I bought a chinese tablet for mom which turns out rubbish running android 4.4.2, I'll buy her a new one in few days.

Is there a lightweight OS that would run on it? Chromium OS or lineage OS or some lightweight Linux distro like peppermint os? So that I can use it that is? Its specs are similar to amazon fire hd 7

    Unfortunately your chances are bad finding an alternative OS - on Android tablets the bootloader is usually locked (it may still be possible to unlock it), so it will only but the vendor OS.

    As many of the hardware components of have closed source drivers, many Linux distributions will not run properly and "ready to flash" build are usually built for more popular devices only.
