Perhaps OTG support could be re-implemented in the kernel. However, AFAIK the N4 is not capable of supplying +5V in OTG mode so you'd need it connected to a powered hub, which is why they removed it from the specs. I don't know if it would work unpowered at all, or if somehow the Slimport controller in the N4 kills OTG totally.

Can you not use Bluetooth to connect said controller?

LG Mako (Given away!) | HTC EndeavorU (eMMC Corruption Brick) | Barnes & Noble Ovation - (LCD Stopped working) | Motorola Olympus (Cooked itself) | HTC Bravo (Sold) | HTC Dream (Retired) | Apple iPhone 2G (Retired as a music player) | HTC Hermes (Touchscreen dead)

Free RAM is wasted RAM, foo!

Anyone know the driver for the proximity sensor? I want to disable it when I'm calling someone, and based on my research disabling the driver is the only way..
