    Normally when connecting my OnePlus One through USB, in the drop-down notification bar I can choose the USB mode. However, the option is not showing anymore. How do I change it?

    Kind regards

    I only have a "Storage & USB" option which just shows me the used up space on my phone. :s

    For some reason, seems for me, it doesn't "remember" that I set it to "Media Transfer Protocol". I've set it and after a while, it just forgets and defaults it to "Charging"

    REally annoying... Yeah this latest update is quite a regression than a progression.

    I agree - first it renamed the path to all my storage (making it appear that everything had disappeared from file manager), and now this. I can set the mode from the lockscreen pulldown, but the phone then forgets. No way to change the default, since Settings/Storage has been eliminated. I have gone to developer options (now also hidden until I search for them) and set USB config there to MTP. Again, this has no lasting effect. Was there any reason for these changes? Can they be reversed?

    From what I read, it's for security purposes... But at the same time, I would think that if YOU the user changes it in Developers Options, it would REMEMBER it and not to where you have to change it each time you plug it in. As that's more of a regression than progression.

    This is a stock Marshmallow behaviour. No way to change it.

    From past two days, when i connect my mobile(oneplus one) to laptop, i'm unable to see the notification panel which lets us choose MTP or PTP etc..

    But it still doesn't save the settings, just reverts back to charging (why doesn't it save this setting, so annoying) :mad:

    Go to About Phone.
    Tap Build number until it reads Developer Options.
    Open Developer Options.
    Under Debugging Menu Switch on Android Debugging.
    Switch on Debugging Notify.
    Plug in phone with charging USB into computer.
    Scroll down to Select USB configuration.
    Select MTP (Media Transfer Protocol).
    An icon should appear on your phone(Android symbol).
    Open My computer & it should showA0001.

    If not then you need to install Windows Media Centre for the drivers.


    It should now work if you have the right version installed.

    Even with the official OnePlus drivers installed as well as Windows Media Centre, it simply will not work. Having the exact same issue as everyone else on top. Settings don't seem to stick and nothing shows up on the pull down tab when connected, even with the official USB cable. The phone is just trash in this respect.

    This worked for me. Thanks for sharing. People that are not Android Devs have no idea, like me ;)

    Hi I still have the same issue. Using the developers mode option makes my Windows 10 saying it does not recognize the USB-device. Using the "normal" mode shows A0001 and starts charging the phone.

    Everytime I am attaching the phone I have to choose for the "USB file transfer" option. Something to be changed? Currently using 13.1.2-ZNH2KAS3P0-bacon.

    It's the current normal way to do that... unfortunately!
