Hmm interesting, I'm looking for a device with that form factor. Any chance it will get vanilla openwrt support?

same as Asus AX4200, for instance ?

Yes, but I'm hoping this one would not need serial flashing etc. I'm not comfortable with that

I kind of hope this :), on the bright side it has a mediatek soc which is often better supported from what I have seen but I cannot say if it has other hardware what might not be easy to integrate (I'm not a OpenWrt dev).

For those qualcomm variants (flint 1) it seems more difficult to add support since alot of them are very depended on qsdk drivers which is a OpenWrt fork which is really old but builded with the needed drivers, and there are alternatives like OpenWifi too!, but with mediatek I have better feelings, I'm not saying it will be impossible but I think it requires alot of work :slight_smile:

i'm sure it will be supported quickly :slight_smile:
look at how many Filogic firmwares are currently in the snapshot area :
