Info 2 IMEI bricked after installing one of the new roms from GS5

Guys, i have a problem, as you can see from the title of this post, every time I flash one of the new roms from GS5, like FlashingDroid, my IMEI gets corrputed, it shows null / null, i searched this forum for an answer, but the only thing I found was how to bring the network back, not how to uncorrupt my IMEI, does any of you have the same problem?

You need to upgrade your efs from efs1 to efs2 read this thread about efs if you haven't already >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289 <<

I would suggest flashing one of the new basebands here is a zip file with V2 basebands >> http://d-h.st/bnH << flash the zip in recovery (it is a aroma installer) and then choose one of the modems/basebands to install then try flashing a rom..

Important always backup your current efs you have been warned!

If the above doesn't work try this >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...918601/page199 << Post 1984

(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289
(4) Rescue Firmware look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6

Thanks, will be trying it tonight.

Btw, that last post you recommended... already saw it, that post only teaches you how to proceed in case of 0049 or 0000 IMEI, my GS3 shows null / null when I flash that rom, once i go back to CM 11 the IMEI comes back, I guess its a baseband problem like you suggested, Thanks again for that, i'm really hopping to use FlashingDroid's rom, it fells really smooth compared to the other GS5 roms avaliable.
