Does anyone have any examples of peripheral devices that can have their firmware upgraded by dropping a new firmware file onto a mounted volume? e.g. insert device, new disk appears, firmware file is copied over, then the firmware update completes?
Could anyone with a device that supports firmware upgrade using bulk storage please fill in my 2 minute questionnaire? I’m trying to create a UF2-compatible plugin to fwupd and need data to make sure it’s suitable for all vendors and devices. The current pull request is here, but I have no idea if it is suitable yet. Thanks!

3d printers based on some microcontrollers use this technique ! Stm32-based mostly.
Can you do the form please? That would be super useful, thanks!
