I propose that we make some adjustments on the Supported devices page with the release of OpenWrt 21.02.0-rc1. Considering the Increased Hardware Minimum requirements (8/64), that should furthermore help users at making an informed choice when looking at routers and plan ahead.
We could start with something like this (reworked original):
- SoC / target supported by OpenWrt
- Sufficient Flash to accommodate OpenWrt firmware image
- 4MB min (won't be able to install GUI (LuCI))
- 8MB better (will fit GUI and some other applications)
- 16MB or more advised (see 8/64 warning advice about OpenWrt release 21.02.0-rc1)
- Sufficient RAM for stable operation
- 32MB min, 64MB better, 128MB or more advised
Getting rid of the 4/32 and moving the min/better qualitative is also very tempting, and would keep the list shorter. Novice users should be driven further away from 4/32 devices as it is not a walk in the park.
Also the 4/32 warning banner could introduce a note about 8/64. There were discussions that I found about that banner in 2019. We could briefly add a "Point 3":
What are your thoughts on that?
