Hi all, i have just installed the mod for OTG, it work great and i can mount any usb storage =) But now i want to use the original XBOX360 gamepade, the same i use for PC, on my nexus 4. If i plug it in the OTG cable the light in the middle of the gamepad start blinking but nothing happen, it doesn't work =( What i should do?

Is it a wired or wireless controller?
I believe goog added native support for the wired one around HC 3.1/3.2,
but they never added support for wireless ones.

He said its the wired one.
I have no idea if it works. But maybe you can find something in settings/language&input ?

I never got my 360 controllers to work even under Windows so I wouldn't expect too much, haha.

Unless you're running win95, all you need are the drivers.
There's downloadable drivers for xp/vista/7, it's pre-included in 8/8.1.
It might be pre-included in 7, but it's been years since i used it.

Android does include the key mapping profiles for 360 controllers, there shouldnt be any additional settings options for it. But i've never had a wired controller to test it with.

It should automagically map it so that it follows the android default mapping for controllers.

Nexus 4 does not support USB OTG without a kernel hack and external power for the device. Also, the drivers are preinstalled on windows 8, previous OSs need an installer

I dunno how I missed that. It should work then... The controller might need its own power though

Yea I know apparently they are supposed to work under windows. Never did for me though (xp, 7) no matter which drivers and methods I used.
