As of Android 4.0 I believe they removed mass storage from all subsequent builds of android. They had a reason for it which I do not recall but it is not possible on any 4.0+ device no matter the hack.

MTP has several advantages over mass storage mode, some of which include:

1) storage can be accessed simultaneously by both the Android tablet/phone as well as the computer it is connected to by USB
2) does not need to be selected on the device after connecting USB (likely related to Item 1 above, as the storage no longer has to be "unmounted" from the device
3) app storage and user storage are now unified

Item 3 above is probably the primary reason for the move to MTP. And of course MTP has its drawbacks.

I've seen mass storage enabled on custom ROMs on other devices (HTC One X in particular). So it is possible. But whether we will ever see this on the Note 8 is another story.

I've tried these two:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2175747
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...storageenabler

But both didn't work...
Many people on 4.0 and higher got to enable Mass Storage Device mode..

So I was thinking about how to do that..


I'll wait till someone successfully make it able on NOTE 8.0

Thanks
