Samsung Galaxy S2 USB OTG demo

2150 ratings | 1478325 views
Don't forget to check out www.clove.co.uk for more content! UPDATE: Some USB mice are now reported to be working! Will update soon with more information! Demo of USB OTG in Samsung's Galaxy S2 - seems generic USB OTG cables will work (mine came from here: http://tiny.cc/os3s1 ), so no need to wait for Samsung's overpriced ones. Quick demo of bluetooth keyboard and mouse connections also. Video recorded on a Samsung Galaxy S, using a Nokia DT-22 attachment to connect to a Gorillapod. Two video segments edited together using the 'Video Maker' app onboard the SGSII. Unfortunately despite using a tripod there is a bit of shake from whenever I leant against the table. EDIT: I wonder if the one dislike on here is from GSMarena, because I beat them to this! ;p

How do you use it with USB Wireless WiFi Adapter? How do you turn off internal WiFi and turn on external USB Wireless WiFi Adapter?

O Galaxy S tem OTG ou não

Hi- Thanks for your nice video. I think that not all Galaxy S2's are equal. What is the exact model number of the one you demonstrated OTG on? Thanks in advance

HI Murray Good clear advice but what about how to download pics etc to the device. I have just acquired a SanDisk OTG Dual USB drive. I would really like to know how to download all my vids, pics and some other matter onto device and then I can plug into PC for uploading. I saw that this is the better way to transfer this info. Any hints that you will demo this? Ta

Any idea where I can find a cable that connects from an S2 to a female micro-usb? (so male-male)
Sam Ngiam (4 years ago)
What is that cable named?
RRR999ish (4 years ago)
+Tan Hsaw Jiun If it's a male micro usb cable and a usb female port at the end its good and the size of the cable doesn't matter . Mine is smaller than the video and more useful because you can always keep it in your pocket .
Tan Hsaw Jiun (4 years ago)
+RRR999ish Mine is smaller its like 1.5 cm it shaped like a android bot.Is it male?
Nickolas Lormand (4 years ago)
+RRR999ish damn. you solved my problem but now I have the wrong cable and no time to get a new one
RRR999ish (4 years ago)
The name is a usb cable host on-the-go ( OTG ) , if you find this cable in the market YOU HAVE TO ABSOLUTELY VERIFY if it is an OTG cable and not a simple micro to female usb ( physically it's the same but the inside of the micro usb is quite different to allow the phone to give some power by the cable to power up the usb flash drive for example to make it work and be powered ( same for any devices , ps3 controller , mouse , keyboard and so on.... ) , unless this , it's impossible if it's not an OTG one .. so keep your eyes open ;) ) And don't spend your money for nothing !!   remember ! OTG on the go host usb cable

Hello, great video. Are you able to move files from the SII to the USB drive in order to free up space on the phone?
Takuya Kousaka (5 years ago)
I`ve been watching your videos lately, i know this all is not fake. i used otg myself too. on side note. thats is a pretty fast reply, i haven`t watched the whole video yet xD
Murray Winiata (5 years ago)
None of it, nothing in my channel is faked and this is easily verifiable with a simple Google search.
Takuya Kousaka (5 years ago)
Which part of this is fake
Murray Winiata (5 years ago)
Seriously, what kind of idiotard are you? A quick check on Google will show you this is not faked. I'm sorry if you're experiencing phone envy here because your iPhone can't do this stuff, but outing yourself as a muppet who can't even do a basic fact check before making false accusations isn't helping you.

If you mean Root the Note 1, then no, you shouldn't have to do that. Hub may need to be externally powered to work however.
Murray Winiata (5 years ago)
It should.

FYI - My Nexus 7 tablet will read an external HDD as long as it's USB 3.0 and not 2.0. Also I found a great utility call Swissknife that easily allows you to format NTFS drives to FAT32 with ease. Thanks,

Yes, check my Note 2 connectivity demo :)

this is bad ass i dident know that you could do this
Ty Hurd (5 years ago)
Probably a bad OTG cable (I've gone through several of them). Try this cables, seems to be the best so far: amazon.com/Electronics-Micro-USB-OTG-Cable/dp/B005GGBYJ4 Also, try the "Stick Mount" app, that may help.

My USB OTG used to work, but after upgrading to 4.0.4 it just stopped working, I just can't get it to work anymore. I am still using the same flash drive.

Hi, I bought 2 such cables ( but not the same as you have as its sold out) and the phone wont recognize the cable. I run on a samsung galaxy s gingerbread. I dont understand why it wont recognize it, I also tried 2 usb otg apps to mount it in but still it wont recognize it. Any suggestions please? I want this so badly to work
Barrak Meddhia (5 years ago)
i need help please i want to connect android to microcontroller is this feasble ? some source code or what i need to do this
Murray Winiata (5 years ago)
Two likely problems, first, it probably requires more power than the phone can give (an externally powered USB hub can fix that problem), and secondly it may not be formatted Fat32 (it has to be).
Kumar Shantanu (5 years ago)
Hi, Thanks for posting this video. I am able to connect mouse and Pend drive easily. How can I connect my external hard disk using OTG . While connecting to laptop it do not require power so I was expecting it to conncet.
Murray Winiata (5 years ago)
No, it does not require Root. If it is not working, and the OTG cable is genuine, then it may be a regional carrier limitation.
0j0nn (5 years ago)
There is no need to root your phone to use this feature. Your flash drive might be too big/isn't in FAT.
Christopher Barnes (5 years ago)
Does this work on SGS2 without rooting? I've bought an OTG cable and its definitely powering my USB flash drive (the light comes on) but I cannot access it. I'm beginning to think that I must be missing something, any ideas?

My Logitech M305 wireless mouse is working with my S2 perfectly :) I just plug in the nano reciever to the otg cable that's it..
Murray Winiata (5 years ago)
iGo Ultraslim Stowaway bluetooth keyboard, sadly no longer made. They occasionally pop up on Ebay, but tend to be pricey when they do (the Dell-branded ones like the one I have were available quite cheaply when they were still being made). There are alternatives out there though - Samsung, Sony, Logitech all make ones that will work.
Murray Winiata (5 years ago)
Usually PS3 controllers only work if they are genuine.
Murray Winiata (5 years ago)
Possibly not, I see GSMArena does not list USB OTG as a specification for the S+. Having said that there are custom kernels for the Galaxy S i9000 that enable it, so there may be similar kernels out there for the S+ also.
