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.

The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
