Got my hands on this device and would love to gift it to my mom but currently it has a really bad software with no native language which is a must. Since its a spare device I have laying around now I thought I could experiment on it and see if I could get a Lineage OS running on it. She is only gonna use the dialer, messages and possibly the camera so Play store and other apps are not needed.

I have some experience in modding and flashing but i've never ported a rom or created a rom for that matter so this will perhaps be my 1st one.
I've read through tutorials and all but feels quite overwhelming (maybe i'm reading at the wrong places or misinterpreting) but i'm hoping to fill that gap.

So the questions I have, is it possible to flash firmware from a similar phone with some minor changes and hope it'll work or is my only route to extract firmware blobs from phone and use that to create a LineageOS of the same android version with all the other steps required?

Phone has
  • CPU SD425 Cortex-A53 1400MHz (MSM8917)
  • GPU Adreno 308 500MHz
  • RAM 2GB LPDDR3 667MHz
  • 16GB Storage + sdcard reader
  • TFT Screen 480x800
  • Android 6 is current version (Marshmallow)
