You have to dd it to a .img file first, then copy it from your sdcard to your phone, just to be on the safe side.

Re: Tutorial - SIM Unlock
Is there a way to know if the nvram is corrupted ? I used that method last year because of my phone being always in emergency mode after receiving too many sms (more than 500 in a short time were sent)

Just to quickly answer your question properly. Here is how I did it. There might be other ways, but this one worked quite well for me:

Connect your phone with usb debugging enabled and make sure it's well connected:
adb devices #You should see some number now.

adb shell
make sure you got superuser rights:
su
a # will appear

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p11 of=/sdcard/nvram.img #or whatever you wanna call the backed up .img file.

then exit the shell

then type:

adb pull /sdcard/nvram.img #or whatever you called the backup img

you ll find it in your adb folder then. Make sure you keep it safe

*Important commands are in RED. Maybe I missed something, so if you have problems, just tell me. But that should be pretty much it.

Of course you need adb set up, for this to work. There is a small package in my Noob-HOW-TO and you can also find A LOT of tutorials all over xda about adb.
