Yes you can but very not recommend, yes nvram contains all information about device communication files, Imei and everything else so backup it first before modified your ROM.

2 ways to solve the problem, one is factory reset and the second is re flashing the ROM. if factory reset cannot fix the problem the just re flashing the ROM will solve the problem, follow this for re flashing http://bit.ly/1WuEj7E
