I assume you didn't get it yet?  If you did, does it work?

It works. I already have mine

Downloaded the update.  So with the cable attached, I'm supposed to go into the settings mode and turn off the wifi??  Is this right??  I did that and didn't get a signal from the RC.  Any help??  Thx  Bolton

Ok, so I've tested the newly released DJI GO 4 and here are my results. I've tested DJI GO 4 4.2.12 build 557 with a Spark firmware 01.00.0900. DJI Assistant claims this is the newest firmware.

First the good news, OTG really displays the essential flight data again. Now the bad news, I can't see the the info about the WiFi channels (how much interference there is for each of them) and I am unable to force the RC to switch between the 5,8 GHz and 2,4 GHz band. It doesn't matter whether I use the cable or go on WiFi only connection. It simply doesn't work at all. The only way how I'm able to see it is when I reset the WiFi of the Spark and connect to it directly by phone. It connects via 2,4GHz and I can see the channel info just fine. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that my phone can't use the 5,8Ghz band but we will need more people to test it out. I'll include some screenshots below.

same here... no channel data... well since 4.2.8... and can't change to 2.4ghz...

should i reset my spark? (i mean unlink it from my rc then re link again for 2.4ghz?)

but still no channels showing if it's good or got interference...

PS in 4.2.8 auto channel i can switch from 2.4 and 5.8.. now in new version stuck at 5.8

Well, I wasn't able to find a solution so far. Here is what I tried : downgrade DJI GO 4 back to 4.1.14,  reset the Spark to factory settings via DJI Assistant 2, reset the link between the Spark and the RC and pair them again (many times). After that I tried to downgrade the Sparks firmware, unfortunatelly, the oldest version I can see is .701, up untill now I used firmware .600 but I can't find it anywhere anymore and when I asked for help the DJI Support they told me that there is no bug in the App or firmware and I should send my Spark for repairs as it is probably broken ... when I argued that it all worked fine till I upgraded the App and the firmware and asked for an access to the older version of the firmware ... they didn't even bother to respond anymore and since I received a satisfaction survey yesterday I believe they closed my case without even trying to help me ... really dissapointed with their support.

Btw, could you try to break the link between the Spark and the RC and connect the phone directly to the Spark ? That's the only way how I can see the channel info, unfortunately, since my phone does not suport 5,8GHz I can't try switch the bands this way but since I am not the only one, it is clear that DJI indeed has some problem with their SW ...

The CS is still running Go 4 version 4.2.8 which don't have OTG at the Spark - We will have to wait for the CS to be updated before we can use OTG together with the Spark.

Because you mention about ''specific procedure'', i start thinking that maybe i am doing something wrong!!! And this was the problem....i didn't plugg the otg cable to the RC device but to the phone. When i put the otg cable into the RC everything works fine!!! At last otg cable is working!!!
I want to thanks S-e-ven because after a fast search i find this post of him:
S-e-ven Posted at 2018-1-28 05:47
The main point:
The otg adapter needs to be plugged into the RC
Not in the phone
The phone is the USB on the Go device here.
Like a USB Stick is for a phone.

and that was the solution to this problem!!!

Could you describe the specific procedure.  I have 4.2.12 installed.  I tried a cable but if I turn off WiFi on the phone the connection drops.

How can I tell if I am working over OTG?

How did you manage to make it work? I also have a galaxy s7 edge and I have not been able to install it from DJI GO 4 4.1.15 version, I get a network connection error when I start the program, I have internet and it's not the problem I just do not want to connect .

1. Turn drone on wait for beep.

2. Turn on remote wait for it to link with drone.

3. Turn on tablet in airplane mode and plug wire into tablet, then remote.

4. Prompt on tablet should pop up asking to start dji app.  Click yes.

My S7 Edge had the  Go 4 version 4.2.8 and the upgrade was done from this version to version 4.2.12 with no issues.  About 3 weeks ago I did use the DJI GO 4 4.1.15 version but upgraded to 4.2.8 to be able to use my phone and Mavic air also. The GO 4 version 4.2.8 was much more stable than the previous GO 4 4.1.18 (but no OTG and its longer range benefits).  

How did you do the upgrade. Did you uninstall the Go 4.1.15 before upgrade to GO 4 Version 4.2.12 and have you tried to reboot the S7 after uninstall of the old version?

-  Turn on drone
-  Turn on remote and wait to link with drone
-  If you use otg adapter, as you can see in the picture, you should plugged into the remote.
-  After that you will see on your phone a pop up window asking to start dji app, you select ''yes'' and you are ready for flight!!! Wifi in that case must be off otherwise your phone is linked with the remote without otg cable.

Only when you have a RC connection but aren't using wifi! ;-)

1. Turn drone on wait for beep.

2. Turn on remote wait for it to link with drone.

Starting the drone is for me the last thing, I do.
For getting the Device and RC connected, via cable, there is only
1. Start RC, wait till LED red
2. plug 'exit' side of USB OTG connection in phone
3. plug 'entry' side of USB OTG connection in RC
... needed. App shows 'connected' then already (connected to RC!)
Start Spark, wait till LED on RC turns green, App shows 'go fly', go and fly
