Hi al, i made a little breakout board to test the USB pads with pogo pins, it works well, i'm able to upload sketches without any issues.

Is there a test i should do to make sure that USB is working as intended over those pads? i had read that the 4.0 doesn't have pads for USB because of concerns with the high speed usb pads being exposed but again in my test it worked great.
