comment Remove unneeded 'system apps', and notifications (tool)
Can you provide a better explanation? I can do the cumbersome method, and don't need to 'root' the phone. What can I do, after I 'root' my phone?

Is this a first generation (custom Android 2.3 / 'Gingerbread') or second generation (custom Android 4.0.x / 'Ice Cream Sandwich') Kindle Fire device?

comment MTP mounts vs USB storage - restrictions
The timestamp issue should be raised as a separate question. It is mostly the old 'push' / 'pull' problem, with the recipient host not honouring the (remote) timestamp. This can be circumvented by copying 'from', instead of 'to', the target location.

I've tried most of these. They don't seem very stable ,and do not generally work for Samsung devices.

comment Samsung Galaxy Y won't connect to the computer
Thanks. I get prompted (for MTP or PTP) when I plug in an SGS3 Mini (with 4.1.1). It connects (but does not work) under Nautilus/Ubuntu 12.10. But for my Samsung Tab2 7.0 tablet (with 4.0.3) I have no USB settings (except enable/disable debugging). My PC does not even detect the device attached.

It is the same issue raised, but I was saying needs to be closed as duplicate. However, suggested answers for one may work for the other ..
