[WARNING! + GUIDE] Backup and Restore IMEI / NV Data Procedure for GT-I9305
Quote:
WARNING! DO NOT FLASH YOUR DEVICE UNTIL YOU HAVE BACKED UP YOUR IMEI / NV
DATA IN THIS GUIDE!
Click HERE for information on the long awaited and all new EFS Professional v2.0 including
download! Now supporting Qualcomm devices!
Setting up QPST with your PC:
Dial *#7284# on your phone to access PhoneUtil and select 'Qualcomm USB Settings' at the bottom. Now
select 'RNDIS + DM + MODEM' and press 'OK' to return to the previous screen. Now press your 'Back' key
to exit PhoneUtil. Your phone is now in DIAG Mode.
Download and Install: SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones_1590.exe - 23.06 MB if you don't
already have Kies or a USB Driver installed.
Download and Install: QPST v2.7.378.zip - 14.68 MB
Now connect your phone to the PC with a USB cable and wait for Drivers to install.
Start the 'QPST Configuration' application and select the 'Ports' tab then press the 'Add New Port...'
button.
Select the COM Port that has 'USB/QC Diagnostic' next to it, change the Port Label if you like to 'Samsung
GT-I9305' then press 'OK'.
You should now see your phone listed in the 'Ports' tab and the 'State' should indicate 'Enabled'.
You can now Close this application.
Backing Up IMEI / NV Data:
Start the 'Software Download' application and select the 'Backup' tab.
Press the 'Browse' button and choose a Save Location for your QCN File.
Press the 'Start' button and wait for it to finish. This will back up all your phones NV Items and save them
to the QCN Backup File.
The resulting QCN Backup File should be 250KB.
Restoring IMEI / NV Data:
Start the 'Software Download' application and select the 'Restore' tab.
Press the 'Browse' button and select your QCN Backup File.
Press the 'Start' button and wait for it to finish. This will restore all your phones NV Items from the QCN
Backup File.
Your IMEI / NV Data should now be fully restored. Dial *#06# on your phones keypad to check your IMEI is
restored.
Restore USB Settings after Backup / Restore:
Dial *#7284# on your phone to access PhoneUtil and select 'Qualcomm USB Settings' at the bottom. Now
select 'MTP + ADB' and press 'OK' to return to the previous screen. Now press your 'Back' key to exit
PhoneUtil. Your phone is now back to default USB operation.
Quote:
If the 'Qualcomm USB Settings' Button is mi ssing from the PhoneUtil application then execute the following
command in a Termi nal Emulator to launch the Qualcomm USB Setti ngs page directly:
su -c 'am start -n com.sec.android.app.phoneutil/com.sec.android.app.phoneutil .USBSettings'
Please Note: You must be rooted or this command will not work.
Recovering IMEI And Data Connection After Flashing WRONG Root Package Intended For

With your Phone Switched Off, press and hold: 'VOL DN' + 'HOME' + 'POWER' to enter Download Mode.
Connect your phone to your PC via USB Cable and start Odin.

well i guess this is what i'mgoing to be looking for.
So i have no IMEI on me device and I have no backup of the EFS.
1) do I need to have a rooted device to perform this? if so I can install your pre-rooted ROM.
2) when i go to *#7284#menu I see the following screen.
[option(selected)] MODEM
[option(selected)] PDA
SAVE and RESET
so i have no "RNDIS +DM +MODEM" option, can this still work for me?
thanks

There is a 'Qualcomm USB Settings' button at the bottom of the screen in PhoneUtil. Press that and you will be able to
select "RNDIS +DM +MODEM".

Yeah! Would be interesting to know that as if the 'Qualcomm USB Settings' button is missing then the whole process is
pointless unless there is another way of invoking 'DIS +DM +MODEM'
@lyriquidperfection, many thanks for this, have made a backup just in case!

originally for AOSP Roms which I modified specifically for the I9305 to manually Enable or Disable the Diag Mode. So this
Backup and Restore method will work for everybody.
