Hello Piotr,

Yes, it is possible. I've performed such operation using fw_recovery
command from u-boot prompt.

However, looking at factory logs, reserved space is used somehow by
vendor firmware in a way that I wasn't able to investigate. My
WNDR4300 (bought used) had this whole area erased. I do not know if
that was default setup or deliberate action of previous owner. Vendor
firmware does not reflash that partition at all.
