Don't give up so fast, theAndroidOSX "TRINITY 2.5 Rom" & Chad's "Anthrax kernel" together enable the OTG usb host feature. Chad has confirmed it's working !!

I'm wondering if the USB device would need to be self powered or if the Evo 3D would provide power through the port.

B-series was a work in progress (worked for some, but not others)

This is a feature that I am really excited about and would like to get working. Does anyone know of any videos of someone using the USB Host mode on an EVO 3D?

Is there a ROM that already has the proper kernel baked in that you guys can recommend?

For those that have USB host working - does it allow you to connect an NTFS formatted drive for files above 4GB?

USB Host and a home screen with landscape mode are two things I'd really want - though I assume the second feature is limited to the non-Sense roms.

I think you need to use one of Chad Goodman's kernels. Last I knew of, it was hit or miss. He is still working on the development of this, in his newer releases. But I think the trinity ROM by androidosx had this working for some.

The only landscape sense Rom I know of right now, is The Express port that's in beta. Platypus is the Dev working on it. It's a nice port, but the bugs are still being worked out of course. If you use an alternative launcher, you can have landscape anytime you want.

would a powered usb hub work? so we could use a mouse, keyboard and maybe an HDD at the same time?

Would the EVO3D draw power from the hub?
