I also systematically got a crash when trying to download the cover of one specific album, but all the other albums of my library could have their covers downloaded fine by Guayadeque.

I'm using Guayadeque 0.3.4
Can you do a backtrace for every problem please ? I will try to fix this problems if you give me more information about this problems.

For information, mounting a mtp device with fuse is not a problem.
You'll need the mtp-tools and mtpfs packages
(sudo apt-get install mtp-tools mtpfs)
Then identify your -connected, mouted as filesystem- device with mpt-detect
(mtp-detect | grep VID) / (mtp-detect | grep PID)
Disconnect your device
Then create a /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
(sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules)
and add the -single- line
subsystem=="usb",attr{VID}=="vendorid",attr{PID}=="productid",mode="0666"
where VID and PID are your own values
restart udev
(sudo service udev restart)
create a directory to mount your device in mtp mode
(sudo mkdir /mnt/music_device) or whatever
chmod the directory
(sudo chmod A+RWX /mnt/music_device) or whatever
if not already done, add yourself in fuse group
(sudo adduser YourAccountName fuse)
edit fuse.conf to allow other users
(sudo gedit /etc/fuse.conf)
and uncomment (remove # in front of) the line "user_allow_other"
DONE
When you connect your device, you can mount it with
(mtpfs -o allow_other /mnt/music_device) or whetever directory you created
And unmount with
(fusermount -u /mnt/music_device) or whetever directory you created
It could be useful to create alias for those ...

Now, in guayadeque, it's easy to create a "copy to" config to your device
