Rooting and flashing firmware is the first step towards exploring the hidden chamber of Android devices. Advance operations like rooting, flashing custom kernels, ROMs and mods makes things much more interesting and off-course secure too. Sometimes to cope with unexpected issues we also need to flash stock or custom firmware on our Android devices. Odin tool is the best and easy way to flash stock firmware, CF-Root or any .tar/.tar.md5 files on Samsung devices.
We usually encounter several issues while flashing firmware on our Samsung devices like “Invalid Ext4 image” and “Get PIT for mapping”. One of the major reason behind these errors is incompatibility of partitions sizes of device and image sizes of firmware. PIT file stands for Partition Information Table and it contains the partition table for Galaxy devices. It usually contains all the partition related details like partition name, flash file name, block size etc.
It’s bit time consuming task to find the appropriate PIT file for the specific Galaxy device because there is no such central repository where you can search them all. We have already covered some working methods in our previous articles to extract PIT file from device and some download links for some Galaxy devices. Today we come up with a tool named PIT Magic developed by an XDA member.
