So, I recently bricked my A7000. Found a rom somewhere online and flashed it with SPTools. Now it boots fine but I get the "INVALID IMEI" error.

I rooted it gain, got into engineer mode with MTK Engineering Mode and run the command AT +EGMR=1,7,"blabla" but it's still not working. I get AT command is sent: ERROR

Please help...

    I had this issue once. Perhaps, my answer may help: How to fix "Invalid IMEI " after Factory reset?

  • @Firelord The first one did nothing. For the second, Maui can't detect the phone, it says "[36] BootROM start command passed, but target has no response untill timeout.." the phone displays some chinese characters and says it is in meta mode (with verry bad grammar). Dec 10, 2015 at 11:48
  • Did you try using mtk droid tool ? Dec 10, 2015 at 11:56

Solved it. I rooted with SPTools and used Chamelephon to enter the IMEI's (if you have dual sim, enter both at the same time!).
