Unhappy i have the same issue
[QUOTE=revolutionyzer;50901388]I had the same problem. But ultimately solved it.

If your baseband version is unknown, then you hav only one way to solve the issue.

>Download the a116 stock rom.

>click on scatter loading and select the 'emmc_scr' file from the stock rom.

>options >tick usb mode and da download >Force to high speed

> connect the phone without sim cards , sd card and battery.

>now click on format > then tick the first option ( whole flash )

After this, unplug the phone. Close the tool.

> Reopen the sp flash tool.

>select the same emmc file and do the same with options.

> connect the phone

> download.

This will take some time.

After this is done , follow the wngineer mode procedure , it'll work.... !

few days back in normal condition i got a message that my internal sd card is damaged & no network was detected.

i formatted my internal sd card & imei no was showing invalid.

i tried to send imei no. using engg. mode but it says ap failed to send.

since i have very little knowledge about android, please suggest me the best way to solve this issue.

my phone has jellybean 4.1.

can i upgrade it to 4.2 in this situation????????

since it has been a headache to me since few days please help me out.................

thanx in advance

This should also work on A210 Canvas 4 HD
There is a great Video on Youtube by Sameer Nagdeve to resolve the Invalid IMEI issue very easily with this MTK Engineering mode. MANY THANKS TO SAMEER NAGDEVE. It was not available before when many of us lost IMEI due to mis-adventures to solve screen flicker problems etc.

WARNING: This is not for everyone. If you dont know any command, just leave it. By just playing around with options without exact known expectations, you may end up in fainted phone.

EDIT: More info in Post # 8 about another method.

Hope this helps some.

Some more references:
1) This method is successfully worked for @Johnny199314 (17-08-2014) on his A117. The chipset of A116 and A117 is same and this method should work for A116 also. Always use at your own risk.

2) WORKED PERFECT for Himanshu Balayan (reference) Always use at your own risk.

3) This also worked for many Always use at your own risk.

THANK YOU guys this working i tryed in my micromax A115 my imei 0000000 b4 flashing i tryd this is working 100% wooooow {sorry for my bad English}

Did you restart your phone after sending the command? The imei will be set after a reboot.

Smile Another convenient method:
So after continuously switching back and forth roms to test whether they are bugless enough for daily use, I had this annoying problem of the IMEI no. going invalid or null (null in case of CyanogenMod).
I always had to go through that lengthy engineer mode procedure again and again and it was pretty annoying..
But here's a really simple solution to this that I found:
You need to have a valid IMEI first (this is for those who flash often or are planning to flash a new rom)
1. Verify that your imei no.s are correct in your current rom.
2. Download Mobile Uncle Tools from Play Store (or apk, whatever floats your boat )
3. Look for IMEI Backup/Restore in the menu.

4. Back up your imei numbers. They'll be stored as imei.bak on your sdcard.
5. I'd personally recommend backing upon both internal and external, just to be totally failsafe.
6. Now everytime you flash a new rom and get an invalid imei error, just install MobileUncle tools and restore from the sdcard.

7. You might need to reboot for changes to apply succesfully.

Hope that helps y'all
