    Question droid bionic usb port / mouse / keyboard/ xbox360 controller

    i bought a micro usb to standard usb adapter to hook up my wired xbox controller to my phone. my phone does not detect it so i tried a standard mouse and keyboard and still nothing. ics was suppose to bring this feature?????

    anyhow i thought maybe it was my adapter so i tried it on my buddys phone and it worked perfect samsung gallaxy s2


    anyone know if this is something to do with droid bionic in general and a work around or is my phone just a pile of **** and now this is broken?

    Just going by memory here, but I think you need a self powered USB hub hooked to the bionic and then plug your stuff into that. Ill try it on mine and post back

    Ok i got it going, I have tested it with a keyboard, mouse and thumbdrive. The Bionic does support USB otg but not quite correctly. Apologies about the pic quality, had to use the front facing camera on this tablet to take it.

    So what I have is a regular otg cable, an externally powered USB hub, USB mouse, and a combo USB +power cable from an external DVD drive.

    The trick to USB host on the bionic is it needs to receive power to go into host mode, that is why it won't work for you. I'm not sure if you need a hub or not but it makes it easier to hook it all up without having to splice wires together.

    Oh I forgot the HD dock for it has 3 USB ports+ it is only $24 at amazon right now, that price is a steal.

    This is all you would need then no cables everywhere.
    The dock still needs power to work just like anything else. But that is a hardware limitation of the bionic afaik
