What mode do you need to be in? I guess ADB debugging is also required.

Hi, I have tried this but it does not seem to be working for me:

* Extract from the archive, connect the device to the USB debugging mode (System settings/Developer options/USB debugging) and run selected .bat (depending on the backup or restore)
* To retain the image of efs.img must be in a folder with Restore_EFS.bat

I have I9300, it is rooted with USB debugging enabled
When I click on Backup_EFS,bat file I get the following message:

Backup EFS
Press any key to continue . . .
--- STARTING ----
--- WAITING FOR DEVICE
--- Backup efs image ---
'adb' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
'adb' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Press any key to continue . . .


The script closes when I press to continue - no efs.img file

Please tell me what I am doing wrong

Thanks

Thanks.

But a lot of apps which use adb to run "dd if=/of=" and pull the backup image in a folder are already release and work fine. What is new in this batch script ? Thank you anyway. It works correctly.

Nothing, except that, it's pull image to pc and back, and there is no excess, only backup and restore efs partition

4 Script is wrong, last 2 adb commands not prefixed by files\

also adb pull will fail on later adb versions since no destination specified, so you need to add . on end, e.g.

files\adb pull /sdcard/efs.img .

Maybe before when you tested abd was in your PATH and was older revision, anyway nice work, more EFS backup solutions the better.
