probably a real noob question but I'm not real familiar with lg devices, what is efs exactly? does it effect gps in anyway? and can you restore efs on any rom?

Don't know about 10p.

FreeGee has an option to backup you EFS from within the app. Of course you can back it up in every way you would like. However, you will want to copy the freegee folder (or whatever backups you do) with that backup in it to your external SD or computer so it doesn't get wiped. The reality is, you most likely won't ever need that backup. It's a worse case scenario.

Just be careful when formatting partitions on the OGP. Only format system, cache, and data/media partitions, and doe the regular wipes and you'll be fine.

if you don't know what to use it for then don't. if you need it for a specific reason do it.

Don't understand why people do this. Seriously.
@deadenz that's the partition where your imei is stored.

If I'm not wrong in the Freegee thread you can read that EFS plays an important part on bypassing the bootloader.

Thus, having it backed up can play an important part in case Murphy pays you a visit.

Okay so have roughly 15-16 hours of research and development on my part I have to wait to root my phone because after unbricking my soft brick from attempted OTA I learned that I simply flashed my phone to 10P not 10K. Stupid me. Flashing it wasn't hard it was just time consuming finding the TOT and what not. So I'll be monitoring the forums patiently waiting for the root of 10P while I attempt to create a root for 10P myself. Since I have acquired a G pro on 10P from a Co worker. WISH ME LUCK

Using this method:

...I was able to do mine in 30min or so (once I had all the big files downloaded!). I used the TOT linked in that thread.

Just don't try it in Win8. I could never get it to work on my Win8.1 laptop. I borrowed my wife's Win7 computer and it worked on the first shot with no fuss.
