, which is due to have some serious side effects like lost IMEI or WLAN MAC address etc. You've fixed the error message, not the symptoms!
    Also, the mount before reboot is of absolutely no use if you don't put some files in there.
    And you could use /dev/block/platform/dw_mmc/by-name/EFS directly since it's just a link to the physical device name. No need to copy/paste the physical device name. Ref: description: you won't be able to flash an unsigned zip from the stock recovery. Oh well, just too many errors and nonsense to mention.

  6. my device, xt1021 is not rooted and i have errors ("failed to mount" and invalid argument". so if i hit "su" inhe adb shell, the answer is "su not known". how can i root it in this state to get full su permission?

  9. What if you don't have a custom recovery or a root that I know of? I do have apply update from ADB available, I believe it was factory reset as an attempt to fix it as well. It was frozen on the carrier screen so I had no way to back it up. The phone owner hadn't backed it up previously either. So is there a way to apply these settings in that situation, or do I need to tell them their phone is now a paperweight?

  10. i found another alternative,, boot into download mode and then copy the product name e.g CHNEXYNOS4412 and use that name to search for the correct factory download file for your phone. and flash it with odin. thats it. CONCLUSION that error is mainly caused by incompatible firmware usually from a different region.

  11. i'm not getting the mount option on my phone. i'm getting apply update from ADB
    tried using that option. on command promp im getting Error: Closed
