I think the underlying problem is that people expect USB to work and we don't make it clear to them that it does not work yet on all targets. I think the best solution to this problem would be to display a warning whenever a user installs a build that does not have USB support that reminds them of that and links to the manual's dual boot section. I don't see that it really matters if the user has to manually turn off the player and then plug in USB, or if they have to manually turn off the player, hold left, and then insert USB. If we've informed the user about the limitations of the build they're installing, the end result will be the same. If we haven't, we're still depending on them to either figure it out themselves.
If you dislike how mkamsboot works and want to change ti, thats fine, but I don't see that changing it will solve the underlying issue, nor help users of future ports lacking USB support.
