Expose the sd-card of the Jolla phone over USB

Submit to reddit

I know there are many ways to get content onto the Jolla phone (rsync over ssh springs to mind) but for large files I still prefer USB. Having just bought a 64Gb micro-sd I wanted to copy the bulk of my music and videos using USB. BTW this is the card I bought and works great (formatted as btrfs) Kingston 64GB Class 10

There is one easy step to do. Start the terminal and create a symlink to the card on the phone:

1

3

[nemo@argo ~]$ devel-su
Password:
[root@argo nemo]# cd /home/nemo
[root@argo nemo]# ln -s /run/user/100000/media/sdcard/

That’s it, the folder sdcard in the root of your phone is actually the sd card (windows will report free space on the phone only, though)
