It would be really nice to have AOSP on pre-Oreo devices, wouldn’t mind having LineageOS on my 50€ piece of crap MediaTek phone.

Maybe I’m talking out of my ass here, but aren’t Android Bootloader’s extremely specific to the device? I thought that they were basically a baremetal implementation of drivers required to initialize RAM and load the Android image, with no underlying similarities beyond this (unlike, say BIOS or UEFI). Wouldn’t there need to be a ton of work to Port this “postmarket-OS” from device to device?
