I have a Huawei u8160 running Cyanogenmod 7.2 .

I've recently been digging into USB host mode and I finally activated it. However when I connect my phone to the PC it doesn't give me a notification about "USB connected". It only charges the phone (that means it's connected).

How I activate USB host mode :

insmod /system/lib/modules/ehci-hcd.ko

or by using Module Loader App.

How I tried to deactivate USB host mode (which failed):

rmmod ehci_hcd

and when I list the mods using lsmod it returns that ehci_hcd mod isn't there

My question here is how can I deactivate the mode in a way that USB Mass Storage would work?

NOTE: I saw USB Mass Storage Not Working question and it doesn't work.

Try this command instead:

rmmod ehci-hcd

Please could you explain how this answers the question? What does this command do, how does it work? – Liam W Jan 26 '13 at 12:22
Mohamed Essam stated that they tried that and it failed. – ZnewmaN Jan 26 '13 at 17:12
