Hi all
I am lost my 5irom folder with my IMEI backup.. And my Imei was 0.Now I have my Imei back and I do this:

1. You must enter the engineering menu. Dial * # * # 2846579 # * # *
2. Go to ProjectMenu/Background setting/Usb ports setting and select Manufacture mode
3. Back to
Background setting and go to Qualcomm background open setting and select background open (pass is 0 (ZERO))
4. Exit the
engineering menu and turn on USB debugging (settings/developer tools/usb debugging)
5. Restart the phone

6. On PC install the DFS Tool (http://cdmatool.com/Demo).Connect the phone and run DFS tool.
7. Go to Ports and double click on dbAdapter Reserved Interface.
8. Close the Ports window and click on SPC.In DFS log must write UNLOCKED DEVICE.
9. If this OK go to Programming and type your IMEI in right place. (you can read Imei from phone box)
10. Click write.

11. When all finish go to ports and disabe dbAdapter Reserved Interface.Unplug your phone.
12. Go to engineering menu again.
13.
Go to ProjectMenu/Background setting/Usb ports setting and select Normal mode
14. Back to Background setting and go to OTP NV filter switch and click Confirm
15.
Back to Background setting and go to Qualcomm background open setting and select background close.
16. Restart Phone.

Thats all.. you now have YOUR IMEI!!! Dial *#06# for check.

Thanks for this.
At least there's a way to get back the lost IMEI #.

But found one problem: once I reflash stock rom, the IMEI becomes zero again.

The disadvantage is, it must unfortunately be repeated after every ROM update

Once restored can't you just back it up with 5irom and then restore with that on new ROMs?

If this lets you change IMEI then it's highly illegal in the UK. Just sayin'...

Stupid me has no IMEI on the phone and didn't make a backup. Following this tutorial but when it come to entering the password it says 0 (tried 0, 0000, 1111, 9999, 1234) is incorrect. Any one any ideas, or other suggestion on how I can get or set the IMEI.

I have no CWM backups.

All I did was install b927 over stock rooted and updated bootloader??!!

I do have a 5irom backup from another g300 but don't want to use this as may cause problem on O2.

And Mr. Rostilj xD forgot to mention, after manually entering IMEI, your phone will be unlocked from the network.It is a free way to SIM UNLOCK your phone.When you manualy write your IME to phone with DSF Tool,instal toolbox5irom to Phone and make a backup of your IMEI again,that backup can be used later for swichin between roms.This tutorial is definitely deserved to be PINNED.This is how i unlocked my G300 from my contracted network,when you follow tutorial steb by step.Its working 100%.

No it won't work on CM, has to be a stock rom. Nandroid backup and then flash a stock rom repack (eg. the B960 that is near the top of the forum currently)

It worked for me too, but serial number changed and the Wi-Fi MAC address changes every reboot to cc:bb:aa....
I also wrote in http://www.modaco.co...20#entry2096743
If anyone has a solution to stop the changing please write.
