Default Restore IMEI

Hi

I need to retore my IMEI as i do not have a backup of my EFS folder. I have a CWM backup, can I get the EFS from this? I would also appreciate if you could tell me of other ways to restore my IMEI

Pay for a repair, default CWM backup doesn't include efs partition.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Which firmware you are running with?

Check MG4 modem in net, that should solve your problem if you are using Android 4.3

Which ROM did you flash exactly that destroyed the IMEI? Happened to me awhile ago, dont remember what i flashed. What i did was, just find a ROM (4.3) which has Aroma with modem selection. I just reinstalled till i found the right one.

No man thru recovery. Search for MG4 modem. There is modem collection in this forum.
