Please make sure you have a recent back up of your phone. Also doubly make sure to backup your /efs folder and your /dev/block/platform/15570000.ufs/by-name/RADIO device. There is a risk of permanently bricking your device if the radio upgrade fails. Remember this is all at your own risk. I promise no function or fitness of use. This will probably cause your phone to blow up and start a thermonuclear war and trip your Knox counter

Since its such a precious folder I would do this

tar cf /data/local/tmp/efs.tar /efs/*
dd if=/dev/block/platform/15570000.ufs/by-name/EFS of=/data/local/tmp/efs.img

then adb pull those files to your computer and put them in a safe place

What changes, if any, have been made to the original dump that @Sunderwear provided? I assume you replaced the app_process files, but any other changes?

I did that a bit differently. Supersu made backups of the original files. I just restored those. No other changes other then making a user friendly zip

Looking at the package, it only replaces your System partition, your Kernel, and your Radio.

An Odin-to-Stock would theoretically revert any damage this could do.

+1 I just wanted people to aware of the potential risk. Everything went fine for me but I don't want to give people a false sense of security.
