DIY USB host converter cable

Quite a lot Windows Mobile devices supporting USB-host, but for only a few an adapters or appropriate cables from the manufactures are available. As these devices support USB-Slave as well here is the way to convert the USB male connector (used as slave e.g. for ActiveSync with the PC) to a USB-host female in order to connect accessories (keyboard, mass-storage devices, etc). According to Wikipedia the configuration of the pins shouldn’t differ too much for slave and host mode.
