I am setting up the Ace I of my niece. I came from the latest Italian stock ROM, after messing up with CM11 Aug 30 (which gets stuck at boot). So I re-flashed the stock ROM with ODIN, installed Raf kernel (w/o modules) and I lost the IMEI: Installed the modules still no IMEI. Now I just installed the Thunderbolt "stock" kernel and the IMEI reappeared.

It must be noticed that Galaxy Tool with Raf kernel did show the IMEI in both the UI "show device" option and in the EFS file (and so there was no way to edit it). It was just the kernel unable to read it.

I tried to edit IMEI for my Galaxy Note 3(Tmobile N900T).

The thing is , I back up the efs with EFS IMEI backup ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...anam.efs&hl=en ). It generates img, tar or tar.gz file. I chose img to edit.... when I search 0x80000 in Hex workshop, that line has a different title 0007FFE9 and doesn't have the IMEI info, there are 00 and FF.......

So what should I do to find my IMEI?

I am on Galaxy S3 i9300 and see what you're seeing. My IMEI has changed somehow and I need to set it back to the original which is printed on the phone. Have tried every solution I can find without success. This seemed promising. Is there another offset we have to type?
