Hi,

I have the lte version xt1524 (surnia) and using current cm12.1 nightly. In settings > storage menu I also do not find any sign of usb otg, although stock rom supports it.

Can usb otg be implemented in surnia cm12.1?

Your phone lacks otg support

Just by flashing a custom rom or using any file explorer will not give you otg support.Your device should have otg hardware support

Did you tried ES FILE EXPLORER (it has an internal option to mount usb stick, but very buggy) or chainfire's stickmount??

StickMount or ES File Explorer do not work.
StickMount says something like "mount command busy". ES File Explorer has a folder "usbdisk" in "storage" but it is empty when otg connected.

When I use stock rom USB otg works correctly.

Any other ideas?

Usb otg definitely works on cm12.1

Is there anyway to make otg work in cm 12.1

At first i had the same issue the usb folder wont show up even though i used es file explorer bt then in the app after opening the side menu there's this tab called as : local in this tab you'll find usbstorage. Click on it and done!
But make sure the pendrive led is glowing! Cz most of the usb otgs have loose connection problems!

Well i use pac-rom...this has the same ui as cm12.1 except the fact that it is based on cm12.1 also it has less bugs than cm12.1 n sms works fine without any errors in pac-rom! Also u could try using other messaging apps like textra or Google messenger!
Or just visit this link! You might find some potential solutions here! http://forums.androidcentral.com/samsung-galaxy-note-4/578595-can-only-send-mms-sms-fails.html
