    Other script is for turning keyboard sounds on and off. In 2.0, the keyboard won't mute until volume is on 0. Some people don't like that.

    They are basically examples for people to look at so they can make their own scripts.

    Android Market, Toggle USB Host and Toggle Keyboard Sounds should be pretty good examples to follow.

    Use magnetic charger. Then you can charge and use USB.

    To make sure you haven't done any silly commands that broke USB OTG, first do a reboot of your Playbook.

    Then connect over wifi and 'Install' the toggle_usb_host.script in your Scripts folder.

    Thanks for all your hard work.
    You made it so simple to use and I made it more difficult from stupidity on my part.
    For myself the usb folder was always empty until I used WinSCP and went to properties of the usb folder and notice the permission for (others -Read) wasn't ticked off.
    Now working perfect.
    Thanks again for all your time and effort

    Just curious: Did you make the usb folder beforehand (before running script) by yourself?

    The script makes the usb folder with correct properties. If this didn't work, there's something for me to fix :P
    Perhaps I should add correct properties on each run -- just in case.

    Yes, USB Host does kill battery life quite quickly!

    By the way, I have included a toggle_usb_host.script in Dingleberry v3.3.2. If you install that script (via wifi) you can easily toggle it on and off.

    You cannot do this via USB. Change IP in Dingleberry to the Wifi one.
    How do you install the toggle_usb_host.script via wifi ?

    Enter your PB's Wifi IP address in top left corner of DB.

    You didn't make the folder or the script didn't make the folder?

    Also, which privileges was the folder on when you first saw it?

    The script made the folder, not sure what you mean privileges?
    If you mean permissions all were ticked except others(read)

    Not sure if it makes a difference both PB were rooted with 3.0,redingled with 3.3.then ran the usb script.

    The first time you ran the usb host script was from which Dingleberry version?

    The script in v3.3.2+ does: chmod 770 usb

    That's same privileges all the other shared files have?

    So has anyone else had the sense to try developing a native app with serial communication?

    This is the one feature that would make the Playbook unbeatable in my opinion.
    I've seen a few android apps that enable USB support.

    Is it possible to petition RIM to get them to enable USB support. Being able to transfer pictures from a digital camera to my Playbook would totally rock.

    USB support is possible. I can access my camera photos using an SD card reader.

    You just have to have the PB rooted and apply the proper dingleberry script.

    Well the reason we got it working in the first place is because RIM had added it. In the same way Android has added it (and some manufacturers enable it).
    It just doesn't work too well right now on Playbook.

    I've tried to write a native app to toggle USB host and toggle the serial USB driver without any luck. Permissions for running the appropriate commands are restricted; can't even change directory to any higher than those contained in the app.
