Power over USB-Host Port
« on: August 22, 2014, 09:57:56 pm »
Does somebody know, if it's possible to power the Cubieboard over a USB-Host-Port, instead of the OTG-Port.
I did read, that this is not possible with early Raspberry Pis (and you could damage them) but it works with newer ones.
My brother wants to use a Cubieboard with a Motorola Lapdock and if it's not possible I would solder a custom cable.

Ok Kavinsky. Perhaps that would be really the best idea.
