Warranty went poof
Well... after my tiny adventure of turning my phone into a virgin and immaculate device... I went to Vodafone for a repair. They have samsung tech people there. And after two days, they said they would repair the phone for 264 USD because the garanty was voided. Then they handed me a print-screen with the IMEI in the physical device and another with a window saying IMEI: null/null.
I didn't make a fuss about it and left. Later I typed *#06# and to my surprise I saw my complete IMEI. I rooted the phone again.
I have no idea where they saw the null/null but I have the feeling that due to flash roms or some software installation I screwed the original IMEI.
This guy here www.sammobile.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13140
seems to have solved the issue... problem is I have no EFS backup, and in the EFS folder I have no " .nv_data" file. Only ".nv_data.bak". I copied this file to ",nv_data." and rebooted but to no avail.
So to sum it up... I no longer suspect that it's physical problem related to the sim socket but it's a firmware issue due to software installation, which one I don't have a clue. I only run CF-Root to root and I only applied the ROMs presented in samMobile.
I must have the EFS corrupted in some way. Gah.
Thank you for your atention.
