    What exactly is dangerous about AP2.0 not writing to USB?

    I don’t know what lie you are referring to. I am not talking about FSD, just sentry mode. The notes never said it records to USB drive did it? It just says record, it never said to a place where you can easily retrieve it (but maybe Tesla has a way). That level of ambiguity may be necessary for the deterrent to function for AP2.0 sentry.

    Agreed. Tesla just needs to be better about having accurate release notes.

    Does recording to /dev/null count?

    Well, I won’t call that best practice...
    Maybe someday.

    It records to nowhere. The release notes say clips are uploaded to the “Tesla cloud”, which is a complete and total fabrication. That is not “ambiguity”, that’s a lie.

    How do you know the clips are not being uploaded? A honest question.

    There was a thread a while back where a member with root access to his car confirmed as much. I have no reason to doubt the veracity of his claims. I think it would be relatively easy to prove the concept doing nothing more than watching uploads over wifi after triggering some events.

    I've done it events triggering and no uploads sufficient for video even when compressed.

    Pre-response to the inevitable “maybe they’re doing it over cellular” retort:

    We’re talking about a company that is currently requiring the CFO to personally sign off on every single page of outgoing expenses. I’m thinking terabytes per day of additional mobile data consumption isn’t consistent with current company priorities.

    The binary that records video on hw2.5 is not present in 2.0 firmwares. It simply cannot record video because the bits to handle video recording aren't there.

    For the past several days, I've had auto high beams and Autopilot not working on my 2.5 2018 Model S P100D. Also TeslaCam has been writing 595-byte files and nothing else.

    Reboots with 2 dials (with and without holding brake) didn't do anything.

    Today, I have an update on the situation: Couldn't reach 3 service centers for days by phone. Mobile did call me back. Told to keep scheduled appointment but they'd push 2019.16.3 firmware.

    The firmware update fixed TeslaCam, auto high beams, and Autopilot issues, probably because the car fully rebooted. Wonder how long till it happens again.

    Anytime I get a new update I do a short (around the block) drive (usually to check out what they said changed), then a 'four touch reboot' followed by another short drive and a 'full' reboot. For the last 4 updates I have done this, I have not seen any odd behavior. Before this 'process' of mine, I too would have random weird things happen (which, when I called the Tesla help line, they would walk me through one or more of the reboot options).

    While a full reboot should happen after the software update, and a 4-touch reboot should do nothing different/more than what happens with a full reboot, I have become superstitious and continue to do this with fingers crossed :eek:

    As they say, YMMV...
