I tried upgrading the OS of my phone from Jelly bean to Kit-Kat. I rooted the phone first and then installed the new ROM using ODIN. Earlier it was working fine but the wifi wasn't working properly so I again downgraded the OS to Jelly bean but now it shows no network. I went in the service menu using the code *#0011# there it shows IMEI corruption. I even showed to many service centers they couldn't fix the problem they tried to overwrite the IMEI but they weren't successful in doing so some even told that it can't be repaired. The phone is out of warranty. Is there any way to get rid of the problem without changing the motherboard ?

You cannot downgrade Kitkat to Jelly Bean coz u have new bootloader now. Make a full wipe and install Kit Kat again
