Default USB mass storage on 4.0.4.

Hello all.

My Galaxy S2 got upgraded to ICS and now I can't use my phone on Linux or Mac. How can one get this functionality?

Thanks.

You can go to XDA Developer, they are currently working on a app for rooted phone to have the USB mass storage put back. If you are rooted, you should get the phantom ROM. It have the Mass storage installed and it is ICS based.

I would figure that the community would be able to eventually fix Google's stupidity for removing UMS.

This says that it's just tucked away in a lower menu:

How to enable USB mass storage on Android 4.0 ICS Samsung Galaxy S2?

I'll find out in a few minutes - upgrading to 4.03 as I type.

If it's really gone there's always this I suppose:

I wonder if Google is going to fix this.

In a video qbking77 did on the leaked FI03 building, there is an option to switch between us storage and mtp (or whatever the new one is called). So, once that gets released (or a later build), we should be good on that point.

For the moment, you are SOL with 4.0.4 and USB storage, be it PTP, MTP, or UMS. I may have to get another phone (presumably an iPhone), regardless of cost, as a result of this; the inability to transfer files when not on a wireless network seriously endangers my livelihood.

Was having the same problem. Did a factory reset and then had to go to settings, developer options, and make sure usb debbuging and allow mock locations was checked. Now it works.

Default USB Mass storage

I just finally got mine to work, it was fine until the FI27 update...I had to check the two settings Twilighter mentioned, unplugged the cable, rebooted the phone, uninstalled KIES and the samsung drivers. Reinstalled the Samsung drivers (not KIES), plugged the cable to phone, waited while system (WinXP) recognized the drivers...it's working fine now. I can see the folders on my card as well as the phone memory.
