It's bothering me a lot seeing other Smartphone users complaining that they are unable to tweak their device IMEI due to the fact that their device failed to work with series given methods of Changing IMEI. Today, we are going to discuss how to Root and change IMEI of Huawei Android devices.
This tutorial will guide the Huawei Smartphone users to Root and change the IMEI of their Smartphone easily in order to flex with Glo Bis, Etisalat Chat/Smartpak of N50, MTN bblited of N70 etc. Also the rooting will make you enjoy your phone to the fullest.

The method has tested and confirmed working fine with Huawei Y600-U20,  Huawei Y5, Y3, Huawei G750 (honor 3x and 3C), Huawei MediaPad T1.7.0 (Tablet).

Note that the method also works for other stubborn MTK devices that are difficult to change it's IMEI through MTK Engineering Mode.

Materials Needed For Rooting
  • KingRoot 4.1.0.249.apk [Download it here]
  • Strong Internet connection [Town ON your Data Connection is highly recommended]
To Root Your Huawei Android Smartphone

1. Install and run KingRoot. Wait till it detect the phone
2. It will verify your root status >> Click on START ROOT

3. The rooting process should begin and you will see something like the image below

4. During the process, your device may restart, don’t let your mind's sake, your device is safe. As soon as your Huawei reboots, the rooting process will continue automatically.
5. You may get a prompt to install an app. Ignore the warning, mark the check-box and tap “Install anyway”

6. After a minute or soon, the rooting process should be completed!

It is simple as that. You may download Root Checker from Play Store to verify your root privileges. After downloading, simply Install Root Checker, run it and you should get a success message after then.

To Change Your Huawei Smartphone IMEI

In this method, we are going to use an application called Chamelephon. It's simple and short for those who are new to this. Simply follow the steps carefully. No need of CDS information or engineering mode at all.

1. Download Chamelephon.apk here
2. Open Chamelephon and grant it superuser access permission

3. The first box is for the IMEI of the sim 1, if you are using a dual sim phone. And the second box for Sim 2.

4. Input the IMEI number you wish to change to in any of the boxes. Simply leave any of the boxes you did not wish to change as the way you met it. 
5. Then click Apply New IMEIs.
6. A popup box will ask “Do you confirm changing the IMEIs?” Click on Change button.

7. Close everything and restart your phone or put it in Airplane mode for 5 seconds before you back it to normal mode, then dial *#06# to view your new IMEIs.


Note that Changing of IMEI is illegal in some countries, and Shelaf will not be held responsible for any consequences that befall the changer.
Also, backup your original imei incase anything goes wrong, then revert using the above procedures for changing.


Good Luck and don't forget to drop your testimony, when succeeded in changing your Smartphone IMEI. You can as well drop your comment for any help.

  11. Hello Mr Shelaf. i had lost hope of rooting my Huawei Y336-U02 but with this post I was able to root it. Thank you so much. I am a big fan of this site just that the browser I usually use on my phone doesn't support commenting here. i've benefitted alot from here. I however tried changing imei of the fon with the app you suggested here but I'm told
    "Your processor type is not MediaTek! The application works only with MediaTek processors" and the IMEI doesn't change. please any help will be appreciated. Thanks again.
