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.

You do realize that Nexus 7 has different hardware, right? It's because of lack of driver support AFAIK. Nexus 7's can use this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ghof.pppwidget along with some kernel mods to use dongles which we can't!

Because it makes sense to support it on a tablet with no sim card slot.. Why would devs waste time developing support for an external sim card slot if it has a built in sin card slot?
