hi

I've seen that some phones will enable host mode if you boot them with the data pins shorted, done with a "dongle". anyone tried this on the defy? I'll make one and try it if no one has.

I doubt it will damage anything. they won't be able to source enough current.

I've checked and the omap3610 supports usb otg. I will try to test this weekend.

Scratch that, it is not the data pins, you connect the "extra" pin (pin 4) to ground.
