Just found the tag (x38), where questions mostly refer to either (x78) or (x141).


  1. remove the from those questions already tagged
  2. merge into
  3. make a synonym to

Though there's one more thing to consider: may be ambiguous, as it could as well refer to (x6). How do we deal with ambiguous tags in general, and especially in this case?

EDIT: as per suggestion from GAThrawn (to check What's the intended purpose of the 'radio' tag?), those questions relating to radio-firmware and radio-firmware itself could be merged into in this process.


could relate not just to the system firmware, but - as you already noted - also the radio/wifi/camera/etc. firmware. That prevents me from liking the idea. In the past, if we had an ambiguous tag we specialized the name(s). I would preferably blacklist and introduce or .

  • And alias the new tag with rom -- as system-firmware/device-firmware would refer to that?

  • Correct, device-firmware == rom

  • I agree with this. Firmware is not at all the same as ROM.

  • Many recommendations, but nothing happened :) Might I rise the question again: merge 'firmware' (x57) to 'radio-firmware' (x10) and synonymize? (Optionally clean-up/retag questions not related to radio-firmware first; if this path is agreed upon, I volunteer to take over that task)
