In this guide, we will show you the steps to extract the Motorola PAC Firmware file using SPD Flash Tool. Motorola devices have always provided their firmware files in a ZIP format. As a result, it became quite an easy task in the extraction of the stock firmware. But why the need to extract the firmware arises in the first place? Well, there could be quite a few reasons for the same.
To begin with, it could be used to fix bootloop or soft-brick issues by flashing the stock firmware files via Fastboot Commands. Along the same lines, you could also get the stock boot.img file that could then be patched via Magisk and flashed via Fastboot to obtain root. However, as of now things seems to be changing in the Motorola ecosystem.
Its devices might be shifting to the Unisoc chipset and we already have a member in the form of Moto G20. For the unawares, Unisoc and Spreadtrum chipset device’s firmware comes in a PAC format, which cannot be extracted the normal way. So you would instead have to use a standalone tool to carry out this process. And this guide shall help you with just that. Given here are the steps to extract the Motorola PAC Firmware file using SPD Flash Tool. Follow along.
