Any chance that OMA' s cm13 or aosp 6.0 ROMs for the Ifive air would work on this?
They appear to have almost identical hardware and specs aside from screen size.
If these ROMs would not work what would have to be changed to allow them to work.
Thank you In advance for your help.
Is the stock firmware available?

The firmwares are available at https://techtablets.com/2017/03/ifive-mini-4s-firmware-1-05-released/
Have a look and let me know what you think.
Thank you again
I have the ifive mini 4s now. finally received it yesterday. please let me know if there is any info that I can provide to help get things started on a firmware build that will work on this. MM aosp would be nice but cm13 or lineage 13 would be great. I'm guessing lineage 14 would be a lot harder.
Thank you in advance. And again please let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
Not really sure if I could help here.
Build does not contain any mali.ko. So it must be in the kernel. That is new. Somebody do have the kernel sources?

Still have not heard back from ifive or reless electronics ( marketers of the repad8 which is a exact renamed version of this device) about source code for kernels. I am wondering if we are able to get the source for kernel which is android 5.1 will that provide enough info to possibly build a 6.1 kernel. I am curious because I would like lineage 14 because they now hide su to everything but root and system when the su daemon is not open. And it would also allow XDA user sultanxda method of hiding a unlocked bootloader by turning off verified boot in kernel so safetynet gets no response and ignores it.
Netflix with there newest version uses Google's widevine DRM and won't show up to rooted or unlocked bootloader users in play store. There is a workaround for now by just getting and installing the apk but I have read about at least one user getting there Netflix account banned this way.
Long story short still waiting on source. If a bunch more of us continue to email fnf ifive and reless electronics maybe we can get this device some custom ROM activity.

Ok, now mini 4s.
Can I have a dmesg log from the running stock firmware? Reboot the tab before doing the log.

Reboot the tab before doing the log. I need a log from 0.0000000 sec.
