How To Active USB Mass Storage on Galaxy S4

As usual, Samsung put the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean version in action for their latest Samsung Galaxy S4 flagship smartphone that do not support the USB Mass Storage feature, however the Galaxy S4 enjoys the latest MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) service, you may say that MTP is a fine solution to share data between computer and smartphone but many of us don’t love it because of working errors.
