Talking [Q] [REQUEST] Mtk6572 custom rom development

Hello.
I am running mtk6572 on my s4 alps gti9500
I would like to know if there are any custom rooms out there such as cm or omni rom
I can give device specs. But first tell me is there any rooms out there which take about 500mb. Cuz that's about all I have.

No. MTK is notorious for poor opensource support, and their code is such a mess that even for devices that have had complete OEM source leaks for the entire Android tree (such as a few 6589 devices), it's incredibly time consuming (and brain-damaging) to integrate the support into a modern Android tree.

If you want custom firmwares, especially AOSP-derivative ones, don't buy MTK. You'll be even worse off than Samsung Exynos4/5.
*so much sig updating needed*
