    Hi, before to inject the payload I made a backup of my nand, in particulary I made a backup of "eMMC RAW GPP" but i saw a lot of guides saying that must be done a backup of "eMMC BOOT0/1" too, i made a mistake? Or "eMMC RAW GPP" backup is enough?

    You can still make a backup of boot0/boot1. I would make one before installing AutoRCM so its not installed into your backup of boot0/boot1. But a full dump requires the rawnand (eMMC raw GPP) as well as boot0/boot1.

    Yes, boot0/boot1 is only affected by AutoRCM and firmware updates. Outside of that, it is not affected by backups or CFW.

    Thank you, sorry for my stubbornness, so if do this backup before inject payload or after inject payload, i will get the exactly same file? No differences?

    The boot0/boot1 will only change if you update or toggle AutoRCM; non-malicious payloads have no bearing on those partitions.
