For example  before I attached a ftdi MiniUsb to Serial Converter I wrote:

host > /sys/devices/platform/s3c2410-ohci/usb_mode
1 > /sys/bus/platform/devices/neo1973-pm-host.0/hostmode

then I attached the device and it powered and got recognized by the Kernel. 

Now I can only power it up but it is not recognized by the kernel.
