Default USB Host does nothing? :(

So my USB host wire came today! i plugged in my flash drive and nothing... No messages no LED lights... nothing.... I tried plugging in a keyboard and nothing happen either... I am using calkulins e4gt 2.9. I tried looking in the ROM's thread with the search feature I found someone asking the same question but no replies...
Does anyone have any ideas?

USB host support has not been included in any ROMs/kernels as of today. hopefully some devs start to take an interest (like jamcar, who is trying to get it working on his DARKSTAR rom) but DO NOT pester the devs for this tho, if you ask once and it goes ignored, leave it.

if by stock firmware you mean Android 2.3.x i dont believe so - it was only working with the initial stock firmware for the int'l version at release then for whatever reason Samsung decided to disable the feature and every update after that had it disabled. but from conversing with jamcar:

it seems much more likely that with all the buzz and releases/tune ups for ics roms, some devs might add the necessary drivers/etc to wake it up

I thought usb host would have to be enabled by the kernel not just the rom. Such as how it works on the tmobile version by flashing a custom recovery kernel. Darkstar rom might support it, but it has to be done in the kernel also, but I may be wrong.
