Default [Q] No IMEI after FTF flash

Hi,

I flashed the generic UK FTF this morning via Flashtool. All absolutely fine, no errors, clean reboot etc.

No SIM service, and IMEI of 000000000000000

Any help greatly appreciated.
Devices: Galaxy S5, Gear Fit
ROMs: Stock, Unrooted

Downgrading frm 4.3 will cause IMEI lost...
Is a known issue...
So u can just flast Nut's .532 if u keen to do so...

If you want to downgrade from .290 or .136 use [NUT]'s .532 FTF and follow the instructions in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2593918

will work every time
