What do you mean small flash size?
It has 8MB flash like 1043ND, which is more than enough for DD-WRT. Most of the routers DD-WRT supports have 8MBs of Flash memory.
I don't get the dual-core CPU requirement either. 400MHz Atheros on 1043 had cap around 100mbps.
So Qualcomm@775MHz isn't enough to put out full speeds? Being 150mbps a the moment.
I can see that it isn't supported at the moment, it's a fairly new router. I simply asked will DD-WRT support Archer 6 or not.
Asked politely, no one responded with "yes or no" for three days and as I needed a router ASAP I bought Archer 6. I don't get why you would NOT support it since it's very similar to Archer C5 and I couldn't find that one the market.
Also, no one helped with recovering 1043ND from a bad flash, I scoured your forums, tried TFTP but since the reset button doesn't respond/work with the latest build I can throw it in the trash. I don't even think it's bricked. I have internet connection over it.

since my 1043ND v1.x was capped around 100mpbs with DD-WRT flashed because of 400MHz CPU and software NAT
What firmare it runs? as far as i know, hardware-accelerated NAT works on newer builds for 1043 v1, it perform around 800-900mbps. But, before firmware update, read this thread first https://forum.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=311642
maybe r36006 will be safest version to flash (confirmed to work by 2 people on page 8 ).
