Stop Android File Transfer from autostarting on OSX

Put this one liner in terminal to stop Android File Transfer from autostarting on OSX whenever you plug in your Android device.

PID=$(ps -fe | grep "[A]ndroid File Transfer Agent" | awk '{print $2}'); if [[ -n $PID ]]; then kill $PID; fi; mv "/Applications/Android File Transfer.app/Contents/Resources/Android File Transfer Agent.app" "/Applications/Android File Transfer.app/Contents/Resources/Android File Transfer Agent DISABLED.app"; mv "${HOME}/Library/Application Support/Google/Android File Transfer/Android File Transfer Agent.app" "${HOME}/Library/Application Support/Google/Android File Transfer/Android File Transfer Agent DISABLED.app"; osascript -e 'tell application "System Events" to delete every login item whose name is "Android File Transfer Agent"'
