# - A kernel supporting nfs (either built-in or as a module)
# On my Nexus 7 2012 I use the following kernel:

# Remember: if you have problems of system space, simply delete some of the default stuff.
LOCAL_DIRECTORY="/data/media/0/2TB"
REMOTE_URI="192.168.1.101:/srv/nfs/2TB"
# Yes, we need to set permissive SeLinux in order for this to work
# At least on Android 5.0, obviously
setenforce Permissive
# Create the mount directory, if needed
mkdir -p $LOCAL_DIRECTORY
# And actually mount what you need
# You can't mount to /sdcard/ but you CAN mount to /data/media/0
# Better mount ro, BTW
busybox mount -t nfs -o nolock,ro $REMOTE_URI $LOCAL_DIRECTORY
