Stop Android File Transfer from autostarting on OSX

March 31, 2015 — Leave a comment

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"'
