    New Vega - Best Honeycomb Rom with USB Host

    I have just bought a Vega from ebay, ready for my holiday

    I want to connect my camera so I can review pictures etc, which I assume means I need USB Host mode, the new 3.2 Rom doesn't yet support..

    So which is the recommended one for USB Host? 1.7?

    Considering that you have asked for the best Honeycomb ROM then you are limited to the two you have already noted. As yet it is only VC 1.7 which has USB host mode, hold the back button down whilst booting.

    Bug list for VC 3.2...

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...hl=en_US#gid=0

    If you wanted a more "complete" and fully working ROM, but built on Froyo, then you could go for Corvus with SP 1 and use the Honeycomb theme.

    I have gone back to build 8.1 of VegaComb, from Corvus, as I have been a little spoilt by just how nice it is, regardless of some of its issues at the moment. However if I really needed USB host mode then I would look to the Corvus ROM.

    Do not forget that if you would want to try the latest VC 3.2 ROM then you MUST flash the modified 1.10 ver 2 ROM, which changes your partition sizes, first.
    In fact I would do that regardless of which ROM you want to try then you are prepared for if and when you want to go over to 3.2. The modified 1.10 ver 2 ROM contains a recovery app to boot back into CWM to flash whichever ROM you would want.

    good luck

    I want to connect a camera (SLR with a CF card) to browse the photos while I'm away.. Hence the need for USB host mode..

    There is no honeycomb ROM that supports USB host mode yet. If you really need USB host support you will need to go to a froyo ROM such as Corvus5.

    Edit: I stand corrected. I didn't realise VC 1.7 had host support but I would still use Corvus5 if I needed USB host.

    Or if you up to spend an extra 30 you can just buy the official dock station and be happy like me with host mode working in any ROM....

    I really hope you're trying to use host mode in the USB ports in the dock, and not in the Vega.
    But every ROM I ever used I most stuff I wanted I simply plugged in the docks USB ports and it worked.
    Works: keyboard, mouse, flash drives, USB hard drives.
    Didn't work: more complex stuff that need proprietary drivers n softwares, such as 3G dongles, USB audio devices, my Samsung Galaxy S2 tethered to share the internet

    ps.: VegaComb 3.2 is miles better than 1.7, I strongly suggest anyone to change to it.

    I'm running 3.2 8.1 and can't get the dock usb ports to work with xbox 360 wired controller either, although a hard drive reads ok.
    A usb joystick works too.
