align_config_to_4mb is a 1007 kB or 2031 KB sized first partition on the eMMC of Alder and Miami models.

It compensates the 17 KB allocated for the GPT to align the subsequent SBL1 partition to 1MB or 2 MB (not 4MB) boundaries.

  • 17 KB + 1007 KB = 1024 KB = 1 MB (Alder)
  • 17 KB + 2031 KB = 2048 KB = 2 MB (Miami)

It doesn't say much if a model is not listed here. It may be a missing supportdata file or just a disabled feature.
