USB thumb drive confirmed working
Needed to make a boot.img change, however. I'm going to write up a HOWTO, shortly.

USB thumb drives may not work as there's no mount point - I might try to create a custom boot.img and test that out, if I have time.

This is the cable I have: http://cgi.ebay.com/Micro-USB-Host-C...item3a640778bb

Can't even get a mouse to work with BlueTooth, so that's probably why a USB mouse doesn't work...

USB thumb drive instructions (with altered boot.img link)
Dropped the instructions here: http://www.slatedroid.com/index.php?...s-on-the-xoom/

I have this running on my Xoom right now - thumb drive can see files and play content (like music and video).

That eBay guy is going to wonder why the sudden surge of cable orders, soon.

It's coming from Hong Kong, but I think I got mine in less than 2 weeks - this was back in November. I had ordered this cable with an Archos 32 in mind, but I screwed up the first time and got the wrong cable. I'm happy to report that it's finally getting some use.

Hey roebeet, Quick question:

Does this allow you to transfer or write files to the USB drive as well? Or will we have to wait for honeycomb to support sd cards to do this?

Can files be written onto the thumb drive or moved there using a file explorer?

Just wondering!

It doesn't look like it's mounted read-only so I'd say yes.
