Orange Pi Lite Micro USB port
Howdy. Firstly, thanks for your continued work on the project!

  I am running an OPi Lite with ROPI version 4.1. (I have not updated to 4.2, but I imagine my question would apply if I did.)  My current issue is that the Micro USB port in the back of board seems to be disabled.  My last installation on this OPi had it working, but that SD card died a long time ago.  Are there steps I can take to get this port active again in v4.1? (If rebuilding the system with 4.2 will activate the port by default, then I will gladly do that.)

Orange Pi Lite
ROPI 4.1
PSU 5V 2.5A
1 SNES-style Vilros gamepad
1 USB Hub attached to Micro USB port (nothing connected to it because it doesn't work)
go in the "/boot/bin" folder and copy the orangepilite.bin file in the /boot/ folder
delete the script.bin and rename the orangepilite.bin to script.bin

it still does not work,
1.) i think a hardware damage
2.) the cable what you use is broken
I just swapped those files as you stated. The port is getting power. When I plug in a mouse, the mouse laser is on. However, no devices are being picked up when I use that port.
test the mouse on one of the two USB-A Ports on you Orange-Pi Lite
work it -> i think the micro USB-Port have not enough Power for the Mouse or your Power Supply is to low
It does not work -> test the Mouse on a PC or Laptop

test you the mouse on armbian desktop?
Everything works when connected to the other standard USB ports (controllers, keyboards, mice). I disconnected everything else when testing, so the micro USB should have all the power it needs (2.5A power supply, the official standard). If I boot up with nothing but a controller attached to the micro port, no response. (I only mentioned the mouse as proof that the micro port has power.)
I'll see if the desktop can find anything on the port.
please run:
cat /sys/bus/platform/devices/sunxi_usb_udc/otg_role

It appears to be empty. The file is there but has no content.
Should I try adding a mode to this file? I've seen stuff around that indicate putting a 1 or 2 (or both) in this file may have something to do with it becoming active.
