I've researched this extensively and still not finding the solution I need. I recently flashed a ROM to my GNEX (unlocked from Google Play store). I'm not sure at what point it happened, but my /factory/ folder seems to have been emptied. So now I'm getting a generic IMEI that is blocked y my carrier T-Mobile. I'm getting absolutely no service.

Strangely I had no backup other than a backup of all my apps and data from Titanium backup, but I doubt there is anything useful in there. I have since reset my phone several times, removed the battery for 20 minutes, flashed the stock version of android that came with the phone...

my radio folder looks like this:

/data/radio/
nv_data.bin
nv_data.bin.md5
log folder

The log folder contains nv.log which contains the following:

Sat May 24 21:01:16 2014: __refresh_md5_file: Can't open /factory/nv_data.bin.md5. Read-only file system.
Sat May 24 21:01:16 2014: MD5 is turned on.
Sat May 24 21:01:16 2014: /data/radio/nv_data.bin does not exist.
Sat May 24 21:01:17 2014: default NV restored.
Sat May 24 21:20:43 2014: __refresh_md5_file: Can't open /factory/nv_data.bin.md5. Read-only file system.
Sat May 24 21:20:43 2014: MD5 is turned on.
Sat May 24 21:25:23 2014: __refresh_md5_file: Can't open /factory/nv_data.bin.md5. Read-only file system.
Sat May 24 21:25:23 2014: MD5 is turned on.
Sat May 24 21:31:56 2014: __refresh_md5_file: Can't open /factory/nv_data.bin.md5. Read-only file system.
Sat May 24 21:31:56 2014: MD5 is turned on.
Sat May 24 21:33:07 2014: __refresh_md5_file: Can't open /factory/nv_data.bin.md5. Read-only file system.
Sat May 24 21:33:07 2014: MD5 is turned on.
Sun May 25 00:51:15 2014: __refresh_md5_file: Can't open /factory/nv_data.bin.md5. Read-only file system.
Sun May 25 00:51:15 2014: MD5 is turned on.

my /factory/ folder was empty, but I copied the two files from my radio folder in the factory folder to see if that would help. I think that changed the messages in the log file but did not fix the problem. I know I need to repair my IMEI, but I'm not sure how. I would GREATLY appreciate any help. Thanks!
