Opening PIT files

Did your computer fail to open a PIT file? We explain what PIT files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your PIT files.

What is a PIT file?

The .pit file extension is used for a firmware file format that was developed by Samsung. These .pit files are usually found in Samsung mobile phones that run on the Android platform. These PIT files are bundled with the other device drivers and firmware component files of these Samsung smartphones.

A PIT file is used by the firmware components of these Samsung mobile devices for allowing users to manipulate the partition of their Android handset's internal memory. These .pit files contain lines of code and resources that are used by the firmware of these Samsung mobile phones for carrying out internal memory partitioning tasks requested by the user.

These .pit files do not contain human-readable data. This is why it's best to leave these PIT files alone. Doing this will ensure that the internal memory partitioning functions of these Samsung smartphones will continue to work properly.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
