Connect/ mount Android mobile phone Internal Storage in Linux

Connect/mount Android mobile phone Internal Storage in Linux

In linux, You can connect external storage SD card as USB mass storage of a android phone . But connecting Phone internal storage is difficult. Because it support only MTP, android 3.0 onwards.

Philip Langdale is has implemented native MTP support for gvfs. The native mtp implementation for gvfs has been merged upstream and has been released in gvfs 1.15.2. [Gvfs is the virtual filesystem layer that’s used by Gtk+ based desktop environments (GNOME 3, Unity, XFCE, etc).]

To access phone Internal Storage in android mobile phone, you need to enable following ‘gvfs mtp backend & you can effectively browse through nautilus, and can download files from and upload files to it.

For that you can download source file from & compile. or you can to add ppa & install the files for Ubuntu.

By using command line,

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:langdalepl/gvfs-mtp


Using synaptic package manger – repository or software center – software sources

For Ubuntu 12.04,

deb precise main
deb-src precise main

For Ubuntu 12.10,

deb quantal main
deb-src quantal main

For Ubuntu 13.04,

deb raring main
deb-src raring main

after adding update packages using synaptics or command line

sudo apt-get update

Now log out & login into system.  Connect your phone & access internal storage in nautilus.

Internal Storage_009

Note: MTP is the “Media Transfer Protocol”. MTP only allows you to download a complete file, or upload one – you can’t even move a file between locations on the device through MTP (you have to download it, delete it, then upload it to the new location) against a traditionally filesystem where you can do random I/O within a file (ie: open, seek, read, write, close, etc).

So Trying to just open a file will probably fail because automatically download the file and open the temporary copy may not happen in all softwares. So you need to manually copy file to your home directory.
