I have Micromax canvas unite 4 pro/q465 running Android 5.1 [lollipop] and I want to root my phone with magisk. To root my phone I need boot.img of my stock rom because ramdisc is showing YES on my device and is there a way to extract boot.img file on NON-ROOTED PHONE ONLY ? If yes then please also mention a suitable website to download the stock rom, your effort will be appreciated.

I really appreciate this method , unfortunately I can't root my phone, so I have to download firmware and then extract boot.img from it right?
The firmware I downloaded

https://www.mediafire.com/file/edza...SW_V8.1.3_HW_V1.0.0_021116_Volte_SPD.zip/file

I tried doing this but didn't any images instead I get 3 files which I don't know too much about, is the problem is that I have to extract it using pc ? because I extracted the firmware on my phone with this app


Is this app was the problem with extracting ? Or the firmware was faulty ?

JOOC downloaded the ZIP you linked to, too, and unpacked it.

Noticed that the firmware is is stored in directory Firmware, it's housed in archive zsl859p_mmx.pac.

You've to convert the .PAC file to a .ZIP file, e.g. with ezyZip tool, to access its content.

I tried to convert the .pac file to .zip from this tool but it takes too much time , I mean that convert to zip button never loads for hours so I thought to view that .pac file first to just to get to know what's inside it and when I viewed it, I didn't find any usefull files which contain boot.img.

The app I used to view what's inside the .pac file https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.zdevs.zarchiver
