My boyfriend purchased a USB OTG cable so he can play Android games with an Xbox 360 wired controller. When he plugs the Xbox controller into his LG G2 nothing happens, I plugged it into my Samsung Galaxy S4 and it worked immediately. His LG G2 recognizes a flash drive, keyboard and mouse right away so we know the cable is working just fine. What could be causing the Xbox controller to not work?
The AT&T LG G2 is rooted running 4.2.2 with stock ROM. The Keylayout file
vendor_045e_product.028e.kl used for the Xbox 360 wired controller was already on the phone. Running the app titled "USB Device Info" with the Xbox 360 wired controller plugged in shows the controllers info in both the Android and Linux tabs. The device seems to recognize everything it's supposed to but won't work with any games or emulators. It wont even allow the controller to navigate the home screen.
