    On Ubuntu 12.04 (gmtp 1.3.1), i obtain a segmentation fault with this on the console:

    Device 0 (VID=1004 and PID=631c) is UNKNOWN.
    Please report this VID/PID and the device model to the libmtp development team
    PTP_ERROR_IO: failed to open session, trying again after resetting USB interface
    LIBMTP libusb: Attempt to reset device
    Android device detected, assigning default bug flags
    Error 1: Get Storage information failed.
    Error 2: PTP Layer error 02fe: get_handles_recursively(): could not get object handles.
    Error 2: (Look this up in ptp.h for an explanation.)
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)

    I can help to narrow down the problem, keep me updated!

    Hi Angelo,

    Thank you for the bug report.

    I've see this problem a few times before, and the best solution is to upgrade libmtp to v1.1.5 and gMTP 1.3.4. Once upgraded to gMTP v.1.3.4, enable 'alternate access mode' and enable the setting to ignore album errors.

    Before attempting to connect within gMTP, ensure that your phone is unlocked and is at the home screen of the phone. (A locked Android device does not allow access to the underlying storage, and you'll get the "Error 1: Get Storage information failed." message).

    Again thank you for reporting the issue, and look forward to hearing from you once you've completed the above suggestions,

    Kind regards,
