Actually, I had not untill yesterday, because it always gave me the warning that it might make the system unbootable. Encouraged by your question, I finally did so. And guess what? My Banana became unbootable! |
It starts, though, but it never stops finding devices when the OTG adapter is plugged in. So I started again without the adapter, ssh-ed into the machine and set it back to "Banana" without OTG. After the reboot it told me that the file system was corrupt. So I put the SD-card into my PC and ran fsck on it. After that, the Banana finally booted again without any error.
So, I guess it's true than what some pages say: the OTG port is not quite usable as a normal USB port (yet). I really hope this will change in the future, because a third USB port really comes in handy, especially when it has a mini USB connector, which makes it possible to use smaller cables in certain cases, e.g. if you put the board together with some additional hardware into one small case.
