I've got a nexus 7 that I'm installing into a dash. I've bought an OTG Y-cable with power and a rosewill externally powered USB hub. I'm running USB-rom on the nexus 7. I plug everything in, power to the Y cable, power to the USB hub, and hub to the tablet. When I unplug the power from the USB hub it still remains powered on by either the tablet or the incoming power to the Y-cable. Is it possible the Y-cable isn't correctly wired for this setup?

There's a wiring diagram at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2113259 in with the pictures of an installation. AFAIK a USB hub will only get power via a dedicated socket and/or the host usb connection so if you've got a hub that accepts power from either source and there is a power source connected to the y cable then the dedicated hub power supply is redundant?????
