How To Restore Missing Or Corrupted {null/null} IMEI In Samsung Galaxy S4 Without Boxes

Warning: This tutorial is directly for only Samsung Galaxy S4 and should not be tried in other Samsung Models or other phone products! You should by no means try it on a phone that already have an IMEI number. Before you carry out the below steps make sure you confirm that your phone base-band/IMEI have been corrupted, dial *#06# to see whether it shows you null/null. Also go over to settings >> about phone >> base-band to confirm whether it shows you unknown. The owner of this site or its admin should not by any means be held responsible if anything goes wrong.

Materials Needed
1) A Computer with windows 7 or 8
2) A good USB cable
3) Samsung Galaxy S4 USB Driver - Download it here
4) Odin Software - Download it here
5) The Samsung Modem file - Download it here

Alright, with those things ready, let's get to work. (Sorry, I couldn't provide images for this).
I presume that your phone is already rooted for you to be reading this tutorial.
1) Download and install the Samsung Driver.
2) Download the Odin and unzip it to your desktop. You will see the folder "Odin".
3) Also download and unzip the Samsung Modem file to your desktop for easy access.
4) Now completely power off your Samsung phone.
5) With your hands, press the volume down, home and power buttons all at the same time till you boot into the phone download mode. (While in Odin download mode, you will see the word "Downloading".

6) Now come back to your computer and open Odin as administrator by right clicking on Odin located inside the folder you earlier extracted.
7) Connect your phone to the computer using the USB Cable.
8) Odin should detect it by now. When detected, you will see the word "Added!" under the message field.

9) Now on Odin click on phone and choose the Samsung modem file located on your computer desktop.
10) Click on start.
11) When Odin shows you a green pass, that means success. Your phone should automatically restart by now. Congratulations! You just restored your phone IMEI. To confirm, simply dial *#06#.
