EFS partition is unique to each device, it includes your IMEI, MAC IDs and such thats why you cant just restore from someone elses backup. I am aware there are methods of restoring IMEI and other variables but I am not familiar with one.

Look in to this, might give you some idea but not sure if it will work with your variant.
