Otg issue in R17, host mode does not work


I have a few questions regarding OTG. I found an article on the forum stating that it doesn’t work with custom hardware

We are facing the same issue here; we don’t have eth, and we also use LAN95XX. Is there any information available about this problem? Is there a solution for it, or will it be fixed at all? This is currently holding our project back.

Thank you for your responses!

this is regression on R17
Even for USB thumb drive, it would not work with the USB OTG.
As workaround, you might need to use R16 or route to USB host connector which is using HSIC bus.

We definitely need the 4.x kernel! We don’t have the option for an HSIC solution. Is there a way to configure the OTG USB to operate exclusively as a host?

Isn’t USB OTG always a host?
currently i cannot find any workaround to use USB OTG on R17
