First Flash Stock rom then flash IMEI . If you reflash rom then imei will again vanish. To prevent imei invalid problem you have to flash rom without flashing preloader.

You can get imei number back by following the instructions in this post .
NOTE : Type the imei number which is shown on the back side of your phone.

Once you get the imei number back and if you again reflash rom it will again wipe your imei number.
To avoid this problem you should uncheck the preloader file. Check in the attachment
Your imei number will not vanish.

Changing IMEI is illegal. But if you lose your IMEI no, then you need to manually set it. But the legal line here is narrow, you insert 1 digit wrong and you are breaking the law

becareful when you deal with IMEI number, it can be very dangerous, if something goes wrong you will be jailed. I dunno why would someone flash micromax a1 stock into spice or vice versa, it is a bad movie.
