Note: The CPU is the SoC is the Mediatek MT8173C, not the MT8173, the only (as far as I can tell) difference between the two is that the MT8173C has a 2.1 Ghz clockspeed, slightly lower than the 2.4Ghz of the MT8173.
There is an _unofficial_ port of LineageOS for the device.
The kernel is at -
branch: lineage-16.0
The rom itself is at -
branch: lineage-16.0
The above repositories also contain branches for cyanogenmod and the original kernel from the vendor firmware though I am not sure they would be as reliable as LineageOS.
There is a Chromebook with the Mediatek MT8173 SoC (The Acer Chromebook R13) it has a port of ArchLinuxARM that works on it. Currently I'm only trying to use the kernel from the original firmware but I might later on try implementing the ArchLinuxARM kernel (which is directly siphoned out of ChromeOS) hopefully that is a newer kernel version.
