Recent changes:
-Working on galaxy s series...
-S3 Fixed...(Hopefull).
-Added: Samsungs Qualcomm NVRam Backup/Restore Function...
-Changed "External" sdcard To "INTERNAL" Sdcard...!!!

(Due To Many Devices With All Different "ExtSdCard" mnt Points/Directories I Have Decided To Modify My Code...).

I Can't Stay Adding New Known External MountPoints/Directories In Updates, But This Last Solution Solves In Most Cases The Problem With Compatibility, I Think.

Now It Should Work On The Most Stock/Custom Roms...

"BrickLooped" my Verizon Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900V) I didnt see the warning, ran this app and found that it caused my phone to go into an endless "BrickLoop" state. I am TRYING to find out how to restore my Note3 SM-N900V back to Stock and many attempts using ODIN were unsuccessful. :( If anyone here has/had this issue, please please let me know how I can get this fixed.
