Android 4.2 file access from Fedora 19 via MTP.

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I recently purchased an S4. I wanted to mount it on my Fedora 19 machine so that I browse and transfer files from Dolphin. For those not aware, USB Mass Storage mode has been removed as a connection option on several new Android devices. It has been replaced my a new protocol called MTP which has many advantages over USM, including concurrent access by both the device and the client and transcending the FAT32 limitations inherent in USM. It turns out that Linux (Fedora at least) supports MTP and accessing an Android device via MTP from Linux (Fedora) is straightforward and efficient. He (HowTos)
