With our new functions in the software we would like to make your job easier. This is why we added Firmware Extractor, TAC Device Check and IMEI Blacklist Check. You can find these in utilities tab.

In this help we are going to introduce you to these funtions.

Firmware extractor: With this easy to use exctract tool you can extract all types of firmware files. Our wizard will auto-detect the format and it works for almost all formats.

The use of this is very straightforward you have to select the firmware file which you want to be exctracted in the first line and then in the second line select the location where you want to be the firmware to be exctracted.

IMEI Blacklist Check: If you are not sure about that whether the IMEI number of the device is blocked or not and that is the reason for the issues you experience or you want to make sure that you do not change the IMEI of the device into a blacklisted IMEI, you can check the IMEI of the device with the IMEI Blacklist check.

You can find the IMEI Blacklist check inside Chimera Tool-Utilities menu.

You can also check the IMEI of the device on the Chimera Tool website, after you log in you go inside the Dashboard and the IMEI Blacklist Check will be displayed in the home menu and in the IMEI Blacklist Check menu as well, here you can once again view the results of previously done IMEI Blacklist checks among the IMEI Blacklist Check History, this can help you if you are not sure of a previously checked IMEI.


The IMEI Blacklist Check will consume7 credits every time it is used, even if you check the same IMEI number later. The IMEI Blacklist Check will also require the user to possess an active Chimera Tool license.

TAC Device Check: The TAC is the the first 8 digits of the the 15-digit IMEI and 16-digit IMEISV codes, this is used to uniquely identfy wireless devices. The TAC and IMEI are also the references operators use to block stolen devices from accessing networks. There are many use cases for TAC including device authentication, mobile network optimization and app troubleshooting.

Here is an example of the TAC number of an SM-G960U.
