Re: USB host not working but headphones and charger do

Hi @Kevinaparton, let me see if I can help out here.

 

That sounds a bit strange, Xperia 1 do have support for OTG Host, it might require a reboot with the cable and the drive attached. Have you tried rebooting the phone with the OTG cable and the USB drive attached? 

 

try this and let me know how it goes!

I've set that to file transfer and still nothing with otg and only charge on pc.

I've turned off cloud backup system reboot and still no joy.

I thinking it's a problem with root file I've noticed the cached file is only 4.7 mb but on my old Xperia it 20 mb

Sorted the problem ended up doing factory reinstall.

Thanks for all your support sometimes you can't see the answer because of the trees it's under the bush.
