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

absolutely understood :)
and u know what? even this msg will make many happy.. at least they know now it's not abandoned..

"ETA, time lines, plans - all this make hobby extremely boring :(" -- 100% agree with u :)

thanks again for everything

Ho provato su HTC blackstone (ROM sviluppata da me, WM 6.5) e non funziona :-(
Queste le prove che ho fatto:
1) installato certificato e software di Cotulla
2) collegato cavo per ricarica HTC + adattatore USB Femmina/Femmina + pendrive 4GB (NTFS) e pi anche ocn mouse ottico

altra prova

2.1) collegato cavo a Y (di quelli forniti con chiave per navigazione internet wireless, es. TIM Italia), provato in diverse combinazione ma nulla... Mi si blocca il PDA...
Inutile ogni altro tentativo? sono graditi consigli, grazie :)


@Cotulla
I tried on HTC blackstone (ROM developed by me WM 6.5) and does not work :-(
These are the tests I did:
1) certificate and installed software Cotulla
2) connected to cable for charging HTC + USB adapter Male / Female + 4GB pendrive (NTFS) and even more OCN Optical Mouse

other evidence

2.1) connected to a Y cable (the ones that come with navigation key to Internet access, eg. TIM Italy), tried different combinations but nothing ... I will lock the PDA ...
Needless to any other attempt? tips are welcome, thanks :)

Works a treat, using stock ROM and quserdy's usbinput program for a visible mouse pointer. Have keyboard, mouse and usb stick connected.
Have to keep the screen awake though, else it loses contact with everything and have to reset.
Good job Cotulla and DFT, many thanks.

re

but it does not have a Y cable. Just a little skillful hand. USB 2.0 mother and USB for the LEO. The colors in the inner cables are all the same. simply solder together and ready.

usb dvb-t tuner

Greetings.
Now when usb host ability is here is it possible to connect, for example usb dvb-t tuner?
Of course there would have to be some kind of drivers or software for win mobile for that to be usable...
Is it possible?

no, there no outputs for TV out.

HELP ME... :-( work on Blackstone??
This release designed for HTC LEO only. It won't work on Blackstone, because Blackstone has different hardware.

    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!

    responsibility for any conflict, fault, or damage caused by

    USBH Switch program:

    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.

    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!
