Are you sure about "echo 0" and "echo device"?  Shoudln't "echo 1" and
"echo host" be there instead?

OK, thank you ! I did changes according to what you wrote and according
to dmesg messages, FR is now able to detect the devices. See messages
that showed up after I connected my flash drive:

25583.650000] s3c2410: changing usb to host
[25618.740000] usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using s3c2410-ohci and
address 11
[25618.920000] usb 1-2: New USB device found, idVendor=090c,
[25618.920000] usb 1-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2,
[25618.920000] usb 1-2: Product: Flash Disk
[25618.920000] usb 1-2: Manufacturer: USB
[25618.920000] usb 1-2: SerialNumber: FBD1004260016292

... and that's all. No partitions were detected, etc. If I connected
USBtoRS232 converter, FR detected it but device /dev/ttyUSB0 is not
generated. I have no idea what's wrong. Module for the converter is
present (pl2303) - when I load it manually (by modprobe), device ttyUSB0
appears, but can't be used. Stty complains about "inapropriate ioctl for
device" and echo "whatever" > /dev/ttyUSB0 is not transmitting a byte.

Yes, now it works! Although even if I rescan the system, files that are
no longer on the uSD card are still listed in "Documents".

It is very hard to make people to describe it better :-) I'll try to
solder that cap to GSM module.
