Default [Q] USB Peripherals not recognized by Tab 4 7.0

Anyone else having this issue? My Tab 4 7.0 does not recognize any peripheral plugged into it using the OTG cable. I've tried a mouse, keyboard and both a powered external HDD and unpowered usb thumb drive. These peripherals do work with my Note 2 so I know it's not the cable.

Default Kernel limitation

Hi, I have a SM-T230 and I tried to plug flash drives and HD and nothing works. I think this is a kernel limitation and flash a new kernel will resolve this problem, but I dont know which kernel is compatible.

I think a custom kernel on the 7.0 is impossible, it has what is suspected a combination recovery/kernel, as found by chainfire
