Default Problem in using Slick usb 2 serial library

Hi,
I am using slick usb 2 serial apk to connect serial adapters to android device.The app should work with any android device having usb host capability and running Android 3.1. I have tested this with Motorola XOOM and it works perfect. Unfortunately, the serial adapter is not even getting detected by the app when plugged in to Micromax funbook. If anyone has used this app in funbook please let me know whether it requires installation of device specific drivers.

Funbook Kernel version: 3.08+ inet-soft@inet # 16
Build no: 97F1-D1-H2-H01-MMX.20120330

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I could make the USB to Serial working for Micromax funbook

Steps:

1) Insert the linux driver module for the Usb2Serial device
For my case it was Prolific device; the driver for this device is PL2303.ko.

Sorry, since I am the new user for this forum, I could not attach the driver module here. but you can get the module here " forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1667129".
->Download FunBook version 3 from this site;
->Unzip the folder;
->pl2303.ko can be find in ..\FunSeriesv3.0\system\vendor\modules.

command for inserting the module in linux
insmod \sdcard\pl2303.ko

2) Run the SerialPort_1.1.apk
This app can be taken from " code.google.com/p/android-serialport-api/downloads/detail?name=SerialPort_1.1.apk "

3) configure the device for ttyusb0 and use it

Thanks a ton Rathinavel. Your solution worked for Prolific device. We have to support FTDI device as well, but unfortunately, I wasn't able to find the driver for FTDI in the link that you have shared. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks & Regards,
Deepthi
