    Hello,

    After installing "Smiui 5.2.7" on my Xiaomi Mi4, I've lost my IMEI and MAC Address!!
    Can someone help me restore them?

    This is an image for the issue:

    Done it a million times, still the same. Reflashed the stock img using MiFlash and didn't help as well
     
  4. wipe data,system,cache and reinstall ROM

    Not working :(
     
  6. Sorry to say but unless you backed up your EFS partition previously (which contains MAC address, IMEI etc...) then I don't think there is a way to get it back.

    sorry, but which are the EFS partitions in Xiaomi, so they depend on the device?

    Oh right,Only now noticed it I thought he meant that he reflashed the rom..
    Usually when I had that problem with my galaxy s1 I flashed the stock and it returned the imei..
    Sorry then ;<

    Yeah I guess. some guy said he can fix it for $40, but I have some issues with the stupid screen, if I couldn't fix the screen I'll just buy a OnePlus One.

    Not working dude.

    Not a problem. I'll just get a OnePlus One now
     
  15. still i don't think he corrupted the modem partitions , to do that you'll have to play with repartitioning in a great way , try to flash modem

    A guy from India called "unknown person" fixed it to me for $40. It didn't even take him 3 min but he fixed it using teamviewer and I really don't know the way :(

    I've got the same problem. long stort short, I've lost the efs partitions without a backup. I believe I could fix it if someone was to send me theirs after changing the imei (i can help with that) so i can restore it.

    If not could you get me in contact with that guy, andy.afef
