Hello everyone my Galaxy Note3 SM-N900L (Korea) imei lost after I update rom.
Can I just flash original firmware or what should I do with it?

Thank you.

If everything else fails and you are left with zero alternatives - there are a few threads that describe how you can recover a N9005 with IMEI 0 and you might be able to adapt that to N900L.

Have a look HERE but make sure you read it all and understand before you do so, as it can hard brick if you mess it up.

Thank you.

Considering you are on the most difficult Korean model, none of the instructions or files on xda can help you -- different bootloader and radio from everyone else.

You better flash the original firmware. If that doesn't work, you probably need to send the phone to the service center for board change.
