Hello. I personally would like to see a patch applied to CM9 that removes the USB device whitelist. If one attaches a non-HID device, dmesg reports that the device is "unsupported", however, that may not always be the case. For example, my USB to serial adapter should theoretically work without issue, and I can't seem to find a logical explanation to leave it in place. Currently, the whitelist checks against a pair of whitelists hardcoded in C, so, theoretically, fixing/modding to remove the whitelist should be no more difficult than skipping the check for a device's vendor/product ID in whatever functions verify support in the whitelist, or having the whitelist always return a device's ID as being valid.
