Damn Sony, why don't you use mass storage mode like everybody else?

Weird. No segfaults for me. What distro are you using?

if you use gnome, there is no problem, the Gnome own file manager can handle MTP devices (testet with Linux Mint & Linux mint Debian Edition) - if you maybee use xfce, so use Banshee player to put Files from and to the SXS.

also gthumb can handle MTP, but it sucks...

got, as a linux noob also problem with MTP and linux - so another possibility is the App Airdroid or FTPDroid on the phone and Filezilla on Desktop, but its damn slow

if you got root, install the MSC Mounter from DooMLord

This is my first MTP device and all I can say is MTP sucks!
I can't understand how engineer can make decision to use MTP instead of mass storage mode. Is even not easier to use. I think I'll just fire up samba and connect over wireless.

In GB Sony used a licensed MTP stack (MtpApp that is), made by these guys: http://www.aricent.com/
However it turns out that it's 1) the only implementation of MTP available on 2.x and 2) horribly slow. In ICS, they've switched to Google's stack (obviously), so it works waaaay better. You should try it with a Honeycomb/ICS device or flash CM9.

I would add that there is no sense to use it on smartphone. It may be ok on media player of camera, but on device that you use almost like computer it's nonsense!

When I buy new device first couple days/weeks I use it stock to test that everything functions ok.
But first I have to send it back for repair (yellow tint) and after that wait for unofficial BL unlock because my device is not allowed to unlock.
