Storage [Q] I want my OTG connectivity back

Anyone have a solution for the lost OTG connectivity with Kitkat update on theSprint LG G2?
I've already upgraded to Kitkat when I noticed that my USB otg wasn't working anymore. Will it help to Downgrade back to stock Jelly Bean?
If so, can anybody tell me how? I just want my OTG back,

USB storage is enabled. I talked with LG support and they said "unfortunately the update(Kitkat) will remove the OTG feature.
.....the only thing they can do on this case is "to send a complaint about this".....this is not a guarantee of a follow up or call back, however, this may be taken into consideration for future references.

it is so frustrating. Google is killing Android with Kitkat. Any help to bring back OTG will be appreciated.

That sucks. I was about to upgrade to KK. Can someone else confirm this? @radloongm Nexus Media Importer app might help you to use OTG functions again. Its a paid app though.

OTG is working fine for me. I upgraded to KitKat. I'm typing on my full-sized keyboard right now using OTG cable. I'm able to use the mouse, thumb drive, keyboard -- no problem.

Same here. Finally tested OTG on ZVC. Working perfect.
