[Q] HTC One/CM10.1/USB OTG
I have an HTC one (ATT) that has CM10.1.3 installed with CWM Recover 184.108.40.206. The phone seems to work fine and I've been using it like this for a little over a week. Today my USB OTG cable came and I wanted to use it to transfer a few files off the phone to a USB stick and then on to another computer where I have not yet installed the HTC drivers. But the phone did not detect any drive. I looked at a few USB host helper apps and tried them out but they didn't help.
Searching through these forums for CM10.1 I saw 2 or 3 people say USB OTG doesn't work for that version, but is there a version of CM that does have USB OTG working for an HTC One?
I'm also not sure if perhaps my cable may be faulty. I rebooted into recovery with the cable and a USB stick installed and in recovery the USB stick's light did light up for a few seconds. But when attempting to mount as an external SD card it just gave an error. Funny enough when I tried to format the ext SD card, I was able to do so (I had put a GB of junk files on it before). After the drive was formatted I tried to mount it, but again I received an error. The drive is formatted as FAT32. So even if USB OTG doesn't work in CM10.1.3 shouldn't it have worked in recovery? I've googled some Youtube videos and saw a few people backing up their HTC Ones in recovery with a USB OTG cable and usb stick. Yet, I couldn't do that and of the 4 USB sticks I have handy (ranging from 256 MB to 32 GB) only the 4 GB Patriot XT stick lights up at all when connected in recovery. There is no blinking what so ever with the phone booted into CM.
If someone is using a HTC One and able to connect in recovery (or in CM), I would like to know. I'd be willing to buy a few other USB OTG cables in case mine (T&S Electronics version from Amazon) is faulty.
Thanks for any help.
