When I try this method it just sits at "Initializing ADB Server..." http://androidcentral.us/2013/11/bac...hone-tutorial/
When I try this method (I assume the backup section talking about software download means to open EFS Professional and do it in there at that point), it states my "Device Not Connected!": http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1946915
I read that some having trouble with EFS Professional post 4.3 had luck with Andromizer, but the IMEI backup option is missing under tools and I tried 4.2.7 and 4.2.8.
And kTools was specific stating it worked for x phones and I9305 wasn't listed.
Note: I am having other problems with the phone detailed in another post. I don't think they are related but they very well could be.
Carrier: T-Mobile (Germany)
Model number: GT-I9305
Android Version: 4.3
Baseband version: I9305XXUEMK1
Kernel version: 3.0.31-2051278
Build number: JSS15J.I9305XXUEML5
This was simply ignorance on my part. The QPST directions I found were listed with EFS Pro and in the instructions it said to start the "Software Download". Since I didn't see software download or a backup tab, I thought it was referring to in EFS Pro. In QPST under the menu "Start Clients" is the "Software Download." It backed up fine for me.
Note: From what I read, sometimes instead of the port name saying "... QC Diagnostics" it says Unknown. Mine did, but I just selected the unknown port and it worked fine.
