    Goal: Get kindle fire running retroarch and have OTG for a wired pokken controller controller.

    The rom I am using doesn't seem to support OTG: CyanogenMod 4.4.2 Version InFriction v11 27-02-2014
    Kernel: 3.0.72+

    I don't really want to go to newer versions of android as I think performance may drop and I think I would have to setup otter (if you think I'm wrong and have a suggestion I'm happy to try it anyway). I don't mind going to older if it will run retroarch better or has OTG so my controller will work. I also read once that changing the kernel may also get OTG going.

    If you think I need to change the kernel... a link to which kernel and maybe a tutorial would be great too.

    I've poked around and would just like some opinions to try out.

    I wouldn't recommend going higher than Kit Kat. And yeah, OtterX is kinda a pain to setup, and can mess things up if you do it wrong. I'm not sure if there are any roms that support OTG.
