DFT LEO USBH WM65


Introduction

this project was started long time ago, but then, during luck of free time for this project, it was suspended.
Now, because it seems very hard to improve it more, we make decision to release developed stuffs. Also more interesting projects now appear ;)


About release

This release contains drivers designed to allow connect different USB devices to HTC LEO (HTC HD2)
Those drivers designed for Windows Mobile 6.5 OS and they were successfully tested on 3.14 ROM. Other ROMs are not tested.

For using USB host ability you need use special cable or self-powered USB hub.
More information can be found here

This release supports HID and MassStorage profiles.
You can connect UsB Mouse, USB Keyboard, USB Stick, USB Hard Disk.
Of course, you need enough external power for devices.



Please remember, this is some kind of demonstration,
this implementation sometimes isn't stable and you can have issues during usage.



PLEASE MAKE DATA BACKUP BEFORE INSTALLING!


Installation:

1. Install CotullaCert.cab
2. Install DFT_LEO_USBH_WM65.CAB.
3. Reset.


Usage:

1. Programs -> USBH Switch
2. Disconnect from PC.
3. Press "Switch to Host" button.
4. Connect host device.
5. After some time it should be detected.
6. You can try to use it.
7. After usage you need reset your device to go back USB client mode.


NOTE: It's not recommended to connect device to PC during USB Host mode active!

How it can looks in the real :

on picture you see a USB hub (without external power), a self made Y cable, LEO1024, USB mouse, USB Memory Stick and a bunch of cables.
I can see data on USB stick inside file explorer and can control device by mouse (cursor invisible by default). White cable go to USB male which used as VBUS 5V source.

Hi Cotulla!! you finally made it!:D
I´m your early "beta tester" from Argentina, we chatted via msn some months ago. Sadly I don´t have the HD2 anymore to try this again. I have an DHD now and there are some people trying to develop this same thing for the DHD.
Congrats!::)

Brillant !

I try it with a mouse, it"s fine.
And this evening, I'll try with a 1 Tera mass storage.
A HD2 with 1 To : Where are all the challengers from any brand ?

Thank you for your hard work! What software do I need to connect a mouse? I don't see cursor. USB HDD and keyboard works fine.

For me - USB Stick conflicts with microSD card. If I remove it and reboot, USB Stick works. Else USB Stick not detected.

    You know that we are hobby team, so we acts like free painters ;)
    doing something when we like it or drop it and continue with something else, much more interesting at the current moment. then return back to old project with new ideas. It's just some kind of art :)
    ETA, time lines, plans - all this make hobby extremely boring :(

    So we can't and never promise anything exactly...
    So you should not read "we working under ABC" as "they will release ABC soon".
    You should read it as "they looking now to ABC, but if stars of the sky located in the triangle with angles 60 degrees, they will able to successfully finish it and then release it" :D

    Thank you for your hard work! What software do I need to connect a mouse? I don't see cursor. USB HDD and keyboard works fine.
    Yes, mouse with invisible cursor. But I can't advise you any program. Maybe you can search descriptions how to connect mouse to old PDAs with USB Host, like Loox 720.

    Thanks for developing. Do you have plan start usb host on android ?
    Android doesn't support USB Host?
    I know some new devices from Samsung implemented this feature, but I guess it's a lot of different changes inside Android by Samsung :(

    It is only for HD2 or will this work too on Acer Neotouch S200?
    Was designed only for LEO (HD2). I doubt it will work with S200.

    I have a question: If it works for me, is it allowed to cook in USBH in my rom ?
    I need ask other DFT members.
    In general nothing against allowing including it into custom ROMs, because we won't develop new version of this.
    But! Other important thing that it's not stable and can cause issues for users.
    (Like I once activated USB Host during active connection to PC and got BSOD on PC :D )
    So if you include it into ROM, users won't be warned about anything(because they don't read instructions, here they need at least find a CAB....
    Anyway I will answer a bit later.

    Wow, impressive work! I don't use the HD2 anymore, but it's bloody great to see some real good dev work being done on it, especially for WM6.5! :)

    Cotulla, You are truly Porno!

    I sold my HD2 2 years ago, But I have bought a new one today, since I miss the experimenting so much!


    Thanks Bro!
