Default Backup/Restore imei

If you just want a backup and haven't lost anything do the following.

Install and open Terminal Emulator, and enter this:

reboot nvbackup

That's it! The phone will reboot and create an on-device backup. You don't have to ever do it again as its not wiped by recovery or Odin flashes.

In the event of imei loss enter this to restore:

Reboot nvrestore

Do I have anything to lose by doing this even if it's just as a precaution?

edit: That's a dumb question. It's for precautionary measures
