    Ever made nandroid backup? If made, then EFS can be extracted from it.

    However, if no backup of EFS was made, then you can't recover, it's gone.

    there is a warez tool, i used it to recover my friends, i could fix the IMEI and also edit the serial number even change the wifi mac address. but its a warez and i don't think its allowed here or even anywhere.
    i still haven't figured out why changing IMEI is a crime, because the quartz present in the chipset creates unique frequency when connecting to BTS. May be its yet another "What you do is illegal because it will pull our sales down, so your method even though it works and harmless is still illegal, because we wont make profit if its used. period and now shut up and stop hagging like an idiot, we mean monnehhhhhhhhhh... get it."
    and honestly IMEI really makes no sense, if you can set up your own bts using openbts and a good hardware like umtrx you can fake/clone any phone on this planet, yes even LTE, you need 2 umtrx to clone a 4g phone on the fly, because the principles of optics and photonics can never change no matter what lame excuse you give.
    gah still, i am happy i recovered my friend's phone and he considers me as robinhood, the prince of thieves, one who robs the riches and gives it to needy and poors.
