Thank you )
They didn't just "brutally pull out" mass storage at all. Mass storage can still be used if you have an actual sdcard.
The problem is in fact that if you use the fuse file system to share /sdcard data space, which is the only method that works well, mass storage would be impossible.
Unfortunately this means that we're stuck with MTP and we all share the same issues. It needs vast improvement. This is a bi-product of using fuse unfortunately. You can't mount usb ass storage a fuse /sdcard because its on the /data partition and you cannot rip the data partition out whilst its in use, which is what mass storage would require
You have 2 options. Adb push / pull (see thread available via my signature) or using WiFi to transfer.
There are loads of apps that are available to do transfer over the network. Personally I just use a file explorer. Fastest? Adb because its wired but its not the simplest
