How to turn USB port power on and off in Raspberry PI 4
As far as I read Raspberry Pi and Linux issues on GitHub, it seems that there was a bugfix released for
uhubctl on 2019 July. Patch I'm refering to: mvp/uhubctl@4aae44c. It should be merged to master. So...
Another thing to have in mind, it seems that RRi 4B hardware only supports "ganged power switching", which means... that You can only turn on and off ALL the USB ports. Not every single one in particular.
Yes, uhubctl supports RPi4B, I have recently added support for it - you need to use uhubctl version 2.4.0 or later (or build it from master branch). It is also necessary to update USB firmware using
sudo rpi-eeprom-update to make power switching actually work.
Note that you are missing out by using sysfs method to turn USB off on RPi3B+ - using uhubctl you can control either all 4 ports, or 2 of them independently. RPi4B only supports turning off all ports at once.
