Hey everyone,

So recently i got my hands on a Samsung S3 T999V and have been playing around with it.
I managed to root it... and keep it rooted (damn Sammy's are a *itch compared to LG)

My current stats are:
I am rooted
Devicename: SGH-T999V
Model number: SGH-T999V
Android version : 4.4.2
Baseband version: Unknown
Kernel version: 3.4.0-1784548
dpi@SWDD5918#1
Wed Jun 4 19:40:12KST 2014

Build number: KOT49H.T999VVLUFNF1
SE for Android status: Enforcing
SEPF_SGH-T999V_4.4.2_0016
Wed Jun 04 19:40:01 2014

Checking *#06#: null / null
nothing when i enter *#197328640# my service mode is empty...nothing, nada, zip

Long story short..... i wanted to try unlocking it myself next. read and read till my head spun.
...and i took the plunge.

i maybe have tried downgrading to Frosty's 412, got into a repeating boot menu.... restored my back up, had to reset due to Google apps crashing, titanium'ed all my apps and data back....
...that's when i noticed it, i lost my imei and baseband...

(i'm currently asking DocHoliday77 for help, but recently been stuck to only working on it well.... at work )

..does anyone else have any ideas?

We can help get you straightened out as far as what is running on your device here in this thread if you prefer. But if the getting your firmware straightened out doesnt fix the imei, we will have to do thst via PM only. The tools and info required for the fix are not allowed to be posted publicly.

I just sent you a PM, but basically what i recommend at this point is to flash the full firmware usin Odin on the computer, not with Mobile Odin.

Mobile Odin only flashes system, kernel, modem and recovery. It doesnt touch the rest of the firmware which also includes the sbl2, sbl3, aboot, rpm and tz partitions.
We need to make sure your modem is matched to the rest of that firmware, so Mobile Odin just wont do the job here.

OK, as i answered in the PM and for the rest to see, this is where i am now:

I know, this is very confusing to me too. I'm not sure what i did this time, i think i flashed the root66_vtr or the stock firmware. I got the phone from my girlfriend, she thought it was dead due to the power supply not charging. Anyways, yesterday in haste of doing somehting before my day way over i did that, now my stats are:
