#StackBounty: #centos #android #mtp How to make Android MTP in CentOS7 available for all users?

Bounty: 50

I’m using Moto G4 play with Marshmallow; and CentOS 7. I’m able to mount the device and see the content as root, by using jmtpfs. First time I used sudo then I switched as root and then mounted, works fine on both occasions; but files are only visible for root user. personal user is not able to access the content

[shiva@jayan ~]$ sudo su -
[sudo] password for shiva:

[root@jayan ~]# jmtpfs /media/phone/
Device 0 (VID=22b8 and PID=2e82) is UNKNOWN.
Please report this VID/PID and the device model to the libmtp development team
Android device detected, assigning default bug flags
[root@jayan ~]# ll /media/phone/
total 0
drwxr-xr-x. 38 root root 0 Dec  3  4453203 Internal storage

But when I try to view it as my user, I get permission denied, as a dumb attempt I even tried to change user after mounting.

[shiva@jayan /]$ ll /media/phone 
ls: cannot access /media/phone: Permission denied
[shiva@jayan /]$ cd media/
[shiva@jayan media]$ ll
ls: cannot access phone: Permission denied
total 0
d????????? ? ? ? ?            ? phone
[shiva@jayan media]$ sudo chown shiva:shiva phone 
[sudo] password for shiva: 
chown: changing ownership of ‘phone’: Function not implemented

Then I tried to mount from my user, it detected no mtp 🙁

[root@jayan ~]# fusermount -u /media/phone
[root@jayan ~]# exit
logout
[shiva@jayan ~]$ jmtpfs /media/phone/
No mtp devices found.

Now my question is how to resolve this?
How to make mtp devices available for my user (or)
How to access files after mounting it as root! I tried using “sudo chmod -R 775, it ran forever :'( yet was not able to access those files
