Both Broadcom bcm63xx - so you won't get any DSL out of it. I do have
a DGND3700v1 here, and I plan to add support to it soonish (not sure
if it make it to BB). It won't include nand flash support. Adding
support for v2 or D6200 will be a bit less useful, as both use bcm6362
and the internal wifi for 2.4GHz, which is currently completely
unsupported. And in case of D6200, 11AC wifi for 5 GHz, so no support
there either.
