In this tutorial you will learn to restore your IMEI in case that you have lost it when flashing your STOCK ROM or CUSTOM ROM.
- Root Access on your Phone
- MTK Droid Root and Tools v2.4.8 [Download here]
- Your IMEI [you can get this at the back of your phone it is a 15 Digits Number]
- Android ADB Driver – Depends on what phone you are using , but for most cases this Universal Driver Works fine [Download Here]
Open the self-extracting archive of the MTK Droid ROOT and Tools and open the MTKdroidTools.exe be sure to run it as an Administrator, plug in your phone and be sure you have already root your phone and have installed the Driver for your phone, if not do that first before proceeding on the next step.
Once you have open the MTK Droid Root and Tools it must detect the information of your Device similar with the Image below
Once it has detected your phone information you will notice Your IMEI will show there but if you have error it will not show there and we will use this tool to restore it.
Next you need to click the ROOT button so that it will temporary have Root shell access on your phone in order for it to make the script work on the background.
it will prompt this window to gain root shell access
and then once you have the root shell access click the IMEI/NVRAM button and this window will show
now all you need to do is put your 15 Digits IMEI Number that you can get at the back of your phone inside not the back cover 😛 if you have 2 IMEI you need to put that.
also in case you want to backup your IMEI you do it also here after restoring it, Usually you do this first before you flash any custom roms just to be safe always 🙂
and then Press the REPLACE IMEI button and it will prompt you this window that it will replace your existing one
after that just reboot your phone and your IMEI is back after the reboot , and be sure to backup your IMEI now before doing anything else
