Thanks,

If it's mt81xx you can try porting the ROM. Devices trees are in the first post.

Regards.

PS: Building new ROM with some fixes.

The CPU is listed as mt8165 but it uses (mt6752/32) sources. The kernel source is the old 3.4 version which does build ok. The tablet was updated to MM and that uses the 3.18 kernel but Lenovo never released the 3.18 kernel source. I believe it's possible to build Lineage 14.1 using the 3.4 kernel but as I am novice at compiling I doubt I would ever get it working.
