Hi all, Just wondering if it's possible to use a USB flash drive with an iPad? I know iOS4.2 stopped this, but does a jailbreak fix it? Thanks James...

Apparently there is a fix for this but it's not yet released, in another forum br0x said he had figured out how to fix it and was working with Comex to be included in JBM.com. Because it's a kernel patch it requires a restore and re-jailbreak. I don't know if this is at all true, but hopefully JBM will be updated soon and include this.

Ok got my Datastick Sport 32 GB USB drive yesterday and loaded it up with some movies and sure enough it works.
So my 32 GB iPad 2 now can have access to a lot more content.
Only about $50 spent. Well with the added cost of the CCK too.

Maybe start a sticky or something and make a list of compatible USB sticks that work with the CCK.
This way people will know what to google when shopping online for compatible drives. I have a few others in the house but the one I mentioned about and the 8Gb version are the only two that seem to work.

You can check before connecting an USB Stick into USB Power tab on Windows and see if this device uses more than 100mAh.
I know some USB sticks from china that doesn't have the feature to inform the power that needs the device, so iPad can't "block" you and you can have access to the device without problems...
