Anyone knows any method to set USB host mode (OTG mode) when not having a ID/Sense pin on the cable?

Be it with some sort of "echo 1 > /sys/something" command
Or a ADB command
Or a ready made app?
Or anything?

I did find this app, which seems to do this, but it is just stuck on my tablet.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...TG_patch&hl=en

The reason for this request is that I cannot find any of those "magnet cables" that connect all 5 pins. Always only 4.
And I want my car-tablet to be connected with a magnet cable.

Many thanks

If the device does not have the hardware to support OTG, it won't work no matter what you try.

If it has the hardware but does not have the software, it will require building a new kernel with OTG support implemented in the kernel, or if the device is rooted, you can try something like the Stickmount app to force enable OTG support(the app still requires the device to have the hardware to support OTG, otherwise, it won't work).
