Lightbulb Galaxy S4 GT-I9500 Repair IMEI "NULL/NULL"

Necessary Files
/ / Odin v3.07.zip;
/ / GT-i9500 fix_imei_null.zip;



- Open Odin
- Extract the. ZIP file, place the file in PDA [the phone has to be switched to Download Mode]
- Press START
- End! : -))


That's it, simple steps to retrieve the IMEI of S4, damaged by trying to change the imei with another model.

Note;If after these steps the imei still null/null then the problem is hardware,this tested on 2 phones with imei null,after write this file the imei back to original

Hello, My name is Angel. I have problem with the imei of my S4 GT-I9500, it's not null but it's the fake one(004999010640000/01) I've been searching for the solution for long time now...no box can confirm repairing imei of model I9500 yet.

So, I'd like to ask is this work for fixing the fake imei also?...

Thank you so much.

Best regards,
Angel S.

Hey thanks, it worked fine.... Do you have similar tips for Galaxy S3 as well. Or can I try this one on that model as well, as both of them are almost similar ones. But as you said it's exclusively for S4 so I am quite confused.

OP, thank you for the file.

My question, how does this .tar differ from a stock .tar? what changes did you make? I'd like to do this on other GS4 models... SPH-L720 specifically.
