You Can Use It Too, On Your Device If Your Partition Is Like This
"\data\nvram\md\NVRAM\NVD_IMEI\MP0B_001"

Here "MP0B_001" Is The IMEI File And Its Corrupt [GENERALLY AFTER FLASHING STOCK ROM]
Then Follow This Guide To Rectify That Problem.

Wait wait wait... The IMEI is gone?? how can the IMEI be gone? it is how the telecom directorate (Govt.) monitors each phone... thats the reason a couple of years ago all cellular devices without an IMEI (chinese imports mainly) stopped working (they could no longer make calls, but it could be used as a media player).

I accidentally restored the EFS partition from one Nexus 5 to another and ended up with an IMEI of all zeros. It can happen. I was able to repair it with Qualcomm software, but the phone still doesn't see the network. Possibly an antenna issue...

Anyway, it can definitely happen. Also, it is illegal to change your IMEI (in the US at least). I would think it's OK to repair one however. I think the OP should specify that this method should only be used to restore an IMEI to the numbers listed on the device. These can usually be found inside the back cover and on the SIM tray. Check documentation for your model.

Help Needed !! IMEI Fix for Android One not working for me...

I was using CM11 sprout earlier and tried moving back to Stock. I lost my IMEI during this time. I have moved to stock kitkat by doing scatter loading of stock firmware. I have rooted my Android one with CWM recovery. I have used the above tools and generated the MTB_001 and created a zip and installed it with recovery. But, still i have my IMEI as invalid. I even tried replacing the MTB_001 file manually using ES_File explorer and giving permissions 777. Still no luck.

Can someone help me out on how to load proper IMEI as am completely blocked :crying::crying::crying::crying:

Thanks in Advance.

First point to note is that only full formatting makes the device lose IMEI,not normal data,system,cache formatting which is required for installing custom roms.When your partition table is messed up you get lots of errors when trying to wipe or mount any partition from custom recoveries,thus leaving you with only option to format before flashing stock rom through sp flash tools.It is after this flash that nvram loses your unique IMEI number.In my case I had backed up my stock rom through cwm recovery,now to restore my IMEI, I just extract the contents of /data/nvram/.....NVD_IMEI from my backup( three files in total) and push it to my to the same directory using adb push command,and it works for me.There is no need to push three cos only one file is relevant .But this is only temporary solution,cos after every reset you will lose your IMEI. It is better to backup the nvram partiton using dd command so that it could be flashed later,which would persist through installs.

    IMEI Repair for Clone I9600 (MTK6572, Alps)

    I just want to share my IMEI experience. I have been scouring the internet for a solution for my invalid IMEI. I have recently formatted my Samsung S5 Korean clone (MTK6572). I was not aware that doing so would erase the IMEI of the phone. I just found out about it after I have inserted my sim and not able to connect to the network. I have tried different solutions like MTK Droid tools, SP Flashtool, Mobile Uncle, IMEI Changer (via playstore), etc. However, it is not easy to repair the invalid IMEI because you have to download a lot of stuff over the internet before you can really fix the problem. Downloading the necessary files can be easy especially if you are resourceful and patient. On the one hand, some issues may occur like the phone not being compatible with the files you are trying to flash via SP Flash Tool. I was working on my IMEI for hours to no luck. I was checking PlayStore for some apps that would allow me to fix the IMEI without the use of different .exe files. Luckily, I found Chamelephon. It automatically fixed my IMEI problem. It worked for me, maybe it will work for you.

    :)
