     227== Firmware Version ==
     228The Boot Firmware is comprised of several components that each have their own revision control (bdk, atf, u-boot, dts) and as such there are multiple version details to keep track of.

     230To aid this the Newport BSP Makefile which builds the boot firmware creates a file called {{{version}}} within the FAT12 filesystem. You can mount this filesystem within Linux and examine the contents. For example:
     231{{{#!bash
     232root@OpenWrt:/# mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt
     233root@OpenWrt:/# cat /mnt/version
