[Q] Best method for EFS backup ?
Ive been trying a number of methods to backup my efs partition and most have failed..
I have tried using A.S.ID's efs tool but i keep getting an error about choice.exe.
Have also tried EFS Profes... tool but that gets stuck at "initialising ADB server"
Anyway i have searched around for the "how to" and tried doing it manually but i have no idea if it was correct.
Can someone correct me if i am wrong please.
This is the command i used in ADB
root@hlte:/ # dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/efs of=/sdcard/efs.img
28672+0 records in
28672+0 records out
14680064 bytes transferred in 1.106 secs (13273113 bytes/sec)
I now have a efs.img in my sdcard...
The problem i now have is that, do i .tar the img file to flash with odin for a restore when needed...
If you have an alternative please let me know.
