Cannot figure out why Google stopped supporting usb mass storage mode for android. I cannot figure out how to browse and transfer files between my android 7 phone on pc thru usb adaptor, currently it has to go over wifi with kdeconnect but its slow in comparison to usb.

Should be able to use mtp over usb like a camera (which uses ptp). There are technical reasons why mass-storage is not used.

Does kdeconnect auto enable this whilst usb inserted? I would rather mount android fs with usb mass storage mount /dev/android-bla /bla/mountpoint but mtp is wierd and requires its own toolset.

Unfortunately I use neither android nor kde...
I just know that mass storage on my N900 is VERY clunky and for good reason.
