    Has anyone plugged a USB-C cable into a computer and debugged to see if it sends anything to PC or waits?

    Edit: Skip to about 1:30s.

    Safe Mode - it will download and install an update (if there is any).

    You can check it yourself: https://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSetup/USB
    but I think there is nothing intresting, I think this is a "low level" updater or repair that tries to fix the system if you can't boot the normal recovery menu (because broken sysmodules ?)

    Don't care too much, but thought I'd leave my 'finding'. This mode seems to install a previously downloaded System Update. It didn't download on its own for me using this mode, contrary to a post made above. Guess Wifi could have been acting up. Recovery Mode will download and install if System Update is selected though.

    Would I be wrong to assume that having a console that connects to USB would show a lot of hacking potential compared to something like the 3DS that has no USB capabilities. At least not out of the box like the Switch does. Maybe one day we could plug our Switches up to a computer and do such tasks as downgrading, or injecting custom themes, or movies... I M A G I N A T I O N~

    Downgrading certainly not, but Kate's confirmed that computers have access to the NAND over USB in that she's recommended we have a USB A to C cable to back it up before we mod it
