Note 1: Some USB devices may need additional power, if so, get a Y cable from eBay so you can power a USB device using a external USB power source
Note 2: External optical drivers and floppy drives will not be mounted automatically, as Android doesn't officially support them
Note 3: CSS protected DVDs are not supported (e.g. Retail movies), due to Linux kernel limitations
Note 4: NTFS is not supported 'out of the box', please use Paragon driver from Google Play
(PLEASE install Busybox 1.20.2 using one of the installer apps from Google Play, it is needed for the Kernelmanager application to function properly)
Please report if something does not work!!
Mounting optical drives:
1: First make sure your device is proper rooted (the "mount" command we'll use needs root)
2: Install Android Terminal Emulator from Google Play and open it
3: Type "su" and press enter, you should be asked if you would like to give root access, say Yes
4: Make a mountpoint directory, e.g. "mkdir /Removable/opticaldrive"
5: Mount your optical drive (make sure it gets enough power and something is inserted in the drive) using this command: "busybox mount /dev/block/sr0 /Removable/opticaldrive"
6: You're done! If you inserted a DVD movie, you might want to install Wondershare player or some other player that is capable of playing DVDs with menus
7: If you encounter any difficulties, please reply on this thread or send me a message
Connecting your TF101 to wired ethernet:
1: Buy a TF101 USB Host connector if you don't already have one (they are very cheap online, around 12-15 dollars)
2: Connect the adapter to your TF101, plug in your USB ethernet adapter
3: Android will display a message in the lower right corner of the screen that an ethernet adapter has been connected
4: Connect the LAN cable
5: Android will display a message that your device is connected using DHCP, you can now use internet using LAN
6: If you require manual IP settings, please go to Android's settings, there you can set manual IP or DHCP (OPTIONAL STEP)
