    Is there any way to get USB-OTG support on the Lucid? It doesn't seem to work out of the box and I was wondering if it was possible to enable it through root or anything.

    I am looking into this myself and according to USB Host Diagnostics it is not supported on our phone.

    However, with some further investigation, the feature may be there, so I will let you know what I find.

    OTG is enabled in the stock kernel, not many if anything is enabled to be supported tho. ;)

    So kernel work needs to to add support for stuffz ;)

    That is what I thought...

    And to tweak the kernel we have to unlock the bootloader. Man, I never thought a mid-level device would be this locked down.
