    would like to thank you for the input that you have posted; it did help me to
    use the USB with my phone. I had to make an account to express my gratitude,
    which I believe you deserve.

    • I am glad I could help you. Thanks for flagging that. I’ve also enabled “Guest commenting”, let’s see how that works…

    how to use otg pen drive or cable with s4 mini phone

  • Shawn

    I just bought this pebble blue at&t sgs4. I bought it hoping it would be as badass as the red one I bought last year. Um…. it’s like they dummied it down and locked out any feature that would give access to root. Maaannnn. .. I tweaked the shit outta my red one. It was my hot rod till it got jacked.

    Anyway…..I got dev. options open on the blue one but no matter what I do the USB debugging option stays greyed out. Can’t click on it. All FUN fun shot dead right there. What do I do?
