DIY OTG cable

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

First, I know OTG cables are like super cheap and stuff but idc because im a cheap bastard and I also want to make one. Ok so I want to connect my PS3 controller to my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. This might be a stupid question but, could I theoretically just connect two male USB ends, one being Micro-USB and one being Mini-USB?

Yup, it'll work. Just cut the cables at the ends you don't need and splice them together using this diagram I found from Google.

If you have a volt meter with a continuity tester (or a dedicated one) this will make the process a lot easier if the cables aren't colored inside.

I think It'll be easiest if he uses the pre-soldered cables on both connectors, and splice and solder them in the middle, how would he connect the wires in that picture?

yes, just make sure your solder joints are good and the wires are spliced, and not touching

No, that's not right.

You have to short pin 4 and 5 of the host and connect the others to enable otg.
