Just FYI, it doesn't replicate all functionality of stock rom. It does try to replicate Eink center from stock rom. Other functionality comes with Lineage OS.

There are ports of LineageOS for Pixel and Samsung tablets that can be used to create Boox ports. This would be better option than trying to use AndyYan's phone builds. If anyone is interested in.

Also, one needs to consider that Android is not very efficient therefore it requires decent amount of RAM which not all Boox devices have compared to phones.

I'm fully aware about LineageOS and have had it on non e-ink devices in the past over the years. It was the e-ink center functionality that I was referring to, simply emphasising that you don't lose eink specific functionality by using LineageOs instead of the stock rom.

The Boox devices obviously are capable of running Android given that the Boox ROMs are Android in the first place. But, yes, you wouldn't bother with putting LineageOS on a device that isn't much good for anything other than reading books.
