Exclamation [REQUEST] Can we use 3g usb internet dongle with OTG cable to get internet on N5 ?

I have found link for nexus 7 and a google app

I tried that on my nexus 5 ( stock rom 4.4.2 rooted) but just after connecting the USB dongle with OTG cable, I got FC.
StickMount is also installed in my N5

Can somebody help me on this issue ?
Is there any alternative way for nexus 5 ?

Thank you

I think its a matter of having the correct drivers implemented into the kernel in order for your phone to make sense of a 3g dongle stick. And since this is not really needed by most people so no one bothered with it.

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

nexus 5 | SlimKat | ElementalX kernel | Philz Touch Recovery

I do NOT reply to support queries over PM.
