Default Mount as USB storage

Hi guys. I'm trying to mount via USB instead of mtp so I can plug my phone directly into my TV and play media via USB cable.

I've tried StickMount and a few other mass storage apps however haven't found one that works for me.

Anyone know of a way to mount via USB mass storage?

Unfortunately not, however I have a WIFI TV connected to my router as is my phone.

For now I have just been sharing my media via Wifi direct to the TV. Not sure if it actually supports 1080p but it's the best I got just now.

Google removed MTP in Android 4.1.2. It can only mount as a network drive now.

Did you try turning on USB Debugging? It might work.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
