[APP][02/26] Nook Color USB Mass Storage utility - Mount any partition to your PC
I've compiled a simple app to be able to easily mount to your PC
any given partition.
Feel free to donate if this app is of any use to you. Much appreciated.
Please note that changes to the drive will not be saved if you do not properly unmount/eject the drive from PC (in Ubuntu: right click, unmount. In Windows, eject.).
For those using stock browser, apk files often fail to download.. You can install Astro explorer and activate downloads in settings (last option). Then you should be able to download this file.
Dolphin should work without issues..
This is a Beta
This requires a working root (su). By that I mean your nook must be rooted. Regarding HC, see j4mm3r's thread.
This can be used, for example, to open your SD or internal data on your PC..
You can mount pretty much any partition to your computer with this app:
- Media (internal drive for your media and documents...)
- SD Partitions (up to 4)
- Internal storage - BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THIS!!
There are two "mount points" on the nook (lun0 and lun1)
So you can simultanously mount two partitons.
As an example, you can mount SD on 1st and MEDIA on the 2nd.
Each mount point has it's own tab.
Please try it out and post feedback.
This has been tested on HoneyComb and Froyo (not in Eclair 1.0>1.1).
In Froyo: USB Mass Storage (Notification bar) should be turned off.
Compatibility mode will need to be disabled in Spare parts (reboot required).
If this doesn't work for you, try entering manually in ADB while NC plugged in to your PC:
echo /dev/block/mmcblk0p8 > /sys/devices/platform/usb_mass_storage/lun0/file
And post result here.
=> minor bugs and made app scrollable for Froyo Landscape
- Changed 'settings' label (mistake) to system.
- Added a "Make sure you properly unmount/eject drive from PC when finished" message when mounting.
- Added dual boot system and data (p9 and p10).
- Changed 'Confirm mounting' to 'Confirm', as poster suggested. Thanks.
