I've been trying to get the Phidget-1018 (USB interface kit) and Phidget-1051 (temperature sensor) working with Android 4.1.2 (running on Sony Xperia M C1904).
I tried the InterfaceUSBKit example and it does not detect the Phidget-1018 getting attached (keeps saying 'detached'). I tried enabling Phidget-logging in the InterfaceUSBKit example but the phidget library does not write any logs.
However, when i list all connected USB devices (using a USB Device Info Android app), it does see the two Phidget devices connected (seen under /sys/bus/usb/devices on the phone), and the phone is in USB host mode. So it would be great if you could please help me with this!
Lastly, I was able to get the two sensors working with the Nexus-5 (running Android 4.4) plugged into USB, with the phone in USB host mode. It worked liked a charm!
