Default [Q] USB OTG on Desire X

Hi,
does anybody know, whether USB OTG is supported by Desire X? I assume it is not supported by the stock system, but can I expect the support to be added by some custom system?

Regards,
Stepan

It stands for USB on the go. It is the ability of the phone to act as USB host. So that you can connect a USB flash drive, keyboard, or mouse... to the phone.

There is an app in Google Play that allows to check your phone's capability of USB OTG or USB Host Mode, but I couIdn't test it with my Desire X, because I don't have any USB peripherals with a micro-usb connector. The app only says there are "classes" found (don't ask me what that means) that seem to support it. I couldn't see anything in the manual about it either.

The One X doesn't even have USB OTG with the kernel it uses now, but they might enable it in a future kernel update (read that somewhere).

Your best bet is to contact HTC support and ask them straight out.

I tested the app.
The Kernel is not supporting USB Hosting. (It`s only a Software issue, i think)

Hopefully the update will bring this feature.

S4 Play on MSM8225 doesn't support OTG. Just go on Qualcomm site and you can see it.

Storage A bit late....

Hahaha I am a bit late on this one, but all aspects of USB OTG are functional on the Desire X w/ stock and some custom roms. This includes storage, keyboard/mouse, gamepads and much much more. Works flawlessly, and better than the Nexus 7 2013 on Stock can manage (no usb storage support!) One of the reasons I switched to CM 11 on my Nexus.
Current Devices:
Phone: (falcon) Moto G (XT1033 AUS) (Stock) (Rooted)
Tablet: (flo) Nexus 7 FHD 2013 (AOSPA 4) (Rooted) (Franco Kernel)

Other Android Stuff:
Phone: (protou) HTC Desire X (Optus AU Variant) (AOKP) (Rooted)
Chromecast

The thing is, USB OTG works only from Android version 4.1 and newer. 4.0 has no OTG support.
Current device: Oneplus One 64 GB Sandstone Black
No support via PM! Please ask in a public thread, I'll help you as much as I can.
