Hi all<br><br>I actually sent out an email last night asking a similar question:<br><br><span style="font-style: italic;">Hi everyone, I've read a number of emails and forum posts that talk
about using the usb to connect peripherals. I used the flasher to
enable R&D mode and USB host mode and there are no errors. But
when I reboot and connect a keyboard through my power booster I made,
it still thinks it is just connected to a computer. Does the USB only
work on the 770 or do I need to do something to the kernel to get it
working or do I need to do anything else to get it working. </span><br style="font-style: italic;"><br style="font-style: italic;"><span style="font-style: italic;">I have a number of things I want to use the USB port for, I
just want to get the keyboard working so I know the port is working. I
am hoping to get my USB GPS working with one of the mapping programs
and I also want to use it to interface with a real time system I've
made that would connect through a USB to serial adapter. But first I
just want to get a keyboard working to get through the biggest road
block I see. </span><br style="font-style: italic;"><br style="font-style: italic;"><span style="font-style: italic;">Thank you for any help. If this has been discussed before I would appreciate anyone who can point me to the discussion.
<br><br></span>I spent most of yesterday trying to get
just a keyboard working after building a power injector. <span style="font-style: italic;"></span>So to the original question yes I have played with it on the n800 but I had no luck. I really hope we can figure this out. I think it will add a number of opportunities to the device.
