I've just uploaded version 3.20 of StickMount to the Play store, which should start redistributing it in a few hours.

This update brings some small cosmetic changes for pre-5.0 users, and the basic material color scheme for 5.0 users.

Much more importantly, it brings a number of changes to how SELinux is handled. This should fix a number of issues some users have been seeing with mounting, reading from and writing to devices - not just on 5.0, but all the way back to 4.3.

If you had issues with that before, be sure to try this new version and see if that solves the problem for you.

The discussion thread on XDA can be found here:


  • Basic L theming

  • Updated SELinux handling, fixes a number of mount/read/write issues on enforcing devices

There were a couple chainfire apps that I tried to put on my Note 2 that I had on a previous phone

Didn't work for me :'(

Haven't rooted this device yet

Not sure if I want to

+Lazhar Neftien dude, just backup one app with Titanium Backup. That will create a folder called TitaniumBackup on your Internal Storage. Use a file manager to move that folder to the usbStorage, and open Titanium Backup. Then preferences, backup folder location, and whole device. It should find that folder on your usbStorage and tell it to backup/restore from there, moving forward.

+muhammed shaheem​​ did you try a wifi network to update?you may not get OTA on a rooted device that has it's boot loader locked.Sideload a compatible app into your device called boot unlocker to lock back the bootloader...

muhammed shaheem commented on 2014-11-06 at 07:41:

Steven Porteous commented on 2014-11-06 at 10:48:

I had that on a past ROM for my Note 2

I found another ROM I liked better, and don't get annoyed by that broken update notification anymore

Note 2 running LiquidSmooth 4.4.4

I cannot get it to mount exFAT, I have the extra files in sdcard root.  Nexus 7 2013 5.0.   TWRP sees the dongle and reads/writes to it.

    Regarding with this app

My android phone is rooted,can i connect SD Card Reader with the help of OTG cable to my phone? Or it's only for specific models?

Dear Sir Chainfire,

I installed StickMount on my Galaxy S4 GT-I9505, and I put the ntfs-3g file inside the /sdcard directory but unfortunately the devices is not able to read my NTFS USB stick.

I still have the Android Version 4.3 but I could install 4.4.2 anytime. It this probably the problem because I'm not able to read my NTFS memory stick? Shall I have to purchase your full version for having this feature? Thank you in advance for your support. With best regards, Max

Dear Sir Mr Chain, I was wondering why when I mount my stick(exFat) it shows up only as sda1, but the same stick(ntfs) shows up with its name....

Travis Boone commented on 2015-02-04 at 12:55:

+Chainfire​ I'm having a terrible time trying to get stickmount Pro onto my Nexus player, I've installed the free version and tried to upgrade to pro within the app on the Nexus player itself but it takes me to a funny screen where I can't click into the Play Store or click on anything for that matter. Is there some other route I can take to sideload the pro version?

I'm hoping this will solve the issues I'm having with my USB Drive disappearing after a reboot or after the Nexus player has gone to sleep.

Any input you could provide me on what I'm doing wrong or what I can do to make this USB Drive work appropriately would be great.

The drive usually shows up as sda1 within ES File Explorer but then sometimes it doesn't show up at all until I rerun stickmount.
