    Has anyone with a Moto X tried to transfer files using an otg cable to a USB thumb drive? I've tried with a few apps, paid & free, and none seem to work. I've seen that Kitkat broke the Moto X's otg capabilities & now only a few apps will work. I've tried those apps that were suggested, from the Motorola forums, and none seems to work.
    Funny thing is that my old Galaxy Nexus running Cyanogen 4.2.2 supports otg transfer. But that may just back up the claim that kitkat broke the otg capabilities

    This is what I see on my Gnex when I plug in the otg cable with the thumb drive
