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?

Storage UMS succesful on rooted SG4 I9505
Hi guys

I just came across this thread, trying to get my SG4 I9505 to switch to USB Mass Storage mode, instead of the useless MTP mode.

The app called "Mass Storage Mode Note3*ROOT" from "Sanjo" works for me.
Its a very simple app, that does only and exactly that - switches between UMS and MTP.
UMS-mode sticks around even after disconnecting and reconnecting USB-cable, but after phone-reboot I need to run the app and click "UMS" again.

Please note: The app requires ROOT.
Please note: My SG4 I9505 is running a wanam lite 4.4.2 rom (which is quite close to stock, but much nicer optimized and perfectly stable).

I hope this helps someone out there (this is also my first post here

Best Regards,
Erik

This worked for me:
Mass Storage Enable Routine for the External SD Cad on Samsung Galxy S3 I9305 with KitKat Android 4.4.4 Build KTU84P.I9305xxufnl1
1. Root the phone!
2. Update the SU Libraries (SUperSu on PlayStore)!
3. Install Mass Storage Mode Note3*ROOT (PlayStore)!
4. Install SManager (Script Manager , PlayStore)!
5. Create folder KitKatUMS somewhere on the internal SD card!
6. Place the scripts from the ZIP File into the KitKatUMS Folder!
Here is the text of the Enable Script (File Name “Mass Storage Mode”:
setprop persist.sys.usb.config mass_storage,adb
echo /dev/block/vold/179:17 > /sys/devices/platform/s3c-usbgadget/gadget/lun0/file
7. Open the Script File “Mass Storage Mode” with SManager
8. 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 )
9. Select "Save" and "Run"
10. Open the Enabler (Install Mass Storage Mode Note3*ROOT (PlayStore)
11. Select MSM Mode
If the Solution does not work with your phone, try folowing:
- Solution 2: The Path “…*/s3c-usbgadget/gadget/lun0/file” is not correct. Go to /sys/devices/platform/ using File Explorer and try to findout the corect driver path
- Solution 3: “179:17” is not the correct parameter... Open the mounted-devices-list (<root>/proc/mount) with text editor and look for the access parameter of your SD card.

For instance look for similar text: “/dev/block/vold/179:17 /mnt/media_rw/extsdCard vfat

Usually “179:17” or “s3c-usbgadget” are to be replaced with the proper values.
JJdoctor used in the primary script (Post #2) msm_hsusb instead s3c-usbgadget
Corect the script file with the proper text and try again!

All this is on your own risk!
