Hey sztupy.

I have a question. I want to use xbox 360 controller for windows with wireless receiver with my sgs II. I'm using syiah kernel http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1555259

When I connect it the leds are blinking and it's recognized in your USB host controller under connected usb devicec, however it says S3C USB host driver NOT found. Can I somehow add it? Is iut passible? I'm "fighting" with it since a week and can't find a solution. I don't need extra power, right?

Thanks in advance.

I tried this app in my Xperia Pro (stock everything, 2.34, rooted) and it worked nicely, except for this:

Quote:
mkdir failed for -p, Read-only file system
No such file or directory
I had to manually make the folders I had set in the app to be able to mount anything but, after that, mounting my devices was fine.

Also, the "please wait" message stays there for a long time, but as soon as text appears behind the "please wait" message, if I change the screen orientation, the message disappears and I can use the app.

Finally, my phone detects a couple card readers I have but, I cannot mount them, that is until I connect one (any) USB hub, after that I can mount my card readers.

root is needed or not? in few days I will try flash CM7 or CM9 and then I will try it again
Yes it is, I just did it. To use a hard drive, I had to use external power though. Also, have in mind the card reader issue I mentioned.

That line is for SGS1 users, it won't bother you. The controller should work just fine on SGS2, without external power, and on it's own.

Ok so, it seems the app doesn't really work in the Xperia Pro, at least not by itself. I had the USB STORAGE MANAGER installed the first time I tried Usb Host Controller 0.44, and everything worked according to my previous post. Since I found a nice replacement to USB STORAGE MANAGER, I uninstalled it. I rebooted my phone and, the next time I used Usb Host Controller 0.44, I could see the connected devices but, none of them were mountable.

Since Usb Host Controller 0.44 no longer worked, I installed USB STORAGE MANAGER again and, surprise, Usb Host Controller 0.44 was working fine again!

Is there anything I can do to help figure what's going on, and why is it dependent on USB STORAGE MANAGER (at least in my phone)

You have to create a file in /system/etc/permissions called android.hardware.usb.host.xml with the contents:

Hello,

is it possible to connect usb-to-serial converter with this application and to use it from another application?

Try using a usb hub, for some reason card readers work only when connected to a hub, except for a few ones.
