As we know On N9005 (qualcomm) IMEI number no more stored on EFS partition so no meaning to make backup of only efs.img
Thanks dr ketan - life saver. I managed to nuke my IMEI for the first time while trying to fix a modem issue. I think it was because I'd been using CWM-based recovery all this time and then swapped (on advice for a new ROM) to TWRP.
After much travail and nervous feelings in the pit of my stomach, and trying 3 different ways to rescue things, I tried your IMEI tool.
It didn't work! But on thinking it through I realised I'd been using ROM's I had on my HDD, and none of them were the same as the one I had when I had made a backup that gave me those 3 files.
So I DL'd a BTU ROM and used Odin to install it and VOILA! All back to normal.
Never doubt there is Truth, just doubt that you have it!
