copying files to the Neo

An easy way to copy files to the neo is to use scp. From the host, use these commands:

for a single file:

scp (filename) root@(phone ip):/(destination)

for a directory:

scp -r (dirname) root@(phone ip):/(destination)

For example, I copied some music to the cf card (I defined ‘phone’ as in my hosts file):

scp -r The\ Millions\ Too\ Many/ root@phone:/media/card

I averaged around 250KB/s for copying over the USB 1 link, not great but tolerable.

note that you should use a recent build if writing to the card, as there was a bug that could cause corruption of the card on earlier systems (pre ???)
