Hi! I tried mode switching, but it always fails to switch. The USB storage is detached, but the mode switching fails and the product id stays at "1446" and doesn't change to "1506". Here is the script that I am using:

DefaultVendor= 0x12d1  

TargetVendor=  0x12d1


MessageEndpoint= 0x01

Source: .

I found a solution add -I to the command. I hope this helps. So the command would be something like this.

sudo usb_modeswitch -v 0x12d1 -p 0x1446 -V 0x12d1 -P 0x1506 -m 0x01 -M 55534243123456780000000000000011062000000100000000000000000000  -I 

Or you can use a config file and add -I.
