Somebody in the thread at some point said:
| In IRC we were wondering why the Freerunner, being a USB-OTG-Host
| (according to the OTG spec), only has a USB Mini-B interface (black
| jack). This means that only USB-Mini-B cables can be used in that
| jack, what causes that USB-OTG cables can't be used. The Freerunner
| is clearly a device that should have a Mini-AB port (grey jack),
| means it can be used as a client (over standard Mini-B plugs) or as a
| OTG-Host (over standard Mini-A plugs). It is only as small issue -
| the electric layout of both jacks is basically the same (means the
| Mini-B-jack can be replaced without changing layout or something else
The apeture on the case is correct only for mini USB, so it isn't quite
painless. The OTG socket has a different profile.
The plastic case apeture conforms closely to the Mini B profile shape.
The thing does work OK as USB host, as you say the cables are going to
be an issue.
