    So I have moved on from my prevail, but can't imagine letting the little beast collect dust in a drawer somewhere... I had been using it as a dedicated ip security cam, but got the notion to try and go for something a little more interesting...

    I was wondering if it is possible to connect the prevail (connected to my wifi network) to an external 1 terabyte hard drive via OTG Cable, and use it as a media server?

    I posted this in the rooted section, since I imagine that the answer would require having a rooted phone...
