Is the USB-C power port PD compatible? If so, i would need to carry one fewer power source.
Yes it can be powered by standard PD power adapters.
Does the Opal feature any technical advantages over Beryl? I understand that it is way cheaper than the Beryl, but is it better in doing anything than the Beryl?
SFT1200 comes with 128M Nand flash, compared with MT1300’s 32MB Nor flash.
And this is relevant for what use cases?
Will adguard be available for Opal with the extra nand flash?
There are router comparisons in this link:
GL-MT1300 has more RAM, USB 3.0 and faster VPN.
Compared to small Nor flash, bigger Nand flash can install more software packages, hold more vpn profiles and write much faster.
… sigh … so now I have 5 GL-iNet devices
Did I read it right that Opal is on the 18.06 branch of OpenWRT?
From the Q&A, presumably because of the sunflower chip:
The OpenWrt version of SFT1200 is 1806 and it is NOT Fully open source.
By GL Technologies
We hate to have so many models.
Chipset shortage …
Ah, it’s OK- all mine work, but at such a cheap price I had to I also bought a Beryl as it was on sale- that one, I have a use-case for though.
Hi, is there a way to update this model’s Openwrt to 21.02? or are you releasing a firmware soon?because the Beryl does support 21.02 per release notes
SFT1200 still does not update to 21.02 according to the info I have.
aw… can it not update at least to 19.07?
Any news though that it will be updated?
