Default [QUESTION] SSHFS or something akin to it for Android?

I'm really looking for an app that I can use to SSHFS essentially, so that I can sorta' use a mounted remote dir as an extension of my phones storage, much like you would do in normal, every-day linux.

Is there such a thing? To date, I have not been able to find anything...

You would first need to get Fuse working with the kernel. If/once we can boot custom kernels, it's possible one might ship with Fuse enabled but according to

http://groups.google.com/group/andro...6dda136ce772cb

stock does not have Fuse. Stock does support modules though and I'm fairly sure you can compile Fuse as a module. You'd need to get ahold of the Droid 3 stock kernel source, cross compile a module for Arm and try and get it to not kernel panic the phone. Once you have Fuse in there, it shouldn't be too bad to build a copy of sshfs.

In the mean time, I have found https://market.android.com/details?id=nextapp.fx to be an incredible file manager that support SSH, SMB, and FTP. The only thing missing would be root.

Anyway, I think Fuse support would be awesome but don't have time to work on it at the moment. Do we have the D3 kernel source somewhere?

Yes, D3 source has been released. There's a thread on it here on XDA in the dev section. Thank's for the info!
