I've updated <a href="http://maemo.org/maemowiki/HowTo_SwitchToHostMode">http://maemo.org/maemowiki/HowTo_SwitchToHostMode</a> with this<br>information.<br><br>It would be nice if someone confirmed the "might work" part.
<br><br>(Can I buy a USB hub that provides power to the 770? I'm not all that<br>proficient with soldering irons.)</blockquote><div><br>Some hubs will inject power into the socket that you normally plug into your computer (the square shaped one). If you get a female-to-female converter, you can use standard cables (the one that came with your 770 plus the one that you would normally ue to plug the hub into the computer) and a powered hub to do what you want without soldering. I have done so in the past. I would imagine that this doesn't work with all powered hubs. The only way I discovered that my hub back-feeds power was that it kept the fan running on my graphics card even when my system was powered off and unplugged!
<br><br>I give no guarantees as to how healthy this is for your hub or 770 though.<br><br>I will try to give your modified instructions a spin when I get a chance. Thanks for updating them.<br><br>/Mike<br></div></div>
