Nope, I even reinstalled the app. Here's the message I'm getting:

 

Android did not find any devices, but Linux did! 

This means that your cable is OK and your device probably supports USB host mode, so you should try rebooting and replugging your device.

 

Please make sure to connect your USB audio device before starting the app. If it fails to detect your device, chances are that your Android device and/or audio device are incompatible.

 

 

Is it entirely possible that my phone doesn't even like USB OTG? I tried the OTG adapter with a memory stick, and it worked fine, or should I get a Mini-B to Micro-B?

Note that OTG for flash memory and OTG for USB DAC are two different things. Having one doesn't equal to having the other. However, UAPP shouldn't really care whether your smartphone has USB DAC OTG support or not since it runs on its own driver. I can get my old Xperia TX to connect to ODAC, so I can't see why your Z1 Compact can't. Perhaps try another cable?

Yeah, that's what I thought too. I'm gonna try reflashing everything, and if that doesn't work, going to try KitKat again. Thanks nonetheless.

Update - works on KitKat when I reflashed an old version. Going to try another distribution of Lollipop to see if it works.

I've been looking at the O2+Odac Combos by JDS Labs and Mayflower Electronics. The latter boasts an upgrade called Rev. B with supposedly better measurements and is cheaper. Is there any reason not to get the Mayflower Electronics one over JDS Labs?

 

Surely if the Mayflower one was better at a lower price then there would be a lot more people getting it instead.

 

Thanks in advance for any information on them.

If you read JDB Labs's ODAC page carefully, you will notice JDS already updated its ODAC to rev.B on May 11th.

 

In fact, if you read this, JDS Labs is the one who helps to design ODAC rev.B.

They're basically the same units, so it'll basically come down to what you prefer for aesthetics... I like mayflower's aluminium knob better than the JDS' default, but JDS has that custom engraving option which is cool. Mayflower and JDS also differ in colour of LED light they use, JDS uses red while Mayflower I believe uses amber or green, forgot which exactly but some non red colour.
