Android ROM packages come with a lot of files and they often use different file formats. system.new.dat.br is one of the most commonly used file formats to compress the data to be delivered in a ROM.
In this guide, let us see how to extract the system.new.dat.br file to get the system.new.dat file (which you can further extract to get the system.img file).
Follow the below steps to extract system.new.dat.br file:
Step 1. Download the brotli.exe file to your computer.
