How to connect a otg cable for my A5 2015?

damn my A5 does not support otg, it looks old fashion tech

First thing: you need to download Kingoroot and force the installation of Kingoroot.

Second: you need to download the catalogue f-droid and the updates for the mirrors.

When the updates will be finished; in the catalogue you need to search and download adb, busybox, terms,  920 Text Editor, VimTouch

Third thing: you must to load terms and near the local host you must to type su and then push the key enter

left opened terms

now, load Kingoroot and you will see the tree unlocked

now turn back on terms,  move the finger to the top to your right, you will see written More push on it and open a new window of dialogue

now write

cd /system/etc/permessions and type the key enter

now type: ls and push the key enter

you will see that in the subdirectory /permissions is not available

that is necessary to have the usb port as host and not client mode only.

anyway you can modify

start to read h t tp s : / /github . c o m /452/USBHIDTerminal/wiki/How-to-enable-USB-host-API-support

and you will find written how to enable the USB port in host.

This is 3rd class A5   Shame on Samsung

Shame on Samsung.  Filthy Samsung


Samsung A5 2017 mobile supports USB. The thing u need to do is get type C OTG Cable from market because the adapter received along with phone is good for charging only..

I got samsung a5 before 3 days and I am successfully using OTG Cable to connect my pen drive..cheers

Hey guys. A5 is one of the best smartphones I have ever used. But sorry to say; the Galaxy A5 loses its OTG support after being upgraded to Android Lollipop or marshmallow. It's upgraded OS doesn't support OTG.

How can use usb otg ?

Plz give an update that the otg will support

this is.. really.. shocking... i mean, the brand new series Samsung said have EVERYTHING doesn't support OTG... i just bought sandisk dual drive without checking the compatible list because i'm pretty sure A5 would support OTG but speechlessly it doesn't, and now i'm very upset because i bought a 64GB drive for nothing. Should i try those marshmallow unnofficial or update it first to Lollipop? because i haven't update mine yet since i bought it last February 2015 (still Kit Kat 4.4).. Some people said it can run just fine on 5.0 but i doubt it? Because i tried the dual drive on my friend's A3 2016 edition which is Lollipop but i can't detect the drive either.. How dissapointing for a $400 phone..

I like samsung mobiles, but otg do not support i am surprised how come it is not working. Samsung A5 i am using. Is there any soloution or apps or any thing that make A5 support otg cable .... help me weather it is supporting or not. If not am going 2 buy sony xperia.
