Thanks for the help. Sadly restoring your efs does not fix Houston's jb port call problem:/

@javskies My post wasn't aimed at you. I was answering Lrod's question. Think I was half asleep when I did it tho.

Updated Optimus_G_Create_Flashable_EFS.zip to be "safer" and more universal among Optimus G devices.

Updated LS970_ZERO_EFS to include the "backup efs to flashable zip" feature to run before writing the ZERO EFS.

*UPDATE*
yet another edit..

I've decided to include m9kefs3 in the backup process. Even tho m9kefs3 seems to have all 00's and not be used... better safe than sorry.

Both the EFS backup and ZERO EFS zips have been updated in the OP to reflect this change.

Auto, would you be able to make a backup zip to make a backup of ALL partitions?

That's on my to-do list. Planned on looking into that as well as the AT&T EFS later tonight. I need to backup all the partitions once again and them double check to make sure which partitions actually contain data in them and which don't. For the partitions that do not contain data.. I want to try to look into other methods of pulling those.. see whats really doable and what isn't.

If you have a list of which partitions without a doubt have data after backing up.. and which don't.. that'd speed things up. If not, don't worry about it.

All the other partitions shouldn't contain any any unique data from the phone and partitions from other devices could be shared without worry... but yes.. it'd be much easier if we all had our own backups.

I'm not sure this latest update is right.
It backed up the 3 img files to folder EFS_Backup, which all 3 were the same file size, 780kb. And it never created a flashable zip. I thought the second version did.
And if I were to follow the directions in the OP to restore... I don't think it will restore.
Am I missing something? Like the flashable zip that has the "backup????sh"?

Edit. I just reran it and still don't have the "efsbackupflash.zip anywhere.
I do see it in the ZERO.zip though. So do we use the Zero_EFS.zip to restore it now?
