I’m using the Fairphone2 Open OS.
Since the topic https://forum.fairphone.com/t/fairphone-2-os-version-1-2-8-usb-otg-mounting/16397/21 proves to be definitely centered around Fairphone2 Android OS v1.2.8, I start this topic for the Open OS only.
The problem and questions remain the same, though:
- The USB port and adapter cable work: USB mouse tested.
- USB-OTG works:
mount -t vfat /dev/block/sda1 /storage/usbotglets Amaze show the files (although with a wrong encoding of latin characters), however I cannot umount after that…
But USB drive automatic detection and mount, as well as GUI “eject/un-mount”, seem absent.
- Is this a bug (a regression to be fixed), or a “feature” where Lollipop differs from JellyBeans?
- Has Fairphone Support Team acknowledged this issue or not?
- Will this issue be fixed or not? When?
Also please note that while the Mountie app does somewhat help, it seems to only work if I 1º launch the Mountie app, 2º exit the Mountie app, and 3º swipe off-screen the Mountie app (!!) in the task-list (bottom-right square “button”), each time I have inserted an USB flash drive! At least that’s the only way I can see my files so far…
Many thanks for providing a rooted Google-free OS! And thanks in advance for any help on this disturbing issue.
