So I bought a Huawei Mediapad T5 10 with LTE - however, I screwed up because I bought the 16GB 2GB Ram version instead of the 32 GB 3GB RAM version and this leads me to a problem; The EMUI of Huawei really sucks because without any app the system occupies around 1.6 GB and I guess this is the reason that the tablet feels useless . the keyboard constantly crashes, I can't watch a video on Chrome without jerks, is is a total mess (I know that it is a low budget device but considering that Huawei wants to become the biggest phone and tablet manufacturer they should either provide a suitable software or not sell a 2 GB version)
So having such an experience out of the box is a terrible thing;
So I had no idea about custom ROMS until yesterday evening so please excuse me if I still don't know everything and I need some help;
So I realized that the bookloader is locked at Huawei devices and that with my firmware it is not possible to unlock - so I followed an explanation for the Mediapad M5 which has the same problem and downgraded the Firmware and now I can unlock the bootloader with the DC Unlocker;
But now I found this great patch and therefore I wanted to ask:
1. Do I need an unlocked bootloader to flash tthe patch?
2. Can I leave EMUI on the device and just add the low ram patch to EMUI? Is that useful?
3. If not - what OS is recommendable and most importantly compatible to my device and the patch?
It is hard to find something
Update: Okay, I already searched a bit further and I think I already found some answers; Correct me if I am wrong...
I need to unlock the bootloader to install the low ram patch since I can only do it with TWRP which needs an unlocked bootloader; I can
1. Unlock the bootloader
2. Install TWRP
3. Install a suitable OS
4. Install the Patch
Is that correct? I think I found enough explanation on how to do those steps but I only have one big problem; I don't know what OS to use - I thought of Lineage 15.1 but the problem is: Only the Mediapad M5 is supported and not the Mediapad T5 - can I still use the Lineage OS for the T5? Or what other options do I have? Bear in mind that I have only 2 gb of ram as well...
