Hello!

Yesterday evening i managed to connect my external UMTS-Stick ( Huawei , free gift from Alice /O2 Provider in Germany ) via OTG Kabel

xxx.amazon.de/gp/product/B0090N2FBA/ref=oh_details_o05_s00_i00

to my Nexus7.

Stock Rom, Android 4.1.1, rooted.

I used the app PPP Widget. ( xxx.draisberghof.de/android/pppwidget.html )

Everything worked like a charm.

I hardly found informations about Nexus7 working with this app, so i just wanted to spread the good news.

If someone needs information about the exact hardware version of this Huawei stick, i could post information later on.

As far as i tested, all applications got working internet connection.

Greetings.

Great news. Does the app need root or will it work on an unrooted device?

Root access is mandatory....

So far with the OTG USB cable i`m able to access my pictures directly on SD-Card in my EOS 1100d Canon Camera with Sticky Mount ( Play Market ), connect a USB 3.0 NTFS 32 Gig Stick and , as described, use an external UMTS modem.

So a few good reasons for Root.

Cheers.

Root is not necessary! play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.homeysoft.nexususb.importer&feature =nav_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDNd

Greetings.

i was hoping you'd correct it that way, as i have the same stick, unlocked since last week. works perfectly with my multisim and my 5gb plan
two drawbacks, no pin support (don't like to have my sims unlocked, but meh), and disconnect doesn't work, but you can always just unplug it.

This is fly sh**
Provider is slow but I couldn't believe that this is working without doing any stuff. Just installing this widget and permitting root.
Really great!
