LTE devices have a QualcommChip, where everything is stored in the nvRAM, the EFS includes only files that have nothing but absolutely nothing to do with the IMEI.

I've done some basic google searching on this and I guess this has been an issue/discussion since older Galaxies?

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?

I messed up my imei on my S5 so I used this tool to back up my other S5 and I restored all files to my messed up S5, worked fine, I'm surprised it did without any issue by using another phone's backup.

Really? I don't think IMEI works that way.

I have the Sprint S5, rooted and in USB debug mode, All I see is:

Starting
Waiting for device
*daemon not running, starting it now on port 5037 *
*daemon started successfully *




Does this indicate a connection issue?
