different devices so it means different redboot with different settings/quirks.

no. -m ymodem is to load file into ram from the serial port so you don't
care about the name written here.

try with a kernel and initrd of the same version but there's no
guarantee it'll work. You'll have to take care also about your flash
memory. From the manual it has only 8M, which is different than the
em7210 (32M). Would be bad to brick your nas because you thought that
your nas is same as the em7210.
