    USB Host Mode for the Nexus One!!!

    Nexus One USB host driver - xda-developers

    (Nexus One USB host driver)

    Ok, what is it?

    In a nutshell, it allows you to use USB devices plugged into the Micro-USB port on the N1 (with an adapter).

    Such as:

    Mouse
    Keyboard
    Thumb Drive

    Use your N1 as a Web Cam

    The possibilities are almost endless! :D

    I have ordered what I need to do this with my N1 and will update, but if you have questions, post on XDA or here and I can try and help! :D

    I have not tried it yet, I am waiting for the cables, but from the looks of the software, it does appear to need to be rooted.

    I will report back.

    This might be the best reason to root your Nexus! If this requires rooting that is. I do hope not! Now your phone will be even more like a computer lol. I'd love to use my Nexus as a webcam :D

    I added more details to my Nexus One Google Group:

    Google Nexus One Owners | Google Groups

    You will need root. You need to buy a couple cables. Lucky for me, I have some places locally that I was able to get the parts, now to just root and hook this up to my Keyboard, Mouse and 23" monitor and see how it goes. :D

    Will have to wait until tomorrow, have to go see the kid today. :D

    You can already use your N1 as a webcam, I use it as my main webcam all the time. Been released for like 4 months now too...free on top of that.

    Everything you need is at the github linked above, proally should stay away unless your semi-computer literate.

    Thank you for taking the time to post this :)

    I would rather have a great bluetooth keyboard app (Not FreedomPro since they are overcharging a**holes).

    I dont understand why android doesn't have bluetooth support for HID devices :thinking::mad::thinking::mad::thinking::mad:

    Can someone PLEASE come up with a suitable bluetooth keyboard driver for android? :(:(:(
