SG USB Mass Storage Enabler

SG USB Mass Storage Enabler


Requires root access!!

This application allows you to enable USB Mass Storage mode on select Samsung and Sony devices.

This will export your microSD card over USB as a mass storage device, this will NOT work with your internal memory due to hardware and software limitations.

You can also create shortcuts to easily toggle between UMS on and off.

Tested or reported working on:
* Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500, GT-I9505, SGH-I337, SGH-M919)
* Samsung Galaxy SIII (GT-I9300, GT-I9305, SPH-L710)
* Samsung Galaxy Note II (GT-N7100)
* Samsung Grand Duos (GT-I9082)
Thanks to d4fseeker and Sakaschi for the methods used to enable UMS.

As of version 2.2, there's a new pro version that has auto-switching. If you have donated before, please contact me and I'll arrange a workaround for you as it's unfair for you to pay twice, thank you :)

Old changelog:
[2.0]
* New layout and improved UI.
* Better code handling.
* Basis for new Xposed-powered version that hooks deep into Android.

[1.5]
* Fixed overlapping items when the device is flipped into landscape.

[1.4]
* Now uses RootTools to check BusyBox and root, the app should be more reliable.
* Do some checks to see if the mount point doesn't have an actual block mounted to it (is SD card available?)
* Fallback to first detected block device

[1.3]
* Added untested support for Verizon's Galaxy S4 (SCH-I545) (Not working)

[1.2]
* Added ads. Don't like ads? They can be disabled :)
* Handle a few more exceptions in code.
* Attempt to detect if a user does not have BusyBox installed, if so, redirect them to Play Store listing.

[1.1]
* Add non-tested support for the Samsung Galaxy S4 (i9505), might work on other S4s.

[1.0]
* Initial release.

Keywords: Sony, Samsung, Galaxy, USB, Mass, Storage, Enabler

Recent changes:
[2.3.1]
* 2.3 was a debug build with debug code, fix that.

[2.3]
* Fixed regression with shortcuts.
* Added version number to settings.

[2.2]
* Auto-detect needed files, this opens up support for more devices from other OEMs.
* Due to the above, Sony Xperia Z1 support.
* New pro version with option to auto-switch to UMS and back to MTP on cable connect/disconnect.
* Code refinements, app should perform better now.

Superb! Superb, exactly what I was looking for. I *never* use the MTP mode, and rely heavily on connecting my Galaxy note as a Windows volume. I was getting sick of the procedure to manually put the device in mass storage mode every time I connected to the PC, and this app makes it a breeze. Thanks!

Presents storage, but it is read only This app meets half of my goals, but it does not make my external storage writable.

Doesn't work on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 SM-T310 "An error occured while identifying the SD Card..." I have a 32 gB SD card installed. The tablet is running Android 4.4.2 and it is rooted; I had SU grant full access to the App. Guess it just isn't compatible with my tablet :( I so wanted this App to work. Being stuck with MTP is horrible: I can't use TeraCopy or any of my usual file sync tools, MTP is slow as molasses on big video files, and unstable as well. I hope the developer can extend this app to more models of tablets and phones!
