looking for any way to back up EFS with stock recovery
I recently bricked a replacement S4 by recovering a TWRP backup to a new phone and wiped out the EFS partition. So my big think is backing up the EFS partition before making major changes like recoveries, ROMs, etc . I've gotten nowhere with the EFS Pro process and don't know enough to know why but it seems like either Knox is stopping a suspicious process or the SELinux enforced status is causing the problems. If you've got any way to back up EFS without breaking Knox, installing a custom recovery or any other permanent change, I'd love to see it in your tool. I plan to change the recovery and ROM as soon as I have a usable EFS backup so I'll give up on Knox before changing recoveries or ROMs. I'm using a N900T on AT&T. Just trying to be secure before risking a full-retail-price phone.

How about AT&T changes like the APN settings and maybe the build.prop so I can get some of the AT&T utilities?

I'm ready to test when you have anything.

I am looking at doing a build prop editor, but later release. As for APN settings, maybe a guide, but it's pretty easy to change. Unlocking tool will be in 2nd update hopefully.

This last week's been slow, just replaced my N900T because I dropped my last one. Now rooted w/ knox 0x0 and everything still showing official too. I think I'm going to go with a mixture of Vroot followed by a cleanup script for the toolkit rooting KNOX 0x0 option. Slow processed right now.

I've been using Xprivacy to monitor what apps request what data, so fast after Vroot I haven't seen any apps requesting my personal info or phone info like IMEI. Sooo, I'm going to day Vroot is a good option for getting around KNOX.

Why not use root de la vega?

(I'm aware it trips knox if you're past MI7)

Several reasons, biggest being they don't want there files redistributed, says on there thread.

Second for a person that is new to rooting I believe that the process can be a bit much. It's almost an intro into Linux and Android just to get the phone rooted with there method, and if a newb isn't paying attention to there build number I don't want them *itching to be about it afterwards because they voided there warranty. With Vroot it either works or it doesn't. From what I've tested they don't offer a method that triggers KNOX.

Makes perfect sense. Thank you for the info
