In order to do so, pages in the unsupported: namespace should answer the following questions:

  1. What does it mean, “NAND flash is unsupported”?
    • This means that the NAND flash will not work, you can not use the NAND flash of your device with OpenWrt.
  2. What is the reason for the unsupported status?
    • No Open Source driver available
    • FIXME …list other reasons…
  3. What consequences does this have in regards to your expectations?
    • Expectation: Full NAND flash available.
    • Reality: No NAND flash available at all.
  4. Will this status change over time? If yes, in what timeframe?
    • Nobody knows. Search the forum for current support status.
  5. What can you do now?
    • Easy / Short term: Get a device where NAND flash is supported OpenWrt, or a device with NOR flash.
    • Hard / Long term: ? FIXME
  6. Where can you find more information about current support status?
