This worked for me:

1.- apply fake imei as first post
2.- do a full stock update from sd
3.- check that your imei is 0 and then you can follow unlock steps...

tested with yoigo 944 stock fw.


2. when you say full stock update from sd you mean from GB to ICS? i have already upgraded to stock ICS from GB, would you suggest to downgrade and try again?

can you pls explain?

I have upgraded to stock ICS B936, made a copy of my original IMEI, then flashed the 5irom provided on the first page and followed instruction.

This time when i input my original IMEI and press write i get the message ok, however it does not change the IMEI to my original, even after a phone restart. Any help is much appreciated.

You flashed the imei backup by using the restore function in 5irom? After that did you restart the phone?

I haven't flashed my original imei back as this is locked. What the instructions say is that you should change the IMEI with the DFS, then restart then make a backup of the unlocked IMEI. If i install my original IMEI i can see my original IMEI but it is still locked

Reflash the same stock ROM so you have not to downgrade or upgrade.

ok tomcat_ this is what I did.. I was on stock gb rom I then used the imei changing tool & it changed to something different not 0 then I put a different gb rom on and checked my imei and now it was 0 so for the dfs tool to work I reckon the imei has to be 0 this is the only thing different from all the other 100's of tries I did so then I ran the dfs tool and put my real imei in & followed through the rest as normal I still got the doffline failure message but just ignore it & after i restarted my phone & checked my imei it is now my real one hope this helps you & anyone else stuck also you must remember to restart your phone after every stage let us know how you get on

thanks for that, this is what i'm understanding from derfuhrer2007 as well that the IMEI has to be 0 for the DFS to work. I will try it tonight when i'm back home.

just one question. Did you flash a stock ROM or a custom one? And also did you do it via the phone (sd card/software upgrade) or via CWM?

thanks

success..!! as it is rightly mentioned, you have to be on stock rom and the IMEI has to be 0, otherwise the DFS tool will not write the IMEI.

Question: after the correct IMEI is written via DFS, i have made another backup of the unlocked IMEI.
If i flash back the first original IMEI would the phone be locked again?

unless i'm doing something wrong, when i have flashed the "fake" IMEI i'm losing the quick setting buttons on the quick drop down menu. Even if i flash another stock rom still the same. If i flash my backed up IMEI i get that functionality back

*edit* forgot to mention that here under section 6 there is a 5irom (tookit download links) that zeros the current IMEI. I haven't tried that, but if that works then flashing again another stock update to 0 the IMEI i guess it won't be necessary.

just to avoid any confusion what i want to say above is that i'm missing the quickpanel toggles. Only if i flash my original backed up IMEI i can get the toggles back. However if i flash my original IMEI 5irom then the phone will be locked again?

Do you mean the DFS program?
That is available via the two-part downloads in post 4
