    I have a Nexus 4 and am wondering if USB OTG is supported out of the box, if I need to download an app, or if I need to root. Does anybody know?

    The nexus 4 does not currently support USB OTG

    Even with root?

    I am sure it does with root and almost assuredly with a custom ROM. I would be very surprised if you couldn't get it to work.

    Not yet apparently. Should be soon though. I bought an OTG adapter but can't use it yet. I'm rooted on my N4.

    I'd be able to help you if I could order one:(

    You might want to check out XDA to get a definitive answer. It's almost a guarantee someone asked this question over there.
