[Q] Manually backing up /efs
Hello all, thanks for your time.
I have a quick question that I couldn't find an answer to on these forums or anywhere online. The problem I'm having is making a backup of my /efs file. I attempted to post this in the Q&A sticky post but it wouldn't let me, due to not having enough posts. Anyways, on to the question/problem:
I want to backup my /efs file, but I can't seem to find a way. All the apps I have tried don't recognize my device ( Galaxy Note II SGH i317 ) and EFS Pro either finds an error in mismatching md5s or has an error "accessing archives." I should have backed this up before I rooted and flashed CleanROM 5.0, but as they say, hindsight is 20/20. Anyways, my question is how do I manually copy the file? Most posts I have read hint at this being an option, but a noob like me doesn't even know how to get to the file in the directory. Any help would be greatly appreciated, especially a guide through the directory to the file.
Semi-related question: does a CWM recovery file backup the /efs? I've read conflicting information on this. Thanks again!
