    I recently installed AOSP custom ROM on my Lenovo A7000-a phone. Since then, my Windows 8.1 (x64) pc detects is as a device and not an external USB storagee unlike in the case of Lenovo stock ROM which gave me the facility to view my phone as a device or as an external USB storage .


    How can I get this feature back?

    Flash a stock ROM back.

    I know that's not the answer you wanted, but Android hasn't natively supported USB Mass Storage since 4.0, so it's perfectly normal for an AOSP ROM to only offer MTP.
