    External USB storage Support on JB iPad 2 4.3.3

    First, please dont flame, I have spent a long time searching the forum already and could not find an answer so here i post

    I have a now JBed ipad2 4.3.3 and would like to know what app/tweak I can use to access usb sticks through the camera kit (if possible).

    What worried me is that, since the JB, my ipad does not even open the picture importer wizard when I plug in a usb card from my digi camera, now.... is this the 'kernel bug'?

    Thanks

    I noticed that in the edit option of ifile there are up to four flash drives, but none of these are visible in normal operation, whatever I plug in.

    So when you have ifile open and plug in your flash drive...does anything appear under the "Disk" header in the left side column? May have to give it a few seconds...does the light blink on your flash drive?

    Interesting that the light on one stick flashes and then stays on, but the light on the other stick flashes and then goes out.

    In both cases no icon comes up under the disk menu.

    output from dmesg is :


    AppleEmbeddedUSBNub::initWithProvider : finished nub init
    AppleEmbeddedUSBArbitrator::updatePublishedNubs : publishing nub 0x88468480 for usb-ehci
    AppleEmbeddedUSBNub::withProvider : allocated new nub 0x84a10d00

    Essentially, after Apple downgraded the power in that port (with iOS 4.0), most flash sticks don't work. Usually, you get a message saying it won't, but sometimes you get nothing (and you don't see the drive in iFiles' list).

    Try putting in an SD card (up to 32GB). If that works, you're in business (and you can buy a USB card reader device should you really need to have a USB port to use on other computers).

    Good luck and let us know how it comes out.

    I have the same problem. I cannot connect any device after JB, but I am not so sure if this problem was after update to 4.3.3. Definitely was no problem with 4.3.1. Now i cannot connect even my iphone to my ipad 2, nothing in /var/mnt. Any suggestions ?

    I have tried USB sticks and SD cards. In the past I would simply plug in the SD from my camera and it would open pictures and show me the pics to import. That is now not working, exactly the same firmware, same memory. It was fine before the JB, so it is too much of a coincidence to think it is not related.

    I'm assuming you already re-booted the iPad as well and still having the same problems?

    Can you see the SD card in iFile (is it listed under Devices?).
