Flashing XR700 firmware to R9000 possible?

Hey Peeps i have a question.  The new XR700 seems to be out and it looks to be a rebadge R9000.  Does anyone know if you could flash XR700 firmware to a R9000.?   Wouldn't mind having Duma OS for gaming..  :)

It is certainly faisible, apparently some could convert an R7800 to an XR500 and back.

Maybe @XVortex can help propose the two "migration" firmwares as he could do it with XR500/R7800

DumaOS is garbade. Seemingly

DumaOS is garbade. Seemingly abandoned. Barely runs. The latest XR700 (.20) release barely runs with half the apps failing to load. Last update was over a year ago.

I wish I hadn't bought it. I will likely be switching routers unless DD-WRT can help me have more control.
