IMEI number on i9082 is garbled, No Calls/SMS
Yesterday, I was trying to install the Resurrection Remix Kitkat ROM on my GT-i9082, and it got installed fine, but I wasn't getting any network, no network bars. So I tried that SIM in another phone, and it works fine. That thread said that this might happen, and I may need to flash another modem, which I did, but still nogo. Here is the loist of 3 different modems which I tried:-
I had taken a ROM backup through ROM Manager before flashing the new ROM, so I tried to restore that backup. Restore completed, and I could now see some network bars, but I still couldn't make calls/sms. I noticed that my IMEI number was coming up all garbled, which is probably why I can see signal bars, but can't make any calls/sms. I tried a different SIM in this phone too, and same issue. I have 2 old ROM backups taken from ROM Manager when the phone was working fine, but no separate EFS backups taken, as I wasn't even aware what EFS was until now. I know what the IMEI number is for both the SIM slots. Is there any way I can fix this?
EDIT:- The funny part is, in the status bar, I can see an "Insert SIM" icon, as well as full Network bars, even though there is no SIM inserted in either slots. Sounds fishy?
