USB on beagleboard

Please correct me if I am wrong, but if one were to solder connections to the
"pad" where the EHCI port would have been populated, would it work, assuming
the appropriate changes were made in software?

Ok so the 'high-speed USB 2.0 OTG' feature advertised on

Incorrect. The high-speed USB 2.0 OTG port is certainly there and
functional. The USB port being discussed is a *second* USB 2.0 host-
only (EHCI) port.

No.
