Can gl.inet please provide a list of the models that are going to be declared as EOL?
I have many Mangos, Slates, Cretas, … that I am using, and I would like to know what their support-status will be regarding firmware & security updates. I alswo wonder which ones will get the 4.x firmware to use (since 4.x solves a bunch of old GUI-issues, like Mulvad-configuration etc).
Maybe @alzhao you have this information?
Thanks in advance.
PS: and what to do with EOL-devices? Are they just food for the piling up world-garbage-tower?
If there are stock OpenWRT-builds available, you could switch to that and keep it secure that way. So trashing them might not be needed in that case. I am also interested if discontinued devices will still get GL.iNet firmware builds.
@alzhal: Per this previous post, your company used to commit to 2 years of support after EOL notice. Have you changed this to only committing to 1 year, as I’m not sure what exactly you mean by: The firmware support will go at least for one more year.
Can you please comment on which products are going to get 4.x, and which products are going to be left to die? I own several products that have been or it looks like they will be EOL this year, and I would really like know if they will get 4.x.
@panpan: Looking at the memory and storage specifications for both the original Slate (AR750s) and the Slate Plus (A1300), I noticed that the new model has twice the RAM memory, the same amount of NAND Flash, but only 1/4 the amount of NOR Flash. Is this correct? With only 4MB of NOR Flash I do not think it will be possible to load OpenWRT into NOR, so we really will only have NAND Flash to work with.
