Default HTC One M7 IMEI missing, phone restarting

Hey Guys,

so my HTC One m7 suddenly started rebooting after every one minute or so, i later realized when the phone turns on the phone does not pick any signal or recognise my sim. I showed the phone to my local HTC Shop (Pakistan) who entered some code to check IMEI the phone showed no info on screen. From this the guy said the chip with the IMEI number on it has probably short and the phone no longer can be repaired locally. He said to send the phone to HTC Dubai for repair as only they have the equipment to write the imei back on the chip or something like that.

I would like to know, if there is any way to repair the IMEI, if not then is there any way to keep the phone from rebooting every minute so that i can at least use it as a mini tab.

Also, is there any way to backup my data from the phone on my PC as the phone keeps on restarting and i cant copy data.

I was using HD Revolution Rom with latest CWM. Installed cyanogen mod 11, same issue.

Phone does not restart when in recovery.

Regards

I think this is not imei brick , just a radio problem, you need to flash radio rom for that, you won't lose anything just flash n give feedback

You might want to take a look at @mazen_al_ahmar thread HTC one M7 S-OFF HBOOT 1.57.0000 + Restoring baseband and IMEI. It sounds like he had the same issue as you do. Check out the thread it might help you.

Default imei

If your s-off. Go into fastboot and use command "fastboot oem writeimei" with your imei. It worked for me

Well did everything, flashed the latest radio 4A.25.3263.21,
used fastboot write imei command, s-off, s-on, original recovery, tried original RUU which failed.
Installed latest HD Revolution 71 rom, refashed new radio, still IMEI and Baseband missing however i can see IMEI in the barcode in Bootloader.

I am out of ideas. Starting to think this might be a hardware issue after all.
SAD

EDIT: if i use the getvar imei commad in fastboot, it shows the correct imei though
