    @inflock, thanks. Your solution helped me get rid of Factory mode. However I think this mode reset my IMEI

    To anyone who can help,
    I was on Stock rooted 4.4.2 (international Note 2) when this Factory Mode thing happened. I have absolutely no clue why this happened in the first place!

    I believe because of this my IMEI was reset to 004999010640000/01. I tried flashing a new ROM via TWRP. It did not help. I tried a few modems for this ROM (Dr. Ketan ND3 for Android 4.4.2). This also did not work.

    I tried looking up this IMEI issue in XDA. Nothing conclusive there or on Google search either. I am hoping folks can suggest alternates. Will re-flashing an older ROM (via ODIN) resolve my issues? Please let me know other alternates.

    the command efs/FactoryApp/keystr is about to removing .. no directory found mean you already did. so nothing to worry just complete the whole commands . it works like charm .

    Here is the exact solution for this problem which i have recently had!

    You have to root your phone and install Terminal Emulator from Google Play.

    Open terminal emulator and type as ;

    rm /efs/FactoryApp/keystr
    rm /efs/FactoryApp/factorymode
    echo -n ON >> /efs/FactoryApp/keystr
    echo -n ON >> /efs/FactoryApp/factorymode
    chown 1000.1000 /efs/FactoryApp/keystr
    chown 1000.1000 /efs/FactoryApp/factorymode
    chmod 0744 /efs/FactoryApp/keystr
    chmod 0744 /efs/FactoryApp/factorymode

    You now should not see the that message anymore. Its because of an EFS corruption. ( Thanks to yesilcin*com) for exact solution.
    Hope it helps!!!
    Thank you mate .
    its work like charm ..amazing effort .
