Help with USB device on Tomato Shibby v129/v130

I very happily used Shibby's Tomato for a long time on my WNR3500Lv2.  To me, it is much more usable than DD-WRT.  Now I have an R7000, and want to do more with the router (particularly attach it to an FTDI usb/serial device). 

When I run "lsusb", I can see both the USB 2 and USB 3 root hubs.  If I plug a flash drive into the USB 3 port in the front, it shows up under lsusb and can be mounted.  If I plug a flash drive into the rear USB 2 port, it does not even show up under lsusb (and there are no log messages to indicate a problem).  If I plug my usb/serial device into either port, it fails to show up under lsusb (and again produces no log messages).

I would be very grateful for any suggestions.  I have currently switched to DD-WRT because I can get the usb/serial device working there, but I would much rather use Tomato.

 

Thanks!
