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 Dec 10 '15 at 10:45
  • @Firelord You mean method #2? Method 1# is exactly what i did to get here.. – user1824034 Dec 10 '15 at 10:52
  • Consider following both the methods and tell us the results. – Firelord Dec 10 '15 at 10:53
  • @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). – user1824034 Dec 10 '15 at 11:48
  • Did you try using mtk droid tool ? – lord-ralf-adolf Dec 10 '15 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!).
