roku package bin file supported compression methods

hi, out of gzip, zstd and brotli which compressor is supported on all roku devices ? We have been using gzip for several years in production. Recently checked brotli and it saved us over 3 MB in bin file size. However in subsequent device coverage it was found that brotli worked on almost all but 4800x devices where sideload of a brotli bin file fails on the lines of unzip failed.. zstd is also good and it reduced around 1.5 MB and we can live with that for now but now since brotli failed on 4800x I just wanted to understand what exactly is supported and on which device.. Would replacing gzip by zstd in production be a safe choice ?
