[Working]HOW TO TRANSFER CHARGE AND DATA BETWEEN TWO PHONES WITHOUT PC/BLUETOOTH/WIFI share and JUST Usb OTG and a USB cable

Hi guys.. Axaitechie here with a small piece of solution which I dont think many people around the world might be knowing or might be.. For those who dont know..this post if for them..extremely helpful for those who need it!

Yes if u need to transfer data between two phones like GBs of data n u u have atleast one phone that supports OTG and u been looking for pc to transfer data or been trying to use wifi share apps trust me this is a solution to npc-less transfers and EVEN U CAN BORTOW YOUR FRIENDS BATTERY CHARGE IF YOU ARE RUNNING LOW ON BATTERY!!!!!!

With just an OTG n a USB cable you CAN transfer data and battery charge between two phones!!

youl need:
A) 2 phones (atleast one with OTG support)
B)OTG connector
C)Usb cable.
D)file explorer like es file explorer

Here on il refer the phone that contains data and charge as "host" phone n to phone to be transferred as "second" phone.

If your second phone is a xperia device then go to settings ->xperia connectivity ->usb connectivity

Change the usb connectivity mode from "MTP" to "MSC"..

Steps:

1)Just connect OTG cable to host phone...

2)The second phone connect usb cable.. N the pc usb part.. Which u connect to pc...connect it to the OTG

*REMEMBER*
3)In the second phone select ur mass storage option!!

4) use file explorer (I used Es file explorer coz its the best I used)

BINGO.. On host phone u can see the memory card of second phone as "usbdisk"...plus.. The second phone will charge battery from first phone...


Worked on

my xperia Z1 as host and micromax a65 as second phone..

my xperia Z1 as host and micromax a116 as second phone..

my xperia Z1 as host and xperia M as second phone..

my xperia M as host and xperia z1 as second phone..

Well all permutations of these phones..

I have broken screen and digitizer on one phone which is locked with pattern. I would like to unlock it to get my photos from it. Is it possible to use one android as a mouse to control second android.? Phones are connected with USB cable.

Not sure exactly... But it works only in mass storage mode...media transfer mode is not detected in the host phone .. Apparently there's not work around for this...but if you are running custom ROMs on second phone..u may get an option to run it as Mass Storage ..

You can attach a USB mouse to the otg cable ...and connect it to ur phone..if ur phone supports otg..u can definitely use a mouse to use ur phone

I'll check that out then thx for the tip =3. But do you think that maybe because i used an OTG connector with a male micro usb3 host =O instead of a normal micro usb2 ? I did do an awkward connection =P And don't know if it poses a problem because on one side (through my "master" phone) i connected the male host micro usb3 OTG connector, and on the other side basic male micro usb2. (I'm gonna try using micro usb2 for the master and slave phones and i'll tell you how that goes too ;3)

Unfortunately this mouthed fails with devices that use MTP ..example wud be most Samsung phones... just tried with a grand duos n it doesn't work ... But if the ROM supports MSC transfer, then u r in for luck...

Just have a look in play store or app store, you will get see many apps to share data from one device to another.
