Kindle Touch has hardware USB host (USB OTG, that's it) support, it's lack of software support in kernel from default firmware that ruins all ATM. And Onyx M92 doesn't have USB host support in default firmware either.

So, this means that if we put time and energy into kernel hacking, we might get USBhost mode in Kindle Touch, right?

And on Kindle Paperwhite 2013 too? Would be nice to add an external USB adapter on it.

PW2013 is built on another SoC, so I can neither confirm, nor deny it.

...and as the PW, especially so the PW2, is hard to debrick, I guess that people will be a bit reluctant to play with exchanging kernels...

Agreed - neither paperwhite is a good experimentation target.
