I plan to do more experiments and change the circuit to switch to USB mass storage or webcam mode only if USB data lines are wired to a real USB host. It is not so elegant as firmware change, but my camera would be fully charged after car ride recording aswell.
After this first step my camera never switches to USB mass storage nor webcam modes.
I think this is very interesting! I checked out your site and I´m waiting for you to do some more finds on this matter. Please keep us updated!
