    I timed charging at mid-night. Just wondering if at the same time system software upgrade happens..Will this cause any problem?

    It'll explode and end up on media outlets.

    Shush.

    Not a problem. I usually have my X plugged in and charging when I choose to start an upgrade. Charging may stop at some points, but it will resume when the upload is done.

    No. I doubt it'll cause any major issues.

    Besides, software upgrades usually happen with your consent. When Lord Elon blesses you with an update, a notification pops up asking when you want to install it. Worst case, it'll probably stop charging during the process but I haven't tried it.

    all of my updates have been done while I'm charging. nothing bad will happen. Various car systems will shut off and on during the update. what's the concern, exactly?

    Computers have routines and subroutines that are built for multitasking, believe it or not. ;)

    Charging stops while the upgrade is in progress.
