USB OTG Serial on i.MX6 Android kk4.4.3_2.0.0

Hi, I'm having some trouble getting the USB OTG port to appear as a usb serial port when connected to a PC.


- I.MX6DL custom board based on the SabreSD

- Android kk4.4.3_2.0.0 bsp

- USB OTG works for ADB with CONFIG_USB_G_ANDROID=y in my kernel config.


My understanding is that removing CONFIG_USB_G_ANDROID and setting CONFIG_USB_G_SERIAL=y should enable the serial mode. The device /dev/ttyGS0 appears in my device's file system but no computer sees the device when I plug in the usb otg port. What else should I be doing?
