One here: http://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=137

Just look for the picture with all the colored lines. That is pretty accurate if you don't want to wait for wermy's videos. I suggest waiting for his videos though because they are the most helpful.

Here's the inside of that one if you're curious. I cut the fourth plug off the bottom left there, that was the mini-USB input:

Do you happen to know what the yellow cable is for? I assume the GREEN and WHITE cables go to my pi0?

So apparently the OTG standard has a 5th pin, the "ID" pin (that's the yellow cable): http://electronics.stackexchange.com/qu ... only-has-4

There's no connection for that on the underside of the Pi so hopefully we don't need to use it! Can anyone confirm we're okay ignoring that wire? Or should we run it to ground perhaps?

For green and white, you'll see those are connected to "DP" and "DM". That stands for "Data Plus" and "Data Minus". Those are standard on USB cables (although you'll sometimes see "D+" and "D-" instead). On the underside of the Pi PP22 is DP and PP23 is DM.

Are you happy with your hub ?
I've seen this one on EBay and it seems to be the same

Now that I have mine hooked up I can confirm that we don't need that 5th ID pin. I didn't bother running it to ground as a continuity test said it was grounded already.

Seems very cheap and didn't take much effort to break it open with my bare hands. I haven't got round to hacking it up yet, but it seems to do the job as is.

This OTG won't even recognise my keyboard which is fine with a micro USB adapter.

Yes, that one doesn't work with Raspberri Pi

Does this work for you?
Mine did not work at all with the RPi, only on Windows.
