Hey guys, worst part about samsung devices is always their EFS issues.. my samsung tool app has already gained support for SM-G900A, SM-G900F, SM-G900H, SM-G900T before root and custom roms are available, so first thing is first, root(when available) and backup EFS!
ive kept all downloads and discussion within the original thread here! - SAMSUNG TOOL APP HERE

this was made possible by leoaudio13 dumping his partition table!

thats because nothing was accessible until after root, dumping system was easy, but any other directory/file on the device wasnt able to be read after until being rooted..
samsung didnt even include tar binary so I dumped over adb, then CF helped root and then we dumped raw images!
