How can I bind my Android file system to my Linux machine, and modify it? When I plug in my Android device, it seems to use one USB interface but I couldn't find whre the mount point is. I checked /mnt but there is nothing.

shot answer adb can allow you to interact with your phone if you have the correct driver. but I wouldn't if I were you because you seems pretty rocky whit that and you rather search a bit before trying to do such a thing. – Kiwy Jan 31 '14 at 14:54
I tried adb and getting permission deny – user55778 Jan 31 '14 at 14:57
What Linux distribution are you using? @Kiwy You don't need any special driver, it's just generic USB + adb or USB mass storage. – Gilles Jan 31 '14 at 23:39

Some phones have icky USB storage interfaces, which don't work on Linux reliably (look here for example), others (e.g. my Samsung Galaxy with Android 4.3) seem not to offer USB access to their innards at all (nothing in the logs when plugging it in). Some need to be set up specially (allow USB in their configuration) to mount them.
