Re: USB devices that work with OS4.1 Update 5

Bought an samsung s3.

I have bad news. UMS (masstorage) is removed in Samsung S3. They use PTP/MTP instead. On windows it feels almost the same you see it as partition and can move files etc. Probably little slower. It should be more safe as masstorage can be corrupted. On x1000 using update5 PTP window shows error messages. So you cant see it as a partition nor copy pictures with PTP.
However you can install an app called "Kies Air" on the phone. That way you can access the phone with owb/timberwolf and see a nice gui with categories/media etc. It needs java and flash for some operations like multiple file down/upload. Without it you can up/download one file at time. Its slower too as it goes thru wifi/3g.

Ofcourse theres faster way to send/receive more files and its thru FTP, still slower then using cable and masstorage but faster then using a webbrowser. And theres ofcourse other protocols.

Too bad that they didnt leave at least UMS support for external memory cards.
