Hi All,

I've seen a few similar threads to this, but i can't find a clear cut answer so had to start a new one. The problem is whenever i try and flash a custom ROM, my SIM card is not able to be detected, no IMEI number or anything network related except Wireless.

It's not the SIM card, or the connection etc as i have tried a few different SIM cards and all with the same result. Whenever i revert back to stock ROM, the problem is resolved, so i think it's something to do with the custom ROM having some incorrect files for my phone region.

After digging through a few of the similar posts, i decided to take backups of the efs/modemefs directories from when my phone is working, then copied then into the system folder after i flashed the custom ROM (using Root Browser). However, this didn't make any difference.

Does anyone have any idea if there are some other files i need to copy, or if my method of copying is the issue ?

I'm back on stock ROM, so no problems with my phone, but it's really annoying i can't try new ones.

Many Thanks,

Dan

No, its the standard GT-I9070 -it's originally HK firmware and i've seen a few other threads knocking around on this so i'm not sure if it's specific to handsets in this region. It's very annoying though, the phone is not locked or anything, so i can't work out what the problem is

Did you set right permission after restoring the efs backup folder?

Yes, i did set the correct permissions, in the end i followed another guide that had a nice little ADB script that copied the whole partition, directory structure and permissions - rather than using rootbrowser. Anyway, that made no difference but i've just read the guide in the link you posted and it sounds promising, i will try it out in a couple of days when i get a chance ad report back - thanks very much for that - it does seem like HK phones have this problem all the time. Cheers

Yes, it was nothing to do with the EFS etc folders, it was all down to the tee folder as mentioned in the link you posted, something funny about handsets in this region. Anyway - thanks !
