Hey guys,

 

just stumbled across this nice little tool on XDA.

 

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2734161

 

its basically a windows tool to create a IMEI.BAK file, which can be used to restore the IMEI in Mobile Uncle toolbox if the AT command doesnt work.

 

Download is also below as attachement!

 

Here is how to use it :

 

1.download Mobileuncle MTK IMEI Write Tool Mobileuncle MTK IMEI Write Tool.zip

input"Y",input IMEI code

 

finally,create IMEI .BAK,move it to ur phone or SD card

 

2.download mobileuncle from playstore or link above

 

3.need root, run mobileuncle MTK tool,choose IMEI backup and restore,restore IMEI.bak.

 

Really nice tool, thanks to the guy on XDA !

just to let the users know this method worked for my sister in laws INEW V8 and restored both IMEI numbers


if you get confused with the command input


"type y" then press enter


"type IMEI number for IMEI 1" then press enter


"type IMEI number for IMEI 2" then press enter


the IMEI.BAK file will have been generated it should be in the same folder as the tool .zip so create a folder and unzip the file there before running the program


props and thanks go to @kiyee from XDA

I DONT HAVE IMEI 2?
do you have a dual sim device...?


if yes use the same number as IMEI 1 see if this works...sometimes IMEI's are the same in some devices...don't ask me why

please checkout XDA , changing IMEI is illegal and not easy on non MTK phones. Recovering IMEI is ok, but not easy too

no .bak file has created its .exe is it the same?
try again and please post a screen shot of the file that was created...never heard of it creating anything 'but' a .bak file...?
