- Going through recovery and factory reseting would not work.
- Unable to find original firmware for any carrier from here i used mexico telcel 4.3 official to flash to stock usin odin v3.09
- The flash worked perfectly and wifi blue tooth and just about everything worked perfectly except imei showed 004999010640000
- i attempted to unlock phone with z3x since it has autoroot for this model but no luck i kept getting error coode 0001
- Various places i read online mentioned that to root n7100 on 4.3 phone had to be factory unlock so i searched and searched and found root files for n7100 that made no mention of phone being unlocked, i did this with odin 1.85 verison and proper root file
- i successfully rooted phone
- after i unlocked using z3x v16.8 tool
- after unlocking phone i attempted to repair imei with z3x but was unable to for some reason i had to re-root phone with odin 1.85
- after resinstalling root i did imei repair with z3x box and results were positive. the imei was repaired and im able to make and receive calls aswell as use data plan, here is the proof with pictures

SO the ONLY WAY to rewrite the IMEI is USING a F***ing BOX !?

seriously, i have the IMEI number written in the back of my phone but i can`t rewrite it unless i buy a BOX ... that sucks. Hope some hacker or something fis the way to just do it with a PC without a box and ****
