the same has happened to me after flashing his rom. but I don't know what a imei is. I found dermann's blog and he's really upset over this.
It’s a sad and heavy day for me today. after just a few days of a public release of my i637 rom, which is know at it’s end. i say goodbye to the samsung custom rom world.
After just a few days, i removed my i637 rom from XDA’s site and Hotfile download site. It unfortunately turns out that my rom and/or flashing steps, erase your phones IMEI number from it’s software. leaving you with no choice but to use the rom which is currently on the phone. I, myself have tried number of times to flash back to AT&T’s Official Rom without success. I’d like to thank XDA’s user Mairo lopez for finding this major problem, bringing it to my attention so that the damage that has already been done is minimal and few.
I am so very sorry for those that this affects. I have asked XDA Mod “Spiaate” to close the thread and my XDA account. I am ashamed that this problem slipped though my fingers, I feel like I shouldn’t be aloud to be apart of the great community which is xda-developers anymore.
The changing of an IMEI number is illegal and i will not make, distribute and host any rom that does so.
Once again, my apologies for such a careless mistake.
please Spiaate don't close dermann's account here. it was an honest mistake.
