    Guide for flash a stock FW by SP Flash tools to recover lost IMEI or baseband

    With this procedure you will lost all your data and settings, backup them first and unplug your SD card..!

    Download required files here:

    - Xiaomi Hongmi WCDMA (5.0)

    - Xiaomi Hongmi TD (5.0)

    - Unzip downloaded file
    - Install MTK Driver

    [​IMG]

    - Run SP Flash Tool (Flash_tool.exe)
    - Select button Scatter-loading
    - In unzipped folder "HM2013023_images_JHBCNAH1.0_4.2" select "MT6589_Android_scatter_emmc.txt" it will load all required files to the tool

    - Turn off your phone and remove battery
    - Press button firmware -> upgrade
    - Plug in your phone to the PC (with removed battery) process will start automaticaly and after 3seconds, input your battery to the phone (do not remove USB cable)

    Didn't understand what is this for.
    Is to backup the IMEI???
    Or I understand correctly that if we flash an official firmware the IMEI is restire if we have lost it...

    I was only able to get to that point by disabling the driver signature otherwise not even allow the installation.
    After disabling, I manage to install legacy hardware driver. I have installed all 4 options of the .inf driver file and always get that result.

    Recently I bought a Xiami Hongmi TD-SCDMA.

    I wonder if I can flash the WCDMA version from SP Flash Tool to see if it working or not? Any one tried this method?

    Thanks in advanced.
