@RantSomeWhere those arent HACKS. You just add support for your hardware. Hacks are if you modify someshit in not optimal way to make it working. But yes you need few hacks here and there if you want to port latest os for ollllddddd device.
Half year ? Thats normal time. I was lucky and ported 6.0 in 1 day. Wifi fixed in 2 weeks. Working on 8.1 for 3 days now and almost done. Then just fix boot up. But im lucky because another device which is basically like mine with few changes got 8.1 so i take few patches from there. Thats why i was able to port it in 1 day. If you dont have device very similar to yours or atleast similar which has OS support that you want to port then it can take looooooooong time. If you have just similar device lets say same CPU and GPU then most of the work is done if that device has support for that OS.
@RantSomeWhere Yeah mediatek sucks a looooooot.
