comment Is there an ICS ROM for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that has camera support?
I'm voting to close my own question, as I don't want to start any controversies, and it seems that this question can be taken differently than I had intended.

comment How do I get my phone to connect the internal SD by USB?
If I go to System Settings -> Wireless & networks -> More..., I do not see a "USB Utilities" option. I have "Airplane Mode", "VPN", "Tethering & Portable hotspot", "Wi-Fi direct", and "Mobile networks". The ROM I used to upgrade is the "Android Open KANG Project". As far as I understand it is a fairly reliable ROM, but I have to admit I do not know enough about ROMs to make definitive judgments. It came recommended, that's all I know.

Thank you for responding. I had not noticed the storage options before. On my phone, the menu option is accessed by a button, so it does not appear in the screen shots. In any case, I have found it and tried the options presented. Please see my updated question for details. I have also cleaned up and fleshed out my question with more accurate details. Lastly, I have never removed the SD card without first unmounting and turning off the phone, so I don't think that is a source of the problem. :)

@lenik: I'm not sure, but I don't think it was Gingerbread. It was 2.3 or somewhere in the 2.x range.

Also, I should note that I just tested on my laptop, and I get the same problem of not seeing my internal SD card, so it seems less likely to me that the problem is on the Ubuntu side. It's not absolute proof, but it does seem unlikely that both computers would have the same settings issues.

Thank you for responding. Running lsusb gets me this response: Bus 002 Device 011: ID 04e8:685b Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd GT-I9100 Phone [Galaxy S II] (mass storage mode). However, after following your instructions to the letter, I still only see the 12GB internal storage.

comment How do I get my phone to connect the internal SD by USB?
@UriHerrera: Thanks for responding. It doesn't seem to be the case with my phone in its current state. There is an /sdcard directory, but when mounted by USB, if I transfer files there, they are then on the internal storage, not the external SD card. Also, the drive only shows 12GB available, whereas I should have 12GB + an additional 16GB for the SD card. Lastly, Banshee does not automatically recognize the 16GB space where my music files like it did before, which is problematic. The last thing I want to do is start fighting with Banshee settings to get it to see a subdirectory.

comment Why do all the directories on my tablet have all these weird numbers?
@hheimbuerger: I'm not running 4.0.3. I'm running 3.2. I wanted to run ICS on my Galaxy Tab, but apparently there isn't support for the camera yet.
