Couldn't resist testing for IMEI loss....

I installed TWRP recovery via Goo app, backed up CM10 (installed via CWM) with TWRP, used TWRP to flash CWM recovery, restored a CWM stock deodexed nandroid, reinstalled TWRP to make a nandroid of the stock ROM, restored the stock via TWRP to ensure it worked and then restored CM10, which is what I've been running since 7/20. I tested for IMEI loss along the way and (so far) it's still there.

That means that I must've been lucky then. I had cm10 then decided to go back to my nandroid of stock. I still have my imei after flashing from that stock nandroid to aokp then back to a deodexed stock rom. I used cwm every time.

I really dont think CM10/9/AOKP are the culprits for lost IMEI, in fact CWM alone may not even be to blame, I think its a combination of factors that can cause IMEI loss, one thing I think is how CWM is flashed to the phone, I've personally only used ADB to flash CWM to the phone, and havent (thank god) experienced the IMEI loss issue, however there have been reports that flashing CWM via odin and then flashing CM9/10/AOKP from stock causes IMEI loss...I'm pretty sure its quite a random occurrence though.

Losing imei is very very very rare or you would see rom threads full of crying... Cm and aokp are probably not the culprits but it's so far the only thing other than cwm that seems to be reoccurring in the occurrences that imei does disappear. Usually it seems by people using nandroid backup somewhere before or after flashing cm9/10

Thanks!
I really appreciate your making TWRP possible for our ATT SGIII - I couldn't find my Internal SD Card at first - but with a little digging I finally found it - anyway -

I have a question - I have several backups that I had originally made with CWM - what are my options for trying to use them in the fuure?
Do I have to flash back to CWM in order to use Nandroids that I created when I was using CWM Recovery? Is there a way I can create a flashable zip or at least maybe a TAR file? I have never done either and am not sure what steps I would need to take ??

Any help is appreciated
