MTK MRE Support

Just like the Doro PhoneEasy 626, MRE (.vxp) apps are supported on this device as well. The image that should be an MRE logo is a red X here as well, and the same minor font issues occur.

In testing, many games will display a "Not enough memory" error, likely due to the relatively low specs of the MT6253.

Firmware

There is currently one unencrypted dump available, which was done using the hidden UART test points on the logic board and RevSkills' "MTK (Pro)" tool using "MTK Generic auth (MTK)" settings.
