I did. Did not work. Don't really care actually, I'll just type my things ;)

Anyways, I think I need a better USB adapter. Booting started to fail 90% of the time, halting at a kernel panic, forcing me to reset my calc.
Plus I needed the flash drive for something else so I had to format it. But I got Nethack to work so I got that going for me which is nice :D

Strange that it didn't work, but cool that you got Nethack! Would it be possible to also get SLASH'EM?

I'm not sure if that works. Like I said, my USB connector was really loose and prone to losing connection on boot x.x and I needed the flash drive. Next time I install debian (which won't be long, because boy, this is awesome), I'll try SLASH'EM and report back :)

On a semi-unrelated side note, running off a flash drive really devours your battery <_< I messed around for maybe 45 minutes and I lost some 70% x.x

I haven't noticed significant battery drain.

It won't work as it doesn't support OTG or host mode. Supported cables have another sense line to put the USB controller into the correct mode when plugged in AFAIK.

This was also the issue for my USB adapter. My friend (who bought it) "hacked" this line in. I think the line is broken again though because the adapter doesn't work anymore when trying to USB OTG (= boot debian on nspire)

The safest way is buying an USB adapter that actually supports OTG, another thing you could try is modding your current adapter. Make sure you don't short-circuit your USB port, though.
A third option is building an OTG cable yourself.

edit: I thiiiink that USB A is OTG capable but don't quote me on that.

Shorting the power lines shouldn't be a big issue, the nspire has current limiting built-in.

Still short circuiting anything = not good. ^^
