Default Zero'ed my IMEI,HELP! iphone personal hotspot & ilex RAT

Well I am without signal & have zero'ed IMEI.
I assume the # on the card cover is the imei, 15 digits.
I flashed the wrong radio & have done a full rsd retsore to ...94.
I will try this next. I have all the components lined up for Win7 64bit with parallels desktop/Mac.
This process seems not to work on the 926. Has anyone tried this or anything else on the M?

Thanks to all for your consideration.
Edit @cellzealot what do you think? Sticky Wicket?

Edit
I am using my resurrected iphone 4s as a phone & hotspot tether for now.
I thought I might share some info/issues about it.
I am on ios-7.0.6 and while I hate the keyboard, Bluetooth-connectivity & browsers, the voice recognition for dialing (not to mention Siri) is better than the M. Also the stock "personal hotspot" is lame. It refuses to reconnect to the M after a call & at other times too. I tried insomnia & it seems to help. You must keep to hotspot screen open to keep a connection. But you must, !, close the same screen to get the off button to stick off!!

ILEX R.A.T TUTORIAL
As to restoring cydia apps when re-jailbreaking there is nothing as good as ilex rat (& source saver too).
Yet ilex puts a springboard icon that is terribly misleading. The app is to be run from mobile terminal. And as such it is good. You can create a .zip of all your .deb files, move them off the phone with iexplorer then use the same to put them in var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall. Unzip with ifile. Remove zip. Reboot.

Android File Transfer SUCKS! Is there a no root solution for Osx? I am resorting to Parallels DeskTop-W7. Wait Wait Wait: My OTG fix works!

Did you try the method described in the RAZR HD forum using EFS Professional to write back your IMEI?
That tool has the function to convert your IMEI into the proper little endian format for the hex data.

Have you tried just reflashing the fsg.mbn and modem?

Yea. Both in the xml's : ...94 & 4.0.4.

Yes. seems to write but does not.
It is read only. How to find a bit to flip?

What about

8035 or any other seem may have a lock bit?
What about the Op's version?

I did get 4g working on 404!

It may help me understand better if you explain exactly how this occurred. You say you flashed the "wrong radio" using CWM.

Which radio and how did you flash it in CWM?

Do you have QPST installed and know how to use the Software Download client to make a backup .qcn file?

If so, have you made a backup before when everything was functioning?
If you haven't made one, try running one now with no SIM installed and save it and send it to me so I can take a look at it.
There are a number of other NV Items involved that may affect the issue and that is one way to dump and examine them.

You say you got 4G working once under the ICS radio? That should not be possible without a valid IMEI.

Sorry, but I have many more questions than answers at this stage.


The 8035 NV Item for unlocking the MIP profile only affects CDMA/EvDO 3g authentication and the values are read from the SIM and written to the MIP at boot when USIM based authentication is enabled as it is on these models. The IMEI is not referenced at all in the MIP profile.

I can recovery restore to 404 & post a ss but I am on my iphone, activated right now. If it is such an amazing anomaly I will.

I was mostly interested in how it happened.
The fact that it worked at all indicates the IMEI isn't actually blank or 0s but can't be read by the radio properly due to some other factor.
