Yes, this response is 5 years late, but I am too curious about some features like the switches, battery, warm / cold buttons. These features appear here on the original xbox one, as well as the one s, and even the one x. So they are absolutely used for something!
Updating the console without the optical drive in place will brick the console? Are we certain about this? I know that the motherboard and optical drive board are paired but didn't think that the console would brick if updated without the drive plugged in. Thanks for the help - Richard
