hello, i am on "[rom] [4.2.2] Unofficial CyanogenMOD [cm10.1] - [feb19] - PREVIEW 5". i am having a problem with any of my computers recognizing my Note. i have re-installed the device drivers on my computers and have checked and unchecked all the options in the usb menu, MTP, Camera and usb storage......nothing is working, but the Note does charge thru the usb. i have tried Airdroid and it works ok, the only thing is that it doesn't support viewing the sd card, only the internal storage on the phone. Am i the only one with this problem or am i doing something wrong?

Thanks for letting know about this app, but unfortunately it did nothing for me. i installed the app, i have android debugging checked, i gave it root permission, and tried both MTP and Mass Storage and rebooted and nothing happened. PC still does not see it. did i do something wrong?

It's the rom atm I believe, I have the same exact issue, just use AirDroid, it works very well. If they ever fix this USB issue, I probably will never go back to it, AirDroid is so much better.

Re: 4.2.2 usb not detected
I think its the kernel, and I'm sure Jamie will see how to fix that.

So Airdroid is a good work around? How is the transfer speed for photos?

yes...it is a very good work around. ive been using it since i figured out how to access my sd card. its pretty fast. as soon as i hit "ok" to download a pic from my phone to my pc its already done before the "save file" dialog box closes.

Here's the answer.

If you use a fast charge kernel it cuts off USB.

Switch kernels or turn off fast charge before you connect to your PC.

your post got me thinking.......so i did a little test.

since i am using 41g-4Aces-26-0219 kernel that supports the fast charge option i went to the fast charge settings and it is unticked (off) by default. i ticked (on) and it told me fast charge would be enabled if the kernel supported it blah blah blah. then i turned fast charge back off and plug in my phone and BOOM! USB storage worked again.
i think some how fast charge is actually enable when you first flash the kernel but it shows as not enabled in the fast charge menu option....
so long story short....fast charge was enabled but i never enabled it nor did it show as enabled.
thank you sir,,,,
