Hello guys,

I've a big problème with my new LG G2 international phone (french actually). I'm a new android user... I searched the forum before posting this and figured out that Android is not allowing USB Masse Storage Mode anymore... That we have to chose between MTP and PTP mode... Unfortunately, I'm a running Mac OS Mavericks that not support MTP mode natively.

I've installed the Android File Tranfer for Mac but it's not working. In MTP mode, the phone is detected by AFT but I'm getting the message "Could not find the selected storage." In MTP mode the phone is detected as a camera by the operating system but not by the AFT...

Do you know guys how can I fix this? It's really annoying... For the moment I'm using Airdroid to send file by WiFi but its realyl slow

My phone is rooted and developer mode is ON.

Cheers

I've found a solution since the usb drivers and PCsuite for MAC are available from LG. You have to download the USB drivers and PCsuite from LG web site, install them into you MAC and Android File Tranfer should work correctly It's works for me.
