Hello. I have two questions about otg features. I have tested the first one, and asking the second one because of curiosity.
Note: Please tell me if any missing or needed information. I can also make a deep search in web and try to find all available info (such as datasheets, drivers, similar devices/phones , tests with similar devices/phones).
1) Can we use "external wifi adapters" ? Does kernel support it?
OTG recognizes the device but i am unable to enable it. Some guides didnt help, but i have gathered a good source of informations with searches (such as drivers, used devices, supported chips/hardware, linux drivers, packages for kernels and a little about adding drivers to kernel).
For a super-cool-killer-project i was thinking to use an external,usb wifi adapter. I did some searches and found out that some tablets and kernels support it and many newer kernels has this feature. Using an external wifi adapter would make a big difference in certain circumstances.
As for my situation, an external wifi adapter with high range would make an AWESOME remote controller, and it would be amazingly cheap (i am making a semi-autonomus(?) drone
and ideos x5 is a big part of it)
- My usb external wifi adapter is a mass produced product with a local brand printed on it. It has a Ralink RT3070 chip on it.
Note: i can try another adapters from local stores to test.
- I am using a Y shaped otg cable to supply enough power.Cable is home-made.
- I have no modifications installed on the X5, latest verison of this ROM.
- After connecting device dmesg : http://goo.gl/RJnPWR
Note: I read some and says ; usb abstract devices, usb modems, etc ... It also says at the end that idvendor=148f idproduct=5070 is not supported. Also insuffisicient battery alert suprised me, i had external power supply with y cable.
- I have tried this tutorial for Nexus7 : https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...exus-7-android
• I saw nothing extraordinary while performing that commands, after dhcpcd it couldnt find the wlan1.
- Also i read these a little but seemed confusing and time consuming
, installing a linux distribituon on device seems to help using wifi adapters as i understand.

• Compat-wireless is a package which contains the development and stable versions (pulled from the kernel's git repository) of the in-kernel wireless drivers and the mac80211 wireless stack. New packages are released pretty much every day.
- Existing linux wireless drivers : http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers
Will try to test one of the stated chips.

- About people having problems with the same chip on linux distrubitions:
2) This one would just be a luxury (and disrespect)
but is USB,OTG DAC (music playback, sound from otg) supported? I have seen some devices and i really got excited about it ( i am also an audiophile on a budget
Note: I have mostly seen galaxy s3 and s4's. But if it's usb, it should be about kernel and cpu, right?

Thank you for everything , I do try to press "Thanks" button as much as i can.
I have always wanted to support your expenses but i dont seem to afford current differenties
