Post [Q] After downgrading to 4.1.2 the IMEI changed to 0049

Hey guys,

Right now I have a problem with my IMEI on my S3.
I was on the leaked 4.3 but the performance wasnt that nice, so I downgraded my phone again to 4.1.2.
Now my IMEI Number changed to 0049, and I do not have any EFS backup.
I also read similar topics like this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1264021 but nothing fixed my problem
I heard that it's possible to create a flashable zip and flash it again, but I dont know how to do it.
Hope you guys can help me,

thanks,

kool

no backup of the efs is difficult to recover the imei. 4.3 or try to re-flash a modem mg4 or higher. maybe you are lucky and recuepras imei. but you can try with kies, being a rom 4.0.4, .4.1.1 or 4.1.2 and expect to be updated, in some cases I've seen so solve it.
