Please select another viewer and try again.

I know the udev configuration looks fine and adb works fine and it tries to mount the device for MTP but I get the above error. I'm not using Ubuntu but my go-mtps install has been updated on git and I have the latest version of fuse and followed the instructions.
Reboot. Whenever you get the dreaded transport endpoint error, reboot.

Which? The phone or PC? Both have been rebooted and I noticed the error earlier today since a reboot. I didn't find anything googling outside of xda but I did try to resolve it on my own before posting.

I'm running JoliOS (an Ubuntu based variation) on my netbook. Should that work in a similar fashion? Or any danger I can trash my system that way?

You can check out this post or the entire thread on getting MTP working:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8&postcount=42

However, I don't know why people keep wanting to get MTP working. As in my opinion its not the best option. It only gives you access to /sdcard and writing files in unreliable & cumbersome. Better to use an SSH Server on your phone and sshfs from your PC or QtADB.

For Unity & KDE users, this might be a worthwhile attempt, works for me on KDE. Even quicklists in the icon-only task manager...

I still prefer adb command for it. But if u don't like typing commands all the time, there's a GUI for it, Qtadb. So why do we even need a working MTP?
