I know that CM supports USB OTG by default without the need to flash another kernel or use stickmount app. And also it charges the phone when I connect my usb 3.0 HDD with additional power to the USB. But why can't other ROM developers implement this option?

Using franco from last 3 months and i haven't seen a post with bricks.. But having a nexus and bricking it? ... Never had problems with franco and i think it's the most used kernel here at XDA..

This is all i plug in with no power source and no extra cable/wires.
Stickmount pro
Root explorer pro
Pro versions just foe the extras and supporting the devs



Under the white cap is the micro USB
