Unhappy help...Restore Galaxy s3 imei no?

Hello

I have a China Mobile galaxy gs3 i9308, and the imei no. was changed to 0000000000000/null because of rom flashing (I think).
Now I am not registered on the network, so I have to change the imei no. back.
I tried several tutorials online, but seems like they're only for the galaxy s.
I tried the 9 step guide but I can't find the .nv_data file in my efs folder.
Can anyone help me or point me in the right direction?

Thank you

this is the link to that thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=881162
The video poster also said it only worked for galaxy s.
Any other ideas?

You could try flashing stock rom, heard that this sometimes restores imei, not sure if it works on s3

Also, check if the rom or kernel you flashed created a eggs backup, some do

Please help
i have the same problem i cant fix my imei, after flashing the phone it changed to 00499.. it made no backups and no nv_data.bin.bak
If the efs folder havent been backed up, what can i do? I tried changing the nv_data file like some tutorials here explain, but no luck(tried couple of times, it defently not compatible with my galaxy s3), i believe these tutorials are for erlier galaxies.
Please help!
Thank you

Did you back up the efs folder before you flash your device?
