    you could control it over Ethernet....
    all you need is a little hardware...Ethernet to serial, well.. the tricky part of this is DTR and RTS control
    then you could forget the whole usb thing

    Sun, Come shine my way
    May healing waters bury all my pain
    Wind, Carry me home
    The fabric of reality is tearing apart
    The piece of me that died
    Will return To live again

    I would like to have it. Mostly so if I encounter someone that will build something at least I won't have to go searching.

    Since it is a small java file, I have attached the FTDI/PL2303 Driver file as a text file to this post.

    If you need serial or i2c connection, you can avoid host mode altogether with FT311D chip http://www.ftdichip.com/Android.htm . However, it hasn't quite caught on.

    Just a followup note. I have attempted to contact tuffbob (poster of the YouTube video) and no reply. Would be nice if he would at least respond. However, it's only been a week so we'll see.

    I'm thinking at this point that FTDI driver or not, in the end it must create a serial port object in Android and communication happens with that serial port. So to get over the OTG + Charging a Bluetooth serial adapter may also work.

    My research continues. If I know I can get reliable serial communication with the radio, I may actually attempt to make something in the way of an app (pretty green at Android development).

    You could probably use an IOIO board. The cool thing about the IOIO is that it supports USB or Bluetooth. For Bluetooth you just connect a BT dongle to the USB port of the IOIO.
