In this tutorial, we will show you the steps to extract fastboot images from .ozip file for Realme/Oppo devices. Earlier most of the OEMs used to upload their device’s firmware file in a simple compressed format. The user just had to extract the content of that file like they do for any other ZIP file. However, things have now changed around the Android ecosystem. While some OEMs upload the firmware in .bin format, others like Oppo and Realme takes the OZIP route.
Talking about the latter, the extraction of these files requires Python, and only then you could get hold of the desired firmware files. This will then allow you to use the system and vendor dump files, use the stock boot.img file for rooting purposes, and carry out other related tasks. So with that in mind, here are the required steps to extract fastboot images from the .ozip file for Realme and Oppo devices. Follow along for the complete instructions.

- When it’s done, you will get a ZIP file of the same name as that of the OZIP firmware.
- You will now have to move this firmware ZIP file inside the URT Tool folder.
- Now launch the URLTool by double-clicking on the URTTool.bat file
- The tool will now ask you to select the firmware file. Since there is only one firmware file inside the URT folder, you should see the firmware file occupy the first spot. So type in 1 and hit Enter.
- In the next menu that appears, select the ‘extract android image’ option. This is again the first option, so type 1 and hit Enter.
- The extraction process will now begin and you might see a few error messages, ignore them, they aren’t going to be any cause of concern. Once the extraction is done, the tool will notify you of the same.
- Furthermore, you will also see a newly created folder named 01-Project inside the URT Tool folder. Go to this folder and you could then access the extracted system, vendor, and other dump files.
- Inside this folder, there will be a folder named 1-Sources. From this folder, you could get hold of the boot, system, and vendor image files.
- Apart from the dump and IMG files, you could access other files from the firmware ZIP file that we had placed inside the URT Tool folder.
