    Hi everyone,

    what if I will flash tomato (or tomato RAF) ND version on non-supported hardware, i.e. where wl0_corerev is less than 7? Will such router turn into a brick or will it simply have no wireless functionality?

    Thank you.

    It's not possible to say with certainty, but many people have found it bricked their router, so if you have doubts, don't... is the best option. There have been some occasions where people have had success, but it's hard to find their posts in the forum to see what models worked, unfortunately.

    Thank you, Toastman. It's good that I asked rather than tried that:) You probably saved another router that I was about to brick.
