EFS Pro Receives Another Major Update
EFS Pro by XDA Recognized Developer lyriquidperfection has just received another major update to version 1.7.13. EFS Pro is a Windows application for backing-up and restoring information in the elusive /efs partition on Samsung devices. XDA Member Advocate Admin EGZTHUNDER1 originally reported on this app and also on a major update.
Lyriquidperfection says this update includes a custom framework to handle communication between abd.exe and the connected device. This makes the app very stable, secure, and fast. MD5 hashing is now implemented during backup and restore to check integrity. Lastly, and according to the developer a “big one,” since some devices have the /efs files in different partitions, the app now can detect the correct partition. This “future proofs” the app, and makes it compatible with many more devices without any changes to the code. As of right now, EFS Pro is confirmed working on the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Galaxy Tab series, Galaxy Note, Galaxy SII and Galaxy SIII.
If you’re already a user of EFS Pro or are hearing about this fantastic app for the first time, head on down to the original thread and check out the latest version.

It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
