I can mount the xa2 as mtp device without errors. If i try to copy my whatsapp backup to the android_storage, i get following error on my linux computer: libmtp-error: could not send object propeety list. The same problem with my win 7 machine.. After that i can not longer see my android_storage in the file browser. I have to restart the android support.

You should be able to scp the files from the first device to the second over wifi, but there may be an issue with permissions and so you may have to tar them first.

I can also copy the backup to sdcard of the xperia device but i can not move it from sdcard to the android folder. Maybe this is a permission problem, but why can i create a folder in android storage without error.?

There is a bug accessing Android Storage through the android_storage folder in the nemo home directory (I think this was mentioned in the Release Notes for the Android beta somewhere).

With Developer-Mode active you should be able to access the same data over /home/.android/data/media/0/ without the Android layer crashing. You might need to restart the Android Layer afterwards to See the new Files

I suppose that the fact that Android Storage disappears sometimes is linked to a bug in the Android support? If i restart Android it appears again...
