Sadly I don't agree with your assessment, if you are suggesting that no one would try it (is hard to figure out which way your statement should be taken). If such a person posted on the Raspberry Pi forums they would quickly be debunked. However, I still bet someone would try it before a moderator got to them. Many (most ?) people really do not have a clue about computers. They are magic black boxes that do stuff. Admittedly the bar is raised somewhat by the Pi not being a mainstream computer, but I am amazed by what people are willing to blindly run/tryejolson wrote: ↑Mon Sep 02, 2019 4:36 pmIf a sociable engineer posting for the first time claimed to have created a new EEPROM image that supported USB boot and gave a link here, how many people do you think would try it out? What if some virtual trolls posted that it actually worked and did indeed support USB boot?
There are unfortunately also lots of other venues to put up such crap and drive searches to.
