I have found a way to use otg in s3 neo plus without the need of y cable or external power source. Otg device will get power from your s3! First plug in your otg cable (use normal otg cable not y cable) don't connect anything in the other side of otg cable for now. The go to terminal and execute this commant in super user mod.
echo "1" >> /sys/kernel/debug/regulator/8226_smbbp_otg/enable
you will hear a sound. Wait 2 second.now connect your usb device to otg cable. And you otg device will get power from phone. And when you are done using otg execute this code in super user mod
echo "0" >> /sys/kernel/debug/regulator/8226_smbbp_otg/enable
Don't forget to execute this code or your phone will not charge while connected to charger.
And i used otg using stock kernel.
If you face any problem or this doesn't work reply me i will try to help.
And if it works then reply and let others know.

yep it did worked, i just tested in my sgs neo + GT-I9301I running PHN latest Stock Firmware.

Thanks a lot for all the work and effort coz it's an awesome things that we'll be able to do that without external power.

the only thing is that, it's only ES FILE EXPLORER that can manage to find and give me access to my flash drive ... but the stock file manager, mixplorer, root explorer, don't detect the device at all !!!! so i was wondering if there is something special i should do.

otherwise for other non storage devices (mouse, keyboard, game-pad) get detected automatically
