Once you have flashed your phone successfully you will now have to fix the IMEI:

  • Type the following number sequence:*#7465625# or *#*#3646633#*#*
  • Select the call or enter button
  • Search for your CDS information and select it.
  • Search for Radio information.

If you have dual SIM, there will be two options for you, select the one which you want to go with. Now to change IMEI number: At +EGMR=1,7,"IMEI_1" and "At +EGMR=1,10,"IMEI_2" input your new IMEI number into the 1 and 2 fields.

First, try a hard reset and if you are lucky your phone will accept that and allow you to re install everything as if the phone was brand new from the store. Most likely however you will have to flash ROM your phone and the steps are above however I do not have your specific device to give you a link for your ROM download so do a search but the steps above are standard for all flash ROM downloads.
