Galaxy Nexus or Android 4.0 on Linux PTP migrate and manage dataFiled under: World;
I must once again the topic of Android 3.0 or 4.0 device with integrated via MTP in Ubuntu Linux pick up from yesterday. I'm right there written in detail, why can you use an Android 3.x or 4.0 device is no longer as a USB mass storage device and how it's accessed via the Media Transfer Protocol still on the data of the mobile phone / tablet.The effort is still quite high, but if one changes the phone to the previous PTP and happy you in Ubuntu 11:10 without further tinkering.
The clue came from Andy aka maroony Schoenemann. The necessary adjustment is a bit buried deep in the option. You can find them under “Settings ->Memory ->Menu ->USB Connection”. There must be only the hooks are set in camera, then plug directly immersed in the file manager, in my case with the GNOME Nautilus shell on.
Negative effects regarding the change I could not find so far. If the PTP setting is set, then dipped the Galaxy Nexus on as normal in the file manager. It can copy or delete files up, move, or of course download again. It is as if one would normally accessed via a USB mass storage on the phone.
However, it seems that only for the Galaxy Nexus or apply to Android 4.0. Honeycomb on two tablets I can find no such option. Also in the network can discover nothing that you could switch to PTP Honeycomb. The PTP mode seems to be available only for devices running Android 4.0. Anyone who has an “older” Tablet with Android 3.x, which therefore must willy-nilly on the mtplib MPTFs or fall back.
