[HOW TO] Mount External Hard Drive
For both 3G and WiFi only XOOM
1. Unlocked, rooted, and runnnig one of the latest kernels
2. Powered external hard drive
3. OTG cable (I have this one-> HERE)
Download & install this APK by hellcat82 -> Download
1. Connect external hard drive via OTG cable
2. Open Mount app
3. Select Mount
4. Choose device
After you are finished with the hard drive:
1. Open Mount app
2. Select Unmount
I will update this if the APK doesn't work. I have been unable to mount/unmount through gscript and terminal emulator. Not sure what the issue is, but the APK should work for all.

Sweet deal...... so many threads are going to end with a link to this one! Thanks Droid-xer!
Now I just need my darn cable to show up in the mail!
Keep on Xoomin'
Appreciate it! This will be a very helpful reference. Thanks for taking the time to put it together.

I guessing this app requires root access.
Remember: It's not really yours until you've voided the warranty.

Ya I had wanted to add the manual method but I had permissions denied even though I changed permissions through root explorer and ADB, files were recognized but could not be linked...so if anyone has a simple manual method post it up and I'll add to the OP
D'oh! Let me edit the OP. Yes you must be rooted and on a kernel with USB hosting (which is all the current kernels)

All sellers are in China....every time I do business with someone in China my account gets hacked
I used paypal to avoid any hassle. But the link i put for the otg cable, the seller is really good. Great communication and fast shipping.
