    I bought a new Gionee M2. The phone has the capability of charging another device through the micro USB using an OTG cable. But I would like to know if I can connect a flash drive onto my phone using the same OTG cable? I have rooted my phone and tried stick mount and other similar apps. I also tried entering a new XML file android.hardware.host into permission folder. But not detecting the drive or any other device. The "charging another device" feature is working though. Is there any solution?

    Try using a file explorer like ES File Explorer. If you don't see your USB connected, it might be that your phone's kernel doesn't support USB OTG.

    I'm using Xplore file explorer. In Storage folder I see 3 folders; sdcard0, sdcard1 and usbotgdrives. But even if I connect a flashdrive, I'm unable to see it in this folder. The stick Mount always show as no device is mounted. Can I do anything with the phone's kernel to support otg?

    What type of USB stick are you using? Also what cable are you using?

    I'm using a SanDisk 8gb pen drive. Connected to a regular otg. Don't know if the cable is faulty as the charging function was working.

    Yes. It is. In some DIY, I have seen people grounding the pin 4 with pin 5 on the micro USB end. Will I have to do something like that? The cable i bought was a normal quality one which costs just Rs.60. Or will I have to make any changes in the kernel? Please tell me how to..

    No help?? Anyways I'll try after getting the official Kitkat update which is to release at the end of this month. The Gionee support had informed me that they might add the otg support in their future updates. I hope something like that would happen.

    The kernel is usually locked down, so you can't do much.

    Try using NTFS mounter instead of stick mount and see if it works.

    You gave me an idea.

    Along with your suggestion, I remembered ES File Explorer can read external drives. Try that as well.
