I've been searching for answer to this question for quite some time now and finally decided I should as a question here.

So I've managed to find a kernel module (cifs.ko) for my kernel build on xda-developers forum/site. Then I ssh to my phone (GT-I9300) and as root issue

insmod cifs.ko

The module loads correctly. I can mount SMB shares using command

mount -t cifs -o username=login,password=secret // /mount/point/goes/here

and this mounts correctly. Then I can cd into mounted directory and create, modify, delete, rename files/directories.

But when I start TitaniumBackup and change backup directory location to mounted folder and try to backup any application I get error "insufficient free storage space". Now how I could mount my share (I can host it as scp,sftp,ftp,smb,nfs,webdav) ?

I also tried using busybox to mount nfs share but I cannot find nfs.ko for my kernel and when I try to mount my share using busybox (or normal) I get an error that the device doesn't exist.

What I want to achieve is to backup my apps + data directly to my NAS instead of doing it locally first and then copying backups to my NAS.

Please help.

Do you see any new files created by TitaniumBackup and what are their sizes? Also tell us the output of 'mount' and 'df' – golimar May 20 '13 at 12:04
Open a ticket at the titanium bug-tracker and ask for this feature (titanium read/write to samba shares). – Ярослав Рахматуллин Jul 23 '13 at 23:40
@ЯрославРахматуллин: Yeah. It seems that I have to do that to get working what I need. Pity that this wasn't included in the first place. Anyway thanks for your help. – termil0r Aug 8 '13 at 7:50
Did you manage to find a solution? – Cray Jun 12 at 0:11
