Can anyone who is rooted and has access to terminal on the phone dump their persist partition and upload a copy here please?

It needs to be from a Pixel 3 Device preferably running Android 10 Oct 5 Update.

To execute the dump please follow the steps below:

Open Terminal Emulator on Rooted Pixel 3
type su
grant Super User permissions

then type: dd if=/dev/block/by-name/persist of=/sdcard/persist_backup.img

this will copy your persist partition to sdcard and name it persist_backup.img then proceed with uploading it.

Reason I'm looking for this particular partition is since I was affected by the Android 10 Bug which affectes sensors I have deleted my persist partition in the process of trying to fix the sensors issue myself.

Thanks in advance!

N.B. the persist partition does not contain any sensitive/private data, it contains the factory calibration files for the sensors in the device (gyroscope, accelerometer, proximity etc...)

Thanks again!
