Google searches reveal lots of mixed results and
very dated information.
I'm looking for a few general statements about how to
transfer files from a linux PC to iphone 4 over USB ,
and also which wifi pci or USB dongles are best for linux
( as in ---- if the dongle is plugged in, the file browser immediately
shows the wifi connection ( after SSID/WEP blah setup ).
1. Is there - today - reasonable way to transfer files from linux usb to
iphone4 ? I know it's easy the other way - from iphone to linux or win.
the iphone has 12 + gigs of free space, bigger than
my 8 gig thumb drives. and I'm tired of a 32 gig thumb
drive not being compatible with Windows and linux.
( iphone is NOT on phone carrier... )
(I'd like to simply use a smartphone- either android or
iphone 4 -- as a FLASH/thumb drive instead of non-compat
thumb drives. This is a sore spot for me about compati.
2. I have a couple of older routers/wifi. But don't like to idea
of learning how to do the setup by connecting them with ethernet
to a CentOS6 box. Is there some automatic way to do it ?
(Im not comfortable with wanting to do this )
3. PCI card: is there a couple of well known chips that are linux
compatible IN THE DISTRO. Don't want to D/L third party
4. How much memory does a newish Android support ?
I have a year old smartphone w/ 4 cores, android 6 (
no updates available ) and about 2 gigs. I also plan to use it
as a file transfer device. and want more memory anyway ...
