    I have victorious ROM and kernal and in build prop it says HDMI enabled- true. But I never checked when it was stock.

    It it's mhl enabled as far as I know. But regular mhl adapters will not work because Samsung uses the mhl adapter found in the s3. Please note: this ifs only from my research and attempt with a regular mhl adapter, I have never actually used a mhl adapter made for the s3.

    I tried the one for the s3 (11 pin). It wont plug in to the victory. One little part stops it and I didn't want to force it. Also tried the 5 pin (standard) didn't work.

    Android Forums seems to be using a redirect and that slows the page load.

    So is the consensus that this phone doesn't support MHL?

    It does. You just need the correct cable and a tv that supports mhl.

    I tried it with a 5pin MHL adapter and it does not work. If anyone has actually gotten it to work, please post a link to the MHL adapter.

    USB OTG works fine, I'm talking about the MHL-HDMI adapter. That adapter has it's own power source.

    I tried connecting the phone to my TV using an MHL connector, but it didn't work. The connector came with both, 5 pin & 11 pin tips, but none worked with the Victory.

    I tried the same with my T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S2 & it worked flawlessly!

    My conclusion: Samsung Galaxy Victory does not support MHL.

    If anyone has actually gotten it to work, please let me know.

    Any updates from anybody on this? Has anyone got their phone to work with an MHL adapter?

    I've tried on a couple TV's. Nope. It says HDMI out enabled "true" in the buildprop on my victory but I haven't gotten it to work.

    I think you got the 11 pin mhl adapter, it won't fit in the victory. Only the 5 pin one fits, but I haven't gotten one to work. I've tried a few. I got an s3 recently and tried the 11 pin, and it worked immediately.

    Yeah I tried 5 pin, 11 pin, and 11 pin with a 5 pin adapter. Nope. But a lot of apps have native screencast now, so your miracast equipped bluray player or a Chromecast and you're all set.
