    Did you root and use a custom rom and still on OTG charging?

    My reasoning is so that there is not power draw when the car is not running, really it should last several days on battery power without the car being on anyways.

    Without rooting, one or the other will work! meaning, if i enable OTG only, i can't charge the tablet which will be behind the dash, and vice-versa (if that's a word).

    I'm taking some advice from some folks at XDA to see if can patch together a cable that can be switched via relay or something but what it really need is a custom Kernel to enable OTG plus charging simultaneously.

    We'll see.

    Subscribed.

    Double check the ebay link, it's giving an error. I would like to see what adapter you refer to..

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/201062260590...84.m1497.l2649 this one maybe? It basically has a separate cable for charging that Y's off. I had planned to root mine and install a custom rom on it anyways as I didn't want all the LG bloat on it. I bought it because it's fast enough for what I want, has a screen size that I wanted, and a very nice resolution. Also NewEgg has had them on sale the past couple weeks for 120 bucks off making them 229 dollars

    Damn! That's a good price! I thought i did good on Amazon for 240.00 shipped. Maybe i should get another one so my wife will have her own to play with. LOL

    Maybe something wrong with my computer cause the link still isn't working but no big deal, i have tried damn near every cable there is.

    Waiting to see the progress on your worklog.

    Yeah I ordered one, probably be here this week sometime. I'll let you know if I can get it working. I have an OTG cable but for some reason I can't find my thumb drive to see if it's even working....lol OTG is certainly important to me as I want to hook up a large external hard drive to sync music to from my home server.

    Well I got the cable today and it's a no go. It'll show charging for about a minute or so after a drive is mounted, but then eventually the charging icon goes away.

    Yep, same here (with a different cable). We will have to hope that somebody decide to make a Kernel that supports OTG + power. Bummer! Back to the Samsung.
