Any idea if this will work on the new n900 ??
usbcontrol gives you easy to use access to the powerful host mode of the n810 and n800. Run usbcontrol, switch to host mode and attach any keyboard or usb drive to your device. Keyboards don't need extra power, usb drives usually do.
Thought this was a great ap and then during a reflash of my 810 I've lost the ability to open it, it's in the installed files (Application Manager) but not in my Personal menu or main menu. How can I re-introduce the icon? I've tried un-installing / re-installing. Thanks
This no longer seems to work for quite a few people, especially N810 users. It was working for me for a while, but just recently stopped (won't even load/start), and I've uninstalled/reinstalled/rebooted, etc. I've just moved on to usb-otg-plugin. Sorry, I used to consider this a must-have app, but people have been having problems with this for a while now with no solutions posted.
The program is great, the only problem is that I don´t get it to understand External Hard Drive. Is it possible to get it to understand a 500Gb External Hard Drive. Sou that I just the External Hard Drive on power source to power it?
This looks awesome, I am yet to get my n810 but excited to play and experiment. One thing that I have been wondering about and this host usb just added fuel is if its possible to attach a usb cellular modem and then with some nify software connect to the internet anywhere! - anybody know if this is possible and or in dev?
Install USB Control, buy a F-F USB adaptor which costs about four eurs, and you can plug in a whole range of USB accessories into your tablet including keyboards and flash drives. You can even plug in an HDD apparently, as long as it's got its own power supply.
As well as giving us immediate access to accessories, it means developers can start thinking in terms of supporting mice and other exotic devices on the tablet.
One last point: you can use PS/2 keyboards as well, by buying an equally cheap PS/2-USB adaptor. You don't even need an active adaptor, the passive kind works fine, and they cost almost nothing.
Great tool. The only problem I've had is an error message when I connect a keyboard (standard Logitech UltraX Media), something about it being unable to connect to storage device because of missing file system. And every time I connect the keyboard I have to go into Control Panel -> Bluetooth keyboard to get the norwegian layout.
