I use it with Nesoid, Gensoid, and the Super Nintendo emulators. I ordered my USB OTG cable off of ebay. Just google "Micro USB Host OTG Cable for Toshiba C6-01 N810 N900 C7" and get it from seller hdmihome2010. I ordered it May 11th and got it May 16th. China to Nashville, TN in 5 days? Who the hell knows how, but I got mine and it's working flawlessly. I'm running Tiamat 1.4.2

And, I saw a forum photo today of someone using a PS3 controller via the USB (not wireless). I know it wasn't possible to use that wirelessly because of some proprietary handshake that the PS3 controller has to make, but it appears you can use the wired connection. So when I get home, I'm going to check that out also to confirm. I hope it works because i prefer the ps3 controller much better.
I had initially been using the wii controller and the WiiMote controller app. It worked pretty good but I noticed there was a slight lag when you pressed a button. It really became apparent when I was trying to play Ninja Gaiden (NES). But with the wired Xbox controller, I have no lag. It's awesome.

1) Can someone confirm if the XBox controlle works with the Xoom US Android 3.1.0 Version?
Or will I need customzed cernel?
2) I've got a USB host cable and attached a ordinary mouse to it, but the mouse LED did not turn on. Does it mean I've overseen something or does it proove that the there is no USB power supply over this cable (wrong cable?)

Here is one that doesn't work:
Amazon.com: USB Micro B (M) to USB A (F) Adapter - Converts USB Micro B Devices to Full Size USB A!: Electronics
The 2 reviews said it did but the product details do not indicate it is an OTG/host. Its one of the first results that come up on amazon if you search Xoom usb host.
I've re-ordered from this ebay seller
but can't vouche for it yet.

If you have the right cable, the mouse should light up. I've tried my phone, a camera, a mouse, and two different keyboards. As soon as you plug something in, it works.
