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...

Win8 issue.. disable driver signature..
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.
