NOTICE: This content was originally posted to Google+, then imported here. Some formatting may be lost, links may be dead, and images may be missing.

This release brings:

  • Support for Android 4.2 (which took quite some time to figure out, even though the solution ended up being rather simple)

  • A number of minor bugfixes

  • exFAT support (one-time manual action needed, please see app description on Play)

There's now also a Pro version ( ) - as requested and suggested by a fair number of users - which enables these additional features:

  • Automatically kill apps that are keeping files open and preventing unmounts from succeeding

  • Trigger the media scanner on (un)mount, making your files available to apps like Gallery and Music

Enjoy, and don't forget to "buy me a beer" (get Pro) !

Thank you +Chainfire I don't know what the Android community would do without you!

Paul Boon commented on 2012-11-20 at 18:30:

Thanks for the update. Will get the pro version as you deserve a beer for the work you do.

Paul Boon commented on 2012-11-20 at 18:45:

Respect dude. Thanks for all the effort and time you put in to all these amazing apps.

+Ron Peters So far it appears to be a firmware issue, everybody who wants the Nexus 4 to support OTG, please star this bugreport:

Dan Andreșan commented on 2012-11-20 at 19:19:

Bought it. Enjoy your beer, you deserve it!

Jonathon Thrumble commented on 2012-11-20 at 19:23:

Oh and I bought mobile odin for my s3 this morning. Perfect. U have made my pc redundant! And my flash-itus an easier addiction to cope with.

Paul Boon commented on 2012-11-20 at 19:26:

+Guido Varzi did you just by the pro which is just a license file or did you also upgrade the standard free app as well, which you also need to do.

Paul Boon commented on 2012-11-20 at 20:36:

+Guido Varzi when I first updated the app, my flash drive got mounted and all appeared empty as before. I had to unmount then remount using stick mount. Also not sure if you have done so, but assume you have. Rerooted your Nexus 7 since applying the 4.2 update

Peter Radcliffe commented on 2012-11-20 at 20:38:

Thanks for this. Beer bought :)

denis sorn commented on 2012-11-20 at 20:43:

Thanks, have just bought Pro.

Lee Gaul commented on 2012-11-20 at 20:43:

You are the man (or woman?)! Thanks +Chainfire

James Fletcher commented on 2012-11-20 at 21:31:

THANKS Bought the pro upgrade in support of your efforts

[NoobQuestion] If I root my Galaxy Nexus, will I still get OS updates if my device is Corp managed? [/NoobQuestion] This sounds AMAZING!

Shane Monroe commented on 2012-11-20 at 23:06:

Paid my three bones to show support.  I'm a CIFS guy, but OTG is a nice backup away from home.

Thanks for the kick ass job on EVERYTHING you do.

Shane Monroe commented on 2012-11-21 at 04:23:

Strange .. Still not working here .. Same issues as before.  Says it mounts, gives me the mount point, but the point is empty. :( remounting didn't help nor cycling the cable.  The cable is good, I've used it before 4.2.


Moe Shah Azman commented on 2012-11-21 at 12:45:

You beautiful, beautiful man.

Marty Ballard commented on 2012-11-21 at 12:53:

+Chainfire Nexus 4 owner here, I stared the issue you mentioned above.

Ed T. commented on 2012-11-22 at 00:37:

Enjoy your beer!

Klaus Villaca commented on 2012-11-22 at 22:09:

Just bought the pro version that's cheap taking in count that we now can have nearly unlimited storage.

JT Hundley commented on 2012-11-23 at 21:03:

Thank you for fixing Stickmount! I just bought the pro version, I hope you enjoy a tasty beer my friend!

Nathan Groenendal commented on 2012-11-24 at 14:00:


Jim DeArras commented on 2012-11-25 at 18:43:

any hope for a version that worked as well as it did under 4.1 or should I roll back for now?

AL Drummond commented on 2012-11-27 at 03:06:

Tried the free, worked so well that I turned around and went Pro. Thanks for this and several other apps.

saied Vanguard commented on 2012-11-28 at 07:31:

4.2.1 is already here

Roel Van der Plank commented on 2012-11-28 at 13:04:

Ha, but what was the solution....

I have a sh script lying around with which I mount an encrypted folder. This no longer works because apps that needs to read this folder cannot access it/sees it as 'empty'.

Would love to duplicate your solution for making the mount 'cross-app-applicable'...

Li Cao commented on 2012-12-01 at 11:19:

great job!

AL Drummond commented on 2012-12-01 at 13:08:

Works well on our Nexus 7, doesn't work on 2 of our Galaxy tablets. GT-P7510&GT-P6210

Chainfire commented on 2012-12-02 at 19:36:

...Edited... See 2.10 release.

JT Hundley commented on 2012-12-02 at 20:52:

There was actually another Android update which seems to break Stickmount again. I'm on 4.2.1 and Stickmount was working fine for me with 4.2 after your update. I'll try out that new testing Stickmount and let you know.

Как настроить

The Jesse Box USA commented on 2012-12-21 at 21:25:

Well, nexus 7 user w JB4.2. Found sdcard/USB. But is empty. Stick mount opens by default. With a note it is searching then msg fades away. I assume it connected. Empty USB directory when flash is connected. Flash lights up and all appear connected.
