Chamelephon is one of the easiest apps used for repairing, changing imei on Android phones especially the MTK types without a computer. Others include Mobile Uncle, MTK Engineering etc.

We have different ways of changing android devices imei using various types of applications and tools but one of the most efficient way is using the mobile uncle app.
Download Mobile Uncle Tools from Google play Store Here
Download The English version of Mobile Uncle Tools Here
Lets get started with the steps:
How To Change imei of Android Phones Using Mobile Uncle
 Lets see the compatible android devices that mobile uncle tools works on
  •  Mtk6589 device
  • Mtk6582 device
  •  MTK65XX devices
  • Quad Core Mediatek phones
  • Octa Core Mediatek phones
Now launch mobile uncle tool, open the app, and navigate to Engineer Mode
  •  In the next screen, click on Engineer Mode (MTK)
  •  slide the window to Connectivity just like we did before and then click on CDS Information
  •  After that,Click on Radio Information
 If you are using a dual Sim android phone, Phone 1 represents your Sim 1 and Phone 2 represents your Sim2. So choose the slot you want to swap imei with that of blackberry. Most guys choose sim1 though.
  • After choosing the desired slot, click on the (AT+) type in a word and then clear the word you typed.
  • After clearing it, a dialogue box will
  • Open click on AT+EGMR=1,7,””
  • In between (“”) type in the imei which you generated.
  • Check if the numbers are same and equal
Then, click on SEND AT COMMAND if you receive a message saying AT command sent and successful,you’re successful!
All you have to do now is to reboot your phone that all now you can rock your new imei and browse with it like a blackberry phone. but make sure you backup your previous Imei, I suggest writing it down on a Piece of Paper incase anything goes wrong so that you can quickly change it back.
And that’s it for changing your android phone’s imei
Requirement For Changing your Android Imei
  • Your Android device must be rooted.
 You can root your android device with kingroot.
  • After successful downloading mobile uncle tools.
  • Install and launch mobile uncle.
If you get pop-up requesting root permissions then,just grant the request and continue below
 First create backup of current IMEI by choosing IMEI Backup Restore (MTK) and then select Backup IMEI to desired path.
  • Tap on Engineer Mode>>Engineer Mode (MTK) and then swipe your fingers to the left to scroll to right and going to Connectivity Tab.
  • Tap on CDS Information and open Radio Information >> Phone 1 or Phone 2  (This simply means Sim 1 or Sim 2, whichever you want to change IMEI)
  •  Now you can see a AT+ written at the top, tap the end and depending on your sim,
  • add the line: EGMR=1,7,”NEW SIM 1 IMEI” or EGMR=1,10,”NEW SIM 2 IMEI” and tap on send Command.

NOTE: While changing your imei, should you get any response like; "command is not allowed in user build". After clicking on COMMAND, instead of the normal "Command is smart!" Don't panic. Just add one space between the AT+ and EGMR... That is AT+ space EGMR... Or just copy and paste this: AT+ EGMR=1,7,"IMEI Num"  Then replace IMEI Num with the imei you generated. 
     Now you’re done. You just have to restart the phone and then to check your android phone’s new

    = => Select Engineering Mode, or look for numbers and under it, check for anything that contains “engineer” User2root Receiver and another menu will pop out. If it pops-out launch type, simply select Launch0.
    = => From the menu that comes up, scroll to left side and select Set imei to bring up yet another menu where you will see and select launch to display the 2 default IMEI of your device.
    = => If you can’t find the above and you could see Telephony, just scroll down and look out for SET-IMEI.

    = => Finally tap on Set IMEI and Reboot your phone.  Your phone will reboot with your tweaked IMEI installed.
    Tell me if it works for you and maybe if you are finding it difficult implementing this trick on your device. 

    There are several methods to fix this:

    # See the video tutorial below or @ 


    + Go to Settings > About and check Baseband. If it says Unknown then flash the Stock MTK backup using Sp flash tool @ to regain Baseband
    + For Samsung phones,  use this method @

    MP0B_001 Method 

    1. Download ROM toolbox lite from Playstore 
    2. Download (to create a new IMEI file) then unzip the content of the folder (imei.exe) to a folder on your desktop 
    3. In command prompt, navigate to the imei.exe containing folder you just created on your desktop
    * NOTE cd\ then enter (returns to root directory)

    cd.. enter (goes up one directory) 
    cd foldername enter (navigates to a folder called foldername) 
    4. A faster method is to open the imei.exe containing folder > Hold down Shift > Right-click on an empty space > Select "Open Command Window here"
    5. When you're inside the imei folder in command prompt, type 
    imei.exe <15digit_IMEI_1> <15digit_IMEI_2>

    imei.exe 123456789111111 123456789111124  
    6. Press Enter          
    7. If both IMEIs you gave are of the correct format, a file named MP0B_001_NEW will be created. Rename it MP0B_001.
    8. Now you can send it to the sd of your phone 
    9. Install ROM toolbox lite then go to root explorer
    10. In root explorer, delete the existing MP0B_001 file (located @ device/data/nvram/md/NVRAM/NVD_IMEI) and replace with the one you just created 
    11. Long press the new MP0B_001, go to permissions and tick all 9 boxes at the top then select ok (don't tick special pernissions)
    12. Restart your phone
    13. Your SIMs should be detected, IMEI reflect and Baseband version change from unknown to what it should be.
    * Note that getting this done might not be this direct due to different scenarios but replacing the MP0B_001 file is the ultimate goal in order to fix the issue.

    IMEI Replacement Method 

    This method involves the use of MTK droid tools and is only applicable when your SIM cards are detected but IMEI is invalid or null. To do this:

    1. Download MTK droid tools
    2. Download PdaNet
    3. Enable USB debugging on the phone then connect it to the PC (don't enable mass storage)
    4. Install PdaNet on the PC with the phone connected; you should get a message saying drivers installed successfully.
    5. Extract then launch MTK droid tools on the PC (still with phone connected to PC)
    6. MTK droid tools should detect and display your phones details
    7. Click on IMEI/NVRAM
    8. Supply the IMEI(s) then click replace
    9. Restart your phone if it isn't automatically restarted
    10. Your IMEI issue should have been resolved
