Requirements
1. A Rooted Android MTK smartphone, if your phone is not rooted you can learn How To Root Your Android Phone
2. A valid new IMEI number or learn How To Generate Imei
3. The Mobile Uncle Tools Application.

After getting all those ready


Follow The Procedures below:
1. Dial *#06#, write down your phone default IMEI, or Simply Back it up on your SD-card. See this Post on How to Backup IMEI on Android.
2. Install and run the mobile uncle tools App
3. Tap on Engineering Mode and select Engineer Mode (MTK) 
4. Swipe to Connectivity and tap on CDS Information
5. Click on Radio Information and You'll see something like: Phone 1 which means Sim 1 and also Phone 2 which also means Sim 2.
6. Just select any of the sim you wish to change its imei.
7. When you select any of Phone1 or Phone2 a new window will be opened where you'll find AT+ __________ Inside there input your new IMEI number and click on SEND AT COMMAND
That's all!

Though Some devices are different and may want to prove stubborn, so here's an extra tip just in case the steps above didn't work for you.
So instead of the AT+ __________ above just erase it and type the below in the text space

AT+EGMR=1,7,“IMEI_NUMBER(for Phone 1)

TO CHANGE IMEI FOR SIM 2: If your phone is dual-sim, type this command: 

AT+EGMR=1,10, “IMEI_NUMBER

NOTE: you have to change the IMEI_NUMBER in the code above to the new imei you just got and please do not delete the quote around the imei.

After everything is done, Then Press SEND AT COMMAND

After sending the command reboot your phone and dial *#06#, you should see your phone imei changed.


UPDATE FOR THOSE USING ANDROID 4+
If you get errors saying "Sending AT command Failed" or "module not supported for device errors" all you need to do is, when you are typing AT+EGMR Make sure you leave a space between ‘AT and the plus sign For example: ‘AT {space} +EGMR="2345XXXXX" Now Click SEND AT command, You should get response "AT command is mSent" Now restart your device and dial *#06# to view your changes.

That's all.
