Interesting. I used to be much more of a computer/electronics geek. Don't keep up anymore.

With mini and micro it's much less obvious, the connector and jack are just shaped slightly different. There are even on-the-go ports which can act as either host or device depending on what you plug into it (the phone's port is almost certainly one of these, it can act as a device when you plug it into a computer, or as a host when you plug a controller into it). You don't want to get the wrong adapter and accidentally plug two host ports into each other, for example, or they'll both be trying to power each other.
Excellent. That is good to know. Now I'll have to find out what OS I can run in my android phone (S3) that will be compatible with rom raider/ecu flash. Thanks for enlightening me
