    Lightbulb My Work with the Bionic and USB Host Mode

    Hi everyone,

    I am posting this with the hope that I will be providing a condensed source of information looking to use the Bionic as a USB host without any docks and whatnot.

    Supplies:
    1 Standard USB A cable
    1 Standard USB A socket
    1 Micro USB plug

    Short version:

    Cut the USB A cable and splice the female socket onto the micro USB plug.
    Splice into that cable the USB male end so that you now have a three ended cable.

    Done!

    Here's a video explaining:

    The issue here isn't buying a cable, rather it is getting the Bionic to function in USB host mode without a dock. Do some reading, you'll see that even with a purchased OTG cable, the Bionic still needs some help to function as a USB host. Furthermore, my real goal is to experiment with the Bionic hosting different USB devices, primarily as I mentioned, an external camera.

    For the D1 - get an app called IP webcam. It will take a little setup, but you will be able to use the D1 as a webcam and then access it from a browser through IP. Rather simple, actually.

    I'm sort of at a roadblock with getting an external camera to work on the Bionic. I have the cable and power supply taken care of. Now the issue is drivers/app support.
