I was successful in uploading the Google ADK firmware onto the PhoneDrone board and load the Demokit onto the android phone. When I connect the Android phone to the PhoneDrone Board, the phone app could not detect the USB connection. I tried on a different Google recommend board and it seem to work as far as usb detection. I also tried the Vin supply with a 9V battery but the result was the same. In all cases the red light was on. I did note that when the board is connected to the phone, the charge indicator does light up.
Has anyone been able to get it beyond this phone?
Were you able to solve this? I tried the same this morning and everything worked fine. I´d like to invite you to share your experiences in the google group that I created https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=de&fromgroups#!forum/phone-drone-adk
It took much research, I got it to work with Arduino 1.0. I am certain that if you follow the direction, it would not work. The google group is in german. Is there one in english?
Sorry, the link was wrong https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/phone-drone-adk The group is called "phone-drone-adk" if you want to search it yourself, Google groups just tried to speak german with the link, the posts should be in English.
So did you make it work with Arduino 1.0? If so, You propably had to change the USBAccesory and USBHost library code, is there a chance to find this on Github or GoogleCode?
Stupid link detection, http://groups.google.com/group/phone-drone-adk is the adress! :)
I used the USBHost library 2.0 in order to make it work. But you have to make changes to the library in accordance to the fine print. It ask you to uncomment some lines in MAX XXXXX library if you are using 2560.
I trying to send messages from android to the phonedrone board for servos. Do you have any experience?
Yes but its part of the instruction depending on the chip you are using.
