[Q] PIT/EFS Backup of a brand new P6800
since last weekend I'm also a proud owner of a Galaxy Tab 7.7 Wifi+3G 16GB (P6800). Now I have read a lot of threads about rooting,...
But at the very beginning I want to make a backup of all essential parts. In a first step this will include the partition table and the EFS Filesystem.
Is it true that I'm able to get a backup of my partition table (PIT file) even without rooting my device?
Are the following steps correct?:
1) Put device in download mode
2) Detect device with heimdall
3) Download PIT with Heimdal
Can something go wrong with this method, or should this be absolutely safe?
To backup my EFS partition, I thought of the following steps:
- Rooting the device
- Using some tool to backup the EFS partition (like KTool for the SGSII / Galaxy Note)
Is there a tool which can provide such a function for the Galaxy Tab?
Or do I need to do it manually, e.g. via "dd" and terminal emulator?
