Greetings Acuicultor.

I'm also having the same problem.
I've been loosing my imei while using Nameless ROM. I downgraded to DDLF2 it was running fine. And a couple days ago imei fully disappeared.
Tried almost everything (if not everything).
I have the efs backup; and older cwm backups. But none seem to restore it by any means. I'm out of solutions.
I am ATM with Nameless ROM again in hope that changing the partitions to their prev state will help me recover. But nothing so far ..

Any easy way? Any tips?
I got the hex editor and terminal and am open to suggestions.

Thanks in advance

You can try flash froyo firmware and see if imei come back if not try to restore imei with dhiru's way look for his thread in general section. Good luck.

If EFS is Corrupt:
Just reflash a ROM backup with cwm.
Open Galaxy Unlock app; lock the phone. Remove SIM; Restart and re-unlock.
Result: My EFS is back and consistent.
Imei is still: Null/Null

There's also a method on Sammobile forum.
In which you can flash a blank efs.

Now i need a way to change it / re-write it.. Check what's wrong with Radio and Bootloader (and how to fix).

I don't have service mode to write my imei. No idea why. Everyone has it, but not me...
After calling svcMode it doesn't show objects (buttons).
(I get service mode title and black page).

I also have a backup of "service mode.apk". But... Cannot install it. System refuses to install.

Restoring my efs backup doesn't work. (Either from cwm or Odin)
Am I doing anything wrong!?
Tried both methods (through apk; flash; PC app... And nothing...)

EFS Professional doesn't recognize my device...

Running Out of resources. But I'm not done yet.

As far as i read, an hex editor can fix it.
But its not my area of expertise (yet).

:sly: SSDD... Moving on to find solutions.

I'm posting the actual Device State.
Maybe you can see something else that i can try on.

Try this way...

Delete efs partition. Power off and remove SIM. Power on. After booting a new efs partition will be created. Now restore your backup and reboot without SIM. Check IMEI. And let us know what you see!

Update:
Got Nameless ROM (again); installed exposed and a certain tool to help me enter my imei.
Due to some forum rules I won't clarify more about it.
Now I have my imei like example below:

842783286434 / null

But the device doesn't recognize the SIM card yet.

If this step I've done can be helpful to try other methods then I'm reading.
@SAM
Thanks for the tip.
By the way how do you delete the partition?
I already tried deleting just the efs folder inside root directory.
Either way I'll do that tomorrow, and report asap.
