OTG features mostly on Any Android Device *


How to bring OTG feature on any android device of course  its based on hardware but many mobile phones not coming with OTG enabled by the stock roms but you can made them to be used on the same device by flashing the any advanced custom roms with root access.

* This is only for rooted device.

I will not be held responsible for any damage to your device. Do not use for a long time, you may risk burning the device chip/motherboard due to the voltage supply in host mode.

What is OTG ?

USB On-The-Go, often abbreviated USB OTG, is a specification that allows USB devices such as digital audio players or mobile phones to act as a host, allowing other USB devices like a USB flash drive, mouse, or keyboard to be attached to them."
