Any suggestions on how I can select an ICS phone that easily appears when I plug it into a PC?
I know most Chinese ICS 4.0 devices seem to work just fine as removable USB storage devices. In fact they have a settings option, USB mass storage mode or MTP mode.

Thanks!

I believe many modern Linux distros should support MTP straight away, like Ubuntu or Mint.
