In humans, we’ve got people that are extremely stubborn and uneasy to breakdown or understand. This case is relatedly the same with what we’ve been facing on phones running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
All we want is for google to provide regular updates and upgrade for our Android phones, we do not consider the effect it will or could have. A lot of us have been so quick to upgrade their device go Marshmallow but that isn’t the case for me. People’s queries on not been able to change IMEI to enjoy certain benefits made upgrading my phone fell through, I instantly changed my mind about it.
To cut the whole story short, there is now a way to change MTK Android 6.0 Marshmallow IMEI via Chamelephon app. This app is uniquely different from the popular MTK Engineering Mode, MTK Engineering Mode will change IMEI of all MTK phones running on Lollipop 5.1 & below except Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
