I cannot get it to work in USB 3.0 mode.
I used the supplied cable, a retractable USB 3.0 cable. Both work fine with MTP in USB 2.0 but I can't get any of three diffrent PC's with USB 3.0 ports to actually connect with USB 3.0!
This was a selling point for me on the phone and it has never worked. What am I missing? Or is it a broken feature?
And yes a Xposed module to disable this would be tits. Other vendor's models of the Note 3 don't force this...so what gives Verizon.
Yes. I am using USB 3.0. Most of the problems I faced were related to Windows 7 Ultimate recognizing my new USB3.0 PCIe card and unsigned drivers. What a friggin nightmare. In the end, i had to install/uninstall the drivers from device manager several times. I also had to manually delete my old USB root hub crap left over from my old USB2.0 hub.
I still don't get it. USB 3.0 is awesome fast, but MTP and PTP are not very fast for indexing thumbnails of images. If i want to copy 1GB of images, it is fast, but if i want to scroll down half way and find one image visually, it is painfully slow.
Plus Verizon activates USB3.0 in airplane mode. If left unattended for 5 minutes, it will deactivate USB3.0 and turn radio back on. WTF is that crap?
