[Q] USB Host with Charging
Alright. I exhausted both Google and the forum search trying to find an answer for this but so far have come up with nothing.
When you plug in a flash drive via OTG, a popup appears in the notification bar explaining that the phone is in USB host mode and unable to charge. I have confirmed this by trying to use an OTG Y adapter and, even with nothing plugged into the female USB, the same notification is present and no charging light appears.
My question is whether or not it is possible to fix this with some sort of kernel patch or if this is some kind of hardware limitation. My HTC Evo 3D was able to charge while hosting a flash drive with an OTG Y when using stick mount while my Nexus 7 required a kernel patch to be able to do so.
Is this doable on the HTC One? I plan on using a USB stick for playing games rather than filling the internal storage but being unable to charge simultaneously really limits the play time if this is the case.
Thanks for the help and hopefully my searches didn't miss some obvious answer to this.
