Can lg backup tool be used to create a complete backup that can be used to restore later like a nandroid backup?

Since flashing v10f,this backup is looping, any ideas?

backup alternative
So as a newbie what's the next best thing to a Nandroid backup on the LG-D850 if the bootloader is locked and can't use CWM or TWRP? I made a Titanium Backup and I've read that's not enough.

I think you should backup your modem/radio and also have full TB backup. If your phone screws, you have to reflash and restore all apps and config. Make sure your launcher backup is copied to ext sd card. Very painful until boot loader is unlocked.

Found this somewhere on cad on how to backup efs.Copy to the cloud for safe keeping

Backup EFS

adb shell

su

dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst1 of=/storage/external_SD/modemst1.img

dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst2 of=/storage/external_SD/modemst2.img



Restore EFS
adb shell

su

dd if=/storage/external_SD/modemst1.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst1

dd if=/storage/external_SD/modemst2.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modemst2[

Thanks that's actually exactly what I did. As of now I have a TB, EFS and my action launcher backup on my PC. I really want to mess around with G3 Tweakbox but I don't want to install the Xposed framework until there's an exploit found to make a Nandroid backup.

I found this topic trying to find some guide for backing up EFS files.
Unlike you I haven't manage to backup in any way the two img files but I have followed the path below (from root with root explorer):
/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name where you can find modemst1 & modemst2
After that I couldn't in any way manually copy them or upload them.

Still trying to find a way to backup EFS with the given code in the respected threads. In particular I miss the steps before entering the code...
