I use a Samsung Tab S2 (8 in.) as my mobile device. If you connect by following these steps it should work for you too. All flight telemetery and battery levels ARE displayed on the mobile device.

1.Connect the USB Cable to the OTG cable.
2.Connect the USB cable to your android device.
3.Start your Spark and RC.  Wait till they connect (Solid green light on the RC)
4.Start the GO 4 APP on your android. Wait till it connects and tells you to "GO FLY"
5.Connect the OTG cable to the RC.
6.Click on the "GO FLY" button on the GO 4 App.

On MY Samsung Tab S2 I get all information needed to fly. ie. Height, VS, Distance, GPS Sat. Battery level, etc.

6.Click on the "GO FLY" button on the GO 4 App.


And you are sure, you are OTG and not wifi connected?
My guess is, the wifi is still on to the RC!

So......?

OTG is definitely NOT working under Android (DJI GO4 v4.2.6).

#NO batterystatus.
#NO flight data.
#NO nothin' @all.

On the other hand, the IOS version DJI Go4 V4.2.6 is working well with the OTG cable.

WiFi will be used if turned on instead of the OTG on my IPAD. I went and checked.

But no screenshot or -video or info about your device
Can it be, that your wifi is on and connected to the RC?

That is different indeed. But inside the house i was testing the live streaming function. Cable connected to phone, all telemetry showing on the screen, and i was specifically checking the wifi several times and it was showing connected to my home wifi. Ofcourse out in the field the only wifi available would be the RC one..i'll test that as soon as the weather will allow..

FYI ... the OTG connection never stopped working physically. The problem is that since DJI GO 4 4.1.18 released last november, DJI has broken the readouts of essential flight data transmitted over the cable. If you look at the video you uploaded you will see you have no satellite data, no remainning battery, no height, distance and so on. It is practically unusable in this state as well as pretty dangerous. That's the reason why people say it does not work ;).
