Q: How to make the Neo FreeRunner act as a mass storage device (memory stick, USB key, portable drive...)

A: The following script can be used

#!/bin/sh
ifdown usb0
umount /media/card
rmmod g_ether
modprobe g_file_storage file=/dev/mmcblk0p1

Reference: Petr Vanek's "usb mass media storage" message on the community mailing list

Q: How to make the Neo FreeRunner revert to USB networking?

A: The following script can be used (Keep in mind that you need to properly unmount on the host computer FIRST or risk corruption)

#!/bin/sh
rmmod g_file_storage
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /media/card
modprobe g_ether
ifup usb0

Q: Is it possible to pretend to be a USB hub, providing both g_ether and g_file_storage ?

A: Not yet. At the moment it's one gadget driver at a time, but there is a project under way to allow use of multiple gadget drivers together. See this blog posting called 'USB Composite Gadget Framework' or Linux-USB Gadget API Framework
