For Windows I guess I'd use WinSCP.
Filezilla doesn't really work for me on my phone; I guess I'll try Dolphin.

I do appreciate the help and I'm really loving Mobian right now. It is my secondary phone right now but I could use it for my daily driver as everything important to me is working like 4G calling incoming and outgoing, SMS, and Geary works pretty well. Map navigation is still a work in progress and battery life is still poor but this project is moving at light speed IMHO and a huge thanks to the Devs!!

How did you get samba working?

A simplified GUI for unloading pictures would be handy,  sometime in the future ?

No I meant I use Dolphin on the computer, on the phone itself using the built in file manager works just fine. It seems like it's Nautilus straight out of GNOME but I don't know if it's customized for Phosh, so I won't definitively say it's vanilla Nautilus.

Most DEs come with a file manager which can connect straight to SFTP server, either through a menu option (like the "File -> Connect to Server..." menu option in Nautilus) and/or through specifying the SFTP protocol in the address bar (like "sftp://[username]@server[:port]" in Dolphin).

My advice would be to connect your phone to wifi, and mount it using sshfs.

Apart from that the usual suspects (ssh/sftp/nfs/samba) come to mind.
Where can we get the package from? Is there a command to grab it on Pop_OS?

Just burn Jumpdrive onto a SD and put it in the phone and boot the phone connected to the computer and you will have full access to the eMMc.
