Need to access your phone files, use a USB flash drive, USB cable, or transfer over WiFi.
A USB-C flash drive or using Jumpdrive is secure and fast. Once attached to your Librem device, your file manager will auto-detect and mount your flash storage.
You can install a test version of Jumpdrive right from this app. With Jumpdrive installed, you can expose the internal hard drive by holding volume up immediately after the boot indication light turns on. If done correctly, the indication light will turn a blue-green color. When prompted, connect your phone with a USB cable to access your files.
If you want to transfer over a network, the included python HTTP server is a simple way to browse and upload files. Make sure to use only on trusted networks; this does not support logins.
Copying files over your network securely is simple with sshfs. This is a handy way to mount your phone to a local folder on your desktop computer. Once connected, the file manager will allow you to browse to your phone.
These are just a few simple ways to transfer files; you can also set up services like sftp or samba with a bit of effort and turn your Librem 5 into a full network file server.
Share files how you want, and order your Librem 5 at Puri.sm
