Has anyone tried a non-storage device (wireless mouse, etc)? Mass storage mode using OTG usually requires some sort of app to function (even when rooted) and these apps will most likely need to be re-written for 4.2, but peripherals should work without any extra software.

Could one of the lucky few with a N4 try this out with a mouse or keyboard and report?

Thanks in advance!
