  1. Hi, I've been trying to fix the IMEI on my Zopo 980+ with no luck. I've flashed stock ROM and it boots but there is no IMEI and no baseband. I've tried mktools but get the error ERROR :pttycmd1 device NOT found!
    Any ideas how to fix this?

      The stock rom is updatable only from sp flash tools.
      And after flashing the stock rom the same problem is coming of no network.But sim card is detected.

    5. do a format+download all in sp flash tool

      Delete
    6. Format except bootloader ?

      Delete

  9. Hey brO, previously I tried installing TWRP RECOVERY in my MT6572 device but after flashing it I lost my IMEI. Although I had made NVRAM backup with MTK DROID TOOLS but it won't restore my IMEI. Then I manually copied original nvram folder and pasted it in my rom but it also did not work. Then I flashed stock rom through CWM but still no luck. Then I tried Flashing stock ROM with SP FLASH TOOLS but it is stucked after pressing download button! I installed proper drivers, removed battery then connected my mobile! So, what I'm supposed to do?
    Any Help would be highly appreciated :)

    1. you need to press download first, remove battery from device then place the battery again but do not turn on the phone and then connect it again but do not turn on the phone

      Delete
    2. I did as you said but it connected with battery not without battery and only for a second! I saw in DEVICES AND PRINTER that there was a device naming MediaTek PRELOADER USB VCOM port (COM4) appeared for 1 second only. And the Moment SP Flash Tools detected my device a popup came in SP flash tools saying """PMT changed, it must be downloaded!""" I don't know what it means! Maybe driver is not properly installed! But what should I do if drivers specifically for my device are not available! I've already installed many drivers for MTK in my PC but they are not specifically for my device.. My Device is GFIVE BRAVO A5 (MT6572)..
      Plzzzz help me! I'm unable to find drivers! Tried Miracle Box too but it also won't recognize my device :( Nothing can be done! Only you(MTK HACKER) are my last hope :(

    3. the partitions in your device have been changed. You must format your whole device and flash your entire ROM again
      In SP Flash tool instead Download Only select format + download

  10. i have my flashable stock rom, does it have a scatter file inside? I accidentally formatted mmcblck04 wrong path lead to no signal/ imei= null , help please

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't have any scatter file , or any just my flashable stock rom and ported roms

      Delete
    2. it should work but only 60% chances of working. You must find a SP Flashable tool firmware for your device which has scatter file

      Delete
    3. What do you mean by sp flashable tool firmware?

      Delete
    4. Hmm ive research , will it work if i will use different phone but same in specs and same chipset? Like mt6582 same as mine and also dual sim?

      Delete
    5. NO, unless you want to hard brick your device

      Delete
    6. In my device they dont release its firmware, iive already try to go to their site but they dont have it and also does some research, aw man how am i going to fix this

      Delete
    7. I only need this and not the whole firmware? Right? sec_ro or ser_co like i. Need to check this only? Or any solution?

      Delete

  18. how to get invalid imei , my internal memory deleted during repartition of internal memory

    ReplyDelete
  19. I could add my desired IMEI (which were my 2sim IMEI codes and one for each seem). everything is ok except for when I factory reset, the IMEI resets to invalid value. how to make it permanent?

    Replies
    1. are you not using the IMEI which your device came with ? It is illegal to use fake IMEI

      Delete
    2. yes, i used this app to recover my original IMEI. after flashing the rom IMEI was something like this : 13579246... it was clear that this was fake and i used this app to take my phone to previous status and i know fake IMEIs are fake. there is a weird fact that although my IMEI was fake but i could call and send/receive sms messages regularly! so is there anyway for me to make this change permanent?

    1. sorry, I do not support using fake IMEI's

      Delete
    2. no i do not want to make a fake IMEI. I flashed my phone because of some malfunctioning and constant force closes, because y511 is a dual sim smartphone, after flash completed I saw both IMEIs are set to the same value like this: sim1: 135790246811202 and sim2: 135790246811202 which are clearly fake IMEIs (if you want i can send you pictures of them to see i'm not doing something illegal!) and are not the same as what is printed at back of my phone on the label under the battery! thought these are fake ones i can regularly receive or dial calls without any problems. but using your MTK Droid I could set back my IMEIs to what was before flashing the rom, and everything is ok now. I am not doing an illegal thing, just i set them to what they were. and the only problem is when i factory reset the IMEIs switch back to that fake numbers: 135790246811202! i just wanted you to help me overcome that. but it seems you consider recovering the original IMEI as illegal job. ok np. I send my phone to trash. thanks for your support and reply man!
