ReSpeaker Banana Pi Compatibility during RPi Shortage

Hi there,
I cannot find any attempts to make the respeaker 2 mic or others work on Banana Pi now RPis are impossible to get hold of. BPi Raspbian is just a modded kernel for BPi with Raspbian or RPi OS on top, what would the steps be to still install the respeaker 2 mic? They have modded RPi kernel v4.4, v4.19, v5.17, and others. The install complains it’s not a RPi despite only having a modded kernel in Raspbian. Is there a way to get respeaker working with this config? It’s now almost the only way to replicate without using a RPi.
