USB host mode

100 posts in this topic

Just noticed that its enabled in the experimental host for CM7:

Experimental kernel update 21st March 2011:

Features:

USB OTG... (anyone has the actual adapter for USB otg....?) this part is untested....

I've waited for this a long time, tried to compile my own kernel to get it working, and now I have wasted 5 days because I didn't read this :D

-->testing

Any chance this could be done to the LG P500/Optimus One?

The chipset is the same, not sure if it can provide power to USB in OTG mode, but that would not be a very big issue.

Also, when connecting the power supply it says something about "USB OTG going into low power mode" in dmesg.

Have tried with a hacked OTG cable and external power supply for the USB hub, but it behaves just like connecting a charger.

I'm trying to figure out if the Japanese Jellyfish ROM has support for USB OTG. Does anyone know anything about that?

All I'm trying to do is to connect my digital camera do my phone in order to push some photos to the phone when I'm not near a PC.

Just to let everyone know, it has been announced that Android 3.1 will contain USB Host mode.

Well, my OTG-compatible cable has arrived from China, but I'm now rather wedded to 2.2 and Sven's Blade stuff was for 2.1 ... :P

Where did you purchase your cable, and what is the exact model?

Just search for 'micro usb host' on Ibay and set it to price + shipping lowest first.

First result will do I guess. You just need a male micro usb to a female regular usb. Do not buy the usb host adapters for the nokia N8, this micro usb male is different(it's rectangular, the corners won't fit on our blade's regular micro usb female port) from the other micro usb male connectors.

*Praying for USB-host on CM7*

Could you please attach a link to the cable you bought?

Anyone any idea what exactly has to be done to enable/disable USB host mode?

Sorry, I can't advertise, just search as I said above your post.

any thoughts of integrating that into cm7? It uses the same kernel...

Hi guys I'm mostly from ZTE Racer forum. I stumbled upon this topic. Is it possible to port Sven's work to CM7 Racer ROMs, since Blade and Racer have almost the same hardware, same chipset?

Is the ICS port on the Blade likely to include USB host mode? Is the hardward capable? It's something I'd really like to see. It would be really handy to backup proper camera photos into the blade and potentially upload them to the web.

With ICS it's the same as with Gingerbread, if the kernel supports it the OS above will have no problem. But ask that again in a month or two, when ICS is running with hw-acc, stable RIL, and a camera.

The hardware is definitely capable (as shown by the fact it can work with eclair).

If you want to add it to gingerbread then just look at my kernel configuration for the v9 and at the v9 repo. Haven't tried it on ics yet.

Thanks for the info, but I think that messing with kernels is beyond my level of expertise! I'm on one of the newer CM7 custom builds and it works fine, so I will resist tinkering until a stable ICS ROM comes along.

Does not work for me, with a usb-stick it lists a usb-hub (1d6b) under lsusb, which is the Blade itself propably, with a mouse it lists nothing. Both the stick and the mouse glow and get proper power.

Jeez, don't even bother trying it. I told them clearly it wasn't done yet and that I gotta get back to it later. Pengeren was kinda hyper agile or something :-)

Anyway, thanks for testing :rolleyes:
