As far, as I understand, the first utility needs additional clean SD card. That is not what I want. Anyway, what are the original sources of these utilities? Thanks.
If these utilities really work - it is great stuff!
Haven't used additional power with them. And they work even in Debian 5 on PC.The most common problem with powered USB 2.0 hubs is back-powering the Pi.
Only file storage.Were you planning on using the Patriot flash drive only for storage, or do you want to boot from it?
