Using CloudFlare's DNS-Over-TLS

Hello my friends. I've been trying to setup a DoT on my device using this official guide from CloudFlare:

Device: TP-Link TD-W8970 V1
Version: OpenWRT 19.07.2

They said to remove dnsmasq and install another package:

opkg update
opkg install unbound odhcpd unbound-control
opkg remove dnsmasq

But those packages are too heavy for my device and I run out of free space, and installation not completed.
Is there any way to use DoT on my device?

do not follow those instructions, just install stubby which acts as a proxy between dnsmasq and cloudflare

Thanks. I just installed stubby, which one of those guides should I follow?

https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/services/dns/stubby

or

https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/services/dns/dot_dnsmasq_stubby

I have not used any of them, but the 1st one looks good.

If I setup this, Can I keep using adblock?

I used to use Dnsmasq+stubby.The 1st guide you post is what I used at that time.

Is there a list of DNS Servers that I can use with stubby?

Please refer to Stubby README that was mentioned in the guide you found.
