Default Possible ZuneHD exploit?

I don't know if this bug can be used as an exploit or not, but here it is.

If you open up the web browser while not connected to a network, it will open up the little slide-up thingy and try to connect to a network. If you plug the Zune in to have the software put it in "Connected" mode or plug it into a 360, it will connect, but will only go back to the home screen, letting you still use the device . . . to an extent. Trying to open an app will put the Zune UI in the connected mode, but I don't know if anything else will do this.

Didn't see this posted anywhere else, and I thought it might help someone, so here it is!

Probably glitch, but it might help someone, somewhere.

If you plug your Zune into an internet enabled computer and close out of the software you can use the internet while it's charging.

That is a nice feature, but not what I'm talking about.

Ah. Then I don't see how we can take advantage of what you're talking about.

Someone might be able to, somehow, which is why I posted it. The only way (ATM) I can contribute to the ZuneHD hacking scene is to document bugs and glitches that may have the off chance of being exploitable.

Nice find. Here are some things I noticed when doing this:

You can't deploy XNA apps.
Pressing the media button does nothing.
You can't listen to music and radio or watch videos, although I did get it to play a video once.
opening the internet will also make it go back to connect mode

So basically you can scroll the menu up and down, and change your settings, but if you do anything else it goes to the connected screen
