You say allot of other people have the same problem does it all change to the same imei number or is it all to different numbers?

If you flashed a ROM hopefully you made a nandroid backup if so just restore it if not then try and go to a new ROM like a stock rooted one or cyanogen or something like that and see if it's back to the old number.

Maybe give passimg a try but I doubt that will help because it shouldn't over right the imei info. Thing is is that this is a ported ROM so I figure when eViL made it he accidentally left in some extra info from the phone he ported it from. And you all ended up with it :/ I think the only way to get this fixed would be to get a ROM dev to make an app that can over right the imei info on your phone with what ever number you would want (your original number) but I don't think anyone would do that cause or else you could use it for not so good purposes, sorry.

Passimg should work.
A lot of people tried a fix for the nook to allow it pretend to be a phone, which ended up with a lot of people spoofing the same IMEI - you can manually edit the number, because it is reported by the OS. I would just passimg...

Sometimes flashing unofficial firmwares does this, that's why it is often suggeted to.do.a.backup of your /efs folder before you flash any firmwares. I'm not entirely sure about how to rectify this but you might want to check these thread.
