    hey there

    just bought me a Samsung OTG micro USB/USB 2.0 card reader to watch movies on my Android
    and then plug in to my media player at home too... (OTG - on the go)

    if you purchased your phone within the last 2 years more than likely you have the OTG function
    available to yours .. just a couple of USD $$$ for the reader

    Thanks for the info guardian:)
    In smartphones, OTG was introduced in Android 3.1 (HoneyComb), so most (but not all) devices with newer android os have otg support.:)
    Especially for android 4.3 or newer, mostly have otg support:)

    An Motorola Droid Maxx. And it is the carrier and the way the phone is designed for them. Believe you me, I've tried. It's kind of dumb, but I've accepted that fact. There are certain things that the manufacturer can do to make them virtually unrootable. I've done some research into this. Sigh...... ):

    -- It has to do with the way the carrier has them manufactured. I've done some research into this. They can make them virtually unrootable, so no root app will work and you cannot modify them. It's kind of dumb. It's a great phone however, so no complaints there. I didn't think it was possible, until I tried. ):

    Well in the USA they do make a lot of phones unrootable. Probably too much red tape involved or just plain greed on the part of companies. Not sure if I can actually install another OS. They make it very complicated. I'll have to look into that. Seems like other countries don't have hangups on stuff like this, that we do here. Sigh...... ): , then :D

    Moto and other companies has tie up with Telecom companies there (in US) , that's why phones are cheap there but there is no regulations and tie ups like this here, it makes the mobile more costly :) as phones are out of boundaries like unrootable,telecom change,etc:p

    My phone was manufactured in 2015, so towelroot wouldn't work on it. Just checked out the towelroot website, and it said that towelroot works on pretty much all Android phones manufactured before July 3, 2014. I do greatly appreciate the suggestion, as it made me find out more about towelroot. :)
