mprime can do k*b^n+c
How feasible would it be, in principle, to adapt gpuOwL to be more flexible? Wagstaff in particular: (2^p+1)/3

Working mod 2^p+1 is almost as easy as 2^p1. Then a final division by 3 to get mod (2^p+1)/3. E.g: Code:
p=127;Mod(3,2^p+1)^2^p Mod(9, 170141183460469231731687303715884105729)

Probably type4 would also be applicable to Wagstaff? Or perhaps type2, which is similar to type4 except using N−1 instead of N+1. Code:
2: SPRP variant, N is PRP if a^((N1)/2) = +/1 mod N 4: SPRP variant. N is PRP if a^((N+1)/2) = +/a mod N

Like I mentioned earlier, the Wagstaff PRP calculation for type 5 is 3^(2^p) mod (2^p + 1) whereas for Mersenne (where type 1 and type 5 are the same thing), it's 3^(2^p − 2) mod (2^p − 1). I don't know if there is a similarly simple modification for type 4 or type 2 residues. Since gpuOwL is a GitHub project, theoretically someone else could make the modification, possibly even forking from an earlier version that still used Mersenne type 1 residues.

Of course. He volunteers his time, according to his talents and interests, like many others. None of us has a claim on him or each other, or authority to select one path versus another for him. To his credit, he sometimes accepts or asks for input from the user community. And if we users summarize outstanding issues or new desires, it can make him more efficient. Winwin.

There are other ways to do Wagstaff, to ~920M, though maybe not as high a p as you'd like to go to if you're thinking of taking the new Mersenne conjecture testing further. There are also other ways to do p1 factoring on Mersennes, although not above ~432.5M in CUDAPm1 in practice, or ~920M in mprime/prime95, and not on OpenCl at all.

In the Mersenne case, we want a cyclic convolution. The simple weighting that is done before/after the FFT achieves that. For the "mod 2^p+1", we want a negacyclic convolution. Can this be achieved through a similar weighting (with different weights)? Or is something more involved needed? To add a bit more detail: in the mersenne case, the weights are real. IF for 2^p+1 we need weighting with complex weights, this changes the implementation significantly because the FFT input is not real anymore.

You also need to apply complex rootsofminusone to "trick" the FFT into doing a negacyclic convolution instead of a cyclic convolution. You don't need any extra FFT memory, but you do need a modified first pass that takes real inputs and produces weighted complex FFT'ed outputs. Not easy, but not hard either. Next you need a new simpler second pass that scraps all the Hermetian symmetry computations before the pointwise squaring.

Forked the Wagstaff discussion into a separate thread (copy  original posts are still there).
