sent from the next best thing

So, just to clarify that TWRP is official for "our device" ....This thread was split up and I think you are meaning that it is out for AT&T's GS3 correct?
And it is NOT out for TMO's GS3 (T999) if I understand this correctly.

I hope that it becomes available for T-Mobile's Galaxy S3.


As for the original post here, I am uncertain if this has bee fixed for the TMO and/or the AT&T versions....Can anyone clarify this?

Wow! Id say you've got quite a bit of catching up to do!
TWRP was released for us over 3 months ago and has since been updated 3 times. Latest version TWRP is 2.3.1.0, latest cwm is 6.0.1.2.
Once rooted install rom or goo manager and use that to install the latest cwm or twrp recovery, respectively.

As for the imei issue, I doubt it'll ever truly be fixed, as I'm pretty sure no one has ever really figured out what causes it. It has been made irrelevant by peoplearmy and geek who have given us ways to backup and restore.

The forums were split a few months ago. If you have a T999 model, everything you need is here. Do NOT go flashing anything you find in other variants forums, especially the international versions. You could brick your phone.

Good luck!

TMO SGS3 - Lost IMEI
Back when I got my phone, in September I immediately rooted it and debloated it. Once a CM10 Milestone build dropped, I flashed it. All was well until I went from the CM10 Milestone build back to my stock backup created with CWM, the reason I rolled back was video chat was not working..it was locking up my phone. That's another story in itself which I assume has been fixed in CM10 as it was back in September and this was the first Milestone build pushed. After I flashed back to stock root I lost 4g/3g service, and the phone turned into JUST A PHONE unless I had wifi.I tried factory resetting and even reverting back to the stock ICS firmware. I wound up bringing my phone back to a local retailer who replaced it under warranty as I was very short into my 14 day return period.

I've found the threads and have backed up my IMEI and done a full backup of my phone, is it safe to flash roms now? I'm on the fence as I don't want to risk losing my IMEI again and there doesn't seem to be enough information out there yet to know why / how this happens.
