USB Mass Storage App for the LG Optimus 4X
A while back, several XDA members were concerned with MTP. For those who don’t know, MTP stands for Media Transfer Protocol and it replaced USB Mass Storage on a good number of Android devices as the de facto way of connecting to a computer. There were quite a few problems with this—none bigger than some operating systems not working well with MTP. Our TV crew has discussed solutions before, but not every device had a solution for MTP. Now, LG Optimus 4X HD users have a solution.
XDA Forum Member bullghost has released an application that gets USB Mass Storage working on the Optimus 4X HD. The tool started out simple at first, but over the last few weeks it has gotten a number of stability and usability updates. Currently, it is on version 3.0.
Using the application is pretty simple. Users will install the app just like any other APK. From there, simply open the app and follow the instructions. Once all the settings are in place, users will be able to connect to their computers and use USB Mass Storage instead of MTP. This will definitely be helpful to those Optimus 4X HD owners who use an operating system that doesn’t support MTP.

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta. Having its top apps on Android was just a stepping stone...
