Does the Nexus 5 support host mode and charging, simultaneously? Does it need a kernel patch? Is the patch available yet?

Thanks.

Thanks.

I'm running franco kernel 3.4.88-franco.Kernel r54. I received my OTG+Charging cable just the other day and it worked without any additional changes. However host charging seems to be a bit slower than just a direct charging (with my cable, the device doesn't seem to go into AC charging mode).

Turn on fast charge. You need a kernel tweaker app like Trickster Mod.

Just enabled it in the franco app, will let my phone discharge some and see if that does the trick

Edit: This doesn't seem to have helped any. Half the time the phone doesn't even seem to recognize the charge from the OTG Y cable, or the charge voltage through the cable is only enough to mitigate some of the discharge. The cable only seems to be able to give about 400mA when it does want to charge. I think the cable is bad.
