This article is mainly composed to show you steps by steps approaches to change your infinix hot 2 and other Mtk device Imei number without having to root your android device.  It’s obvious most of us already know about tweaking your android device and changing its imei to that of a blackberry or other imei number that has free data.

I practically did a test run of different types of applications that helps changes android imei but they all requires root access, which means the android device must be first rooted before the application can help change its imei number. I realized I needed to change my android imei but I don’t want to root the android device because once an android device is rooted it can’t download and receive the latest software updates of the android operating system.

All I wanted was just to change the android imei number to that of a blackberry and still enjoy the features of downloading latest software updates on the device. Below are proven steps which I used to change my Infinix Hot 2 Imei to a blackberry imei without rooting my device.

Lets go started:


  • Blackberry IMEI Generator: You can download it from Playstore:  Download Here
  • Dial *#*#3646633#*#* to enter Engineering Mode on your android device
  • If the above code didn’t work for you, Download the MTK Engineering Mode App from Play store: – Download Here

Firstly, Launched the Bb imei generator, click generate BB IMEI, and copy the generated IMEI inside a book so you wont forget.


Now go to your call screen and input this:

  • Dial  *#*#3646633#*#*  to enter Engineering Mode on your android device

After successful enabling the engineering mode on the android device, See snapshots below:


Click on the Connectivity menu, and click on CDS Information


  • Under CDS, Click on the Radio Information


  • To change the IMEI for SIM 1, choose Phone 1. And for SIM 2, Choose Phone 2.


  • After selecting phone 1, You see the default imei of the phone 1 sim slot:


  • Now we changing the IMEI of SIM 1, just enter AT +EGMR=1,7,”NEW IMEI” For example AT +EGMR=1,7,”523470787017340″
  • Now you input the bb imei you generated using the bb imei generator app.


You get this notification ‘AT Command sent‘  when its successful.


  • Now reboot device and check your imei number by dialing *#06#. To see if really your phone 1 Imei number has changed.


Now, i have successfully change my android device imei to that of a blackberry without rooting my device. which means i can get latest software updates and download.  I now use Glo 1k bis for 3Gb on my infinix hot 2.

Kindly place a comment if you have any issue. Thanks

  1. I already root my phone and the imei isn’t wrote ‘command msent ‘.and the imei remains d same.what can I do?

    • So sorry about that. Your device might not support the codes. Try downloading mkt engineering mode app and use it to change your imei. You dont need to root your device . The mkt engineering mode app helps change the imei without rooting.

  2. woaw, it worked perfectly for my infinix hot 2.. thank you for the simplified tutorial, pls I have a question, is it safe to install updates considering the fact that I’ve changed imei? won’t I get bricked? a reply asap will be appreciated.

    • Glad it worked perfectly for you sir. You can still install and update your software, it wont brick the device, Dont be scared. You didnt root or change any system files, so you dnt need to be afraid.

  3. Pls, I need a clarification as regards an issue,I have a blackberry torch that doesn’t support HSPA where there is low network reception and I tweak my infinix imei to that of my blackberry,it worked perfectly fine but I’m having an issue,the network is not that good ever since I changed it,could it be because of the type of blackberry I used.

    • You can still receive latest software update but the update might not be installed successfully because your device is rooted. you need to unroot your device or reload your OS.

      • Is there a way I can send you the screen grab of my phone showing that exact place. Maybe when you see it, you’ll understand fully what I am talking about.

          • Thanks so much. I have confirmed it’s due to the bug in the Marshmallow update. There is still no way to fix the imei yet, I’m trying to find a way to downgrade my ROM to lollipop( I havent found any way yet). The bugs in this marshmallow is killing me.

  15. pls I have been using this app b4, b4 I formated my phone, now I have reinstall the app but not working, after putting the bb imei and then sent, it will tell me that, (this command is not allowed in userbuild), pls what’s the matter, bcos I have subscribed already pls help

  16. I bought infinix hot 2 from Jumia and they said I can subscribe #500 to get 1gb my changing my imei and I don’t know how to do it please help!

    • The 500N for 1gb with mtn is the promo package that came with buying the device. Changing your imei is totally another thing to use glo bis of N1400 for 3gb. Read the article for how to..

  17. One of the best blogs..kudos Mr Various.
    The problem I have is some people who haven’t used their glo lines on a blackberry always have problem of subscribing for the bb plan, the money is deducted first and then returned after 24 hrs that is the sub is rejected by glo…what’s your opinion on this? Thanks.

    • Thanks for the compliment. Appreciate sir. Once you have changed your android imei to bb you dont have any problem. The glo plan works. If your money was returned, its obvious your imei is not a bb imei…Check if you actually changed the imei to bb.

  18. Larious!!!! You are too much joor. I have change my imei will I know if Am using d 3gb ? And what code will I use to check d remaining data

  19. Comment: The IMEI one changes to, does glo recognize it & tell the type of blackberry it is?
    Also, does this work for other sim cards?
    Thank u so much for ur tutorial & quick responses, kudos!!!

    • Once you have changed the imei to blackberry, glo sees your android device as a blackberry device. You can also change your imei to bb10 imei to use airtel bis on it. Your welcome.

  20. I cnt change my imei on infinixx510,d the Atl is nt showing after clicking phone1 or 2 on the mtk,pls help,dis my number07065696621
