Does the Librem key use usb_storage module?

I am running PureOS on a Librem mini with a Librem Key. Does anyone know if the Librem Key uses usb_storage kernel module? I would like to blacklist that module but I wanted to triple check here.

Thanks in advance!

Not sure, but you may find out more information in its firmware’s repository.

The comments made previously apply: make sure that you have a backup and make sure that you have a bootable USB flash drive. In case it all goes pear-shaped.

Assuming that you are using Pureboot, you should be able to bypass a failure to boot with integrity if you manage to break the Librem Key.


It seems not to use usb_storage! I was able to blacklist that module and reboot without any issue. Thanks so much all for weighing in!
