[Q] Apple Mac OSX & Support for MTP
I have spent many hours traulling the net, scanning through forums across multiple websites and found no information on how to make my device which in its current software incarnation currently seems to only allow MTP as the option for transferring data via the USB cable to and from my Mac running OSX 1.7.3.
, that that google app for file transfers DOES NOT WORK (for me). I cannot get it to work no matter which god I've prayed to or what kinda dance I did. So I looked for alternatives.
ADB worked, but I got tired of ADB to push files across (which is effective, but not what I would call fun). I came across MacPort, giving us ports of Linux/Unix stuff in the world of OSX. YAY!
Found that the various libraries for MTP and MTP-FS was ported! YAY!
After installing the hell out of macport (found: www macports org) and runing the updates.
Drop to the command line and then run these commands once:
sudo port install libmtp
sudo port install mtpfs
Every time you load your device:
Awesome! Progress, plug in the device and run mtpfs. But then I get this:
bergenmacbook:Applications bergenlarsen$ sudo mtpfs
