Hello,

I have been experiencing problems with the z3x box on s3 models. Basically it gets no service after unlock. I have fixed that problem by downloading the nv items. WHile reading a firum i came across the qpst nv back up. I started doing that and it works wonderful. Seems all my problems are fixed. I am confused about one thing

iMy Question is

Is backing up the nv items through qpst and also doind a efs back up the samething? Or should i be backing up both? I hope that this is an easy question thanks a million for whoever answers.

Scott

I'd go with both as all the nv stuff isn't on the efs partition on the i747. I think that's what doc said anyway... Either way you can never have too many backups :thumbup:

Doesn't hurt to backup anything. But neither are the best way anymore.

Open terminal emulator and enter this:

su
reboot nvbackup

Thats it! Creates an on-device permanent backup of your NV Data. If corruption is ever detected, it will auto restore during boot. So it prevents IMEI loss and other potential problems.

Are you running a stock build? I doubt this would work on cm/aosp and some custom roms.
