Default [Q] Rooted my Xperia SP and lost IMEI

So i rooted and flashed custom rom Trinity on my SP, then realized i was getting no network signal and when i checked IMEI status it was blank along with my baseband. I did backup my rom but to internal sd which wiped when i factory reset(i know it should have backed it to external). This is my first sony handset root outside of my usual HTC.

I tried relocking bootloader and installing original firmware but still no luck with getting my imei back.

I do know my original imei so is there any way i can reflash it?? Any assistance would be really appreciated...

DONATE TO ME
My guess would be to get the phone to Sony and probably pay for it...

Thanks all, suppose i will end up sending for repair. Tried updating via sony companion but it said that it was up to date already. I was going to try and change update version via build.prop but not sure what numbers to change so the software will update with sony companion.
