Deprecated Hardware

This hardware was supported earlier but is no longer supported. If you downloaded an earlier image and are running FreedomBox on this hardware, you will keep getting software updates. You can stay secure and up-to-date. However, no new images will be provided for this hardware. It is recommended that you migrate to newer, supported hardware using backup and restore.

DreamPlug is the hardware for which FreedomBox has been originally targeted. FreedomBox images are built and tested for it. For using this device as FreedomBox, a USB WiFi device that does not require non-free firmware is recommended.
