Backup, Generate & Restore IMEI

Backup, Generate & Restore IMEI

A factory reset of full flash may clean out the IMEI. So it is wise to backup and restore IMEI, or even generate a new file with EMEI
For MediaTek MT6516 the IMEI is located in one of these two locations:

 /data/nvram/md/NVRAM/NVD_IMEI/MP0B_001 (older firmwares)
 /nvram/md/NVRAM/NVD_IMEI/MP0B_001 (rumored location for newer firmwares)
To backup the IMEI, simply backup the MP0B_001 file (using a rooted shell or adb)

 cp /data/nvram/md/NVRAM/NVD_IMEI/MP0B_001 /sdcard/MP0B_001_SAVED

To restore the IMEI, simply restore it, and set proper permissions (using a rooted shell or adb)

 cp /sdcard/MP0B_001_SAVED /data/nvram/md/NVRAM/NVD_IMEI/MP0B_001
 chmod 650 /data/nvram/md/NVRAM/NVD_IMEI/MP0B_001

you can even apply new IMEI by generating a brand new MP0B_001 file. Download their IMEI generation program, use the correct executable (PC, Linux, ARM provided) to generate a new MP0B_001 like this:

Code: <15digit_IMEI_1> <15digit_IMEI_2>
