    Hi,

    I'm still "learning" my new MID7022, and I was reviewing at the dmesg and noticed that it apparently has a USB HID driver that loads during boot, so I tried using the micro-USB-to-USB cable that came with the MID7022, and plugged in one of my USB mice, and was surprised that the mouse worked. Not only that, but I get a mouse cursor on the display also (the reason for the surprise, is that on my stock Gtablet, mouse works, but no cursor).

    Pretty cool!!

    I'm wondering now if I use a USB hub (maybe powered?), I might be able to hook both a mouse and keyboard simultaneously.

    Has anyone tried that with a MID7022 yet?

    Jim

    Yes... I have a USB keyboard and a USB mouse (from an Acer desktop purchase) that I connect simultaneously via a powered USB hub to my 7022 and both work well.

    Thats really cool! I just attempted to connect an old razer diamondback gaming mouse. I like how right click acts as the back button.

    With my USB mouse connected to my 7022, clicking the mouse wheel in Opera Mobile toggles the address & button bars top & bottom of screen.

    Just tried and HTPC trackball remote that I had kicking around; some of the functions work (mouse functions, volume, Direction keys).

    Better than nothing I suppose, but it would be good if someone did an app (or something) which could interpret more keyboard command than android seems to recognise natively.

    There are a few keyboard/mouse combos out there that channel through a single usb receiver so you don't need a hub. Saw two different Logitech sets at Walmart. Around $35-$40. I've also seen them on Amazon. One of those is what I'm going to use with the HDMI feeding my TV for a big-screen laptop setup. :) I thought this also might not draw as much power as two receivers.

    I use a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, have you given that combination a try?

    7022 doesn't have bluetooth, not sure if anyone has it working through an adaptor yet.

    Strange, my 7022 won't power up any of the mice I have.

    I'm also having trouble with the touchscreen.

    I wonder if what is causing my TS to malfunction (driver(s) not loaded at boot, perhaps) is also causing my mouse to not work...

    There is a thread about CWM on 7022 where there is a system backup that many users have reported that after installing it the system got better. You may wanna try it...

    Does the mouse need to run through a powered hub in order to work?

    A forum search didn't bring up anything about "CWM." Could you direct me to a link?

    EDIT: I suspect you meant ClockWorkMod, which I have installed.

    Where can I download the backup to which you are referring?

    Dang it. If you were suggesting I should install fun's ROM to fix the TS problem, then it seem that the endeavor may be futile; I've already installed his ROM. :/

    EDIT: I bought the Tab on eBay with no cables and I didn't realize I needed an OTG cable, which explains why my mouse won't work. TYVM.

    Nope, it's a backup ROM from a member of this very forum (I think it was thickerblicker, something like this... :p ).
