It's BEYOND garbage, no matter what OS I run it on. For example it fails to see recent files in my podcast client DoggCatcher directory so I can export it, so I have to manually upload via DropBox and pull it down from there - WTF??????????? On both my Nexus devices... IT'S CRAP!!!I very much wish we did. MTP is absolute garbage.
It's still crap no matter what. For example being unable to see latest files in the DoggCatcher directory is just retarded, when a file manager sees the OPML export fine but I have to export via DropBox, and how it complains about MP3 files and so on.You are still mounting as mtp in Linux though.
The op is requesting a method to Mount as a storage device rather than the standard media device which is native to the nexus 4

Yes. You can push and pull any directory you'd like.ADB push may work in recovery then if I need it... and can you ADB push an entire directory? Say if I have recorded radio streams, can I just pull up ADB in Linux and 'sync' or push the entire directory and be done with it?
Can you share how you managed to mount the SD card as USB storage?I think somewhere in ICS OR JB (I'm on Carbon KitKat) they introduced a method to disconnect your SD card from the phone and mount it as USB storage. A bit convoluted, but it works perfect on my Ubuntu machine allowing for instant-updates and parallel file operations.
