  1. It is not working on Yalu Jailbroken iPhone 5S on IOS 10.2

    Just to make it clear, I own both phones with respected IMEI numbers and I want to change my current working jailbroken iPhone 5S IMEI number to my other phone’s IMEI number which has not been registered and activated yet.
    The above method is NOT working at all.
    What do you suggest?

  2. Hi !

    Does it really change the internal imei or it just change the imei on screen ?
    Because if the operator see 2 similar imei, it can disable the phone I think…

    And how to uninstall it ? Just replace with you original Imei ?
