[Q] OTG & RCCDroid with Sony a58 camera
this is my first post in this awesome community
Maybe some guys here own a Sony SLT camera called 'Alpha 58' (or short a58) which is an incredible camara. For it's performance it has an incredible price tag and hence I own it. But there is one missing feature - the infrared sensor for controlling this piece of hightec remotely.
But fortunately there is a guy who developed an app called 'RCCDroid' which gave me new hope.
(please type it in google, the server prevents my post from external links)
This app uses the OTG USB interface, modern phones very often have. Except our beloved Nexus 4.
OK, now don't throw your hands up in horror: I've searched in the development threads of these brilliant OTG kernel patcher like Justvarshney and Ziddey. I've tried their kernels and brought OTG to live. Which actually means I brought it to live in case of mounting an USB stick.
Cause IT DOESN'T WORK WITH RCCDROID IN COMBINATION.
I have CM11 on my device, OTG works fine. But only a few kernels let the camera recognize my phone.
For now I have Francos r206 kernel flashed, which was patched from Justvarshney and then released just today.
I'm sure I have the right equipment. The y-cable, the external power..
And in the beginning it looks right.
I connect these stuff together. Switching the camera on starts RCCDROID automaticly. Also the cam (in PC remote mode) display says there is a remote control connected. However I can't give the camera signals. Touching the buttons stays inoperable.
Maybe I'm still using the wrong kernel?
Maybe I have an incompatible ROM?
The developer don't even gave me a respond. Sadly it's the only app which can do this. And however the app is quite new and feels beta like (the homepage as well) it's a really nice try to give a58 users a cool remote control.
Is there anybody out there who is experienced with this problem??
