That was ok until i decided to mess with the russian mts 916 official 2.2 rom on here.
Whole lot of weird stuff happened, wouldn't boot, would boot only to boot into recovery and nowhere else etc etc.
Tried everything i could think of but it refused to boot normally, tried different versions of cwm to no avail.
SO, i busted out my chinese tpt and eventually got it back to normal, rebooted a few times with the chinese rom to make sure then did a restore from cwm and that went well too.
But one thing i couldn't figure out was why i had no service and why airplane mode wouldn't turn off, so i sat here scratching my head trying to figure out what the hell was going on.
Then i was going through settings and noticed something odd, MY IMEI WAS 0 as was my IMEI SV 00.
Did some googling and found out i need a Channel1.nvm and edit that which i don't seem to have around anywhere.
Or is there some other way i haven't found yet to fix it?
Any help would be much appreciated.
