EFS/IMEI Tool N9005

attachment.php

As we know On N9005 (qualcomm) IMEI number no more stored on EFS partition so no meaning to make backup of only efs.img
Thanks to @lyriquidperfection for information about IMEI stored on ModemST1 and ModemST2 partition, basis on this information here is simple tool to make backup of complete IMEI (efs.img.ext4 + nvrebuild1.bin and nvrebuild2.bin)

As we know sometimes we do have multiple device and multiple backup and that making us confuse which backup is for which device, also it difficult to guess when exactly we made particular backup. to overcome all these issue I have made some change in script and new version will make backup in folder name MyEFS_MM-dd-yyyy_hh.mm_Device IMEI So you can keep multiple backup.
Also it will copy build prop file along with backup, so that will give complete information about your ROM when you made backup.

- To backup long press EFS backup option icon, it will backup all three required partition like efs.img.ext4,nvrebuild1.bin and nvrebuild2.bin. Also you will find build.prop file, which is just to get information about ROM when backup was created.
- To restore simply copy all three backup files efs.img.ext4, nvrebuild1.bin and nvrebuild2.bin to root directory of Int SD card and then long press Restore option icon.

Kindly make 2-3 backup and check everything working fine.
Again Thank you for testing.

Yeah it was there in template, will remove in next version. btw you need not to keep installed this application if you are worried about current permission, simply make backup and uninstall.
Actually these permissions for there for adding ad but later I decided not to include ad. So don't worry about permission.

Edit : I have recheck it and permission for wake device and unlock screen is due to Toast notification you are getting at end of backup/Restore.
Network permission because I have used html popup menu (When touching Backup/restore menu text it pop up detail) because I can add any link if needed. So permissions are required,

    Of course it will be there and I have explained in OP why I have excluded restore script.
