Default Working Method to Read NTFS? Tried some but no luck.

I researched for ways to make 10.1 14 read any external HD with NTFS format thru OTG.
Found a couple of ways, tried and it still show me empty folder.

Tried both Stickmount and [root]Ntfs Mounter and both doesn't work. It tried both of them with my 3 HDD (256 GB SSD, 1TB and 2TB WD Passport).

I was hoping to connect it without having to reformat any of the disk to ExFAT or FAT32.
Is there any method that's working yet
Really appreciate the help. TIA.
My devices now and then:
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition)
T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Google Nexus 5
T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note II
Google Nexus 10
HTC Glacier: myTouch 4G

Hi,
There is only one working solution as I know.

You have to install TotalCommander and then also the relate USB plug-in.
The only limit is that for NTFS is read-only.

For all the other programs you find on the store for OTG management, are not working because of the restrictions made by SELinux in enforcing mode.

To solve this, you have to find a working custom kernel that sets SELinux in Permissive mode. But as far as I know there is nothing for sm-p605.

Thanks for the response. So that's why everything that I'm trying just tells me its mounted but doesnt show me anything.
I was hoping to use it as OTG storage so read-only seems pointless at this moment.

I guess we wait right Thanks again sir!

AFAIK, bindroid kernel is coming with NTFS support, limited to SM-P600 and SM-P601.
Actual phone : Nexus 5 16Go Red (old phone : Samsung Galaxy SIII)
Actual tablet : Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition SM-P600 stock rooted with xposed modules (old tablet : Samsung Galaxy Tab P7510)

Since about two days there's a new version of Stickmount, which will during the first run download additional stuff to enhance compatibility. I would suspect an Ntfs driver.

without ntfs drivers in kernel, you cannot read ntfs format...
