usb otg helper crashes when trying to mount ntfs drives and doesn't even notice when a fat32 one is insered...stickmount works perfect in reading but i can't get it to write on disks, usb sticks neither hard disks...i thought the cause was the stick formatted in ntfs, so i formatted it in fat32 but still i can't modify anything...i got this error:

Not seen it before but can tell that it hasn't mounted correctly anyway from the screenshot. Looks like incorrect permissions. What kernel is it? What is the output of the "mount" command in terminal emulator?

Is teh USB stick definitely plugged in? cant see it there at all?

You could test with other kernels too, maybe elementalx, chaos if you're on a cm rom (actually neither of those need stickmount - just check /storage for the drive.)

i'm on stock rom...anyway i tried with another usb stick, and i was able to modify/delete folders...it worked! so it means that i have to bear the annoying fact that some usb sticks are not compatible for unknown reasons??
