int3.cc - FaceDancer21
If you aren't already familiar with the FaceDancer or Travis Goodspeed and Sergey Bratus's USB research, we suggest you read up on it a bit. If you dont want to, here is a short description of the FaceDancer:

The USB protocol requires that anything with USB declare itself as either a "device" or "host". "Hosts" are computers and other "big" things. "Devices" are iPod, iPads, USB thumb drives, and other "small" accessory-like things. (If you are familiar with USB OTG cables, then you probably understand a bit about this already.) If you ever want a USB "host" to pretend to be a USB "device", you need special hardware. The FaceDancer is that hardware.

The FaceDancer allows a computer (or "host") to masquerade as a USB "device" to communicate with other USB devices or USB Hosts. The FaceDancer allows a developer to access data on the USB bus from high level languages like C, Python, and Ruby.

[12.02.2012][2.3.1+] USB Host Diagnostics v1.2 - xda-developers
USB Host Diagnostics determines your device's USB host capabilities.

USB host is a very powerful feature of recent Android based smartphones and tablets, but on many firmwares (both stock and custom) the feature is somewhat broken.

For example, at launch the Galaxy Nexus told all the apps and the Market that it supported USB host, but USB host did not actually work (this was fixed in the Android 4.0.2 update). This broke several apps.

That is just one example of many. There are even cases where OEMs advertise USB host support, but the device does not support it at all. It appears as if USB host support isn't tested by Google or the OEMs when they push out new firmwares and devices at all.

As we cannot depend on Google or the OEMs to correctly provide information regarding USB host support, and the Android framework will regularly lie about it to both the Market as well as Android apps, this application was created so you can test your device's USB host capabilities for yourself.

If you allow it, the app will also submit your results to my website, so together we can create a complete database of devices and firmwares and their USB host support.

This tool may also come in handy for those porting firmwares.

Requirements:
- Android 2.3.1 or newer
- (Optional) Root
- USB OTG cable (unless your device has a fullsize USB port)
- USB memory stick, or another USB device to test the connection with

The result database is available here:
http://usbhost.chainfire.eu/

The download can be found on Market here:
http://pkg.to/eu.chainfire.usbhostdiagnostics

Android app tethers handsets to Canon cams, live view fanboys rejoice (video)
We're living in a post-pc world, folks. High time you got with the program and junked that heavy and outmoded relic called the computer. But how does one take tethered snaps from a Canon, sans EOS Utility? Meet DSLR Controller, an Android app from Chainfire that turns your little green robot into an external live view monitor, and gives you complete control over your shooter's finer sensibilities. It lets you tweak exposure, aperture, shutter, white balance and focus with sensuous swipes of your fingertip. To make the whole shindig work, you'll need an Android device packing a USB host port and an "on-the-go" USB cable -- which lets your handset wear the pants in the phone / DSLR relationship. We should also warn you that the $8.51 application is currently still in beta and thus streams video in live view mode at a less than optimal 15fps. Those and other foibles may be remedied by the final release, but if you're looking to practice your tethering voodoo immediately, hit the source below, and watch a vid of your photographic future after the break.Continue reading Android app tethers handsets to Canon cams, live view fanboys rejoice (video)
