Changing IMEI on engineering sample

27 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

My friend has an engineering sample phone but o2 has blocked it because it appears to have an IMEI with lots of zeros in it.

Is there any way of changing the IMEI or at least getting Android to report back a different IMEI?

Many thanks in advance, I'm aware that there may be some legal issues with this but it is not as if the phone has been stolen.

Thanks in advance,

Seb

It is illegal regardless of the phone being legitimately owned, and you can't do it anyway.

Sure you can do it.

Don't say you can't when you're not on 100%

IMEIs are, as far as i believe, now hard coded and cannot be changed.

It is also illegal to change the IMEIs on any device!

If it is a legitimate engineering sample then you should be able to approach the network and request that the phone be unblocked.

As for an IMEI being changed during a flash from one rom to another that should not be possible.

According to this thread a combination of NVFlash and Smartflash will get your IMEI back.

Because you've selected erase CP box.

Rule No.1 is never select this if you dont have the correce baseband for your device.

Try getting default baseband your device came with, flash it again and this time CHECK THE BOX "ERASE CP" WITH PURPOSE

you have to use lg dialer or compatible,

the other way is to add an activity shortcut 'hidden menu' by using launcher pro for example

Are you sure? Have you ever studied law or smth? Cause for stealing a car give a couple of years only. Otherwise if someone stole from mobile store and made lots of phones having legit imeis for profit reasons that seems a crime..:)
