Is RB960PGS (Hex PoE/Routerbox Pro) supported?

It's not mentioned in the ToH but I see a post from @adron seems to have OpenWRT running on it:

I would really like to use this device in my ISP and have it run OpenWRT. Can anyone clarify the status on this device? Thanks!

Status is unsupported. But you can easily add support for it because it is very similar to rb962.
Here is what you need for this:
machine_name = "960"

	/* GMAC1 is connected to the SGMII interface */
		ath79_init_mac(ath79_eth1_data.mac_addr, ath79_mac_base, 5);
		ath79_eth1_data.phy_if_mode = PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_SGMII;
		ath79_eth1_data.speed = SPEED_1000;
		ath79_eth1_data.duplex = DUPLEX_FULL;
		ath79_eth1_pll_data.pll_1000 = 0x03000101;
static struct spi_board_info rb96x_spi_info[] = {
        .bus_num = 0,
        .chip_select = 0,
        .max_speed_hz = 25000000,
        .modalias = "m25p80",
        .platform_data = &rbhapx_spi_flash_data,
    }, {
        .bus_num = 0, /* no nothing */
        .chip_select = 1, 
        .max_speed_hz = 2000000,
        .modalias = "spidev",
    }, {
        .bus_num = 0, /* our PoE v3 controller */
        .chip_select = 2,
        .max_speed_hz = 2000000,
        .modalias = "spidev",

Thank you, that's exactly what I needed!

I ordered several RB450G to get my feet wet with OpenWrt on Mikrotik hardware. If all goes well I will try out some PowerBox Pro devices after that. They have much better price/performance as long as I can live with the miniscule 16MB of flash.

In a month there will be an RB3011UiAS-RM support and then RB450GX4.
