Default OTG USB

My moto g 16gb arrives tomorrow. OTG USB is very important to me. I've read that kit Kat disable the functionality. I know there are a lot a third party work around apps that get the job done but I'd prefer a kernel that does so. Is anyone aware of one? I can't find it listed anywhere. Thank!

OTA in KitKat is natively integrated by Motorola. No app needed. There is setting for it in storage settings.

Depends on which variant you have - it seems that the single sim variants don't have native support for OTG USB Storage under 4.4.2 (they do for other OTG USB pheripals), but as another poster mentioned it looks like an OTA may be on the way to rectify this.

German OTA is already in the wild and the UK should come soon too.

If your device is rooted ... then in my opinion ...(if it should be a third party app) best thing is stickmount ..

Using the dual sim XT033, the Kitkat update retains the USB OTG functionality and has storage dismount and format options in the storage menu. You can now even write on the mounted storage now.

One word of caution. USB OTG works on FAT32 (files less than 4GB) but not for NTFS. For NTFS you'll have to root. Maybe a more experienced user can tell us what Linux partitions are supported without root for filesizes >4GB.

Anyone has an idea about using USB Mass Storage with Moto G ? I mean mount internal storage for example in Total Commander as drive like pendrive.
