HOW TO CHANGE YOUR IMEI NUMBER ON ANY MTK ANDROID PHONE USING TOOLHERO
ToolHero was so helpful to me in several cases where other techniques failed. I was able to fix Unknown IMEI or Invalid IMEI on so many MTK devices using the ToolHero app including my Infinix Hot 2 X510.
Note: You need a rooted device to enable
You need a rooted device to enable you to edit your phone’s IMEI number.
You can root your Android or MTK device using Kingroot APK or iRoot on your Pc.
- Open the ToolHero app on your rooted MTK Android phone.
- Click on Engineering Mode.
- In the options, choose Super engineering mode.
- Tap on Connectivity, CDS Information and finally Radio Information.
- Select the Sim you wish to change its default IMEI.
- PHONE 1 is Sim 1 and PHONE 2 is SIM 2.
- Now you will see an AT+ written at the top, tap the end and add the line: EGMR=1,7,”NEW SIM 1 IMEI” or EGMR=1,10,”NEW SIM 2 IMEI” depending on the SIM and tap on Send Command.
If it says Command not accepted in user build, please insert a space after the AT+
Now you’re done. You just have to restart the phone and then to check your android phone’s new IMEI by pressing *#06# on your dialer.
ToolHero supports both older and newer MTK devices with stubborn processors. E.g of the supported devices are Gionee P5w, Infinix Hot 2 X510, Tecno Camon C5, Camon C8, Tecno J5, Tecno Phantom 5, Gionee Marathon M5 etc.
