USB Mountr

A helper application to set the Mass Storage Device gadget up in Android kernels
Get it on F-Droid

How it works

Android kernels still include a USB MSD component in their device gadget nowadays, though it is mostly unused since Android started using MTP. Some OEM ROMs still use it to provide a drivers installation "disc", but it is otherwise useless.
This application leverages the module in order to let you use your device as a standard USB thumbdrive for the purpose of, e.g., booting a distro ISO.

Building

Standard gradle build process.

Contributions...

...are welcome, I'm looking for a better icon, and if you feel like implementing it before I do, a menu to create blank images. Feel free to translate the application to your own language as well.
