    Post How To Make an OTG Cable for Xoom : Video Tutorial and Demo Showing a Mouse Using It

    So if you are like me. Waiting a week for your OTG cable to come to your doorstep is not an option. Especially if I can make one with existing cords and equipment I have laying around. If soldering happens to be one of your skills then this is the guide for you.

    This is what you need.
    Micro USB Cable Really you need the Micro USB Head
    Female USB Cable Head Pulled mine out of an old computer
    USB Cable to connect the two heads I used the cable from the Micro USB
    Solder Kit connect the Heads to cords

    But this video puts everything in context and you also can see how the mouse works on 3.1

    Too funny... so last night I saw this post and decided I didn't want to bother creating my own (mostly for aesthetic reasons) and figured how long can it take to get an OTG cable anyway? So, I went in search. The ones for sale on Amazon seemed sketchy, so I headed to eBay. I quickly discovered that most of the people selling them are in China, so delivery can take a few weeks at least. Well, NOW I know why the OP made his own.

    Not only that, but I also just ordered the Verizon Folio/Keyboard case and realized that in order to use an OTG cable with a mouse while it's in the case, I'm probably going to need the microUSB tip to be at a right-angle.... which means I am going to build my own OTG cable afterall.

    So I guess what I'm saying is "LOL" and "Thanks, OP!" hehe

    I know you don't want to wait, but you can get the right angle ones on Ebay for like $6.
