USB mode button 0.2

Dec 01, 2008 by Joseph Reeves

[EDIT: Updated to 0.3]

Patrick Beck did some great looking hardware hacking to add a USB powered light to the side of his FreeRunner. He was using my USB mode button to turn it on and off and pointed out some improvements that could be made. I've packaged up 0.2:

Changes:

Application type changed to "Office" so that it appears in Illume.

Additions:

"ifconfig usb0 up" added to ensure the phone works as it should do in device mode. A stupid omission on my part (the script I've been using for months had this...)
The blue power LED is now turned on with host mode, allowing you to easily see what mode you're in.

For a more feature filled USB application, check out Mark D. Montgomery II's USB mode GUI.



Comments:
