Read/Write to NTFS AND multiple USB hard drives!
Well, I have been on a mission for the past few days not only to allow r/w for NTFS on the Mojo, but also to be able to use more than one USB device (hard drives, sticks) at once. I noticed by default if I had my 2TB HD connected and then connected another drive, the second drive would not show up. Not until the first drive was unmounted. Basically, one drive at a time. Well, this does not cut it for me as I would like to be able to leave my 2TB connected to the hub and then connect a secondary drive whenever I wanted to move items over to the larger drive. After testing various applications, I FINALLY found the fix.
Initially I tried Paragon NTFS, and while that worked, it was buggy. The NTFS drive would not unmount sometimes, and I had to mount it to a custom folder even to get it to work.
But then, I tried Chainfire's "Stickmount". It works! It re-mounts your drives to /sdcard/usbStorage/sda1, sdb1, etc. My 2TB is sda1, when I connect my 500GB NTFS it is sdb1, etc. Copying/moving/deleting on NTFS works (my 500GB is formatted NTFS) and copying from one drive to another works. It all just works. The program auto loads on reboot and auto mounts everything. If I use the app to unmount, it will unmount the last mounted drive first (my 500GB, then my 2TB if I choose again) which works out beautifully. Now I can leave my 2TB media drive in there at all times, and if I want to either bring something to it or work with some other files on a USB stick...well I just have to insert it and in a few seconds it is also mounted
I had to reroute all of my emulators paths to look for my roms at the new location and Poweramp to look at the new location for my MP3's, but thats all. Now I have multiple drive support as well as NTFS r/w support. Fantastic. I tried rebooting several times and it remounts each time. Read various games, movies and so on from the mounted drives and everything works.
Just a heads up on this EASY fix. What an awesome application! All you need for this is root
