These kinds of device modifications isn't the topic discussed here.
OpenWrt never accepts device supports that requires any hardware
modifications and supports for modified routers usually stays in
Several ar71xx images works on modified TP-LINK routers because:
1. ar71xx has the ability to auto-detect memory and flash size for
TP-LINK partition table.
2. TP-LINK sells different products inside China and some routers
happens to have a similar board design (except flash/ram) as products
they sells worldwide.>
