This is mostly a note to myself, but I’m sharing it in hopes that it might help someone else.

Here’s how to mount the filesystem of a Nexus 7 tablet under Fedora 17. It will probably work for other Fedora versions and for other devices that use MTP to share their filesystems. The recipe is simple:

sudo yum install simple-mtpfs
mkdir -p ~/mnt/nexus7
simple-mtpfs ~/mnt/nexus7 \# fs is now mounted on ~/mnt/nexus7

To unmount:

fusermount -u ~/mnt/nexus7
