Note: This question has been edited significantly based on new information, however, I think it still meets the original intent.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S 2. When I plug it into my computer by USB, this application called "Samsung Kies" comes up. It is, as far as I can tell, a proprietary Samsung system for connecting by USB to the computer which requires software on the computer side.
Even if my computer could run their software, I wouldn't want it to. I don't want their proprietary app, I just want to mount the Galaxy as an external USB HD, like Android does with its standard interface.
I can get at the standard interface by doing the following:
Settings -> Wireless and network -> USB Utlities
In that interface, under the heading "USB mass storage", there is a button that says "Connect storage to PC". If I click this button, a notification comes up saying I can now plug in the USB. If I plug in the USB cable at this point, then the usual Android interface comes up (green android with USB arm picture) and then I can press the connect button.
So I can do it, but I have to press the screen 5 times just to connect the USB!
With my previous phone, the HTC Magic, when I plugged in the USB, it automatically showed me the standard USB connect screen, and so with one touch I could connect.
I can't find any way of disabling or removing this unwanted Samsung Kies software, or making the standard Android USB connect the default.
Is this possible, and if so, how?
