Google: buys Android
Makes tons of $ from Ads
Meanwhile 7 year old bugs
Are still not fixed

A bug reported in 2012: recently created files are not visible when using MTP protocol.

Guess what? I still have this bug on my 2017 phone, like many other people.
Probably has something to do with file cache.

Because obviously 7 years is not enough to fix a stupid bug. Especially when Google is busy implementing all the other features nobody asked for except marketing department

    The mtp server scans for new files on startup and the on schedule every 30 mins if i remember correctly. That happens in order to prevent battery drain and it was a common problem in the first custom roms.
    So the bug is the fix for the actual bug.

    Mtp is still shit and useless. No thumbnails, slow copy speed, only one file at a time... Basically useless for backups idk why we had to drop the USB mass storage option. I get that you couldn't use the SD while mounted but damn if you gonna fuck something up and make it freaking slow at least fix your shit...

    Yeah mtp sucks. Better transfer over wifi using either a ftp server or rsync. Or use a memory stick like with any other computer.

    @ilikeglue Mass storage gives host raw access to entire filesystem. Exclusive access required, doesn't work for internal storage because it shares filesystem with other stuff, requires host support for ext4/F2FS, users can break stuff by changing permissions or formatting entire partition.
