Am wondering , connecting a powered usb hub to Beagle bone black before booting will fix the hotplug issue. That is, can I hotplug usb devices to the USB hub, provided USB hub was connected before booting the BBB.
Is there any hope this issue will be addressed in the new batch of boards under manufacturing?
One trick I've used in the past on the classic beagle's, always have a
cheap usb-flash drive plugged into your usb hub. As long as one
actual device is always connected, usb hotplug for other devices just
seems to work better..
Have you tried with a powered hub? I donot have a board with me. Would like to check this before buying.
