numfarr:
Neets: Me again (sorry)
I've installed Terminal Emulator
I've given it Super User rights.
I've typed:
cp /efs/nv_data.bin /sdcard/

And pressed ENTER

The message I get is: cp: not found.

Does anyone know why, and if so, have I done something wrong, and is there something I can do to get this working so I can take a backup of /efs.

Thanks


Did you actually type "su" followed by Enter at the command line? The prompt should change to "#". You can check you have the right access with the command "ls /efs", which should show:

imei   nv_data.bin   nv_data.bin.md5


Thanks for the reply.  Yes I had the # after typing "su" [enter].

I've done as you've suggested, and it shows:
nv_data.bin.md5
imei
nv_data.bin
#

Yet I still get the "cp: not found" message.

I used to have it saved.  From memory it's TYV20.  You'll know if it's right when you enter it :) 


Thanks Neets and kiwijunlist :)

Wipeout: Quick question peeps. My battery life seems pretty average. Everyone has said that this phone stands out when it comes to the battery life. So far, I have to recharge every 15 hours or so... Is this normal?  


Sounds about rite, especially with medium/heavy use. Or what apps are running.
Stink. Cry haha... Oh well, one hopes for better battery technology. :> 


This is info. I've gathered trawling through forums and posts around the place.

You can try, disabling 3G, disabling Bluetooth and wireless when not in use. Screen Brightness and also whether u are using Live wallpapers (huge battery drainage). If u use live wallpapers try 2 use ones that use a black background as they'll use less power. I think there are some ROM's floating around that increase battery life a bit. I did notice when I was using it purely for calls and texts and the odd app. it lasted a day and a half.  But when I was playing videos, listening 2 music, web surfing and downloading/installing apps etc. battery life was significantly lower.

Hope that helps :)

Man Kies Updating Utility Sux! Apart from constantly getting the internet no connected message every so often. It's now reached 100% download even though it's only 14770 of 70966KB and getting the internet not connected message every 20sec. What will be really annoying/ frustrating after all this it doesn't install lol

 Probably your busybox install didn't create symlinks for the commands, try:

 #busybox cp /efs/nv_data.bin /sdcard

Thanks numfarr, adding the "busybox" before the command worked a treat.  Cheers.

I've been running the JPK firmware now since Saturday and found MASSIVE improvements in speed, lack of lag and general use. It might be all in my head, but i think battery life has also improved by a few hours also.

Big thanks to @NZTechFreak for putting up with a few stupid questions in me figuring out how to flash (the phone)

Glad you're enjoying it knate.

Found another little 2.2 tip at XDA this morning - pressing (and holding) the back button, then pressing the home button will save current screen as image file.

Standby battery life seems good with JPK, have hardly been using the phone but still 39% left after 58 hours unplugged with Wifi and Bluetooth on is pretty good.

ranton: Hmmm tempted to try it... but wondering if its possible to revert to the New Zealand Specific firmware any way?


I'd go talk to a Vodafone store and see if they can flash back to original firmware. In playing around (trying to fix the 3 button Reset being disabled) i switched firmware which fixed the 3br thing, so i never really thought twice about using JPK after losing the original VF NZ firmware.

Let us know if you have any success with Voda firmware, i'd be interested to know if its possible as a just incase.
