Hi. I'm wondering about this because I'll be trying to repair my switch's card reader, but in the case where I can't, Is it possible to use a usb card reader to boot CFW with?

I found this usb-c stick card reader that also has a usb-a end,
and am wondering if it can maybe somehow be used at the same as the card to be able to send payloads as well as use micro-sd cards.

Here's a pic of one:

Bullshit

I use "type c - usb - SD card reader 3 in 1"
Install game and launch homebrew

All via charging port

They're meaning can you use the charging port and an sd reader instead of the sd card slot to load the files that need to be on the sd, not to send a payload or install games

Who wants to boot the cfw through a dongle like this? That's not very convenient.
Didn't read the original post, huh?

To make it work, the initial fusee payload that you push through USB would have to have a driver to read necessary files from the card reader, I don't know if a payload is big enough for that. Also doesn't seem that likely that someone will spend the time developing it, when the obvious answer is to get the main SD reader fixed.

My sd card slot doesn't work.
I'm going to try to fix it I ordered some parts, but it was to know in case.
