Hi Andy,
The above error msg may cause by Android_Gadget_CDC_driver, after I tried to connect it alerted for CDC driver so I installed it and work now.

I want to know whether it works for Asus Zenfones or not since I browsed via ROOT explore I cannot find MDDB in phone system as I did on Lenovo.

Could you please advise for any other brand such as Sony Ericsson, Samsung, ASUS Zenfones, etc. Does it work for these models?

Thanks for your sharing!

Hi,
What device, i hope not lenovo s850. If lenovo s850 you have to use your own nvram backup. If else just restore imei and try to re flash again.and you will get your signal

Once lost imei on lenovo S850 it hard to get the signal back, unless you have nvram backup if not just bring to lenovo center. Until now Lenovo S850 is the harddest to getting back the signal
