  1. I use MTN sm@rt S720i,its rooted by all effort to get an imei for it is fruitless.Although I doubt d 2nd sim slot to be 3g but it will still be a relieve if I can still taste glo BIS on my android.If there is possibility of changing d 2nd sim slot to 3g,I wouldn't mind that and also if d 1st sim slot can also be changed to use any sim-it will be a welcome idea.Thanks.

    • The second sim slot comes by default with EDGE network and cannot be changed to 3G. There is a possiblity of changing the second sim imei to use Glo BIS using two methods.
      First, You can use octupus box to tweak your imei but it is not easily gotten except if you go to computer village, those guys that repears phone, just tell them that you want to change your imei and it will be done for you charging you 1k. Or better still, you can contact Excel on this.

      Secondly, You can change your S720i imei with MTKDroid tool.
      Follow the steps here

      Please if you encounter any problem in the cause of changing your imei, kindly let me know so that help can be proffered.

    • Don't mind them, tweak your imei again, they are trying to block it but they can't because they've already sign a deal with those smartphone dealers. Just generate your imei again and keep on flexing.

      Blackberry imei has been sent to your mail.

    • Hello Lawal, the only solution to your own device is an Octupus box. To easily get this done, go to any computer village and request to fix your IMEI. Please before you do this, back up your device. Its very important you back up.

    • Hello Scot,
      I want to believe your samsung galaxy s4 is not an mtk clone device therefore falls within the range of Qualcomm. Mobile Uncle, Engineering mode, Mtk droid tool or EMulator won't work for your device. Though I don't know where you are residing but you can easily change your imei with ease. Just walk in to any computer village around you, where they fix Samsung devices. Tell them you want to change your imei, they will charge you 1k for the services.

      The reason why this octupus box is somehow scarse is because its not too common except with those who repairs and fix imei. The normal price for the octupus box ranges between #100,000 to #120,000; so getting it for personal use seems useless to me except you want to use it for business.

  14. Yomi I changed my imei to BB and I cannot connect to the Internet or download, I bought a monthly Bis I am on mtn network I tried all apns followed your instructions but still I don't get it right.

    • Since you've succeeded in changing your imei, at the moment, It is only Glo Bis that works on Android. Mtn doesn't and Etisalat doesn't. If actually you want to use MTN on it, You can use a tunneling vpn like Troid vpn but the only problem with it is that it is very slow.
      And if you decided to use Glo bis on it, just change your apn to blackberry.net
      no password and username. save and hit theconnect button.

  15. yomi I dey for serious wahala now. I am using galaxy S GT 19000. I tempered mi rom using Odin. I wanted to change the version so dat I can upgrade. I tried it and it failed.

    • That is why I always emphasis that before you do anything at all on your Android device, always back it up first with CWM. What happened to you is just that the update didn't complete. It is always important you have a back up of your android device.

      Anyway, download and follow the guide on how to run it on your bricked Samsung GT. It is very detailed and therefore, you'll need to follow every bit of intruction carefully.

    • I'm glad you've successfully change your sim 2 imei… To change your sim1 IMEI, you'll need to have access to octupus box. Or if you are in anyway closer to any computer village, they can easily do this for you.

    • Since you are rooted, kindly use the mobile uncle method to change your imei. But before you do that, make sure you back up your original imei with thesame mobile uncle and save it on your SD card. Go to playstore and download Mobile Uncle tool.

      Don't hesitate to ask questions if you are confuse.

  21. I have being using glo bis for a while now but for the 5days I am unable to browse. It take a long time to connect and if it does, it won't browse. What should I do?

    • Check your connection protocol. Also make sure you are on 3G services or otherwise set it to 3g. Check your balance to know how many data you have left. Any other issue will be traceble to your network error in your location.

    • They have not block it but they are trying to block it. They already know that guys are not smiling and so therefore, they don't want to alter the deal they signed with Konga/infinix. But since Jumia is now selling Infinix Zero, and according to them you get free mtn data every month which in turns mean that you can also get free data from mtn using this trick.

  23. Prof Yomi, it's Sire Sommy, they are trying to block it, i think! Cox for the past 6 or 5daus,it takes a very long time to connect! Both for me and other pals living all over the country!

  27. pls prof i want to ask chimera tool works for Nokia lumia, Samsung and BlackBerry phones as listed on their site, I want to ask if it would work for other devices that are not listed on their site like Sony Xperia and Nokia X

    • I can't really say if it will work for Nokia X because as of the time that site was updated, Nokia X wasn't out but any device not listed on their site won't work with Chimera tool. They are the creator of the tool and therefore knows better than we the typical user of the tool.

  28. pls prof i want to ask chimera tool works for Nokia lumia, Samsung and BlackBerry phones as listed on their site, I want to ask if it would work for other devices that are not listed on their site like Sony Xperia and Nokia X

  30. Hello Prof. Please i need your help. I rooted my HTC ONE V and since then my Bluetooth, pictures, and video stopped working and the phone started working slowly.

    Also, i tired to root my infinix zero following the procedure you gave but i always got phone drivers failed to install.
    Please help.

    • First of all I don't know the app you used in rooting it but do the below since you are also experiencing slow motion work on ur device

      Go to setting>>>Apps>>>then clear your apps cache one after the other. (Mind you, after this process some of your apps will return back to default and some even prompt you to log in again like ur facebook, gplaystore etc.)

      Once you've cleared all your apps once and for all, restart your device and allow it to start normally. Your booting and bluetooth should start working.

      1. Slide the Notification panel open,and then tap settings.
      2. If it is off Tap ON/OFF Switch to turn On Bluetooth.
      3. Tap the name of your devices near the top of the screen to make it Visible to other devices and to discover other devices in your phone.
      4. Now start sending some files to any phone. It will ask you to pair if you sending to any new phone. Pair it by using same code generate in your phone and same in other phone.
      5. When you receiving files Tap incoming notification and then Tap accept.
      6. After Successful transfer or received any file you get notifications.

      Secondly, since you've succeeded in rooting your Infinix zero, Use MTKDroid method of changing ur imei. Or did you try the Mobile uncle method? what message did you get if you do?
