Hi all! I would like to buy a USB OTG(on the go) cable for my mobile. I tried with the OTG Cables available in stores. But they ain't working. I found out that our mobile do not support OTG. The male part of cable has one pin extra compared to the original USB cable. So I just wanted to know if we could but it online or from the store. And yes, I live in India ; Mumbai. I had an idea of buying a female to female cable and connecting one side to USB and other with USB cable to phone. Thanks in advance. :thumbup::thumbup:

Thanks but I'm using a custom kernel! Should I buy a USB HUB and connect it?

Dont waste ur money. Wait till some dev implements OTG HOST support. Till IMO buying a usb otg is waste. I own one and I use it on my galaxy nexus but it doesnt works on our grand

i read the same article, the article explained how to use your old charger cable as otg cable or manually creating an otg cable at home.

i checked and verified by opening my own otg cable and found the same circuit as the circuit shown in that image.

i was wondering if the phone is not sending any power to the cable/pen drive.

dude, i guess you are taking about this article tech.firstpost.com/news-analysis/how-to-make-your-own-usb-otg-cable-for-an-android-smartphone-29503.html

i read this complete article and checked my own otg, i found it as shown in the image/article mentioned by you.

i believe if one want to short the pins, it can be done at phone's external plug end.

Please help me to start with the otg development.

i will be thankful to you :)

as it is a kernel's thing as per my research till now.
and i am sorry about your grand may its soul rest in peace.:crying:

    Maybe the hardware itself not supporting USB host....
