since I dont have channel1 backed up,the only option I have is the ZTE tool,and that wont even see my blade
so it would seem I am stuck with it for now unless one of the great blade minds comes up with a flashable zip fix.lol
You could create a channel1.nvm file with your correct IMEI number in it (from burstlam) and then use the Windows flashing tool to get to GEN 2 but replace the channel1.nvm file at around 7% (after the phone first boots) then, providing you made the nvm file correctly, it should be GEN 2 with a correct nvm file.
I did the above but with my original nvm file.
Then I used nv backup to then backup the nv files after I installed SS rls4b which then confirmed the correct IMEI number.
At that stage I had a correct nv set of files to restore later.
Then I downgraded back to GEN 1 and installed SS RLS4b which confirmed a messed up IMEI number. I then used the NV restore option which then replaced the nv files I had backed up. This then gave me a GEN 1 phone with the correct IMEI number.
Of course the restore_stock_recovery file has to be used at the appropriate times.
risks to the above but I was in a position of having the phone with the wrong IMEI at one time and also I wanted to undo the Windows type flashing of getting to GEN 2 and then later apply the TPT method, which is a much safer method to get to GEN 2. This I did with my own partition layout and then applied the SS RLS 5 LanceH remix ROM.
BUT when you are at GEN 1 with the correct IMEI you then have to ask yourself do you really need to bother going to GEN 2...?
