    Restoring Lost/Corrupt IMEI:
    If you have already lost your phone’s IMEI, do this-

    Note down your phone’s IMEI. You can find it below the phone’s battery or on the box that it came in when you bought it.
    Create a backup of the corrupt IMEI file and open it with NotePad++ or any other text editor.
    Separate your IMEI number into blocks of two digits, leaving the first digit alone. Suppose your phone’s IMEI is 35516705558781901, separate it like this: 3 55 16 70 55 58 78 19 01
    Now add “A” after the first digit, and reverse the sequence of the two numbers in each block of 2 digits. Add 08 in the beginning of the IMEI. Here is an example: 08 3A 55 61 07 55 85 87 91 10
    Having done this, replace the first nine values in the NV block with the converted IMEI.
    Click on Write button on the NV-items_reader_writer tool.
    When it’s done, disconnect device and reboot it.
    Your phone’s IMEI should be back. Do not forget to share your thoughts via comments and this tutorial via social media buttons. Cheers!
