  1. I have tried this method on my oneplus 5 and even after using the IMEI rebuild tool and using the HEX editor the changed the IMEI in the file, when I flash the file to the phone, the IMEI number remains the same as the IMEI from the phone it came from. i even tried the link you uploaded, and found the same file for the OnePlus 5 on the same website but I’m still facing the same issue. Infact the default IMEI shown in the IMEI tool and the IMEI after flashing on the phone arent even the same. The IMEI on the phone isn’t a dummy IMEI but the IMEI of the phone that the file was taken from. I also tried changing the IMEI afterwards with a different tool but no luck. Please help!!!
