There are no builtin means for managing media devices. They will work if there is a FUSE filesystem for that and you add a configuration setting to use this FUSE or when mounted by any other software, but vifm itself doesn't have such functionality.

Quick search gives something called jmtpfs (this might be newer version).

   filetype *.jmtpfs
    	\ {Mount with jmtpfs}

Make a file matching "*.jmtpfs" and open it in Vifm.


It may however be very slow (at least at file listing) and affected by the Android bug which makes the changes not appear on MTP immediately.

I have also tried using the PTP protocol with gphotofs (configured just like jmtpfs), which was not affected by the same issues, but was very limited (had to give the files an image-like extension for one of the directions) unless you switch the smartphone itself into MTP mode while using it through PTP.

If you would like to make a bug report or feature request consider using GitHub, SourceForge or e-mail. Posting such things here is acceptable, but this is not a perfect place for them.
