That's a bug in Android (or perhaps just your device, since on that
thread other users report ICS does support USB mass storage), not
CentOS.  I understand that's not helpful to you, but it's good to be

I'd install an scp or sftp client on your Android and use that for file
transfer to your CentOS box, as suggested by many folks on that thread.
There are probably a bunch of clients in the Play store.
