Will the XO-4 need nonfree firmware

Previous models of the XO have needed nonfree firmware programs which
were not buried inside peripherals, but rather were installed as part
of the operating system and had to be copied by it into the peripherals.
Because of this, when I used the original XO, I could not use its
network interface.

Will the XO-4 need any of these?  If not, the FSF might be able to
endorse it.
