Mount Your Transformer Onto Linux Mint (And Others)

So, one of the most annoying drawbacks of the Asus Transformer is the fact that you pretty much cannot mount the device onto your computer to see and check the contents of your device. This is something that most eons for most devices have nowadays, yet the powerful Honeycomb tablet seems to lack this functionality that we are so used to. For Linux distrust in general, this is usually a bit of a bigger ordeal to get this up and running, yet some of our devastated still manage to turn seemingly difficult tasks into a matter of a few clicks. This time, XDA member rootblock has released a small script to be run in Linux Mint, which is a flavor of Linux. The script is fairlyeasy to run, and once it is run, it will allow you to plug your tablet to your PC and see what’s inside. The deg also mentions that other distros may be compatible with the script, but are untested.

Please leave some feedback for the dev and also if you are testing this on other versions of Linux, so that a list of working and non working flavors can be compiled.

For anyone looking for a way to mount their Transformer to Linux Mint, I wrote a script to automate the process of configuring your machine to allow you to browse/modify files on the tablet’s SSD. This will probably also work on Ubuntu, but I have only so far tested it on Linux Mint.

You can find more information in the application thread.
