    Default Help! My computer won't recognize my Nexus

    It's been a couple of months since I rooted and most recently flashed AOKP 40 and Franco 200. I tried to connect to my computer yesterday and it won't mount. Any suggestions? I know I have all the drivers. Perhaps a ROM or kernel issue? Thanks!

    ROM
    AOKP

    If I'm not mistaken francos 200 was a Jellybean test kernel.. While aokp is definitely still ICS based. This can easily cause a problem if that's indeed what you did.

    EDIT: And if that's the case, download an earlier franco kernel (say a milestone or anything really) to your phone and just flash that.

    Do you have the adb/fastboot drivers? Can you get it to show up in a device list?

    ROM
    Some Jelly Bean ROM

    Default

    Gotta be a snarky nerd here.

    1. Download and install Ubuntu (yay! No more drivers!)

    2. Set up adb (super simple) and fastboot (a little more work)

    And that should be it. Heck, you can even run Ubuntu off a small partition and keep Windows, just in case.

    GNex + Ubuntu = dream.

    I'll try these suggestions. I'm not familiar with Ubuntu. I'll check that out too. Thank you!

    It's another operating system based on Linux, the same general operating system Android is derived from (generally speaking). They work extremely well together.

    Lol yes but carving out a hard drive partition and installing ubuntu is not the go-to solution every android user is going to be able to roll with here.

    Have you enabled fast charge on your franco kernel, either through his app or rom control on aokp? This disables the computer from reading the phone as a storage device..

    No fast charge. I'll check my drivers again and the other suggestions when I can get time on my computer. Thanks again.

    It may be worthwhile to delete the old drivers and reinstall everything.

    Also check your USB port or try a different port. I have a powered USB hub that is designed to "fast charge" peripherals. Even if I don't have fast charge enabled on my ROM, plugging my phone into the the hub makes the phone think it is AC charging. One of my laptop ports also has that feature. You can just try a different port or check under battery when it is plugged in and see if/how it is charging.

    I was having a similar issue to the OP and fixed it by disabling fast charge based on your advice. Working like usual now. Thanks!
