libhid-detach-device - Man Page

simple tool to take away control over a HID from the kernel HID driver's


libhid-detach-device dead:beef


libhid-detach-device removes the device identified by the ID string (as output by lsusb) from under the kernel HID driver's control. Subsequently, programmes using libhid can access the HID's descriptors from user-space (and lsusb -vvv can give information about the HID usages).
