    Code:
    udevadm trigger

    If it still doesn't work, can you try running the usb mode switch command as
    root user after it's plugged in, also check dmesg output afterwards....
    Code:
    usb_modeswitch -v 04e8 -p 6860

    udevadm trigger didn't print or change anything. Here's the usb mode switch output, which from what I understand was successful:

    Hi
    Are there any phone settings (usb utilities) you can apply to set it as
    mass storage, or is it already set?

    It can't be set to Mass Storage mode, it can only connect through MTP and PTP. But yes, through MTP it's for connecting the storage and transferring files. Only other setting is the one for USB Debugging, but I don't think it changes anything (but I can enable it if you suspect it does). There's also one to Allow Mock Locations in the same menu, but I don't know if it's related to this.

    Hi
    My ASUS Transformer is running 4.1.1 (Jellybean) and has the same
    settings, you could try enabling debug and see if that makes a
    difference. But all I needed to do was add the rule and run the trigger
    command and all was fine.....

    @MirceaKitsune: With the USB mass storage access gone, some developers (XDA) have come up with an standalone application which provides the popular UMS access to the MicroSD card:

    Enable USB Mass Storage Option In Samsung Galaxy S3 [How To]

    I hope this option works for you.

    I enabled USB Debugging and Allow Mock Locations to be sure, same thing. What else do I try?

    I seen that, but it requires my device to be rooted. I'm still using the original firmware and don't plan on rooting it for now.

    Did anybody mention "Airdroid"? It's a free app, that makes the data on a phone available through http(s) access. I gave it a try because I couldn't find the cable (kids), thought there might be an app for accessing data on the phone, gave it a search and found this one.

    Yes, it seems like a useful app. I decided against mentioning it, as the OP seems to want file-system access solution via USB. While searching numerous threads discussing this topic, it seems to me that there are a lot of users who have abandoned MTP for now, in favour of using alternative connectivity like this.

    I hesitated, and did not post yesterday for the same reason. But sometimes a temporary workaround can take the pressure off. I can recall lots of situations where "getting it to work" was the #1 priority, doing so buys you time to take a good, relaxed look at things, maybe start from the beginning.

    Very true - alternative solutions and workarounds are better than no solution at all
