In one plain/simple answer, what is the point of using this tool and what are the benefits? Excuse my ignorance but I'm just plain interested and dont know what it does?
If you were to lose your IMEI, you basically have paperweight. So before you toot on Samsung phones always back it up

Hi Mr.W0lf

I'm almost at root moment and found this useful tool of yours. (SM-G900M here)

I was wondering if it would be plausible to do a full Nandroid backup using yours script template and the addition partitions (by-name) found here.

My objective here would be to backup everything BEFORE flashing a Custom Recovery, having only CF-Autoroot.

Thanks for any words regarding this.

Nice regards.
