#1
(This post was last modified: 07-07-2017, 06:46 PM by hovatek. )

Sometimes, you need just certain files / partitions, not the entire firmware. Spreadtrum firmware mostly come in .pac format so this guide will explain how to unpack the .pac file to get the individual files

Requirements

Thanks alot hovatek i have downloaded the file already and it's safe but i do not know when to try it cos i don't have a PC. I don't know if you can help me extract the recovery image and post for me so i can just download it straight away since i don't have a system to do the procedures. Thanks a lot for the process, pretty straight forward.
