A little for your information everyone

I installed the cyanogen mod 12 which claimed to have usb mass storage enabled on it.
It does and this works perfectly and I am very pleased with the performance. Just a simple option when you connect the device to change to usb storage.

The following has enabled UMS without a hitch:

1. Download & install SManager script editor from Google Play Store
2. Create folder \KitKatUMS somewhere on the SD card
3. Place UMS & MTP script files from Alfons_Hetler's post (#27) into this new folder
4. Open SManager and open the UMS file
5. Select "Su" (green skull and crossbones icon), "Boot" (cogwheel icon), and "Bg" (& icon). (Note:Selecting "Boot" will ensure that the script enabling UMS mode is automatically run each time the phone starts up )
6. Select "Save" and "Run"

Note: If the phone is still in MTP mode, a one-time selection of Mass Storage Mode may be required within the USB Mass Storage Enabler app. I already had this app on my phone, before coming to this thread, and don't know if it's a prerequisite for having everything work

Thank you thank you thank you!
It worked! After the latest update I had some issues with this, but following your exact steps fixed this and I'm once again able to mount my S4 Mini's card as UMS.

I'm having an issue. Its mounting as a drive, but not a storage device. Its not opening like a storage device normally would. I'm running 4.4.2 Kit Kat on a sch i545. Please help me !!

Man it sucks that I can't connect my S5 to my car head unit. After reading the last few pages, will this method work for the Verizon S5?
