Bad news for those who enjoy fiddling with their smartphones. And we just got word that the Nexus 4 does not support USB OTG , however much they put in the users manual latest Nexus device . We all know the guys from xda-developers, responsible for cooking the best ROMS for our devices. Well this time they have been responsible for confirming the bad news.
have tried to connect a device via USB OTG and indeed the Nexus 4 not detected . Interestingly Analogix ANX7808 port has OTG support, as reflected in the specifications of the Port: “USB host, device or OTG data passes through by default”
To finish the play, the Nexus 7, which has more limited support by default, if you detect some devices. A blunder by Google that has no excuse to come off by default OTG support in its new smartphone star.
We will give the benefit of the doubt and assume that it is simply a bug and that the guys next updates Google and LG illogical shall solve this compatibility issue.
