Default USB 2.0 A Female to Micro-B Male Adapter cable supported in Milestone?

Hi,

I want to connect my pendrive/usb mouse to my milestone via USB 2.0 A Female to Micro-B Male Adapter cable. but milestone is not able to connect it. nothing happens when i connect the cable to it in its microusb port.

I tried the same in Samsung galaxy SII (unrooted) and it worked well.

I am using [ROM] CyanogenMod 7.1.5 (Android 2.3.7).
I want to know whether the milestone lacks some hardware capabilities or it depends upon ROM?

Wink Use sixaxis men!!!

Wow! mmm.... i dont think that was possible but You could try SIXAXIS to connect a joystick at least. So you can use it like a mouse or any you want without any cables. (Sorry. My english is not so good).

IIRC mounting a usb flash drive should work but only if you plug it in before you turn on your phone.

ie turn off phone, insert OTG usb adapter, insert thumb drive, turn on phone.

But if you remove it after, you will have to repeat the process. Search the dev forum.

Default USB OTG supported?

I thought USB OTG was not supported on this phone. Does it really work?

DONATE TO ME
IIRC, I think some work was done to try to compile a kernel module to enable support, but it stalled out when they realized there was voltage issues.
