Default IMEI Problem (0049...)

hello guys ,
I have a big problem with imei.. I was using my phone normally , i installed the samsung official jb firmware with odin, everything was fine , then after 2 hours my phone shuted down. I opened it again and see that there is no sim card and there is no lock screen page.. I search it very very much and handled the lockscreen issue but couldnt fix the my imei problem at all. I tried a lot of way to fix it but no chance.
now I have an imei like 0049...
is there anyone to help me here?

You lost your original IMEI and you have a "developer" IMEI now.
If you made a backup of your /efs partition before you might be able to restore it (please search for threads handling this yourself).

If you do not have a backup - bad luck (I myself have a Note like this).

Starting with ICS and JB there is a check for the IMEI in android.policy.jar. If you have a 0049... no luck.

You can try to change your SIM Pin (old one can be equal to new one) - this can activate your SIM card.
Alternative: an old android.policy.jar from an early leaked Samsung release...

Here are the imei files from sgs2. Just try to copy them in the right place :

If You could point me at a folder where those files normally are, I could send You files from my Note.

Ok, I've found it. Copy imei folder under /efs/ and set permissions to 666.

Actually I don't care about that. I just wanted to help him, as I already had such a problem and solved it this way.

I actually tried cloning my imei from one note to another. It does not work like that.
