   If you try om utility (from omhacks package) it could have parameter for 
   enabling fast charge. Then you can edit the Fast charge mode script so 
   that 
   it uses om command (and send the result to me so that i can commit it 
   as 
   patch ;-).  
  Thanks for the hint. As soon as I will be able to log through ssh I will
  try to find a way to make it work (86ma is probably not enough to start
  WiFi)
 
  ah! keep in mind: if you enable wifi at least once in any boot
  cycle, your moko will drain more current than usual, also if you
  disconnect wifi and put the phone to sleep.
 
 Are you really sure? Because i'm not aware of any bugs in this
 area. Please clarify.
 

here on my v34 the issue is 100% repeatable... I thought it was a known one, 
isn't it?
sometimes I use wifi to check emails before going to sleep and can happens I 
forget to reboot my gta02, so the following morning I find my battery almost 
empty or phone in power-off state (it shuts down itself when the charge is 
under certain level)

(IIRC there is nothing in the v35 changelog about this topic)

Hm, you do not spare too many details, do you :) Are you really sure
the ar6000 module is unbinded when you disable wifi?

Re: [QtMoko] USB charging (and network) from Windows 7

Hi,
  
windows 7, What is it? ^^
  
  
  
Le mardi 24 mai 2011 12:18:05, Xavier Cremaschi a écrit :
 Hi folks,
 is there any way to force usb charging in QtMoko ?
 
 As there is no support for usb networking with Windows 7 (it seems to be
 disabled in QtMoko kernel), my Freerunner only gets 100ma while being
 plugged on my workplace computer through USB.
 
 How can I force it to gets 500ma ? As QtMoko (v35) seems to consume a
 bit more battery than my old SHR, I would like to be able to charge it
 during the day (without bringing the charger).
 
 Any idea ? I've spotted a Fast charge mod in the upper left menu (the
 one full of icons) but it seems to do nothing.
 
 Thanks in advance for help.
 Xavier.

I think RNDIS should be enabled, but i havent tried it for very long time and 
IIRC it worked only with winxp.

If you put the phone to sleep, it should draw like 14mA, so you can charge 
with 86mA.

 Any idea ? I've spotted a Fast charge mod in the upper left menu (the

It's one of the original scripts from Qt Extended/Qtopia. I think the sysfs 
paths have changed since then.

If you try om utility (from omhacks package) it could have parameter for 
enabling fast charge. Then you can edit the Fast charge mode script so that 
it uses om command (and send the result to me so that i can commit it as 
patch ;-).

I know it was possible with SHR (not with recent kernels) and Windows 7
at some time.

Ok, very slow charging ongoing. I hope it will be good for this evening ^^'

will drain more current than usual, also if you disconnect wifi and put the 
phone to sleep.
you have to reboot your phone to actually cut down the power consumption after 
a wireless connection.
...so beware, because in 100mA charging mode maybe you are actually discharging 
the phone.
