Hellow friends.. If you have ever found yourself got stuck on how you can get rid off the boring INVALID IMEI on tecno boom j8 then today is your luckiest day since i have spent my time to share a free solution to you all my gsm friends
I once got frustrated after trying to fix the problem using almost four famous flash boxes through meta mode and also flash mode without any positive result whereby most tools reported imei repair done but nothing changed.
Take a look at the images below since i dont want much blaaah blaaahhh
WHAT TO DO NOW?
- Go to settings on your tecno boom J8 and enable usb debug and also enable oem unlocking since we are going to unlock bootloader
- Download TWRP image for tecno boom j8 from This Link
- Download SUPERSU from This Link
- Boot your tecno j8 to fastboot and make sure fastboot drivers are installed on your pc
- Use any android fastboot tool and do the following steps
- After running the tool go to command prompts and type “fastboot devices” and your fastboot device will be listed like “23HG809U FASTBOOT”. this is just to ensure your device is found so dont panic
- After making sure that your devices is found now we are going to unlock bootloader but you have to note that after unlocking bootloader all the userdata on phone will be erased so yo better take a backup of all your personal important data. If you are ready to proceed then type the following command “fastboot oem unlock” and after that you have to respond to your phone since it will ask you wether you want to unlock bootloader whereby you will loose your warrant and if you ready to proceed just press volume up button and wait for phone to restart and start erasing all your data and to complete boot up
- Again boot your j8 to fastboot, after extracting the TWRP you will find inside the folder file named RECOVERY so copy it and paste inside the folder of your fastboot tool and again run command prompts and this time type the following commands “fastboot flash image recovery.img” and hit enter. Now wait few seconds for the flashing process to complete then type “fastboot reboot” and your phone shall reboot to normal
- Now copy the SUPERSU you downloaded and paste it to your phone internal storage or sd card and insert it on your phone and power off the set
- Boot your phone to recovery by pressing volume up and power button together and when you see logo on screen release power button and keep holding volume up button and you will be taken to recovery as how the image shows down
- Click on install and scroll where you put SUPERSU and click it
- Installation will take short time and after successful installation you will be prompted and now click on reboot then click system
- Now you have successful gain root access to your tecno boom j8 and the next step is to fix invalid imei. If you were just looking for rooting solution then yuo ready to go
- After gaining root now we are going to repair imei through ADB connection but not all tools have ADB method of imei repair and even those which support others failed, you will decide which tool to use
- Connect your phone while powered on and make sure usb debug is on and mtp is selected as connection method
- Fill your original imei which can be found at the back of your phone and write them on imei tabs of your tool and click on start or repair button
I used bst dongle just to show you guys but there many tools which support adb method of imei repair and tools like INFERNO, NCK, AVENGER, CHIMERA and others more. Listing those tools does not mean that they are better than others and we are not here to promote any tool.
