Note about MTK firmware files[edit]

The firmware files found from MTK devices differ a lot depending on manufacturer and how they were dumped.

MTK firmware files may come as just a single BIN file, while others may be split into parts. Do note that some MTK firmware files are compressed, and this compression is not fully understood. If a firmware file for an MTK phone looks like nothing but random noise in a hex editor or white noise in an audio editor, it's either compressed or encrypted from some sort of box software.

USB file transfer[edit]

This also depends from manufacturer but these kinds of phones usually show up as a mass storage device when plugged into a computer.
