Is it possible to get the USB OTG cable to work on a ls970? I bought one and can't seem to get any devices to work. From what I understand, the phone is missing a 5v output and only a kernel can get OTG to work?

If this is the case, could someone please help me get in the right direction on getting this to work, or if its even worth it.

Rom: SuperNexus 2.0
Kernel: 3.4.0-gee_mako-dev

Regards,

Regards,

You are absolutely correct. The Nexus4 doesn't have otg support built in, but they solved it by adding support to a custom kernel and using a y-cable to get over the 5v output issue. Sadly, it looks like no one has accomplished this yet for us. I'm not sure on the specifics but every thread where someone was trying it for our lgog looks abandoned without any reason. I'm curious about this as well and that's the info I have been able to find.

Could be bad - but it's at least a starting place. Modify it to somehow work for us since our chipsets are so similar......

Yeah, I don't know jack about kernels but I would like to learn. Unfortunately time doesn't come easy for me.
