USB Host/OTG for Maemo
Thanks to the guys/gals at Dipartmenta Di Informatica, Università di Torino we now have very easy and fully working USB Host capability for the N800 and N810.
Follow all the install and usage instructions at their website HERE
I’ve found this is 100 times better and more stable than USBControl. You just click on the USB HOST icon and you are in host mode, you can connect, disconnect, connect/disconnect as many times as you want and it will always recognise your external hard drive or usb stick.
