I got tired of forcing the charge from the command line. I wrote a python
app to view and control the charge current.

You need to "opkg install python-pygtk python-pygobject" and your kernel
needs to have the force_usb_limit_dangerous patch.

copy into /usr/bin and
"chmod u+x /usr/bin/power_center"

copy into

To enable fast 500 mA charge "touch /home/root/allow_force_500"

To enable fast 1000 mA charge "touch /home/root/allow_force_1000" I don't
recommend using this one
