OTG Hardware or Kernal?

I am too new to this to know which is more likely, but I can add some data about my Tab3 7.0(SM-T210R) on v4.1.2m (kernal July 18 2013) :
- I am using an OTG adapter and setup that has worked with other Android phones and it does not work with the stock ROM/kernal.
- The stock ROM/kernal does have some support for the file system, as the /mnt and /storage directories both show "UsbDrive A" ... up to F are in the filesystem.
- There is no indication in the Setting Storage menu for the USB drives. I have seen these USB drives on a TAB3 8 and 10 inche models.
I doubt it is due to hardware, as why would Samsung order different parts for one model than another?
I suspect it is disabled so people have to buy up to the 8 inch, but I LIKE the size of the 7 inch.
I also think it might have been stripped out of the RON/kernal so to save space, as the 7 inch is only 8 GB.
Hopefully Jamison904 or someone who has loaded the InFamious ROM can let us know if it works on the 7 inch.
Anyone tried it?
