USB Host Controller mod makes your Android phone do more

Many of us wish our devices did more with USB. Recognized Developer sztupy is one such person.
His latest invention is USB Host Controller, an application that takes advantage of the native OTG Host functionality built into many of the high-end Android devices and makes it easily accessible for the end user. According to sztupy, this robust application:
Shows enumerated usb devices, and allows you to mount external mass storage devices to the filesystem. Supports advanced features like the ability to reload partition tables and reseting USB devices. It can also control the USB Host functionality of S5PC210 devices with the appropriate kernel patch (more about this later)
The application does not use the USB Host API, so it can also run on older, 2.x devices. Because of that however almost all functionality (except for the listing of USB devices) requires root access.
So head on over to the thread here and take this app for a spin; your flash drives will thank you for it.
