If you can transfer one file successfully over your cable now, can you use tar, cpio, or pax to create a single archive file containing everything you want to transfer and use the archive files to transfer your data back and forth?

What command(s) do you use to successfully transfer a file over your cable?

Can you mount the Android phone's filesystem (read-only obviously) from Solaris using your cable? That would allow you to rsync from the phone to Solaris.

Does your phone have multiple filesystems mounted, or is everything in the root filesystem? If it has multiple filesystems and you can put the files you want to sync on a filesystem that your phone doesn't need to write to while files are being synced, you could unmount that filesystem on your phone, remount it read-only, and then mount it read-write on Solaris to rsync back to your phone. (Just don't forget to unmount the Adroid filesystem from Solaris before you unmount it again on your phone and remount it read-write on your phone.)

Does your phone's OS include support for an NFS server? If so, can you export an NFS filesystem from your phone through your cable or by WiFi and mount that NFS filesystem on Solaris so you can rsync both ways?

Does you phone's OS include support for mounting NFS filesystems from a remote NFS server? If so export an NFS filesystem from your Solaris system and mount it on your phone...

If you can't cross-mount filesystems, are ftp, rcp, or even uucp possible?
