Hello guys,

This is the first method how to work with both sim 1 and sim 2 Imei's if you mistakly made by 'format all' option in sp flash tool.




WARNINGS:
- Possible risk of data loss ! Backup your files and contents !
- NO dongle and NO box is required.
- NEVER try to flash in "format all" mode ! Otherwise, you will LOSE all secure and identifying infos for your device. Like IMEI.
- Keep your backup files safe and secure ! If you can, encrypt them.
- Never try to share your backups or your security and privacy will be compromised.

- USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS.

This method was released by HALABTECH and it's working ONLY with custom rom.
Big thanks to VD171 who shared the patched file.
If somebody has an idea how to implement this patch in stock rom it would be great too
..


We need Engineering Rom to be installed first to be able to access meta mode.
Download Maui Meta or Modem Meta to write both original Imei's.
Next,flash the latest Miui rom 12.0.7 global and after it is finished with flashing before it goes to reboot press vol- to enter fastboot mode.
In Fastboot mode flash vbmeta and twrp.
In TWRP at first make format data,then reboot to twrp again,then wipe dalvik,data,cache and flash Pixel Experience custom rom and magisk 22,then make format data again,then restart the phone in fastboot again.
After put your phone in Fastboot Mode extract the patched file,(IMPORTANT) rename it to 'md1img' and flash it exactly like this: fastboot flash md1img md1img.img
Next and last step just reboot it by 'fastboot reboot' and very important thing, at first boot when you see the google logo immediately press the power button to restart the phone to be able to work normally.
Check if you have in both sim slots imeis and signals.

The patch file is the MD1IMG.img of the ENGINEERING ROM AL2522-Merlin-V039-Q-0513.
Here, you can find this file and other MD1IMG versions for MERLIN:

Ok i mannaged to bypass nvdata and able to flash stock rom. but i cant still unlock the bootloader because when i try to attach to mi account in developer option it fails. because it needs imei to bind.
silahkan terjemahkan ke english.
banyak tutorial yang membingungkan.
jika ingin unlockbootloader cukup menulis imei sim 2.
jika bermasalah penulisan imei ambil file preload dan md1img dari rom_eng.
jika ingin eksperimen bermainlah di md1img.

----------

MOD EDIT: English Translation Below

please translate to english.
a lot of confusing tutorials.
if you want to unlock bootloader just write imei sim 2.
if you have problems writing imei take the preload and md1img files from rom_eng.
if you want to experiment play on md1img.

inti dari penulisan imei hanya preload(dari rom_eng) dan md1img.img(bisa pakai md1img.img dari versi lain atau dari rom_eng).
prosesnya
1. flash lebih bagus dengan pilihan "format&download"
2. kita harus backup terlebih dahulu file tambahan bisa dari redmi 9 normal atau kalau mentok ya ponsel kita yang hilang imei.
3. file backup yang saya saranin : nvcfg,nvram,proinfo,protect1,protect2
{file ini kita baca di scatter dari address dan partition, kita ubah NONE menjadi file(contohnya nvcfg.img), false dibawahnya kita ubah menjadi true, ini kita edit melalui note++}
backup ini berguna untuk file tambahan penguat sinyal komunikasi dan data jaringan.
4. boleh flash format total atau hanya file preload dan md1img.img(file rom_eng). setelah flash bagusnya unlockbootloader.
5. format manual menggunakan flashtool nvdata dan nvram (nilai format ada di scatter, address dan partition)
6. buka mauimeta (10.18versi) kita tulis imei 1 dan 2, lalu restart
7. ponsel akan error tapi tenang, kita format lagi dengan flashtool nvdata dan nvram
8. buka lagi mauimeta dan hanya tulis imei sim 2
9. selesai bila kita kembali ke flashtool, kita centang file nvcfg,nvram,proinfo,protect1,protect2,spmw,scp,sspm,tee lalu flash dan restart ponsel
jaringan ponsel akan lebih segar, imei 1 dan 2 terbaca, komunikasi jaringan cepat dan lancar,
catatan :
• perlu dibuat scatter menggunakan note++
• perlu backup file yang diperlukan

MOD EDIT: English Translation Below

The essence of writing IMEI is only preload (from rom_eng) and md1img.img (you can use md1img.img from other versions or from rom_eng).
the process
1. flash is better with the "format&download" option
2. We must first backup additional files from the normal redmi 9 or if it's stuck, our cellphone has lost its IMEI.
3. backup files that I recommend: nvcfg,nvram,proinfo,protect1,protect2
{We read this file in the scatter from address and partition, we change NONE to a file (for example nvcfg.img), we change false below it to true, we edit this via note++}
This backup is useful for additional files of communication signal boosters and network data.
4. You can flash the total format or just the preload file and md1img.img(rom_eng file). after flash the good unlockbootloader.
5. manual format using flashtool nvdata and nvram (format values are in scatter, address and partition)
6. open mauimeta (10.18version) we write imei 1 and 2, then restart
7. the phone will error but calm down, we format it again with flashtool nvdata and nvram
8. Open Mauimeta again and write only IMEI SIM 2
9. finished when we return to flashtool, we check the files nvcfg, nvram, proinfo, protect1, protect2, spmw, scp, sspm, tee then flash and restart the phone
mobile network will be fresher, imei 1 and 2 are read, network communication is fast and smooth,
notes :
• need to create scatter using note++
• need to backup necessary files

    Flash the miui firmware again and then unlock the bootloader.
