Have u ever wondered if u could just access the files on your flash drive, connect a bigger keyboard because the on –screen keyboard is too small or just prefer the freewill u enjoy using your system mouse. All of this can be done now on your android phone via a means called USB OTG (USB On-The-Go) in this mode your android devices micro usb port becomes a high voltage usb 2.0 port were u could connect any compatible usb device.(i.e mouse,keyboard,flash drives,xbox/ps3 game pad, usb hubs e.t.c)
Enough of the introduction let’s get to making of the cable already
- A normal micro usb cable.
- A female usb to male usb cable( well its only the female u need anyway)
- A soldering iron
- Blade or Cutter
- A pair of tweezers
The major cable we need to expose is the black cable connector, Once exposed we test if your phone can access the OTG mode but connecting the black connector to ground (ground/earth is just any metal part on the cable shell) with a pair of tweezers.
Once u get a notification saying “usb connector connected” on your android device that means you are on the right track. Now is the time to test your soldering skills (WARNING!!!!! IF U HAVE NEVER ATTEMPTED TO SOLDER BEFORE PPPPLLLLEEEEAAAASSSSEEEE ASK FOR ASSISTANCE OR SEEK EXPERTS THAT CAN HELP YOU SOLDER IT)
All u need do at this point is to cut your micro-usb cable at the base of it where u have the usb male
Connect the usb female to it color to color that is red-red, green-green,black-black,white-white
Tape it up with anyhow you like it and ENJOY
