I think we all need to be *very* careful with how we define and use our terms. I just tested my XT1032 with the official KitKat OTA applied, and "OTG" absolutely does work. I tested it both with a USB keyboard as well as a USB audio DAC, and both things worked perfectly right out of the box.
I *suspect* what you meant is that you couldn't make USB external storage (hard drive, flash, SD card reader, etc.) work. I didn't try that. But "OTG" only refers strictly to the phone's ability to act as a USB host, and nothing more. It makes no claims about which USB devices it supports or has drivers built-in for. If you can't make external storage work, then say you can't make external storage work. But let's not confuse others by telling them that "OTG" as a whole doesn't work when it most emphatically does. Oftentimes, for other phone models, OTG as a whole absolutely doesn't work at all (meaning you cannot use ANY USB devices with it, period), and making the OTG part work on such phones is (more than) half the battle, assuming it is even possible. After you clear the OTG hurdle, you then start working on supporting specific kinds of USB devices, such as storage.
