Default [TOOL] [APP] [ROOT] [i9082/i9082L] EFS Backup [v0.1]

EFS BACKUP AND RESTORE APP
for i9082 and i9082L

Developed by xenon92

An app to help you backup your EFS Partition and Restore it if necessary.
No Terminal and No Commands.
Simple taps on the screen.


* ROOT PERMISSIONS NEEDED *



Why you need to backup your EFS?

>> READ THIS <<
INSTRUCTIONS

BACKUP
Tap Backup. That's all.
You'll find 'efs.img' in the folder 'EFS_Backup' in your storage memory.
Copy it to your PC or Cloud to be safe.


RESTORE
Open the app once. Exit the app.
Place 'efs.img' in the folder 'EFS_Backup' in your memory. (Folder will be automatically made at first run of the app).
Tap Restore.


WARNING: Do Not RESTORE your EFS until absolutely necessary. If everything is working fine, just BACKUP, don't RESTORE. Read more about it in the link above.





Source

DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible if you mess up your phone using this app. The functioning of this app is the same as I have explained in the link above. Restoring EFS is dangerous. If you feel unsafe, use the guide I have made in the link above and use Terminal Commands. This app simply implements those Terminal commands in a user friendly way to backup and restore EFS.

A file named 'efs.img' should be inside 'EFS_Backup' Folder. That is your backup. You should find the folder in the internal memory.

i am not able to see the .img file after backing of the efs through this apk in the phone memory. Currently using es file explorer with root option enabled.( in Carbon 4.4.2 by xenon92). I am in doubt whether any .img file has been created or not. I have not tried the terminal emulator method though.

But using the same apk in stock 4.2.2, i was able to back up the 20 mb size .img file.

I doubt whether I wud be able to restore the same in these custom roms ....just in case it becomes necessary....
