My Android Phone Won't Mount Anymore

(Valerie) #1

Briefly describe your issue below:

I have 2x Galaxy S7 phones & both of these would be recognized in Mate under “Places.” I would then just double click on the menu item, to log onto my phones. Of course, I would have to allow this on the phone, when the popup appeared. Parrot, no longer even recognizes either of my phones; so no item appears in the menu under “Places.” Perhaps, this is a new security feature? I do however have to frequently transfer files to my phone. Is there a way to do this?


What version of Parrot are you running? (include version, edition, and architecture)
Operating System: Parrot GNU/Linux 4.4
Kernel: Linux 4.18.0-parrot20-amd64
Architecture: x86-64

What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)

Provided installer

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no) No.

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:


Well there are several ways to access a removable device assuming it has the necessary support(updates/upgrades to the Android system maybe the culprit) but if I understand this right the phones dont appear in on the menus anymore, yes? Have you looked with a file manager, you may have to enable volume managment in the manager preferences. If not in the sidepane window you should check the /mnt(mount) dir/part and see if anything is there.

lshw, lsblk or lsusb from terminal should help also. Might also just be that you haven’t set the automount remove device options.

No it’s not security feature
I faced this problem long time ago…
That time solved by login in root user

I also Have S7 and it’s mount perfectly
Without any error

Yes for transfer your files Best way is use
Shareit It’s will Tramsfer In LAN (Most fast😁) . This is best way when USB not working

As Your Error I Think Mistaken Some Driver will deleted
Type blkid And see what it’s Mounted or not
This time not know perfect solution
You may try to upgrade system
I will post solution , i am going to do experiment with it

Try to add your android during boot



I Managed to create fully working script for it
not need to do anything jusrt run


  1. Download This script
  2. Run ./ as root
  3. After install done Reboot Your System


  1. Plug Your Android

  2. Give File Transfer

  3. Open Application>Sound And Video>gMTP
    it Take time For Detect [ Cuz i am noob at programming ]
    little system hanged up but wait for 5 min
    after that it works :wink:
