OTG not working with firmware (G800FXXU1ANJ2) exactly same as yours.

But I would recommend to safe your data before, just in case flashing the kernel fails.

Why should we suffer an inferior phone when the OTG is there and just needs switching on! So Id have to find a Kernel with the OTG enabled? Or do you have one?

Thanks so much for your help

I already built a kernel with OTG support for the G800F. I will post the link and some notes as soon as I can open a new thread.

The processor also depends also support OTG? (Qualcomm - Exynos)

If you already rooted your G800H you could check which USB switch is built-into your device. Connect to your device via ssh or adb shell as root. Then connect an OTG cable (with a keyboard, mouse, ... plugged in) with your G800H. On the shell execute "dmesg" and search for lines with "OTG", "OTG DETECTED", "muic-sm5502", "muic" or "5502". If you have lines with "muic-sm5502" then at least you have the same USB-switch built-in. You can also put (parts of) the dmesg output in some pastebin and post the link here. Then I can have a quick look at it.

Cool
hello, sorry for asking, but...

i have a g800f (normal s5mini) with firmware g800fxxu1ang7, no updates since start. i have flashed this firmware and rooted with cf. but i miss the otg-option, so what to do and what are the experiences so far?
can i flash your kernel to my handy or do i have to flash first a special firmware? do i lose my settings etc. and have to set up the handy after flashing again? what if i want to go "back" for e.g. i recognize that your kernel has some side effects that i dont want do?
sorry for asking, but im not sure about flashing, actually my handy works like a charm but i want to have the otg.feature. btw...if the otg is enabled after flashing what when the handy falls in to water? at usb-connector should now be 5volt which is sure not good in water..maybe this is the cause why samsung disabled it - or was ist maybe of the android 4.4. rules (heard otg should no longer be supported)

pls...lighten my darkness
