Automatically mount and dismount USB sticks on most Android devices.
More about [root] StickMount
Automatically mount and dismount USB sticks on various devices like the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. It does not supports Nexus 4 – this is an issue with the device, not with StickMount! StickMount Pro supports triggering the media scanner on each (un)mount action. This will automatically make the files on your USB device available in apps like Gallery and Music. Please note that the media scanner is not a visible process on all Android devices – it might actually work silently in the background without any visual cues. It may take a minute for your files to show up, so don’t panic if they don’t show immediately.
The filesystems supported depends on your device firmware. On most devices, StickMount supports at least vfat/fat/fat32 and ext2/3/4 formats. On the latest Android versions, ntfs is also supported in read-only mode. Some devices also support exfat out the box, but most do not.
StickMount can utilize the “ntfs-3g” and “mount.exfat-fuse” binaries to add support for ntfs (untested) and exfat, but these are not included. If you place the “ntfs-3g” or “mount.exfat-fuse” files in the root of your internal storage ( /sdcard ), StickMount will automatically use them.
For some users, StickMount appears not to work, while in fact it is the device itself or the cable not working. One OTG cable is not the other OTG cable. If you have a USB stick with a light on it, it should light up when you connect it to the Galaxy Nexus using your OTG cable. If it does not, either your cable or your Nexus is faulty. 99 out of 100 times it is going to be your cable. That the cable works fine with another device does not mean anything! Cables known to work on a one devices may not work on another device.
