I just tried your suggestion.
So now, when plugging the cable it enters into a loop where it starts to
charge (the yellow led slowly blinks), the USB mass storage mode is
entered, than after 5 seconds the led stops blinking, 2 seconds after
that it powers completely off for 1 second.
Rinse and repeat.

Is there a mean to ask for charge without even entering the mass-storage
mode ?
