    You don't need to root your phone to change the imei if it's an MTM chips

  2. That's the problem when an Android device run on MTK chip, you always encounter that 'Invalid IMEI' thing.

    Good mornng, pls I need to change the IMEI of my android phone, tecno 8h. All these methods r not working

    • I have used this for tecno h8 and it works, alternative is download mtk engineering app from playstore, launch and enter into mtk settings and continue from step 3.

  4. I tried everything you suggested about changing the IMEI number and it worked on My Tecno 8H. What i want to ask is this, is it possible to upgrade Tecno 8H 5.0 to 5.1 OS.

    • Hi Mcqueen, Tecno have not released any update for Tecno H8 yet and they haven't announce anything related to upgrading h8 OS. So it is not possible to upgrade your Tecno H8 to Android 5.1 OS.
