Samsung Galaxy S II supports USB 2.0 On-The-Go (OTG). However, Samsung Galaxy S2 does not bundle USB OTG cable with it. But you should get it by yourself because the USB OTG adaptor or USB OTG cable is cheap for less than $3 only. I got mine from eBay for $2.68 ~ USB 2.0 Micro-B host OTG cable. The very first thing that I tried on it, USB flash drive. Let’s see how does USB flash drive performs on Samsung Galaxy S2 USB OTG…
Yes, USB flash drive is working perfect on Samsung Galaxy S2 USB OTG. No issue to listen to MP3, view photo, watch WMV video @ 720p or even YouTube MP4 video @ 1080p. USB OTG is very useful because no computer is needed. However, it does not support my USB multi memory card reader
and USB Micro SD card reader. Hmm… What USB product can work on Samsung Galaxy S2 USB OTG? I will keep finding and testing…
why my phone keep not detected sim card, can u help me men
Put your SIM card into other phone, if same issue happen, ask your telco for another SIM card.
sweet posts….I want one too
Why don’t you try if an external HDD of say 320GB or 500GB, or any of this family of memory disks, works on the Samsung galaxy S2 via this OTG USB? Would be nice to know 🙂
There are models with the external power supply and others which are powered over the USB…
SGS2 does not have enough power to use external HDD unless the HDD is getting power from other source.
Do you know which 16gb USB sticks work with the Samsung Galaxy S2?
I have tried a Sandisk Cruzer Micro and an Integral usb stick, both 8gb and i recieve the error: ”high power device connected”
– which 16gb usb sticks DO work with the samsung? thanks!!
Sorry, I have no idea because I don’t have any 16GB USB flash drive.
I can confirm that the SanDisk cruzer fit 16gb works with my Samsung galaxy s2, running ics 4.0.4 ( resurrection remix 2.2)
Find this rom on galaxy s2root.com
Is will only work on 2.3.2 If you update the phone to a niew firmware is is gon. It is nog suportet anny more
Mine is still working on Android 2.3.6.
Hi, do you know of any android app that can sync the usb drive to the SGS2? I can sync from my PC to the S2, but haven’t found any app that can sync my usb drive to phone. Thanks.
Sorry Kang, no idea on such app.
i have a 4 gb pen drive worked fine on my s2 watching and transferring films but av just updated my phones firmware to 4.0.3 and now it shows it connecting and disconnecting but doesn’t show the usb folder in my files is there any apps or custom updates that can fit this or will i have to wait for samsung to relise anew update to fix it
Hi tom, please consult Samsung Support. Suspect it is new firmware issue.
I can read my flash desk by OTG cable, however I’d like to ask you if it possible to copy file from the mobile (photos, excel, .. etc) to the flash desk and vise versa?
Not sure but you can try.
It is. You can copy any files like you can on a computer. Office files/music/films/zip files, etc
My SGS2 keeps getting hot whenever i use Wifi internet or i am downloading.Is it normal or the phone is defective?
Getting warm is normal. But not too hot.
Get a widget that tells you how hot exactly it gets…. Below 55 degrees c is the Max it should get when gaming etc. Internet isn’t a very intensive task usually.
once you get a widget, let me know how hot it gets
Hi – my Samsung Galaxy S2 – do not recognize the jig or the flash drive, what can I do? Any advice are welcome…
Hi Tommy, are you using official firmware? If yes, please consult Samsung Support then.
Hi Jayce… and thank I for your swift reply.
No, I’ve just rooted, and thought that was the case. So I’m not sure what to do…
Change to other custom firmware that support flash drive.
Recently I updated my galaxy s2 to ICS 4. Now unable to use external usb pendrive. Please help!
Hi VEENA, please consult Samsung Support in this case.
