Since the hikey970 uses the kirin970 SoC, shouldn’t it be feasible to use an android image from a phone that uses the same chipset? For example, the P20 Pro is nearly identical in specs and uses the kirin970 chipset. I’m trying to flash the LineageOS made for the P20 Pro to see if I can get it working and have the drivers for the GPU working.
My problem is, the image partitions are named differently and I’m not sure which partition to flash to which on the hikey970. Any thoughts from the more experienced? Does anyone think it might be possible to extract the drivers for the SoC and integrate them into a blank AOSP image?
