I am interested in using gadget mode on the Pi Zero to enable a network connection via micro USB lead with out a micro USB to ethernet adapter. I have used Andrew Mulholands excellent guide (http://blog.gbaman.info/?p=791) to get this working on the latest Raspbian Jessie Lite OS (May 2016). However I am struggling with this on OSMC, I followed the same steps and it boots but doesn’t display as a USB Ethernet device on my PC and after rebooting with a USB Ethernet adapter plugged in the Zero no longer picks up a DHCP lease, I don’t currently have a USB to TTL cable so I am struggling to troubleshoot.
I am currently testing by connecting to my Windows 10 PC which works with Raspbian.
So couple of questions:
Has anyone tried this and got it working?
Do I need to follow Andrews’ old guide (http://blog.gbaman.info/?p=699) and compile a new kernel with the correct modules installed?
Can anyone provide any troubleshooting tips when you can’t connect to OSMC, i.e. no keyboard, mouse or network connection?
For those wondering why use gadget mode, I want to use two Pi Zeros running OSMC connected to a Pi server as an in car entertainment system for the kids whilst minimising cables and equipment needed.
