Run below on terminal; sudo gedit ~/.android/adb_usb.ini and your adb_usb.ini file should look like: # ANDROID 3RD PARTY USB VENDOR ID LIST -- DO NOT EDIT. # USE ...

I too had the problem that my "asus padfone infinity" was not mounted through mtp. (adb worked though). Solution was to connect it through one of the USB3 Ports of my thinkpad instead of a usb2 port. Looks like the USB2 port is not recognized as usb2, or are devicenames for usb2 "usb1"? syslog when connecting to USB2 Port: Feb 21 13:59:55 t530 kernel: ...

I was once looking at doing this myself, but it wasn't guarenteed to work, depending on what model and spec of your tablet is. XDA Developers forums had quite a few devs trying out different custom ROMs to get Ubuntu to install and very few were successful, so you may want to head over there and read through what they tried. Since Ubuntu has already ...

Though this question is not at all related to ubuntu... Have a look at this Mac spoofer for andorid. It allows you to change MAC address of your rooted android phone till you reboot your device.

I know that this is not the place where to make Android Recommendations but the original question is about an Android APP.
