How to Change IMEI Number of Your Android Easily (Rooting Required)

Your device may have been repaired and now you are getting problems related to network. It may be because of not having a valid IMEI number. Changing IMEI number is illegal but it may help you to get your phone back. If you own a rooted Android device then we will provide you an easy trick to change your IMEI number. This will not require you to download and install anything or to connect your device with the computer with USB debugging mode enabled, it is a very simple trick that you can perform in seconds but the only requirement of this trick is that you require a rooted Android device.

Steps to Change IMEI Number of Your Android –

  • Write the following in your dialler – *#7465625# or *#*#3646633#*#*
  • Click to Call pad or connectivity options.
  • Find out CDS information and tap on it.
  • Check out for Radio information.
  • If you have dual SIM, there will be two options for you, select the one which you want to go with.
  • Now to change IMEI number follow –

AT +EGMR=1,7,”IMEI_1” and “AT +EGMR=1,10,”IMEI_2” (replace IMEI_1 and IMEI_2 with your IMEI no)

For example : AT =EGMR=1,7”9100XXXXXXXXXXXX

  • And click to send.


So this is the easiest way to change IMEI number of your Android, there are many other methods too but they will require you to download the software and install it and then you have to use that software to perform your work. The only thing that this method requires is a rooted device. The choice is yours. Also let me tell you again that changing IMEI is illegal so don’t misuse the information provided here. Also it doesn’t changes your device ID so don’t try to play smart.

    I could not see in nowhere when was the article released, I tried to use both codes (*#7465625# or *#*#3646633#*#*) in my Galaxy GT-S5360L and nothing code showed the correct menu.

    The firs code just showed the active features in the phone, but i do not choose nothing.

    Can you share me some update page about how to change the IMEI number of my phone.

    Sorry by my English.

    CLEAR SOLUTION, if that code can’t work on your device, and your device is MTXX just download Mobileuncle and Click Engineer mode.
    In short you should get into engineer mode so just google how to get there with your device.
    Assuming you are there, go to connectivity tab, then click CDS information
    -> Then Radio information,
    ->Phone1 if its a dual sim, then write the AT command as given avove in this article.

    1. You Must get into engineer mode for this steps to work.

    Pay attention! He is telling you to go into engineering mode and gave you two common secret codes. If they don’t work on your phone, then YOU need to find out what code will get you engineering mode.
