[Q] Baseband/IMEI unknown on MT6589 and no original firmware available, how to fix?
A friend of mine did something stupid and tried to install a CWM-recovery for his MT6589 (model: AT-AS50SE) and killed his baseband in the proces. No backups are available and both the Serial Number, baseband and IMEI say unknown. Basicly I think his NVRAM is fried and restoring the correct IMEI information on Android level doesn't work because of the broken baseband.
The device looks like a probable iOcean X7 Elite clone, but I haven't been able to find any roms with this baseband version and the original ROM is not available (the company hasn't responded yet). Also, I'm not able to use any of the tools (SN Write Tool, Maui META 3G, IMEI & SN Writer) because it won't go into META mode (because of the broken recovery mode, I can't go into recovery mode anymore) or because I don't have the correct Modem and AP database.
Can anybody provide me a backup of their AT-AS50SE or a compatible device so I can restore the baseband? Or does anybody have an other idea how to restore the baseband on this MT6589?
