I am trying to mount a Samsung Galaxy S2 as a mass storage device onto an uptodate Arch Linux setup.
On the Android phone I have done the following
Settings -> More -> USB Utilities -> USB mass storage
Then I followed the instructions and it seems to have successfully entered mass storage mode.
On Arch system if run
dmesg I get the following new entries:
[16309.075881] usb 3-1.1: new high-speed USB device number 14 using ehci-pci
If I run
lsusb I get:
Bus 003 Device 014: ID 04e8:685b Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd GT-I9100 Phone [Galaxy S II] (mass storage mode)
Finally if I run
Journalctl I get:
Jan 23 00:33:19 floyd kernel: usb 3-1.1: new high-speed USB device number 14 using ehci-pci Jan 23 00:33:19 floyd mtp-probe: checking bus 3, device 14: "/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb3/3-1/3-1.1" Jan 23 00:33:19 floyd mtp-probe: bus: 3, device: 14 was not an MTP device
But how do I actually mount this device?
I've read a lot about using MTP which look rather long winded, is there not a plug-and-play way of mounting this and accessing it like USB drive like I was with older Android devices.
Thanks in advance.
