    Hi guy,

    Last night when I did the update it had the 4.2.12 version with OTG for the spark.

    I now see it has in fact changed again down to 4.2.8?

    Anyone else experience that? From SA. Screenshot_20180417-193913_Google%20Play%20Store.jpg

    Yep, I just checked and even though it updated to 4.2.12 yesterday, the version listed on Play Store is 4.2.8 now. Wonder why they pulled the update? I did extract the APK in the other forum:
    Looks like otg android is back

    That's exactly what I had! So now I wonder if that is why I cannot connect via OTG and can only charge the RC via the OTG connection to my phone

    What version does your app say you have? You can check by going into DJI Go 4 app, going to the "Me" section and then tapping the gear icon at the top. It will take you to a screen and all the way at the bottom is the version of the app. Mine is still 4.2.12 installed, Play Store shouldn't reinstall 4.2.8 since 4.2.12 is newer -- even if 4.2.8 is the latest in the Store.

    You're right, though, if your installed app is 4.2.8 it could be part of your OTG problem.

    Still, it is curious that DJI pulled the 4.2.12 update. I hope it doesn't mean they are going to pull back anything that they have given back to us.

    Yes I saw 4.2.12 then when i went back to download it was back to 4.2.8 which caused the OTG problem. So now back to 4.1.15 and using OTG. I'm in UK but looking on DJI forum it appears some other countries do still have the 4.2.12.
    Odd or what?
