OK, finally got my OTG cable and USB ethernet. Let's do this!
Tried to follow these instructions:
So to review:
-copy driver (to /system/lib/modules)
-insert module ("insmod /system/lib/modules/*yourdriver*.ko")
-get an IP address (manually, or "/system/bin/dhcpd eth0")
-add DNS (setprop net.dns1 *yourDNSserver*)
Had to troubleshoot why my Touchpad wasn't being seen as a USB mass storage device. DONE
. I'm feeling like a boss.
Windows Explorer didn't see the main system--just the "SD Card". What ever--not big deal. I copied the driver over to the SD Card. Downloaded Astro File Manager to copy the file to /system/lib/modules. Nope. Denied.
No problem! Dropped to terminal and enabled super user. Astro is still a no go. No worries!! I'm a big boy--I'll do this in terminal! Taught myself enough command line jargon to navigate to the file, and copy it to the intended directory. NOPE. Directory is read only.
OK, so I navigate there and try to chmod the directory with u+w. "Bad mode". Research that to learn I have to use the numbers. So I try that (775) and now it tells me it is a read-only file system.
It might not seem like it, but I'm trying. I really am.
Can someone tell me how to get past step one
of this process? Please? What on earth am I doing wrong?
I recently had to do some wizardry on my phone to get openvpn to co-operate, and I suspect that would work here but I don't understand the commands, and fear I'd end up screwing something up.
This was the command:
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
I'm guessing I need to unmount the system so I can work on it and copy the file into that directory? Is that the case? Would the command line be the same, or different?
Anyone else get this to work now that the driver has been posted publicly?
