A lot of people have been wondering if the Galaxy S4 mini supports USB OTG. Officially, it doesn't. We are are all pretty much upset about the fact that we do not get any USB OTG support with this phone, considering its high price, it's a shame to have this feature leftout.

A member from xda forums called sekil has built this stock kernel for the GT-I9192 and claims that it has USB OTG support. The kernel is based off the Galaxy S4 sources and it is the first to have USB OTG support for the Galaxy S4 mini.

But, there is a slight issue. The phone will not provide power for the connected gadget so you would need to use an external power supply or an OTG cable that comes with an additional power connector.


The kernel still seems to be on a testing stage, so there is no warranty if all will go well. Please flash it and use it at your own risk! Neither the developer nor S4MiniArchive will be responsible for any damages caused to your phone. Flash strictly on GT-I9192 only (if you are planning to)!
