Having read this page, I decided to give AFT a try, so I installed it by sudo pacman -S android-file-transfer, connected the device (OnePlus 3T) to the computer through USB, set it to "Transfer files mode", and then opened AFT. So far so good, I see all folders inside my device, I can select files and dowload them. I haven't tried uploading, but I think everythig's ok.

Except that I'd prefer to browse the device in the terminal, so that I can make use of regexp to move stuff from/to the device.

I've found the following

$ ll /dev/disk/by-id
usb-OnePlus_Device_Driver_5abf662b-0:0 -> ../../sr0

but when I try

$ mkdir mount_here
$ sudo mount /dev/sr0 mount_here

all I see is this

$ ll mount_here
total 18466

  • Run mount before and after attaching the device to see what changes. If nothing changes, you can always use aft-mtp-mount to mount it anywhere – Fox Jun 17 '18 at 14:21
  • mount gives the same result before and after attaching the device; the same also after setting transfer files from Android. Then aft-mtp-mount mount_here gives Device::Find failed:Device is already used by another process if I set transfer files on the device, connect failed: no MTP device found if I had not. – Enrico Maria De Angelis Jun 17 '18 at 16:46
