Not sure it'll help, but in the case of you my Galaxy S2 smartphone, I
simply switched the phone to mass-storage mode.
(Settings->Applications->Development->USB debugging)
Once enabled, you can simply access the file-system on your device
like any other USB mass-storage device. (Disk-on-key, HDD, etc)
