I took an image with TWRP on a Lenovo S860 and I flashed it on another Lenovo S860 (both ROW 2GB RAM).

All went fine but the only problem is that the IMEI/NVRAM/MAC address/serial number are the same on both devices 🙁

I know how to backup and restore IMEI/NVRAM etc. using MTKdroidTools but is there a way in TWRP that this can be avoided?

Thanks

The twrp image is just recovery.img only and i think if you flash just the recovery.img it will not happen. NVRAM and IMEI is in different file with recovery so i think it impossible if you just flash recovery.img only the IMEI will be same

The phone cannot be switch on, you only flash the recovery so ot impossible except you flash the whole rom with wrong firmware. Maybe you battery is 0% so try recharge the battery for an hour and then try switch on again
