    I think the downloaded file maybe corrupted. Could you confirm by checking the md5 hash?

    checked and verified size and checksum. both are correct.There may have been some issue in transferring the build 8 zip file to phone.

    So I tried to download and flash with
    This worked !! I think you were correct. Thanks for your help.

    What would be the next step to fix the IMEI code? Please advise.

    Ok guys as nothing worked, I took it to repair shop and it does have an IMEI number.

    Now 3 issues

    1. the sim connection doesn't lasts for more than 5 min. when someone tries to call after 5min- msg is phone switch-off/not reachable. Same issue with 4 SIMs
    2. automatic SIM registration doesn't works.
    3. power off is not working- when powered-off-> starts back again immediately-on its own.

    Any help further... ::)

    It seems its more of some hardware issue and not anything related to software.

    Just Another thought thanks to Ashwin, is the device unlocked or locked?

    I think it is a baseband issue or because the phone may not be unlocked.

    Try unlocking it using this method <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... ?t=2029650</a><!-- m -->

    2 questions on above:

    1. how to check for unlock status, before unlocking it
    2. for the unlock method in the above link, it talks abt some custom ROM, etc. So do I need to put some ROM before using the method, or could use the same with the current software.

    Try this *#7465625# View Phone Lock Status

    I found it at <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""> ... ?t=1492700</a><!-- m -->

    Well, try the above code on stock rom first. We can try a custom rom later
