OpenWrt support for Ubiquiti Flex HD

Is there support for Ubiquiti Flex HD planned or already available? I couldn't find more information about this device yet.

It is the same platform as the Nano HD, which has a snapshot build.;a=commit;h=4c8446bf39de99990847eb4bc7744e25835a34f5

I'm not saying that it will work to flash the Nano HD firmware to it, but it seems likely that it would.

So I tried to flash openwrt-21.02.0-rc2-ramips-mt7621-ubnt_unifi-nanohd-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin to the Flex HD as instructed on the commit message, although the ubnt firmware on the device was 5.43.23 (As per, the oldest officially available firmware is 4.0.54 and not 3.9.27). This most likely broke the device, as the LED is now flashing white-blue-off and isn't reachable (the reset button doesn't help). There seems to be some work to do to get the Flex HD supported by OpenWrt as it seems.

Now I have to figure out how to unbrick my Flex HD again :see_no_evil:

Just figured out that White-Blue-Off means tftp mode. I was able to restore the original firmware with atftp --trace --option "timeout 1" --option "mode octet" --put --local-file BZ.mt7621.v4.0.54.10625.190801.0944.bin So I would be able to give it another try once there is support for this device in OpenWrt.
