I have two Android 4.x devices, one 4.0.2 and another 4.4.2. On both, I have installed SSHelper to push data to and from the device using
rsync. It worked, but the new environment does not even have a usable
rm. I would like to switch over to something that works better and possibly faster.
My next attempt was to use MTP over USB with
mtpfs, but that does not work, it freezes.
simple-mtpfs is not packaged for Ubuntu 13.10. KDE KIO is able to read from the device over MTP, but that does not help me at all, since I want to write my own script using
rsync, and it is not able to write to it.
Then I tried
sshfs, I do not get any errors mounting it, but I get IO-errors whenever I even try to
cd into the mountpoint. I guess the environment with SSHelper lacks something. It does not work with HTTPS and FTPS Server either. The SFTP provided with the latter works with Filezilla, though.
So how can I get
/sdcard to be mounted somewhere on my Linux machine and copy and delete files from it like I want?
