Warning
I was able to get a backup, want to make sure 2 things so I know I got it right. for the results xAlexx posted my results had a "WARNING: Cannot find 1 file" does this mean I do not have a proper efs backup? 2nd, file size is 208kb which seems too small as my efs for my note 2 is a little over 20megs.

Edit: Okay edited line 51 in .bat file, from Z to z on Tmo 9000t and it seems to resolved the warning issues, file is now 245 KB from 240KB

On the log noticed this: Warning: Couldn't compute FAST_CWD pointer. Please report this problem to the public mailing list [email protected] - - - - Is this another Fail?

Sorry for long winded detailed post but been rooting/modding since the g1 and I have never EVER been a little nervous about verifying backups and/or flashing stuff in TWRP, want to make sure IF something happens I have my efs and as mentioned my efs for note 2 was just over 20 MB's.

I have the following, I copied the original file into a different directory as I didn't want to open the original, paranoia is a b*Tch LOL!!

1 Master File SM-N900TZKETMB_N900TUVUBMI7_RV1D94HD8EY_EFS.zip - 245 KB

Files inside .zip are 4
1. SM-N900TZKETMB_N900TUVUBMI7_RV1D94HD8EY_EFS.raw.img - 512 KB
2. SM-N900TZKETMB_N900TUVUBMI7_RV1D94HD8EY_EFS.tar.gz - 39.2 KB
3. SM-N900TZKETMB_N900TUVUBMI7_RV1D94HD8EY_EFS.tar.md5 - 5.62 MB
4. getprop.txt - 13.2 KB

Thanks all the xda'ers for the help and for the dev for brining us this to our devices!!!

nobody can give EFS folder because EFS is only for 1 phone (IMEI)
Every phone have unique EFS

1. Install Stock firmware via Odin, then re-run auto-root (to regain root of course)

2. Install TWRP 2.6.3.2 via odin, reboot to recovery.

3. Do an "adb shell" when phone is in recovery mode to run commands via TWRP.

From the ADB shell: Wiped the EFS partition with the following command:

mke2fs /dev/block/mmcblk0p12
mkdir /efs
mount -t ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p12 /efs

(the last two commands probably did nothing, but thats what I did anyway)

Do a factory reset, reboot system

! Need for backup Root access and debugging USB
1. Extract from the zip and run .bat file
2. Is okay to your PC and follow the menu


Automatically create a text file of all the parameters of the device at the time of the copy
Automatic backup of efs:
* Odin flash file -. tar.md5,
* dd copy - raw.img
* tar.gz archive (need busybox)
Automatic naming of files and backup archive version of the firmware
Restore to choose from archives and backup images
Automatic start of Odin and the transition to the flashing mode when selecting Odin Restore


Is this another right way to backup efs?
I seen it on italian forum for note 3.
I tried the backup .. not the restore.

1.Download terminal emulator from playstore
2. Open it and write: su
3. Allow root permission if asked
4. Write this: dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p11 of=/storage/extSdCard/efs.img bs=4096
5. Look at your ext sd for efs.img (14 mb)


To restore efs:

1. It's necessary efs.img in external SD Card
2. Open Terminal emulatorand write: su
3. Write this: dd if=/storage/extSdCard/efs.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p11 bs=4096
4. Reboot

Worked thanks, it is 14mb don't know if it actually did it correctly. Anyway to test without actually doing the restore? Remember start terminal and type su then hit enter you should get the pop up to allow root.
