Finding the stock firmwares for Samsung Galaxy devices is really easy, and flashing them to the devices even easier. If you are a smartphone enthusiast, you might get into situations when flashing the stock firmware might be your last option to restore your device. If you are looking for the PIT file, you can download Samsung PIT files from below. Also, learn how you can extract PIT file from Samsung Galaxy devices yourself and here’s how.
Whether you want to recover your device from a boot loop, unroot the device and remove a custom recovery, or you just want to upgrade or downgrade the OS manually, you’ll have to flash the stock firmware. If you happen to be a Samsung user and have ever flashed the official firmware, CF-Root or a recovery .tar file, you must be acquainted with the very light-weight but a handy tool called Odin. All Samsung devices have a Download or Odin mode for installing a firmware, firmware components, kernels, or custom recoveries using Odin.
If you make the required preparations before flashing the ware with Odin, things go successfully most of the time. However, there are some cases where the procedure ends up with an or and you get FAIL! message in Odin. One of the commonest forms of the errors encountered in Odin while flashing stock firmware is the “Invalid Ext4 image” and “Get PIT for mapping“ issue.
<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> Set PIT file..
<ID:0/003> DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
<ID:0/003> Get PIT for mapping..
Android devices use the EXT4 storage structure which defines the allocation of available storage space to system partitions. PIT (Partition Information Table) is an integral element of all Samsung firmware that contains the map of storage allocations for different system partitions. Since Samsung releases different variants of the same device depending on storage capacity, carrier, and region/country, the PIT structure on them differs from each other.
Don’t miss: All You Need to Know About Samsung PIT Files
When you flash firmware, Odin starts looking for the partition information table. If the PIT is detected, the installation will finish uninterrupted, but if the PIT is not detected or it’s corrupted for some reason, you might get “Get PIT for mapping” error. To fix this problem, you will have to provide the appropriate PIT in Odin to install the firmware successfully.
Remember, the PIT is always storage (and in some cases, CSC) sensitive. Thus, if you own a Samsung Galaxy S6 64GB model, you will need the PIT file for the same model number and storage capacity.
You can use Google search to get the correct PIT file for your device, but if you do not get it, there is a way you can pull it manually from your device itself. Below, we’ll see how we can extract PIT file from Samsung Galaxy devices.
Extract PIT on Samsung (Requires Root)
Requirement: To be able to use any of the methods described below, you must have root privilege on your Galaxy device. Both the methods have been tested on the Samsung Galaxy S5.
Method 1: Using Terminal Emulator on Device
- Install the Terminal Emulator app from the Google Play store:[googleplay url=”https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm”]
- Also, install the BusyBox app. Launch the app and then tap the Install option.[googleplay url=”https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=stericson.busybox”]
- Now open Terminal Emulator and grant root permission when prompted.
- Now type the following command:
- Then type the following command in Terminal Emulator:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 of=/sdcard/out.pit bs=8 count=580 skip=2176
- Now browse your phone’s storage to find the backed up PIT file and save it on your PC for future use.
Method 2: Using ADB Commands on Computer
- To use ADB commands, you will have to install the Android SDK Platform-tools on your computer.
- Go to Settings> Developer options and enable USB Debugging on your device.
- Now launch a command prompt on your computer. You can do so by placing the mouse pointer on an empty space on the desktop and then pressing Shift key+Right mouse-click. Select Open command window here option.
- Connect your Samsung device to the PC using the stock USB cable.
- In the command window, issue the following command and press the Enter key on the keyboard:
adb devices adb shell su
- When SU is called, grant root permission on your device and type the following command:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 of=/sdcard/out.pit bs=8 count=580 skip=2176
- Your device’s PIT should be backed up to the internal storage of the device. Save it on your computer.

Hi folks anyone have the .pit for Samsung Galaxy G900R4? Need this desperately.
samsung galaxy gt s5830i pit file
would love to give the pit for SM-G920X but there is no mmcblk0 file not found 🙁 So I can’t backup.
Having the same proble here, did yo find a solution?
I have a Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 (G5210). If I extract the PIT file to send to someone that needs it, will it contain any personal info? If I have rooted it and uninstalled some system apks, will the PIT file be incomplete?…thanks
PIT does not contain any of those info and has nothing to do with installed or uninstalled apps. It means Partition Information Table and it only contains configuration map for internal storage.
Has anyone had this work with note 4
Not tested on the Note 4 but it should work. The location of the PIT files on most Galaxy devices is the same. It’s safe to try.
I have and pulls fine. Fails in odin. Have tried with himedall and fail on use. Don’t know if note 4 or chip is to blame but if anyone gets this to work the whole note 4 community on xda would sure love to know.
Can you show the Odin screenshot?
I did this back in December will look for link in xda tomorrow. Ordered a replacement phone. Have seen a few guys pull the pit post it on xda and people brick the phone. If I find the old screen shots I will post the links.
