Exclamation [Q] OTG support on BETA 4?

dear paranoid android users and developers,

I've made a fresh (and clean) install of newest BETA 4 on my Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013 (Wi-Fi) and encountered a small problem... I cannot seem to get StickMount to work... none of my pendrives that worked on previous versions (the ones before SuperSU was switched to Superuser) seem to show up in any file explorers...

also, when I ran the USB Host Diagnostics, I got a result in the Root API section: N/A... therefore, I'm thinking something is not right on the Superuser side...

I would be oh so thankful if someone could help with coming up with a solution!

P.S. I'm posting a screenshot of the USB Host Diagnostics as attachment. the same result shows up on Nexus 5.

try USB OTG Helper
I don't know if it will work but its what I used when I was on a different ROM, I'll check later and see if it still works.

I just tested it. OTG works Perfectly on PA beta 4. If you are using an external HDD make sure its getting powered.

On which device did You manage to do it? And with help of 3rd party apps, or just with the system in its own?

Also... Stock kernel or custom one?

Cheers!

Htc one x. Custom kernel but the kernel doesn't do anything for otg. And only used USB OtG Helper. Just plug the OTG cable and the USB device in and then open otg helper then plug the otg cable into the phone and wait a few seconds and then mount.

on GNexus, with PA Beta4, stock kernel: it works from the start, without 3-party apps.

the only thing it doesn't work is when I unmount (from "settings>storage": is there any other way to do it?) it keeps a permanent notification saying "Removed USB storage. Insert new media" that won't go away. Eventually it does, don't know how, why and when.

cheers
