    Is it possible to get Mass Storage Mode back for the SD card?

    I have tried an app from XDA Developers, but that did not work. So does anybody else know about a way to get mass storage mode working on ICS? I much prefer that to the media storae stuff that's being used in the OS.

    This was discussed in the forum at some point. Try searching the backlog thread as well. If I remember correctly it is not possible.

    OK, I'll take your word for it. Thanks! I can probably get quite far by using Wifi.

    No, I don't much... I have a synchronizing program that I use, and it's dependent on a drive letter to work. Means that I have to use it over Wifi, which is a lot slower, or get another program that can handle it, if one excists. But at least I won't have to waste time on trying to find a solution for this when noen excists.

    You can try adding to build.prop this option: persist.sys.usb.config=mass_storage,adb

    Interesting, thanks! I'll test that out when I get the time (probably this weekend, in case I have to set up my Adam from the ground up again if something goes wrong...).

    Won't work. That build.prop changes. You could readd all the legacy usb, and mass storage stuff back in. Yet we decided to go to MTD so its mostly been removed. We did have UMS working at once point in the ICS rom, figrued it was better off to embrace the change than fight it tho.
    If you like my work, add to my PC PAYOFF FUND.

    THANKS!!

    Not a lot - it doesn't seem to play too nicely with my Kubuntu! Maybe I just need to search more, but work's getting in the way
