Hi ong1997,

 

Thanks for that....

 

 

Do we need a special cable to do this?

 

What is the name of the cable/connector?

 

 

Thanks,
Eljun

I just tried USB OTG cable with 1TB HDD and it works. I just installed the one shared by xfahim here http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-go/OTG-cable-doesn-t-work/m-p/296674/highlight/false#M4593. Check it out guys.

 

And what excites me is how to use it with mouse or keyboard. Any idea?

Those interested in using USB OTG for mouse and keyboard should also install this app from play store (USB OTG Helper).

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.shajul.usbotg

 

Important: requires root access.

 

I did some fun time with it myself showing off to my co-workers. Grinning Face Grinning Face

 

So here is what I did.. (pre-req ROOT PHONE)

1 Installed the app above 

2. Connect USB hub.
3. Connect USB mouse to hub

4. Connect USB keyboard to hub

 

and viola you have a laptop-like Xperia Go  Slightly smiling Face Slightly smiling Face I was amused and amazed. Grinning Face Grinning Face

 

Hope this helps. Grinning Face Grinning Face
