    Hi everyone,

    I have OG Motorola droid A855. I'd like to use the dslr controller app on it, but it doesn't have native OTG (usb host) functionality. I'm running KFazz's CM9 ROM. I tried using a usb Y cable (One female and 2 males) with power from the usb port on my laptop but I cant get it to recognize itself as USB host. I have seen the micro USB dongle hack, but since that was so long ago, I'm wondering if someone has built a ROM or a kernel which would make the micro usb on the droid usb otg compatible. I have used this same setup with a different CM9 on the HP touchpad and it works, I can even connect a mouse to the touchpad. I'd really appreciate any input :):)

    Hello and welcome to the site :hello:.

    Sorry for the late reply. And I don't even have the whole answer, but I'm going to venture that it could be a hardware limitation in the Droid.
