usb support?

I know SD cards are cheap but USB sticks/drives are somewhat more el cheapo and many people have a USB stick at least > 512mb. I personally think that mini should have USB support at least and I hope BootMii will get support. I did read that USB could be implemented on the PowerPC (via AHBPROT), but I know of no from-scratch USB stacks one could work with.

(As Ceiling Cat (BootMii on the Broadway) is currently not open-source I have no clue what to implement on the PPC -- so I would have to use the ARM.)

If you feel like writing an PPC USB driver to get added to MINI, feel free and I'm sure that if it is stable and fairly bug free, Team Twiizers will be happy to add it to MINI officially. Until then, don't make demands, make requests. You said MINI "needs" to support USB. It does not. You feel it should, that does not equate to necessity. Try to word requests in a more polite manner in future please. And SD cards are pretty darn cheap =P (I apologise if I come across as rude here, its not intentional; reading back the post it seems a bit like it, but I don't know how to reword it while still getting the point across. Try not to take any offence)

It was unintentional SifJar -- I reworded it a bit so it wasn't so forceful.
