I lost my imei number a lil. Time ago and I don't know what could be the cause of this


I tried two different things that day i.e.
I flashed a wifi direct file for kitkat 4.4 based rom and then I partitioned my sd card and after sometime I lost my imei no.
So any one can tell me what could be the reason

If you have backed up your efs.img you can restore it.otherwise you have to flash stock ROM

Mate I am not finding any mistakes but look at the reason of corrupting efs ..."flashing official rom via odin"

Solution - flash stock rom via odin .

Is it really possible
