Ok, so my first Tesco Hudl worked fine with OTG, however i had to replace it due to malfunctioning MicroSD slot, the new one however doesn't seem to want to work with OTG, powered or unpowered :(

 

As far as i can tell the OTG drivers seem to be missing, any ideas where i can download them or other ideas on how to fix this issue?

 

TIA

They might be included within one of the custom ROMs around here. If its the kernel that's the problem I'm sure that a user with working otg could dd their embedded kernel to an image that you could flash.

I don't suppose you could send me a copy of your OTG files and see if that fixes the problem?

I don't think there are any OTG-specific files/modules. Its either enabled or its not within the kernel.

Ok so i put stock v1.3 ROM (post 33: http://www.modaco.co...till nothing :(
about to go through the tedious process of setting it all back up again now as tesco refuse to give me another exchange... and to be honest setting it all up again is less stressful :(

Just tried it now and it doesn't detect any of the drives on either my OTG hub or cable, also would be handy for college to be able to use KB/Mouse for odds n ends as well :(

Keyboard and mouse work fine with stock and custom ROMs. I've used both wired and wireless, and work well..
