Complete support with USB OTG for Hauwei 3G key models E1550 E1692 E1750 E1820

NTFS Support
I made the necessary changes in order to see external drives formatted with NTFS file system.

Mount NTFS disk ÔÇô what to do:
Automatically at boot time the system will create a folder called win inside the mount point /mnt

Run GScript and add a new script, call it ÔÇô mount-ntfs -
Enter the following command: /system/bin/ntfs-3g /dev/block/sda1 /mnt/win
Connect via usb otg the disk, start the script and entire contents of the disk will appear in /mnt/win

I did a test with a 1TB drive with my mkv and I was able to see to 1080p without any problems.

To umount the disk, create a new script, call it umount-ntfs and enter the following command:
/system/xbin/umount /mnt/win

During umount, all applications that are taking up the mount point /mnt/win SHOULD BE CLOSED.
If you do not, the script does not umount the disk and if the disconnected abruptly, you may lose data.

Entered all necessary kernel modules to support external USB Bluetooth to connect to the USB OTG cable.
Obviously the Android drivers are a bit limited, look on the various forums to see what sticks are compatible.
Of course, Bluetooth file transfer has been included to turn off and turn on and manage the Bluetooth

CIFS support
Added kernel modules in order to see share external network via the CIFS protocol

Full support for OpenVPN
Added kernel module tun.ko to use encrypted connections with OpenVPN server.

Further changes:
Inside /system/xbin directory has been added to the latest version of busybox
The openvpn binary was always placed within this directory.
All kernel modules are loaded at boot time


Bluetooth Bug
When the Bluetooth is on and the display goes to time out, the internal POWER signal is sent to tablet

Sorry NO update, you must flash all again
