Hey there,
I bought an OTG USB Dongle today, so I can power up my switch on the go with my phone, however I only found a USB C to USB A(mother) dongle, and my phone is microUSB.
I attached the dongle to my switch, and connected my phone to it, however NXLoader and Rekado don't see my switch.

Could it be because of the reversed dongle, should I get a dongle that goes from my phone, or is there something I missed?
Thanks

The USB OTG must be on the phone side. I tried with usb c otg on the switch and usb c cable with my phone and the setup doesn't work. I need to connect the usb c otg to the phone, usb a (usb c cable) to the otg, then usb c cable to the switch for it to work.

Something like:
Phone(c)==OTG(a)==(c)Switch (works)
Switch(c)==OTG(a)==(c)Phone (doesn't work).

I have not tried usb c to usb c cable as I dont have it.

    Omg do you know how much money I would spend if that was a thing? Especially if you get to assemble the gundams somewhat like those old model toy kits. The answer is zero dollars. I would spend zero dollars. It would still be so good, though.

    i just saw a video yesterday that mentioned how it's a good thing 1-2-switch wasn't a pack in title because it would've made everyone lose faith in the switch immediately and they might have a point
