H-E-N (USB Hostmode GUI)  by  Mohammad Abu-GarbeyyehSystem category

USB Host Mode enabler. It lets you connect various USB devices (pendrives, dongles, mice, keyboards, hubs, HDDs, etc.) to your Nokia N900.


H-E-N (USB Hostmode GUI) for Nokia N900 / Maemo 5


You will need a female-to-female USB adapter, and the stock USB cable.

It is impossible at the moment to detect speed changes while VBUS is running, so for now, you have to select speeds manually. Use common sense in doing so, high speed is for devices that require a lot of writing and are fairly new (flash drives/HDDs/CD-drives, new hubs). Full speed devices are devices that do not require a lot of USB activity, such as BT/2.4GHz mouse transceivers. Low speed devices are normal mice and keyboards.

A help window is available and will guide you through the steps needed. The mount button is currently hardcoded to mount /dev/sda1, default for most USB flash drives and HDDs. For NTFS support, do modprobe ntfs as root. For ISO (CDs/DVDs - most of them), do modprobe isofs (also as root). CDs will have the dev node /dev/sr0, so you'll need to do mount /dev/sr0 /mnt etc.

Disabling tracker by adding /media/flash to tracker-cfg's non watch configuration is recomended, use tracker-cfg UI.


H-E-N (USB Hostmode GUI) for Nokia N900 / Maemo 5


Important Note: H-E-N requires kernel patches and it REPLACES the kernel on your device with a PR1.3-based patched one. If you use e.g. the Power Kernel for overclocking, it will be REPLACED, which means that you won't be able to overclock your N900 while using H-E-N, at least until PR1.3-based Power Kernel is released.

Switching speeds "on the fly" is not possible for now. You have to stop hostmode and start over from beginning. Also the much requested hostmode while charging is not yet supported. A version of jrbme integrating management of VBUS (incl. "charging hostmode") as well as hostmode enabling and notifications to user is supposed to come in a few weeks. This system extension might also deal eventually with automatic speed detection and things like proper umount/sync for "safe removal", with suspend, with hotswapping battery, etc.

For more details, please see this thread @ TMO.

Hy everybody! Some people had a problem to mount pendrive. I need to give you a tip. Maybe it will work. So, when the "Linux kernel for power user" was installed; you must restart the phone. Let's run h-e-n and touch the top of the screen -> settings -> Open file manager after mount. Remove the tick from here. (I had a problem: I had not originally file manager as default.) I hope I can help you! (Sorry for my english.) BTRABI2 [Rate: 9/10]

Hi I have downloaded th h-e-n application & am able to connect Mouse successfully with my N900. But I am NOT able to connect any pen drive/USB flash drives with it.
