    374 == HW22: FLASH geometry layout change
    375 Issue:
    376  * End of Life of the 2GiB NAND FLASH device used on Ventana GW5xx4 board models (and customer specials) has caused a change to a different FLASH device that has a differing geometry (page size, block size) and ECC strength. These changes can cause a code change in firmware (bootloader and ubi image) as well as an update to the Gateworks {{{jtag_usbv4}}} JTAG programming software.
    377 
    378 Work-around:
    379  * Use the Gateworks 2015.04 Bootloader with [https://github.com/Gateworks/u-boot-imx6/commit/a8572c2d12714a29113dbc90cc12e5fbef387bc7 a85742c] or the Gateworks 2017.05 Bootloader branch or newer
    380  * Use the latest {{{jtag_usbv4}}} (v4.1) programming software
    381  * Use and create FLASH ubi images that were created with the 'normal' FLASH geometry ( 2K block size and a max-leb-count of 16384): see [wiki:linux/ubi#flashgeometry here for details]
     374== HW22: EOL Micron 2GiB NAND FLASH replaced with Cypress 2GiB NAND FLASH (geometry and performance change)
     375Issue:
     376 * End of Life of the Micron 2GiB NAND FLASH device used on Ventana GW5xx4 board models (and customer specials) has caused a change to a different FLASH device that has a differing geometry (page size, block size), ECC strength, and performance. These changes can cause a code change in firmware (bootloader and ubi image) as well as an update to the Gateworks {{{jtag_usbv4}}} JTAG programming software.
     377
     378Work-around:
     379 * To support the ECC change:
     380  - Use the Gateworks 2015.04 Bootloader with [https://github.com/Gateworks/u-boot-imx6/commit/a8572c2d12714a29113dbc90cc12e5fbef387bc7 a85742c] or the Gateworks 2017.05 Bootloader branch or newer
     381  - Use the latest {{{jtag_usbv4}}} (v4.1) programming software
     382 * To support the FLASH geometry change:
     383  - Use and create FLASH ubi images that were created with the 'normal' FLASH geometry (2K block size and a max-leb-count of 16384): see [wiki:linux/ubi#flashgeometry here for details]
     384 * To support the performance change:
     385  - Use the Gateworks 2017.05 Bootloader with [https://github.com/Gateworks/linux-imx6/commit/f3fbc0ec02a04ed1eb7bdb7f6ba6b65eb86a1ea9 f3fbc0e] for best performance (supports new Flash in EDO mode 4)
     386  - Use the Gateworks 4.20 kernel for best Linux performance (supports new Flash in EDO mode 4)
     387  - Use the Gateworks 4.4 OpenWrt kernel with [https://github.com/Gateworks/openwrt/commit/1937a7cbc834de3dc249d8f0dc7f6390da1c9716 1937a7c] (supports new Flash in EDO mode 4)
     388  - Use the latest Gateworks 4.20 and OpenWrt 16.02 bootscripts which enable UBI fastmap support (for decreased boot time).
    382389 * To identify the model number and revision, review this [wiki:modelserialnumber#ModelNumber wiki page]

     405== HW23: EOL ADV7180 Analog Video Decoder replaced with ADV7280A
     406Issue:
     407 * End of Life of the ADV7180 Analog video decoder device used on Ventana GW51xx, GW52xx, GW53xx, GW54xx, GW553x board models (and customer specials) has caused a change to an ADV7280A. While the ADV7280A has the same features as the ADV7180 it requires driver support.
     408
     409Work-around:
     410 * Use the Gateworks 2017.05 Bootloader with [https://github.com/Gateworks/u-boot-imx6/commit/348a052e0c7d00dead5439de7d6ba6a579b5b42e 348a052 (GW53xx)], [https://github.com/Gateworks/u-boot-imx6/commit/16ccf17599ae72643eba26cba056e1952c737c42 16ccf17 (GW53xx)],[https://github.com/Gateworks/u-boot-imx6/commit/97bb78bc0d7134d2b98e462c9e148f52c524104f 97bb78b (GW54xx)]
     411 * Use the Gateworks 3.14 kernel with [https://github.com/Gateworks/linux-imx6/commit/bc4e236209a80c9578246fb173f66566748bc3e8 bc42236]
     412 * Use the Gateworks 4.20 kernel or greater with [TODO]

     420== HW24: EOL Wi2Wi W2SG0008i GPS receiver replaced with ublox ZOE-M8Q GPS receiver
     421Issue:
     422 * End of Life of the Wi2Wi GPS receiver used on Ventana GW51xx, GW52xx, GW53xx, GW54xx, GW553x board models (and customer specials) has caused a change to the ublox ZOE-M8Q GPS receiver. While both GPS receivers output NMEA 0183 messages at 1Hz the W2SG0008i GPS came up at 4800baud and the ZOE-M8Q comes up at 9600baud.
     423
     424Work-around:
     425 * Make sure your software can auto-baud and is compatible with the NMEA sentences of the ZOE-M8Q
     426 * If your hardware makes use of the GPS PPS signal routed to miniPCIe sockets make sure your hardware is compatible with a 3.3V TTL signal.
     427
     428Affected Products that have moved from the Wi2Wi W2SG0008i to ublox ZOE-M8Q:
     429 * GW53xx-G+

     433== HW25: EOL Marvell 88E1510 RGMII phy replaced with TI DP83867 phy
     434Issue:
     435 * End of Life of the Marvell 88E1510 RGMII phy used on Ventana GW51xx, GW52xx, GW53xx, GW54xx board models (and customer specials) attached the the IMX6 FEC internal MAC has caused a change to the TI DP83867 phy.
     436
     437Work-around:
     438 * Use the Gateworks 2017.05 Bootloader with [https://github.com/Gateworks/u-boot-imx6/commit/f904fbd2cc5b33ed6f8f2583d0b711d770858996 f904fbd].

     446== HW26: EOL Marvell 88E8057 GbE MAC/PHY replaced with Intel I210 GbE MAC/PHY
     447Issue:
     448 * End of Life of the Marvell 88E8057 GbE MAC/PHY used on Ventana GW54xx and GW53xx as the eth1 GbE has caused a change to the Intel I210 GbE MAC/PHY.
     449
     450Work-around:
     451 * Make sure the kernel has support for the igb driver.
