  2. 2. Samsung Captivate Glide imei repair This guide contains all the steps that need to be followed exactly to complete imei repair. The estimated completetion time is +/-10 minutes for most users. Experienced users could do it in less then 3 minutes and first time users might need to read the manual twice to make sure they followed all steps. Important: IMEI Repair & SNR Repair are advanced functions and are only meant for people who know what they are doing. We assume NO responsibility what happens with your phone in case of wrong usage, and no refunds will be given in case of wrong usage! Important 2: This function is for imei REPAIR only (in case of IMEI 0049xxxxx). Changing IMEI on your phone is ILLEGAL which we do NOT allow. Your payment details, IP and all phone details are logged and we will work with authorities and provide all these details when necessary! When buying our software you agree with the Terms Of Service where is also mentioned that IMEI Change is illegal and is prohibited always. Important 3: We strongly recommend to change your firmware to Android version 4.0.4 or lower. The 4.1.2 version has a known issue with the Modem port which often results in an error stating that the modem can't be found even if you manually set the modem port according to the number in your Device Manager. If you damaged the IMEI (and / or SNR) on your Samsung GSM (resetting it to default e.g. 004999010640000) by bad (reset) codes, cracked unlock software or by wrongful flashing (firmware update), these advanced SRS functions will help you revive your Samsung back from the dead. Some important things to remember (use this as a check list!): - If your problem just suddenly happened without you messing with the phone (flashing / unlocking) most likely your problem is Hardware. This can NOT be fixed by software. Do not use our software - When you damaged the phone's IMEI it is possible you damaged more then that. If you have 'Baseband Unknown' problem or IMEI all zeros (000000000000000) or blank you need to fix this first using Free Samsung BaseBand repair. - IMEI repair costs 6 credits and is NOT available with the normal '1 x Samsung unlock' account you need to purchase the 1 x Samsung Repair by cable account. - SNR repair is FREE when you have a valid SRS account, thus if you want to repair SNR + repair IMEI you need to repair SNR first and only then repair IMEI. 1. If you do not have a valid SRS username and password yet: Buy a '1 x Samsung Repair by cable' account 2. Download & run our SRS installer - Make sure you also select the Samsung drivers for download and installation 3. If present uninstall 'Samsung PC studio software / Samsung KIES software' from your computer 4. Restart computer (important for Android phones) 5. Strongly recommended: flash the phone with a stock non-branded full firmware 6. Strongly recommended: Repair Baseband using method 4 (Free Samsung BaseBand repair) Even if EFS seems to be ok it can be still have bad data which makes the IMEI repair fail Page 2/6 Copyright 2006 - 2013

Write both down and double check!! It is SUPER important you get these right. 8. Turn back on your phone (without SIM) 9.
