Samsung EFS Tool Updated to V5, Brings Universal Device Support

You may recall that we’ve talked about XDA Recognized Contributor ricky310711‘s Samsung Tool a couple of times throughout the app’s lifespan. For those who don’t remember the name, this simple tool allows users to perform several simple but handy tasks such as backing up and restoring EFS, hot rebooting for a quick refresh, and full rebooting to recovery, download mode, or the Android OS.

Now, Samsung Tool has received a rather significant update to version 5. Chief among the new features is universal support for any Samsung device, as long as BusyBox is installed thanks to its new automatic block detection. In addition, v5 also brings md5sum checking for backups and restores for better flashing safety, improved logging, and an improved device properties menu. There is also native support for three new devices, which can be used without BusyBox.

To get started, simply head over to the original thread and store your EFS safe and sound.

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion.
