So, to summarise: zero, zeroW(H), A, and A+ without an SD card all appear in lsusb on the USB host as "ID 0a5c:2763 Broadcom Corp." 3A+ without an SD card appears in lsusb on the USB host as "0a5c:2764 Broadcom Corp." 4B via USB C without an SD card does not appear but may appear as "0a5c:2711 Broad...

Re: Can anyone help by providing lsusb output

@hippy and @neilgl: I think the 4B behaviour is because the boot firmware now disables the SoC's built in USB controller for power saving reasons so there's nothing to detect. Again useful to have that confirmed. Pi 4B by default does not load an otg USB host driver in the base device tree. By impl...

Re: Can anyone help by providing lsusb output

On the boot from USB device/as USB host thing, I'd expect any A model to not show up (or to show briefly then disappear) if they have the OTP bit that enables booting from a USB drive set. Not show up I believe, as that was the initial issue noted; once it sees the USB Host bit set it makes itself ...

Re: g_mass_storage limits

No idea but unless you have a bigger than 2TB uSD card (which I doubt) a sparse file of that size isn't going to be very usefull anyway.

A 2TB sparse file on an 8GB uSD card will only be able to store 8GB.

all you need is a file named "ssh" in /boot and you'll have ssh access.

There are a couple of potential issues but, yes it should work: While I don't have the link, if memory serves one of the power saving changes made for the 4B was to disable that USB controller by default at boot so you may need to mod your config.txt to enable it.
