I've extracted vold file to the root of my SDcard, then with terminal emulator, I did :

su
cp /sdcard/vold /system/bin/
chmod 777 /system/bin/

It seemed fine, but when i plug my phone to computer, mass storage does not activate. Have I no choice but to use ADB for this fix?

Window minimizes on tytungs build, only on first boot it works. This is a known issue and there is no fix jet. On MDJ's build al is working correct.
Maybe it is possible to download a market app that works and i think i have seen someone mention a PC program to explore your phone. Droid explorer i think, but not sure.

Sent from my Nexus One using XDA App

    After 15 min. of inspecting logs i found fix for USB Mass Storage on Gingerbread builds. They changed some interfaces in volume manager (vold), so i prepared fixed version of vold.

    Usage: BACKUP /system/bin/vold

    copy fixed vold to /system/bin/
    (adb push vold /system/bin )

    - also check file permissions after pushing (best to set 777)
    if your system is mounted as ro remount it by: mount -o remount,rw /system

    EDIT: Forgot to mention to reboot phone after changing vold :)

    USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK !!!
    IF U HAVE SOME PROBLEMS WITH THIS VOLD JUST REPLACE IT WITH BACKUP U MADE (u made backup, right ? )

    This fix worked perfectly. If anybody has trouble, I highly recommend using Root Explorer or similar. I just pasted it in and it worked. No need to mess with adb or even change permissions.
