Hello, apologies for the lengthy post.
I bought a used G780F, noticed it was rooted after taking home, but no big deal. Tried flashing it with Odin with HOME CSC, but it got stuck in a bootloop so I had to factory reset it, but it managed to update and everything was fine until I noticed emergency calls only...
I checked the IMEI status on my countries website, it was blocked for not being registered, so the carrier unblocked it and I just had to wait to get signal again. It's been a week since it got unblocked, so I should be getting service. The carrier told me it's unlocked so it's likely an issue with the phone, and I believe so too. My IMEI and S/N show up fine when using *#06#, I've basically tried every fix except Chimera tool as the license is way too expensive for me right now. Any help or advice would appreciated, thanks so much!

Well, I have the same exact issue.

I found out that this is a live demo unit that has been modified to run on a fake IMEI number to make calls.

My concern was that the root was interfering with my banking app and so I had to flash a new firmware to remove the root.

Interestingly, when I tried to remove it prior to flashing it kept coming back everytime I reboot the phone.

I literally did the same, but I already knew that my phone is a Live Demo, and I took my chances and got Status NG, so I re Rooted the phone and went to a Software Shop that fixed the IMEI for 5$, and yesterday I updated the Magsik App and got the IMEI Status back and looking for what the shop did, as I confirmed he didn't use Chimera tool
