To enter USB Host Mode, shut down your phone and then press power+camera+volume-down for about 10 sec. The phone doesn't need to be connected to a pc.

guys look at the first picture.. that's a bricked bootloader.. now look at the second.. that's a halfbricked bootloader.. what's the difference you ask? the difference is that on the halfbricked you can enter usb host mode.. how did i fix it? i send a cab that contained an update to bootloader v5.12 (mine was 4.65) and it worked! now i can try the method in the first post

7 Pro and Arrive use the "GOLDIMG.nbh"

There is the file for the Arrive CDMA (GOLD_C). I don't know if this is the same for the GSM 7 Pro (GOLD).

Sure, these sort of cables are at least available in most local amazon stores at well. I bought them from germany.
