afaik otg works on several kernels here for example f4k kernel for aosp.

BUT, it only works afaik if the device has usb power itself cause the phone doesn't provide OTG power
Please click the thanks button under my post if you considered my post useful! Thank you.

Well, if you get the 'cheaper' S4 i950x it would have proper USB OTG support.
