Default [Q] IMEI lost!!!! please help....

My imei no got lost while restoring backup using cwm..... i looked around the forum and the ".nv_data" method will not do because my efs folder has a file named "essiv" only and nothing else.....

if someone would confirm what files are contained in thier efs folder and mail it to me also i'll be grateful......

I don't think the 'efs folder' of one device can be used with other devices as it contains the device's IMEI number.

Could you elaborate a bit as to what did you do that resulted in the loss of your IMEI number ? It would help others avoid it in future.

Well.... i restored the same backup file couple of times 'coz i was trying to flash a new theme...btw i am on stock indian 2.3.5......

the files in efs folder can be edited using hex editor (read somewhere in the s2 forum...i don't remeber which thread) so the imei no. in that file can be modified...
