OTG Not working?

    So I've just received my 2nd USB-C -> USB OTG adapter, but again this one isn't working.

    I've gone into the Rom -> Settings -> Storage and enabled OTG, but any device I plugin does not power up? Any ideas?

    It's backwards compatible (the OTG adapter), so should support USB 3.1/3.0/2.0.

    Anyone got it working?

    So I have both of these adapters:


    Neither seem to work for me? I am trying to connect to a flight control board, so using a normal USB -> Micro USB, but the boards in question do not receive any power, nevermind data!

    Any ideas?

    I specifically need it for Quadcopter tuning (Cleanflight).

    I ordered the first one which came today - didn't work. :(

    I managed to get OTG USB working based on an old micro-USB OTG adapter and the USB-C converter from OnePlus - but even then it didn't look like much power was going to it.
    Just enough for a USB stick - not much more by the looks of it.

    Interestingly I bought it to see if it would power a ACR122 NFC card reader (I'm one of those people who actually use NFC as part of my job) - but it didn't light up. :(

    Bump, anyone? This is quite a crucial thing to not have working when it is supposedly supported.

    I have, still doesn't work.

    Bump - this needs more visibility!

    To clarify I have tried all sorts of devices - memory sticks, hard drives, and also other usb devices such as a Naze 32 Flight Controller - none of them work - it seems none are even getting power, nevermind the data being read.

    I am also not the only one, covered a lot on XDA-Developers, but it seems nobody is kicking up a fuss here..

    There are at least a couple of other threads on this in the forum. Most people are reporting that this is not working; several people have said, though, that it does work with the official OnePlus USB-C adapter (which, unfortunately, is out of stock in the U.S. currently).

    Interesting, I guess it's some oddity with a USB 2.0 Type C port, though the 3.1 OTG adapters should be backwards compatible... I've ordered one from France off of eBay, hopefully get it soon (an official one).

    Does anyone knows if OTG cables are working now with the OPT?
    I just ordered a few on amazon two days ago but it seems that it only works if you use cables with the OTG adapter sold by oneplus.
    That would be really disappointing!

    I ordered a USB-C OTG adapter from Amazon, and it is definitely not working. As far as I know, using a micro USB OTG cable with the official OnePlus adapter is the only confirmed working solution; I haven't seen anyone with a link to another adapter that is confirmed to work.

    OTG will work ONLY with OP adapter and a REGULAR micro-USB OTG cable.
    OP adapters available on Ali Express.

    Are you sure that the OP adapters that offers Ali Express are original? Have you tried by yourself?
    Thanks for your help as always:)

    I got now the third OTG-Cable and nearly the same MircoUSB-2-Type-C-Adaptor, but NONE is working!

    Same with the adaptor and the OnePlus-OTG-Cable (for OPO)...

    Why isn't it working? What "electric" connections are inside a OTG-Cable? Nexus-Importer said: OTG-Support ok, but no cable (like some other test-apps).

    Trouble. I want to copy pics from my big DSLR to the OPT. Works fine with OPO.

    But OTG on OnePlus Two is not working at all!

    The only that works is the official one as said before,

    That and a usb type c usb 2.0 otg cable from orzly, which is appears to be out of stock right now.

    I have both and both work. All the other adapter I've tried none worked. Probably because they were either usb 3.1 or 3.0...

    We have a 2.0 port. It seems that if you want the extra functionality that is provided by OTG (rather than just charging and data) then you will need a 2.0 adapter. The OTG adapter itself is also 2.0 and this is probably why it wont work with 3.0/3.1 adapters. My OP adapter and two cables have been shipped today, yay! However my OP2 hasn't been shipped, boo. At least I will have some nice red cables to look at.

    I bought one from Ali Express. The one that I got is the original OnePlus adapter, and it does work with OTG devices and cables.

    Will not work if you need it to power a USB device even if you have the right adapter.

    Just like the one I said on top it will not power and USB device that requires powering up unless you can rig a USB cable attaching an external power source.

    Not backwards compatible as wiring structures and loadsare different from different adapters.

    Here we go again :D

    It works... I bought one from there as long as it said oneplus from the silicone cover.
