First, I used DXJF4 firmware [thailand] then I decide to try XWJM2 after flashing I experience some wierd market problem (market try to download a lot of unknown apps) then I switch back to DXJF4 but the problem follow. I try to figure out that Android report incorrect IMEI (it should be 35.... Think I NOT 00004....). First, I think I just misremember but after I've check my warranty card my IMEI is 35.... So, what wrong with it? Can any help me fix market and IMEI problem?

This is not an Illegal post. I don't wasn't to change Imei on hardware but it look like android can't read my imei correctly. I see someone on samdriod have a 000000000000000 imei after flash custom on spica. I think it have a problem with nv_data.bin but I can't fix it

Before I flash the rom, os can read my imei correctly but now it wrong and I suspect this a problem with market loading chinese app

How do you know this happened?

It might be a bug in JP2 (which is an alpha quality firmware), which might not be reading the imei properly. I'm pretty sure that the imei has to be basically be burnt into the hardware these days (so it can't be changed). It's possible you see the incorrect imei but your mobile carrier doesn't.

On mine, I've tried JF4, JG1, JG5, JP2 and now back in JG5 and imei is fine.

If your imei isn't correct (double check with your box), downgrade the firmware first. But tbh, I don't think this is actually possible...

Flash with odin3 process have failed. After reflash again into the JP2. I have purchased some softwares cann't register(Registration required to identify IEMI code). So,I found my I9000's IEMI code has been changed.

I've tried JF7 , JP2 , JP3 ..
IMEI codes have become 004999010640000...

Now, My fw is JP3 . I key *#06# in phone , It shows IMEI code is 00499901064000.
I can not find ways to restore IEMI..

Try downgrading to eclair I mean.. JP3 is another alpha firmware..

And what software do you mean was registered to your Imei?

So your assumption is that the IMEI code has changed because of 1 software applications? Check the box for your phone and compare it to that. It's more likely that your IMEI code is still the same.
