Soten T71 MT6589 CPU

I've got a few of these tablest with original 4.2.2 KitKat and quad core cpu. I also got Scatter file for it and can flash it using SPF. I was wondering could I replace system.img file with android version 5.0 or agove? Need higher android so I can get full use of flash .

Also, any advice on how to cook a rom 5.0 or above for MT6589 is welcomed

1st for rom you will use as base, get permission of its developers before doing it...
2nd the setup wizard you are talking about(i guess where we have to touch android) is by app in system/app named SetupWizard.apk but i think you should not delete it. it also controls few other things.
3rd replace/delete app you know about...(system/app)
4th i don't know much about preloaded settings... all i know is you will need to edit smali files of apk....
is there any wrong with using this one downloadeble mata file for all device ?
i have backuped system folder with es without root, any problem will be?

Adding/removing applications
1. Go to the working folder where you extracted your rom, inside you will find:
OR
2. Then go to "system/app" inside this folder you will find all the rom applications(apks) you may also find some in the data folder if your rom has this folder.
3. Copy, replace, and change any app(apk) be carefull if you dont know what the apk is do not delete!!
LIST OF APPS YOU CAN DELETE - HERE OR HERE
If you can not find some apps in this guide then try opening all those app in your phone and see app name and icon or move those apps from system/app to sdcard and see what is not working...
there are folders for every apk with a folder named "arm" containing an odex file. how can i add a new apk(how to build an odex or can i done without it)?

can i replace system apps with it's update to update my Android version?

Building a rom for that would be overkill. You would probably be best either to ask your question in a device specific thread/forum OR simply switch your Launcher application to one that has the feature already built.

Sponsoring a rom from a real dev

Is there a way to find a developper to make a lineage ROM for my device ?
I've not the skills and the time to do it, but I would sponsor somebody, that could do the job and give it back for the community... Any Idea how to do it, who could do it ?
