    Is it possible to mount/use an external USB drive in nethunter???

    Question.
    Is it possible to mount a usb drive while running nethunter?

    The reason is so I may save files directly to a usb from the kali/nethunter console.

    I have tried fdisk -l
    But it lists, no drives?

    any advice would be helpful

    thanks in advance

    it should be supported unless the device cant supply enough power over otg to the drive (you may need to use y cable)
    when android mounts it, you can log into the chroot and it should automatically bind mount it somewhere in / (ls /*usb*) but it will probably use a vold overlay so unix permissions might not work on the fs

    ls /dev/block/sd* will show you a list of drives that the kernel detects, your otg would most likely be the last one (highest letter), you can try making a /mnt point for it and mounting it there from within the chroot for direct fs access

    Moving on.....
    I am able to attach usb drive and mount it, but now I want to use encryption on my usb drive,
    I have formatted my usb and have encrypted it, but I am unable to gain entry to my files on the encrypted device when trying to mount in nethunter.
    I can gain entry to usb when I plug it into my kali machine, but for some unknown reason nethunter does not recognize the device/filesystem.

    Here is what it says: and the commands I run:
    ls /dev/block/sd* >>>gives output of >>> /dev/block/sdb /dev/block/sdb1

    then I run:
    mount /dev/block/sdb1 >>>gives output of >>> mount: unknown filesystem type 'crypto_LUKS'

    I know i am doing something wrong but have no idea what : Can anyone help?
    Many thanks in advance for help
