Physical Extraction - MTK method

MTK method is a way of extracting a physical image from phones equipped with MediaTek chipsets without root access. 

This method does not work for most MTK devices with locked bootloaders. In order to use the MTK method on such devices, the bootloader has to be unlocked first. 

Please note that the physical image is as big as the full phone storage.
