[Q] Mass storage device, instead of MTP/PTP?
I have a stock SGH-I747M with Bell Canada. When I plug in my phone into my PC, it shows up as a "phone". When I plugged in my old Atrix into my PC, it showed up as a drive, aka USB Mass Storage Device, and I could do so much more with it. The biggest problem is that I can't use Treesize on the phone. Treesize doesn't know what the hell to do with an MTP or PTP device. I can see why they chose MTP instead of MSD, because you don't have to wait for it to mount/unmount, and both devices can use the storage at the same time. But that just means I'm never going to see the max USB transfer speed.
Is there any way to force it to connect in MSD mode? Or would that require rooting? I still have a 1 year warranty, so I'd rather not root if I don't have to. Yes I know I can unroot if I have to send it back, but what if my phone breaks and becomes so unusable that I cannot unroot?
DISCLAIMER: My post may be a repeat of a previously asked question. Please donít dismiss my question and tell me to "use the search". Sure, I may be able to find the answer by searching for it, digging thru dozens of locked threads, digging through pages of posts to find the one single answer I need...
But I have faith that there will be one decent human who is willing to save me the time of searching, and answer my repeat question.
