Require ROOT permissions

We all known that EFS partition holds the imei,sn ,wifi mac & other important data.
In Snapdragon the EFS partition are modemst1 ,modemst2 & FSG partitions. so it's important to take backup of these partitions.
1.connect your phone to PC , adb debugging enabled & goto adb shell by,

Code:
adb shell su
OR
Open terminal emulator app in your phone & take super user permissions, by
Code:
su
2.type following commands to backup imei partitions.
Code:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p16 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p16_modemst1
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p17_modemst2
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p20 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p20_fsg
also these are some important partition you should consider to backup.
modem, fsc, bk1, ddr.

Code:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p23 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p23_modem
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p9 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p9_DDR
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p12 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p12_bk1
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18 of=/sdcard/mmcblk0p18_fsc
Now the backup is stored in you internal storage ,store these files in safe place.
in case u get invalid imei or unknown, restore these partitions.
To restore these partitions,

Code:
dd if=/sdcard/mmcblk0p16_modemst1 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p16
dd if=/sdcard/mmcblk0p17_modemst2 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17
dd if=/sdcard/mmcblk0p20_fsg of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p20
dd if=/sdcard/mmcblk0p23_modem of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p23
dd if=/sdcard/mmcblk0p9_DDR of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p9
dd if=/sdcard/mmcblk0p12_bk1 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p12
dd if=/sdcard/mmcblk0p18_fsc of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18
Working on Aroma EFS backup restore tool..

NOTE:-
Don't use tools or commands from other device because different devices has different partition address, that will result in wrong backups.
To use this method to backup other phones EFS , u should find your partition info.

None of the usual ROM / kernel flashing result in loss of these partitions .
If someone is able to screw up partitions, chances are that he will remove the partition table too ..
and with that he will not be able to fastboot anymore , to use backups made here.

Don't get me wrong, but its of little use imo.
